India vs New Zealand ODIs: The beginning of the Indian team under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan on the tour of New Zealand was very bad. In the very first match of the three-match ODI series, the Indian team had to face a crushing defeat by 7 wickets. The Kiwi team thrashed the Indian bowlers fiercely and won the match with 17 balls remaining.
The major reason for this crushing defeat of Team India has been its poor bowling. In this, fast bowler Shardul Thakur has been washed the most. New Zealand’s star batsman Tom Latham scored 25 runs in a single over of Shardul. Fans have given the title of Lord Shardul to the Indian bowler, but he could not do any such magic in this match.
Latham washed fiercely in Shardul’s over
After this over of Shardul, the pressure that the Indian team had put on New Zealand was completely removed. Actually, Shardul looted these runs in the 40th over of the Kiwi team’s innings. In this over, Tom Latham hit a six and then 4 fours off Shardul’s balls. Latham also completed his century in this over.
Latham took the pressure off the team in a single over
Earlier, the New Zealand team had scored 216 runs for 3 wickets in 39 overs. From here he needed 89 runs in 11 overs to win. In such a situation, there was some pressure on the team. But Shardul’s over had removed this pressure as well.
That’s that from the 1st ODI.
New Zealand win by 7 wickets, lead the series 1-0.
