Hopefully woh totka haar ka aapko aaj khatam hote hue dikhega: Ravindra Jadeja on India’s record against NZ in ICC tournaments

Ravindra Jadeja, the premier all-rounder of the Indian cricket team, has talked about how the Men in Blue are looking forward to hopefully breaking the jinx of New Zealand in the ICC tournaments on Sunday, October 22. At the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, India are playing against New Zealand in the top of the table clash in the ODI World Cup 2023.

Notably, the record of Team India against New Zealand in recent years in the ICC tournaments is nothing to write home about. The Men in Blue have lost the World Test Championship (WTC) final in 2021, group stage match in T20 World Cup 2021, and the semi-final of the ODI World Cup 2019 to the Blackcaps.

The build-up to the group stage match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup has been about how Indian batters are going to cope against the New Zealand fast bowlers in the early stages of their innings. But the role of the bowling lineup of the Men in Blue in restricting the Blackcaps batters can’t be understated one bit.

Ravindra Jadeja had his take about the recent run of bad results for the Indian cricket team against New Zealand, stating, “Hopefully woh totka haar ka aapko aaj khatam hote hue dikhega (Hopefully the jinx of losses will end in front of your eyes today).”

Moreover, in the semi-final of the ODI World Cup 2019 against New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester, Ravindra Jadeja was involved in resurrecting the Indian batting innings from a hopeless position, alongside his compatriot MS Dhoni. Although he managed to score a fifty on that day, his contribution wasn’t enough for team in reaching the grand finale of the competition, after they suffered a tough 18 run loss.
