World Cup 2019 Warm-Up: 5 reasons that led to India's downfall against New Zealand at The Oval

New Zealand fast bowlers exposed Indian batsmen weakness in the warm-up game before World Cup as the Kiwi beat the Men in Blue by 6 wickets at The Oval.

India, who are entering the World Cup as the favourites didn't live up to the expectations as the Virat Kohli-led side was completely outclassed by the Blackcaps in every department.Trent Boult's four-for restricted India to a moderate total of 179 as the lone warrior among Indian batsmen was Ravindra Jadeja who hit 54 runs off 50 balls.If Jadeja wouldn't have stepped upon the occasion, the scoreboard might look even more embarrassing for the two-time champions.

Apart from Jadeja, the only positive outcome was the short spell Jasprit Bumrah who continued to trouble opposition with his toe-crushing yorkers. In his four-over spell, Bumrah gave only 2 runs and took the crucial wicket of Colin Munro.Team India desperately need to rectify their issues before the group stage commences and the next warm-up game against Bangladesh on May 28 will be a key match for them.Here are the five reasons that led to India's downfall against New Zealand at The Oval.
