  • New Zealand announce their arrival in grand fashion, though few members of the the squad have been here since over a month, as they reap rewards of their hard work including playing the two warm-up games in Mumbai itself before the 1st ODI. Goes on to show their hunger to do well in these conditions.

    Despite the challenging conditions at Wankhede, that tested every ounce of energy of the tourists, they managed to overcome the conditions and scale down 280 winning first of the three ODIs setting up the series nicely.

    Enough cannot be said about Tom Latham's performance tonight. The cricketing world will remember it for a long time. And Ross Taylor too displayed his class and experience with a cracking 95. Not to forget Trent Boult's 4-for that helped the Kiwis restrict India to 280.

    Wonderful start to the series, the next game in Pune on 25 October might throw in another surpise but fret not, as we at Firstpost will be here to bring you all the coverage and action. Do join us for the second match, until then it is goodbye from us.

  • Watch our correspondents Jigar Mehta and Devdutt Kshirsagar analyse New Zealand's six-wicket win over India outside the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

  • Latham: Pretty humid out there today. Pretty tough on the body, conditions different from back home. Whatever suits the team, and at the moment that No. 5 position is up for grabs. Yeah it was nice to contribute today. (on reverse sweep) Something I have been working on, good that it came out well today. The biggest thing is communciation, hats off to him (Ross Taylor) he had a calming influence as a senior player.

  • Tom Latham is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten century.

  • New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson: The way we set the tone with the new ball was outstanding. Great hundred from Virat, becoming fairly normal (laughs). One of the best chases I have seen. Yeah, there were some close chances with the short balls, 200-run partnership was a special, special effort. You want to take the game deep and we wanted to do the same. Great team performance. Very challenging, we have been here close to two weeks. Getting used to it. Lads had a great attitude, stuck to the task well.

  • Virat Kohli (Indian captain): We thought 275-plus was good on that wicket, but Ross and Tom were outstanding. They deserved to win, and the partnership was outstanding. Putting the dew to perspective, we definitely were 30-40 short. After 20 overs in the second half, the wicket settled down nicely and the dew started appearing. They just closed all doors for us. They tackled our spinners really well. They picked their areas and knew if we didn't pick wickets, it would be a one way traffic. Didn't feel we had the need to (on not using Kedar as a bowler today). If the game had drifted away from us earlier, we could have thought of it. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    281 is now also the highest target successfully chased by New Zealand against India in ODIs. The previous highest was 279 at Hamilton in 2014.

  • After 49 overs,New Zealand 284/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 103 , Henry Nicholls 4)

    Bhuvneshwar bowls what turns out to be the last over of the match. Taylor misses out on a ton as he gets caught by Chahal at extra-cover, with Bhuvneshwar getting his first wicket as a result. Henry Nicholls walks out to bat and hits the winning boundary straightaway, as the Kiwis post the highest successful chase at the Wankhede to grab the series lead! 

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    India's white ball woes continue at Wankhede. The crowd witnessed two brilliant tons but Latham's century trumped Kohli's, looking at the ease with which NZ chased it down, it feels like India were 20-30 runs short. NZ have announced their arrival in style and India have been caught on the back foot after a long time. It will be interesting how they respond going forward. The crowd was disappointed but they appreciated good cricket. The pitch curator too needs to be applauded for producing a decent pitch. NZ thoroughly outclassed India and they deserved every inch of this win. People sign off singing ""Hum honge kamyaab ek din," in positive spirits.

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    What a win for NZ! Brilliant hundred by Latham in only 95 balls. He virtually swept the spinners off their feet while Taylor batted with tremendous grit and determination. He gave his partner the comfort that he was not going to throw away his wicket and just kept his end going. The terrific partnership won the day for the Kiwis. Taylor might have missed his ton but was as impressive in contributing towards the remarkable victory march. India have plenty to worry about in this series. They've taken a blow alright

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

  • After 48 overs,New Zealand 279/3 ( Ross Taylor 95 , Tom Latham (W) 102)

    Bumrah bowls his ninth over, with the Indians opting for the review after an unsuccessful appeal for lbw off the penultimate ball of the over. Four off the over, with the Black Caps needing two off the last two overs. 

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    Taylor on 95 and Wankhede is chanting we want six we want six

  • After 47 overs,New Zealand 275/3 ( Ross Taylor 95 , Tom Latham (W) 100)

    Seven runs collected by the Black Caps off the 47th over of the innings, with Latham collecting a single off the fourth ball to bring up his fourth one-day hundred — much to the appreciation of the opposition and the local fans aside from the New Zealand dressing room. Six needed off the last three overs now. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    New Zealand batsmen to score a century while chasing in India in ODIs:
     
    Martin Crowe, Jamshedpur, 1995
    TOM LATHAM, Mumbai, 2017*

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    Tom Latham deserved a ton. What a fantastic innings, he nullified the effect of wrist spinners with his sweeps and played good calculative cricket
     The move to shift him to middle order has indeed proved to be a master stroke. He was brilliant in the last tour and he might just better it in this tour. The fans applaud and he deserves every inch of this applause. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    New Zealand wicket-keeper batsmen scoring a century in ODIs in India:
     
    Brendon McCullum, Mumbai, 2011
    TOM LATHAM, Mumbai, 2017 
     

  • CENTURY for Tom Latham his fourth in ODIs and an excellent innings by the southpaw by any standard! Takes 95 deliveries to get to the milestone as he guides the ball towards the leg side for a single! NZ 274/3

  • Appreciation from former Kiwi!

  • FOUR! Now Taylor enters the 90s as he sets sights on the big milestone himself! Gets a thick outside edge that carries wide of Dhoni! NZ 272/3

  • After 46 overs,New Zealand 268/3 ( Ross Taylor 89 , Tom Latham (W) 99)

    Forgettable over by Bumrah, as he gets hit for two boundaries by Taylor, a six off Latham's bat and a wide as he leaks 17 off it. New Zealand need just 13 off the last four overs with seven wickets in hand. 

  • SIX! The Black Caps are cantering their way towards victory right now! Flicked away towards the wide long-on boundary by Latham, who moves to 99! NZ 268/3

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    NZ are running away with this. More and more people are starting to leave. Dejected faces in the crowd. They want to catch the train as soon as possible and avoid rush, it's a forgone conclusion for them. Brilliant stuff from Latham and Taylor.

  • FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Taylor, who pulls the fourth ball towards the long-leg fence, where the fielder fails to cut the ball off despite a dive. NZ 260/3

  • FOUR! Pulled away by Taylor towards the midwicket fence! Less than run-a-ball for the Kiwis now! NZ 256/3

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is now the highest stand for New Zealand for any wicket while chasing in India in ODIs. The previous highest was 171* between Martin Crowe and Stephen Fleming at Jamshedpur in 1995. 
     
     
     

  • Jasprit Bumrah brought back into the attack in the 46th over. 

  • After 45 overs,New Zealand 251/3 ( Ross Taylor 80 , Tom Latham (W) 92)

    Eight runs collected off Kuldeep's last over of the evening, including a boundary off a reverse-sweep by Latham as he enters the 90s. Not only are the Black Caps past the 250-mark with the finish line within sight, but the two batsmen cross a milestone with the current partnership becoming the highest for any wicket at this venue. 30 needed off as many balls now for the visitors. 

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    Latham has played a gem here. "Century waste aahe Kohli chi, " utters a dejected fan.

  • FOUR! Reverse-swept by Latham once again, guiding it towards the third man fence this time! Meanwhile, the partnership is worth 168, the highest for any wicket at this venue. NZ 248/3

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    People are starting to lose hope now. India are not able to get the breakthrough, its kind of a gloomy atmosphere right now. There are worried faces in the stands. 

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    Now one of the fan is complaining that Kohli chose the wrong option, he should have opted to chase after winning the toss. All sorts of anger inside the stands.

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    New Zealand down to the last 50 runs of the chase. What a superb partnership this Latham- Taylor fourth wicket stand has been. They've handled pace and spin remarkably well. There has been a plan and purpose in the manner in which they gone after the target. The sweep shot against the wrist spinners have served the duo very well. The unbroken 150 Plus runs stand has been a match winning one. India need a miracle to pull it off from here

  • After 44 overs,New Zealand 243/3 ( Ross Taylor 78 , Tom Latham (W) 86)

    Good piece of fielding by Karthik at deep midwicket to save three runs for the hosts after a well-timed pull by Latham. The southpaw slog-sweeps off the fourth delivery, clearing the square-leg rope in the process. Chahal finishes his quota wicketless, having conceded 51 runs in the process. 

  • SIX! Superbly-timed slog-sweep by Latham as he manages to guide it just above the fielder at deep square-leg! NZ 241/3

  • After 43 overs,New Zealand 232/3 ( Ross Taylor 75 , Tom Latham (W) 78)

    Eight collected off the 43rd over, including a boundary of a reverse paddle by Latham — improvised by him after getting a steeper delivery than expected. Two collected off the last delivery, with Latham guiding it towards fine-leg. The Black Caps in firm control of the proceedings at the moment, with the partnership in excess of 150 at the moment. 49 needed off 42 for the Black Caps now. 

  • 150-partnership up between Taylor and Latham for the fourth wicket, with the former collecting a single in the 43rd over to bring up the milestone! NZ 230/3

  • FOUR! Latham adjusts to a rising delivery from Kuldeep, going for a reverse paddle that carries wide of the fielder stationed at short third man! NZ 228/3

  • After 42 overs,New Zealand 224/3 ( Ross Taylor 74 , Tom Latham (W) 71)

    Chahal bowls his ninth over. Latham misses neck-and-crop while attempting a sweep off a full delivery outside off. The southpaw cuts the penultimate delivery towards backward point and comes back for a second run, much to the discomfort of a tired-looking Taylor. Six collected off the over, including a single off a reverse-sweep by Taylor off the last delivery. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    New Zealand need 69 runs from the last 10 overs. They should get home easily unless and until they collapse which is highly unlikely as both Taylor and Latham are still batting with a proper planning. We have not seen a loose shot either during the stans so far.
     
     

  • Yuzvendra Chahal brought back into the attack for the 42nd over, replacing Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Last round of tactics for the hosts now. 

  • After 41 overs,New Zealand 218/3 ( Ross Taylor 72 , Tom Latham (W) 67)

    The umpire signals the start of the third powerplay at the start of this over, which translates to the placement of a fifth fielder outside the 30-yard circle. Pandya returns to the attack from the Tata End, replacing Bumrah. Taylor, meanwhile, is starting to show signs of struggle at the centre. Six off the over. 

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost correspondent at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai

    Brilliant calculative cricket from NZ. 69 needed off 60, they are firmly in the driver's seat now, the pitch isn't doing much and if they lose from here, they will have only themselves to blame. India would be looking for a breakthrough desperately and pounce upon the inexperienced middle order.

  • After 40 overs,New Zealand 212/3 ( Ross Taylor 70 , Tom Latham (W) 65)

    Taylor inches forward off the fourth delivery of the 40th over, smacking the ball straight over the umpire's head to collect his fifth boundary! Appeal for lbw off the last delivery of the over, with the umpire not looking interested, possibly due to the pitch of the delivery. Eight off the over. The Black Caps need another 69 to win from 60 deliveries. 

Bhuvneshwar bowls what turns out to be the last over of the match. Taylor misses out on a ton as he gets caught by Chahal at extra-cover, with Bhuvneshwar getting his first wicket as a result. Henry Nicholls walks out to bat and hits the winning boundary straightaway, as the Kiwis post the highest successful chase at the Wankhede to grab the series lead!

Preview: On a roll after consecutive series wins against Sri Lanka and Australia, a confident India will aim to hunt New Zealand when they face-off in the opener of the three-match One-day International (ODI) series at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.

The Virat Kohli-led side will also have one eye on reclaiming the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings after being pushed to the second position by South Africa.

India and South Africa have identical 120 ratings against their name, but the men-in-blue are placed second on the basis of the decimal points.

Going into the first ODI against the Kiwis, India will once again bank on their strong batting form led by the skipper and the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

With the opening conundrum sorted and Kohli settled at No.3, it will be interesting to see who takes the No.4 spot in the line-up.

Recently, India have experimented a number of youngsters including all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav for the slot, which serves as a critical link between the top and lower middle-order.

While Pandya shone with a match-winning unbeaten 78 against Australia at first go, Pandey has got the longest run of the lot despite his unflattering numbers and especially with an in-form Dinesh Karthik recalled for this series, it will be interesting to see who gets to bat at No.4.

The bowling department will looks a settled unit with limited overs specialists — Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah — cementing their places.

Rookie Shardul Thakur finds himself in the team as much for the rotation policy as for his sharp form in the recently concluded 'A' series against New Zealand.

But all eyes will be on India's new found wristspin twins -- Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav -- who made life difficult for the Aussies in the recently concluded series.

They will surely pose a challenge for the Kiwis, given their past record against Indian spinners.

On the other hand, New Zealand will hope the experienced Ross Taylor and skipper Kane Williamson to shoulder the responsibility in the batting department, which also includes the likes of Martin Guptill, Tom Latham and Colin Munro.

Latham and Taylor started the tour with brilliant centuries in the practice tie against the Board President's XI, and looks confident going into the series opener.

Pace bowling wise though, New Zealand seem settled with Trent Boult having already picked a five-fer in the first practice game. Tim Southee and Adam Milne form the rest of the battery while Matt Henry joins them over from the 'A' tour.

Left-armer Mitchell Santner will be the first-choice spinner while De Grandhomme's utility with the ball could be reduced too if Munro chips in with a few useful seam-ups.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, Shardul Thakur.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, George Worker.
