The first match of the 3 ODI series will be played between India and New Zealand on Wednesday. This match between the two teams will start at 13:30 Indian time. At the same time, New Zealand fast bowlers Tim Southee and Trent Boult will not make the squad. The absence of both bowlers is considered a major blow to the New Zealand team. Now, the acting captain of the New Zealand national team, Tom Latham, has given a big statement about the absence of Tim Southee and Trent Boult.
Tom Latham said the absence of Tim Southee and Trent Boult is a big blow to our team. In fact, Tim Southee has returned to New Zealand after the series against Pakistan. While Trent Boult is not part of the New Zealand Central contract. Due to this, he is not playing in the match. Tom Latham said that other than Kane Williamson, there will be no Tim Southee or Trent Boult on our team. It will not be easy for our team to fill this empty space. However, the absence of these players will give other players a better chance to prove themselves.
