Not Playing A Warm-Up A Disadvantage Says Cheteshwar Pujara
As against India, New Zealand have played two Tests against England leading to the WTC final. New Zealand batting mainstay Ross Taylor on Tuesday said that the matches against England have been helpful for the Kiwis.
"It was ideal preparation, playing two Tests against England. Guys gained some match preparation and experience in such conditions. Gives our player a little more confidence," Taylor told media on Tuesday.
New Zealand also had an intra-squad game like India ahead of the two-Test series against England. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Indian team will not get to play any warm-up against any local side throughout their three-and-a-half month stay.
