Third One-Day International, India vs. New Zealand, Live Scoring from Indore
Losing New Zealand
New Zealand keeps shrinking. Kohli’s mistimed loft was caught by Finn Allen. After that, Suryakumar nicked it too long on. Playing shots with the old ball has proven challenging.
The Indian economy is starting to slow down. Despite this, they are still in an advantageous position.
Here we have a misunderstanding…
India is in the driver’s seat after losing Ishan Kishan due to a mixup; the score currently stands at 268 for 3 in just under 35 overs.
New Zealand finally gets a break
A wicket has been taken by New Zealand at long last. Rohit tried to slug Bracewell past the line when he hit his tonne, but he was castled. After that, Gill scored another ODI century. In one-day internationals, he is scoring at an incredible rate.
But Blair Tickner’s slower short ball quickly got rid of Gill. Tickner has been the most effective bowler for New Zealand.
In Indore, the rain still comes in fours and sixes. When you need some relief, a dot ball is like finding an oasis. There have been 46 runs scored in the last four overs alone. It’s like we’re in the middle of a video game out there.
Very impressive batting display by Gill and Rohit.
A great beginning for India
- Smaller than average boundaries and a monotonous pitch. There have been around two swings and two balls so far. Batters should find the weather to their liking. Probably not the bowlers. When taking into account the fact that the conditions are ideal for batting, New Zealand has performed adequately. In spite of this, Rohit and Gill have gotten off to a good start. The stand has been highlighted by Rohit’s straight six blasted off of Duffy.
- They (New Zealand) have decided to bowl first. Conditions were favourable for batting, so they may have gone first. India has opted for Umran and Chahal, leaving out Shami and Siraj.
- India’s skipper, Rohit Sharma, says his team would have preferred to bat first in order to maximise their chances of success. The field is excellent, and we have always been able to put up a respectable score here. What really matters is playing some of the new guys who haven’t played yet just to see how they do. Neither Shami nor Siraj will be returning, and in their place will be Umran and Chahal.
- For the New Zealand national team, Tom Latham is captain. We’re going to use a bowl, which has a nice surface and will look even better when illuminated. We have put in solid performances in the past, and we hope to do so again. It will have high scores and its bounds will be rather narrow. Doug Bracewell replaces Henry Shipley as our lone substitution.
