Vastavam web: New Zealand’s senior-most batsman Ross Taylor Monday urged his team to focus on the Indian top-order rather than “get caught up” with run-machine Virat Kohli during the upcoming limited overs series. The tour starts Wednesday with the first ODI here. India will be playing five One-dayers and three T20 Internationals against the ‘Black Caps’.
Entering the Test series worried about how to decode Kohli, the Australians recently learnt it the hard way as Cheteshwar Pujara stole the thunder Down Under, helping his team to an epic triumph. Taylor doesn’t want his team to follow a similar approach. Taylor had his first net session at the McLean Park after his finger injury during the home series against Sri Lanka. While Kohli averages a staggering 113 in ODIs in 2018, Taylor’s average is 92 in the same period across 13 ODIs.
