Mike Hesson’s Tips
Mike Hesson, who is the former coach of New Zealand, helped the team to reach the final of the ICC World Cup 2015.
He focused on some of the personal clashes which he is eagerly looking forward to. Hesson said, “Trent Boult versus Rohit Sharma in ODIs will be an interesting and fascinating match-up with a quite swing on offer.”
The pitch conditions will definitely test the Indian batsmen the most. Hesson also declared that facing Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal is going to be an issue for New Zealand’s middle-order batsmen.
He is hoping for Boult’s comeback for the ODI series as he is an important player for New Zealand in all formats. Hesson says that Rohit has to play cautiously in the first session and not go hard at the ball.
