India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Highlights: The Ross Taylor Century gives New Zealand four victories over India in Hamilton | Cricket News
NEW ZEALAND WINS INDIA FOR 4 WICKETS
Tom Latham | New Zealand Captain:
A great performance by the boys. It was nice to maintain composure at the end and cross the line. We saw how difficult it was to defend with the left-right combination. It is good to make winning contributions. The way Ross played was fantastic. We weren’t exactly where we wanted to be with the ball. So we have to improve and hope to play the perfect game at Eden Park.
Virat Kohli | Captain of India:
An outstanding performance of New Zealand. We thought 347 was good enough, especially after the start we got with the ball. I think Tom’s tickets took away the game. We were decent in the countryside, we missed an opportunity. However, we need to improve. I have to say that the opposition played better than us today. The two new starters gave us a good start, we hope they continue doing the same. The hundred Shreyas was outstanding and KL was also really good.
Ross Taylor | Match Player:
It was nice to cross the line. Restricting them to less than 350 gave us a chance. We were lucky with the combination of left and right hand and could point to the short limit of the side of the leg. It has been a happy hunting ground for me. It was nice to be there at the end after I left three times towards the end in the T20 series.

MORE THAN 0.2: WIDE! Bumrah throws it short and wide, loses the tram, New Zealand off the mark
Kiwi openers Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls are in the middle. Jasprit Bumrah is the first to arrive in India. The biggest successful persecution in Hamilton is 347 by New Zealand against Australia in 2007.
India ran to 50 without losing a wicket in the eighth, but then lost debutants Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal in no time. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer took control of the game, did not care about the situation and obtained a 102-run position. Kohli was fired, but KL Rahul arrived and completely changed the complexion of the game. India was just over 5 years old when Kohli fell, but Rahul came out and simply launched the Kiwi attack. That infused some energy in Iyer, which began to recover after a bad start. The duo added 136 for the fourth wicket, in just 105 balls, which took the game away from the Kiwis. Kedar Jadhav played an incredible 28 cameo of only 15 balls.

The captain of New Zealand, Tom Latham, says that the reason is due to the story in which persecution on the ground is favored, as it becomes difficult to defend under the lights. He reports that Neesham and Grandhomme are multi-faceted, while the sewing attack consists of Tim Southee and Hamish Bennett. He also says that Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi would be their spinners. When asked if they could trust an ODI that was played 5 months ago, Latham is confident they can keep up their good streak.
The captain of India, Virat Kohli also, admits that he would have played first, since it is a short ground and under lights, the batting becomes easier. But now he is looking to hit well, especially in the absence of Rohit Sharma. He is super excited to see a new opening combination in Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal. He reports that Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal are the 5 types that are missing from the team. He believes that Kuldeep Yadav’s variety leans him ahead of Chahal. He feels that at home, they can be dominant like anyone else, but it is the foreign conditions that will put them to the test. Therefore, he believes that a 5-0 victory in the T20I puts them in a very good perspective. He adds that, since this year focuses mainly on the T20I, many new faces tested in the ODI would be seen.
India (playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul (w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
New Zealand (Playing XI): Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Tom Latham (w / c), Tom Blundell, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett
RELEASE REPORT: Scott Styris says that the soil used is Mohali soil. VVS Laxman notes that there is no grass cover since New Zealand’s batting is not as strong. He thinks it is a good pitch to hit and could help turn later in the innings. Styris adds that the pitch seems a bit sticky, so the ball can initially stick to the surface, but then it must enter the bat as the game continues.
