Tip Summary

  • New Zealand have an edge as they won the first One Day International by seven wickets.
  • The team was brilliant with the bat as it took them only 47.1 overs to chase the target of 307 runs.
  • India will have the last chance to save the series on Sunday and continue their winning ride in the 50-over format.

New Zealand need just one more victory to be done and dusted with the three-match ODI series. After losing the T20I series by 1-0, the team bounced back in the 50-over format. They hammered India by seven wickets in the first One Day International to take a lead of 1-0 in the series. The Blackcaps will be now eager to take an unassailable lead as they will square off against India in the second One Day International of the three-match series at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday. 

The first match saw New Zealand winning the toss and opting to bat bowl first. Batting in the first innings, India got off to a dream start with both the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill, in excellent form. The two batters hammered 72 and 50 runs respectively to stitch an opening partnership of 124 runs. Shreyas Iyer continued the exploits in the middle by playing a whirlwind knock of 80 runs off 76 balls. 

However, the Indian bowlers could not continue the momentum. The second innings saw New Zealand batters dominating the game. Tom Latham exceeded all expectations with a knock of 145 runs. Meanwhile, skipper Kane Williamson also stamped his authority over the field by hammering 94 runs. The two together took the team to victory in 47.1 overs. 

The Kiwis will be hoping to make the most out of the momentum gained on Sunday.

New Zealand’s wicketkeeper-batter Tom Latham delivered one of the finest performances of his ODI career in the first One Day International against India. When his team was in trouble while chasing 307 runs, he stepped run to ensure a lead of 1-0. After facing 104 balls, Latham scored 145 runs with the help of 19 fours and five sixes. His 212-run unbeaten partnership with skipper Kane Williamson was the highlight of the match. The wicketkeeper took the player of the match award home in the first game. We are again expecting him to fire on Sunday.

Suryakumar Yadav was the top performer for India in the three-match T20I series. He ended up as the highest run-getter with 124 runs in two matches at a strike rate of 203.28. He also took the cricket fraternity by storm with his century in the second T20 International. However, it was a rare failure for the middle-order batter in the first ODI. Playing at Eden Park, Yadav failed to cash on his pleasant form. Lockie Ferguson dismissed him while he was playing at four runs. However, the Mumbai Stalwart is expected to get back to scoring runs in the second ODI.

The pace sensation Lockie Ferguson was the standout performer with the ball in the first match. He picked three crucial wickets, including Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant, and Suryakumar Yadav, at an economy rate of 5.9 to make a difference in the game. The bowler also has a glorious record in the 50-over format with 80 wickets in 46 matches. Thus, he can be the best bowler to place your money on as the top wicket-taker of the match.
