New Zealand police warn public to beware of Virat Kohli’s Indian team in funny post

first_imgVirat Kohli’s Team India have asserted their dominance over New Zealand in the ongoing five-match ODI series. The visitors are leading 2-0 after two comprehensive wins in Napier and Mount Maunganui and will be hoping to seal an unassailable 3-0 lead when the two teams meet in the third ODI on Monday.India had arrived in New Zealand after sealing their first-ever bilateral ODI series win in Australia. However, the series against New Zealand was expected to be one of their toughest tests in the World Cup year, considering the Asian giants’ not-so-good record in New Zealand.However, New Zealand have failed the trial by spin so far as the spin twins of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have bamboozled the Black Caps, picking up 12 wickets between them in two matches.Indian batsmen have backed up the bowlers’ good efforts as the top five are fit and firing.India’s dominance in the ongoing series is so much so that New Zealand police Eastern District Police have come up with a funny post, taking a dig at the Kane Williamson-led home team.Shortly after New Zealand were handed a 90-run thrashing in the second ODI, the Facebook page of Eastern District Police wrote: “Police would like to issue a warning to members of the public about the exploits of a group touring the country at the moment.”Witnesses report seeing this group badly assault an innocent looking bunch of New Zealanders in both Napier and Mt Maunganui in the last week. Extra care should be taken if you are carrying anything that looks like a cricket bat or ball.”advertisementNew Zealand captain Kane Williamson said the hosts were left frustrated after two successive defeats in the ODI series. The third-ranked ODI side will face a must-win situation when the two teams meet for the third ODI at Bay Oval.”Little frustrating, not so much the loss but how we are losing is the problem. Credit to India. Some of the dismissals were a result of us going too hard maybe. If we had wickets in hand, you never know but we didn’t have wickets in hand. Those are the lessons that we need to take ahead,” Williamson said.Meanwhile, New Zealand head coach Gary Stead heaped praise on Virat Kohli’s wrecker-in-chief, Kuldeep Yadav but expressed confidence that the Black Caps will be able to find ways to tackle the spin threat in the remainder of the ODI series.”I have faith in our guys – we played the spin bowling very well against Sri Lanka and they had a lot of spinners as well, so it’s not like we can’t, we just haven’t done it effectively. The two wrist-spinners they have here are very effective bowlers – our challenge is to find a way to be better,” Stead said.Also Read | Kuldeep Yadav a clever bowler, uses googly very well: New Zealand coach Gary SteadAlso Read | Virat Kohli charms fans with autographs after India win 2nd ODI vs New ZealandAlso Read | Mohammad Azharuddin praises India’s dominant performance vs New Zealand in 2nd ODIAlso See:last_img read more
