IND vs NZ: We Did Some Good Stuff with Ball at Start and in Middle Overs – Tom Latham
Centurion Tom Latham said after his team’s facile seven-wicket victory in the inaugural ODI here on Friday that India’s total of 306 for 7 on a tiny Eden Park stadium was about average and that the credit for that goes to New Zealand bowlers for their performance during powerplay and middle overs.
New Zealand triumphed in 47.1 overs thanks to Latham’s 145 not out of 104 balls and a 221-run, unbroken match-winning partnership with captain Kane Williamson (94 not out).
IND vs NZ:
Team India lost the opening match of the one-day international series against New Zealand by seven wickets on Friday in Auckland, which was a letdown. Shikar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, and Shreyas Iyer put up a strong batting performance in the first innings, but their efforts were overshadowed by Tom Latham’s century and a tenacious Kane Williamson. While defending a daunting total of 306, the Men in Blue had made a great start, but the Indian bowlers were rendered insignificant in the face of a massive 221-run partnership between the Kiwi pair for the fourth wicket. Only twice in ODI matches against India has New Zealand successfully chased down a target of 300 or more. With two more games to go, the Black Caps enjoy a 1-0 series advantage.
India: 306 for 7 in 50 overs (Shreyas Iyer 80, Shikhar Dhawan 72, Shubman Gill 50; Lockie Ferguson 3/59, TimSouthee 3/73)
New Zealand: 309-3 in 47.1 overs (T. Latham 145 not out, K. Williamson 94 not out; U. Malik 2-66, S. Thakur 1-63)
India: Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant, 4 Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Yuzvendra Chahal.
New Zealand: Kane Williamson (C), Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Matt Henry, Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson.
Devon Conway attempted an expansive drive off a rapid ball, but instead got an outside edge that allowed Rishabh Pant to make a simple catch, giving Umran his first ODI wicket.
Umran’s second victim was Daryl Mitchell after he sliced one in the direction of deep point. He didn’t bowl the finest delivery of the day with that one, but the pressure he created with his ear-piercing velocity undoubtedly assisted him in taking the wicket. After an outstanding display by the Indian batsmen, tearaway bowler Umran Malik (2/66) made his presence known with his thunderbolts on debut, albeit the kid from Jammu turned out to be pricey.
