Nz vs Ind Match Summary
India was in the lead at the time while New Zealand was having trouble getting going. But the batting that came afterwards was simply brilliant. He came out looking fluid, reached his half-century at almost a run-a-ball, and then took his performance to a whole other level starting in the 40th over.
In that particular over, Thakur insisted on only bowling short deliveries, which Latham kept hitting into the boundary. He completely destroyed India with a six and four straight fours. The only person to bother him was Umran, and he had a strong performance.
Washington also used the money wisely. But besides those two, the rest of them were pummelling. Fair enough, this pitch had much more to offer than what India had scored in the first Innings
Can India bounce back in the second ODI?
With Latham’s special strike, New Zealand now leads the series 1-0. As Dhawan noted, this young Indian team has a lot to learn. Are they able to recover in Hamilton for the second ODI on Sunday?
