  • That is all we have for you from this first ODI. A convincing win in the end for India but they cannot afford to relax. New Zealand are know for their comebacks. The 2nd ODI will be played at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. The game will begin at 1500 local time (0200 GMT). Join in for that, till then adios!
  • Victorious Indian captain, Virat Kohli, says that when he lost the toss, he felt that about 300 par was coming. Praises the bowlers for restricting the Kiwis and adds that one could not have asked for anything better. Stresses that the entire fast bowling group believes that they can knock any side over and on Shami, reckons that this is the fittest he has seen him. On the pitch, Kohli says that it got slower in the second half of the innings. Credits the wrist spinners for varying their pace and lines and lengths in the first half. On Dhawan's knock, Virat says that he has always been in good touch but he needs to develop the habit of closing out games. On the players walking off due to the 'sun' effect, VK smiles and says that never in his life has he walked off the field due to this reason and when he last played here in 2014, he felt the same experience. At that time, he says that this rule was not there and is glad that it has been introduced.
  • New Zealand skipper, Kane Willimson, admits that it was not the best effort from New Zealand. Agrees that India were at their best on a surface which was not great for the batsmen. Credits the Indian bowlers for choking the Kiwi batters and feels that at least 250 was minimum on this surface. On the 12-day break before this game, Williamson says that sometimes long breaks help, sometimes they don't but does not want to cite it as an excuse. Flatly says that the Black Caps did not adjust to the conditions. Wants his team to move on from this game quickly and come back harder in the second game.
  • MOHAMMED SHAMI HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Virat Kohli is translating for him. Shami says that all his success is due to the team work. Stresses that the main part is of execution of the plans. Adds that if plan A does not work then plan B is discussed with the skipper. On his fitness, Shami says that he spent 18 months after injury in rehab and the trainers over there helped him get back to cricket. On the comparison of the pitches between Australia and New Zealand, Shami says they are more or less similar but points out the differences in the ground dimensions and the weather. States further that the last series here was a good learning curve for the bowlers. Ends by saying that all the bowlers enjoyed bowling here since they have come into cooler conditions from the hot ones in Australia.
  • The Kiwi bowlers were good but didn't have enough runs to play with. Ferguson and Bracewell got a wicket each but that was all about it. You cannot win a match if you have 157 on the board and not take the opposition all out. Earlier on, Shami, Kuldeep and Chahal restricted New Zealand to a paltry 157. Stay tuned for the post match presentation.
  • As easy as it gets! After some wonderful bowling, India back it up with good batting and win the first match of the series. Dhawan and Rohit played Powerplay 1 well enough. The players then had to stop play because the 'sun' was disturbing them. After they came back, Rohit fell but Kohli anchored the innings well and didn't allow the Black Caps a sniff. The Indian skipper missed out on a fifty but Dhawan went on and scored his 50 taking India to victory alongside Rayudu handing India a big 8-wicket win.
  • 34.5That will do. Length ball outside off, Rayudu taps it with soft hands to the off side and responds to Dhawan's call who makes it in time. INDIA BEAT NEW ZEALAND BY 8 WICKETS!
  • 34.4Still level! Outside off, Rayudu pushes it to point.
  • 34.3Not yet, Rayudu punches it to cover-point.
  • 34.2FOUR! Scores tied! Pitches it up outside off, Rayudu comes down the track and lofts this over covers. Boundary. Just one run away now.

  • 33.3Pushed to the cover region by Ambati.
  • 33.3Wide! Short ball down the leg side, Rayudu goes to pull but cannot reach it. 150 comes up with that wide. More 6 runs required.
  • 33.2Full on middle and leg, Rayudu gives it for the mid on fielder to collect.
  • 33.1Played through mid-wicket by Dhawan. The batsmen have run through for a single.

  • 32.4Rayudu nudges this ball fine and goes for a quick run. The fielder hits the timber but Dhawan is well home.
  • 32.3Almost! Outside off, Rayudu looks to run it down but misses it. The ball goes through to the keeper. Now then, Snicko shows us that there was a spot on the bat once it passed the bat. New Zealand don't appeal, wouldn't have mattered though in the contest of the game.
  • 32.2Short ball on off, Dhawan hops and guides it to third man and gives Rayudu the strike.
  • 32.1Over the stump height, Dhawan guides it to short third man.

  • 30.5Not this time. Drives it towards covers and gives the strike to Shikhar.
  • 30.4Once again to that cover region where the single is refused.
  • 30.3Comes back in and beats Rayudu. He plays the ball late and is beaten for pace.
  • 30.2Rayudu pushes it to the cover region and sends Dhawan back. Could have pinched a run there as the fielder was a bit deep.

  • 28.6Beaten! Length outside off, Rayudu looks to block it but is beaten. 136/2
  • 28.5FOUR! Edge and a boundary! Length ball outside off, Rayudu feels for it and gets an outside edge past the diving keeper to the third man fence.
  • Ambati Rayudu walks into the middle next.
  • 28.4OUT! Back-to-back dismissals in the 40s for Virat Kohli. He departed for 46 in the MCG ODI. Him not converting is very rare. Short ball down the leg side, Kohli looks to hook it but gets a feather off the glove to the keeper behind. The keeper appeals and Virat walks. We have seen a similar dismissal like this before. Too little too late for the Kiwis though.
  • 28.3Kohli has driven it to mid on.

  • 25.4A bit short outside off, Dhawan cuts it to deep covers. They cross.
  • 25.3Driven through mid on by Kohli. They pick up a single.
  • 25.2On the pads again to the left-hander, Dhawan tucks it away around the corner for one more.

  • 24.5Good length delivery outside off, pushed away on the off side.
  • 24.4Not out! There is some bat involved and Kohli survives. Length delivery angling in from around off, Virat moves across to play it on the leg side but is caught on the pads. A loud shout goes up and so does the finger. He quickly signals the 'T' which indicates that there was some bat. Replays roll in and Snicko confirms the same.
  • Review taken. Virat Kohli is caught leg before and adjudged out. He, however, has taken the DRS. Signals to his partner that there was some bat involved. Let's see now...
  • 24.3Slow, dipping full toss outside off, hit down to long off for a single.
  • 24.2Connects with the cut shot this time. Unfortunately, finds the point fielder with it.
  • 24.1Good length delivery in the channel outside off, from around the wicket, Shikhar tries to cut but but misses.
  • 23.6Flicked with the wrists through the vacant mid-wicket area for a run. 115/1
  • 23.5Shorter length ball outside off, Dhawan slaps it from the back foot through the covers and comes back for the second. Southee out in the deep moves to his left and makes a sliding stop.

  • 23.3Quite full in line of the stumps, whipped through wide mid on, to the man in the deep, for a single.

  • 23.1Quite full on middle stump, some pace on this one, Dhawan digs it out towards the man at mid-wicket.
  • 22.6Dhawan rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. One run added to the total. 110/1

  • 21.1Drifting in from around the wicket, fuller in length, worked off the inner half towards mid-wicket.

  • 20.2Outside off again, Dhawan looks to cut but this time gets a bottom edge towards third man for one.
  • 20.1Length outside off, Dhawan cuts but to the man at point.
  • 19.6Darted full and wide outside off, Virat gets low, opens the face and squeezes it out to short third man. Either side of him and that would have been a boundary. Just 59 needed to win for India. 97/1
  • 19.5Flat, short and in line of the stumps, punched through wide mid on by going deep inside the crease. Another run to the total.

  • 17.1Full and darted outside off, driven square to the man at point.

  • Change of ends for Doug Bracewell.
  • 15.6Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single. 85/1
  • 15.5FOUR! In the air but right in the gap. Lucky or precision placement? Could be anything with the Indian skipper. He comes ahead and drives it aerially between Southee and Guptill at covers, who dive but can't stop it. A boundary results.
  • 15.4Uses the depth of the crease, goes back inside and dabs it behind square leg.
  • 15.3Leans ahead into the full ball and drives it to long off for a single.
  • 15.3Wide! Two in a row. Tossed up and it spins down, Dhawan tries to sweep it fine once more but is unable to get any bat on it.
  • 15.3Wide! Down the leg side, the batsmen tries to tickle it fine but misses.
  • 15.2Takes the pace off it now. Shorter in line of the stumps, it's punched off the back foot to long on for a single.
  • 15.1A bit quicker through the air, landed a little shorter outside off, Virat attempts to cut it away but fails to make any sort of connection.
  • Mitchell Santner on to bowl now.
  • 14.6Full delivery angling in on middle and leg, Dhawan looks to flick but fails to middle it properly. Misses out, that should have been put away. 76/1
  • 14.5Hits the deck hard and pitches it short, Dhawan tries pull it on the leg side but mistimes it back in the bowler's direction.
  • 14.4Full toss just outside off, Dhawan hits it to mid off and takes off. Taylor collects the ball and fires a poor throw at the keeper's end. He isn't able to collect cleanly and this allows the batsmen to steal another run.
  • 14.3Outside off on a good length, shaping away, run down to third man for just the one.
  • 14.2FOUR! This is subtly done. Just exquisite. Angling in from outside off, a length ball over the wicket at 150 clicks, Kohli just opens the face and dabs it behind point. Coolly done too.
  • 14.1FOUR! Ferguson goes short and is punished. On off, Kohli stays on the back foot and muscles the pull over mid-wicket for a boundary. Picked up the length early there, so was able to position himself quickly for the shot.
  • 13.6Back of a length outside off, at 134 kph, it's slapped to cover off the back foot. 65/1
  • 13.5The Indian captain moves inside the line, and with a little swivel, pulls it along the turf through backward square leg. The batsmen cross over.
  • 13.4Quite full, angling in at first but then shaping away late, Kohli looks to flick but gets a safe leading edge towards mid off.
  • 13.3Too straight in line. Dhawan picks it off his pads and wrists it down towards fine leg. One run added to the total.
  • 13.2Good running. VK taps it down in front of point from the back foot and calls for the run. Both batsmen complete it with ease.
  • 13.1Length delivery in the channel outside off, Kohli stands his ground and blocks it with a straight blade.
  • 12.6Shortish ball, well outside off, Dhawan slaps the cut but can't get it past the man at point. 62/1
  • 12.6Wide! Second of the over. Lockie bangs it in short but it's too short, goes way over the batsman's head.
  • 12.5Full ball on the sixth stump line, driven square straight to point.
  • 12.5Wide! Angling down the leg side, on a good length, Shikhar misses the flick and a wide is signalled.
  • 12.4The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total.
  • 12.3FOUR LEG BYES! Ferguson bowls a back of a length ball on the leg stump line, Kohli looks to flick it away but it goes off the thigh pad and goes away to the fine leg fence.
  • 12.2Short of a good length into the body, worked down to square leg for a run.
  • 12.1FOUR! That's a much better shot. Lockie overpitches this outside off, hands Dhawan a gift which the left-hander accepts. He crashes this through the covers and finds the fence.
  • 11.6Fullish in length, outside the line of off stump, Kohli pats it away to the covers. 50/1
  • 11.5Dropped! Difficult chance though. Back of a length delivery on the stumps, Dhawan rocks back and pulls. It goes off the top edge and balloons towards the leg side. Latham rushes to get under the ball, but the wind is taking it away from him. He still dives and gets his gloves to it, but he's always reaching and it falls down off his fingertips. Single taken.
  • Well, a bit of DLS coming into play. The TARGET HAS NOW BEEN REDUCED TO 156 IN 49 OVERS as the players spent more than 30 minutes in the 'sun' delay.
  • 11.4Wristed away comfortably by Kohli. Just moves inside the line and works it behind square leg for one.
  • 11.3Fraction straight in line, tucked with a close face in front of square on the leg side. A run is collected.
  • 11.2Just ahead of a length, on off stump, met with the full face of the bat in defense.
  • 11.1Good shot but can't beat Williamson at mid off. Kohli walks down the track to this full ball and drives it past the bowler. Williamson from mid off moves to his right and stops it well. Only a single to the batsmen.
  • 10.6A rather loose shot from Dhawan. It's full and wide outside off, he looks to trash this through the covers but gets beaten due to the late away movement. 46/1
  • 10.5Fullish in length and outside off, driven to the covers from the toe end.
  • 10.4Short of a good length on middle and leg, wristed down in front of square leg for a single.
  • 10.3Cramps the batsman for room with a length ball on off, VK stays right behind the line and keeps it out.
  • 10.2Continues from around the wicket, it's a fuller length delivery outside off, Kohli drives it off the outer half to cover-point.
  • 10.1Full delivery angling in on middle and leg, from around the wicket, Dhawan flicks it through mid-wicket and gets to the other end.
  • The sun has set, the conditions are better and we are ready to begin again. Dhawan to take strike, with Kohli at the other end. Ferguson to continue with his remaining over.
  • Here's an interesting fact about this ground - Usually, grounds have the playing surface facing North-South, but McLean Park has it facing East-West. Hence, this issue.
  • Both the umpires, Shaun Haig and Shaun George, were caught to get updates on the situations. They say the sun was not only hampering the batsman, but also the fielders as it was directly coming into their eyes. They also go on to mention that they have an extra 30 minutes, and play should resume in that time, so we should have a full 50-over game.
  • So, this is... strange. We have a halt in play due to the sun bearing down directly on the batsman's eyes. The umpires talk amongst themselves and decide to stop play for some time. The players are off the field.
  • 10.1Wide! Angling down the leg side, wide signalled by the umpire.
  • Powerplay 2 signalled. A maximum of 4 fielders will be allowed outside the ring till the end of the 40th over. Also, Lockie Ferguson to continue from the other end.
  • 9.6Outside off on a good length, left alone. 43/1
  • 9.5Nicely plays this on the up. Kohli walks into this one and punches it through the covers to come back for the second.
  • 9.4Short ball on leg stump, Virat ducks and evades.
  • 9.3Length on off, Kohli plays it with a straight bat.
  • Skipper Virat Kohli walks in at no.3.
  • 9.2OUT! There it is, the first breakthrough and Bracewell strikes! On a length and outside off, invites Sharma to play on the up. He plays a rather loose shot and gets an outside edge to Guptill at first slip who takes it at a good height. First wicket for the Kiwis and they will hope they get another one quickly.
  • 9.1On a length around off, Rohit punches it off the back foot to mid off.
  • Welcome back! Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to continue, while Doug Bracewell will bowl the first over after the break.
  • Earlier on, Shami started the destruction of the Kiwi batsmen while Kuldeep and Chahal continued to torment the line-up. Williamson's gritty fifty ensured that the hosts got past the 150-run mark. Still not over for the Black Caps. If they manage to get some quick wickets post the interval, things could happen, you never know. Join us in a while for the remainder of the chase.
  • So the players finally take the Dinner break as India are surely on top of this game. New Zealand would have hoped for a couple of wickets before the break but Sharma and Dhawan have seen out the opening 9 overs. Boult and Southee did bowl well at the start but India were happy to just see them out. As time went by, Dhawan looked at ease.
  • 8.6FOUR! Brilliant placement. Shorter in length around off, Dhawan just opens the face of the bat and guides it towards the vacant backward point region for a boundary. Solid start here for India. The DINNER BREAK will be taken now. 41/0
  • 8.5Full on middle and off, the south paw defends it off his front foot.
  • 8.4This one is bowled at 129kph. It is on a length outside off, Dhawan tries to cut but misses it.
  • 8.3Good length delivery around off, Shikhar guides it to the fielder at short third man.
  • 8.2Back off a length, Sharma pushes it off the back foot towards cover and takes a single.
  • 8.1Starts with a 149kph speed, full on middle. Rohit defends it off the front foot.
  • Lockie Ferguson to have a burst just before the break.
  • 7.6On the pads, Dhawan won't miss out on that. Flicks it through mid-wicket for a couple of runs to cow corner. 36/0
  • 7.5Gets behind this ball and is happy to block it out.
  • 7.4FOUR! Lovely! Outside off, there to be hit. Dhawan in total balance pierces the gap through cover-point and gets his second boundary of the over. Looking good now.
  • 7.3Back of a length ball on off, Dhawan defends this fro within his crease.
  • 7.2Outside off, played to the point region.
  • 7.1FOUR! Exquisite! Overpitched on off, Dhawan just punches this along the turf and down the ground through mid off. The mid off fielder hares behind it but gives up the chase. All timing on that.
  • 6.6Short again, Rohit pulls it through mid-wicket and will get a couple of runs for it. 26/0
  • 6.5Gets behind this one outside off and blocks this with ease.
  • 6.4Closer to the stumps, Rohit looks to block this but gets an inside edge which goes over the stumps.
  • 6.3On the off stump, Dhawan pushes it towards the off side and gives his partner the strike.
  • 6.2FOUR! That will do! Full and on the pads, Dhawan flicks it away with disdain away from his sight and into the square leg boundary.
  • 6.1SAFE! Short ball rushes into Rohit who goes for the ball. The ball lands safety behind mid-wicket and they cross.
  • 5.6On a length outside off, Sharma tries to cut but gets an inside edge. The ball goes to the on side. He will keep the strike at the start of the next over. 18/0
  • 5.5FOUR! Sharma takes the charge. Comes down the track and hits it over long on for a boundary. He didn't time it well but it had enough to clear the man at mid on.
  • 5.4Full length delivery off, Sharma drives it straight to the fielder at point.
  • 5.3Back of a length around off, the ball jags back in after pitching and strikes Sharma tries to block it but gets hit high on the thigh pad.
  • 5.2On a length outside off, Dhawan cuts it towards third man for a run. With that single, Shikhar Dhawan completes 5000 ODI runs. Becomes the joint 4th fastest and 13th Indian batsman to do so.
  • 5.1Full on off, Dhawan defends it off the front foot.
  • 4.6Good length delivery on off, Sharma defends it from within the crease to finish off the over. 12/0
  • 4.5back of a length delivery, Sharma blocks it.
  • 4.4Brilliantly disguised slower one. Boult changes the pace of the ball and bowls it slow, low full toss on the leg. Dhawan misses his flick there is a stifled appeal from the players which is turned down by the umpire. It looked going down leg and the Hawk Eye confirms it. The ball goes to the on side and the batsmen pick up a single.
  • 4.3On a length on off, Dhawan tries to block it but gets a bottom edge and the ball just about misses the stumps.
