So far, two RSWS 2022 games have been played at Holkar Stadium. Due to how sticky it is, the wicket hasn’t exactly been a batsman’s dream. The ball doesn’t hit the bat very well, but as the batters spend more time in the middle, it gets easier. The team that wins the toss must choose to bowl so that they can decide how fast or slow to play their innings based on the target.
Probable Playing XIs
Naman Ojha, Sachin Tendulkar (c), Suresh Raina, Stuart Binny, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Manpreet Singh, Irfan Pathan, Munaf Patel, Rahul Sharma, Pragyan Ojha
New Zealand Legends:
Anton Devcich, Jamie How, Dean Brownlie, Ross Taylor (c), Neil Broom, Gareth Hopkins (wk), Jason Spice, Hamish Bennett, Kyle Mills, Scott Styris, James Franklin
Top contenders for the match’s MVP award are:
Most likely best hitter of the game:
Suresh Raina looked to in good shape and form in the first match against South Africa Legends as he played some elegant strokes and scored a well-made 33 off 22 with a six and four fours. He might bat third again, like he did in the first match. This would give him time to turn a good start into a big innings.
Probable best bowler of the match:
Rahul Sharma recently said that he was done with all kinds of sports. But in the first match, the leg spinner showed that he still has some gas in the tank. South Africa Legends didn’t have a chance to win the game after. He bowled a spell in which he took three wickets for 17 runs in four overs. On the Holkar Cricket Stadium surface, he could be the difference again against West Indies.
