It was a professional performance from India. Victory in the first ODI in New Zealand is a special occasion for the visitors. Great to see Shami getting the Player of the Match award for his brilliant spell. A lot of positives for India - Dhawan scoring runs, Rayudu spending some time in the middle, Kuldeep and Chahal shining together.

Kiwis have a lot to work on. Think Williamson need to rework the playing XI in the next match after reading the pitch. They missed Ish Sodhi for sure here.   

The second ODI is on 26 January and the match will resume at 7.30 am. Hope to see you again. Till then, take care and good bye. 

14:29 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: It is one of the most balanced performance by us. 150-odd on that wicket was quite an easy target to chase. The fast bowling unit believe they can knock any side together. This is the fittest I have seen him (Shami). Spinners cramped the batsmen really well. We spoke about in the break that why it is important for Dhawan to finish the match in our favour and bat till the end. 

14:22 (IST)

Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain: Certainly wasn't our best effort. India, we expected them to be good and they really were on top of the game. Wasn't a traditional wicket. Obviously 150 on the board on a surface where 250 was par was hard, I think the lengths they bowled were immaculate. We do think, it was lack of adjustment. Sometimes you come here and think it's 350-plus. The wicket required much more graft. All the Indian bowlers contributed but we do need to be better. I do think our energy in the field and with the ball was good though and we need to move on from this game quickly

14:22 (IST)

Mohammed Shami is Player of the Match

Shami: 
It is teamwork. We played well in 2018 and our support for each other is there to be seen. We decide everything together as a bowling unit and efforts are there to be seen. Injury changed things for me and for 18 months I was in rehab and when I came back, everyone backed me. People pushed me to work hard on my fitness. Pitches are quite similar to Australia. Weather conditions are different. Australia was much hotter and here weather is pleasant. It was important to adapt.

14:13 (IST)

And that’s it. A sharp again Dhawan anchors India to victory. No hassles as such for the batsmen after a power house bowling performance. New Zealand were never in the game after scoring 157 and honestly, they have been blown away. 

India take a 1-0 series’ lead and now must build on it at a new venue, Bay Oval at Mt. Maunganui. Back to back ODIs there.

After 34.5 overs,India 156/2 ( Shikhar Dhawan 75 , Ambati Rayudu 13)

India win the first ODI by 8 wickets (DLS method) and this win will give them huge confidence. In the end, it was the nervous-looking Rayudu who hit the winning run for India. But it was Dhawan and Virat, who paved the way. Dhawan, with 75 off 103, looked a different batsman than what he was a few days back in Australia. India go 1-0 up in 5-match series.  

 

14:11 (IST)

This is India's largest victory in-terms of wickets remaining against New Zealand in New Zealand in ODIs. The previous highest was of seven wickets came at Auckland in 1994.

14:08 (IST)

That's it. Single off the penultimate ball of the over and INDIA WIN by 8 wickets.

14:07 (IST)

FOUR! Finally, Rayudu hits the muc-nneeded boundary, hits it through covers and scores are tied. 

14:06 (IST)

After 34 overs,India 150/2 ( Shikhar Dhawan 74 , Ambati Rayudu 8)

Rayudu is struggling here and again very strange to see this. He is trying to play too many big shots here, getting beaten. On other occasions, sticking to defending the balls. Should look to middle the ball and rotate strike. Indian team is in a position right now where him getting out of form will solve a lot of puzzles.

However, the tourists have won only 10 out of 35 ODIs against the Kiwis in their home turf, which also includes a 0-4 thrashing in 2014.

The Indian team boasts of a strong batting lineup with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and an in-form Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Openers Rohit and Dhawan are once again expected to give a fine start looking at their recent form, nothing looks difficult for the duo.

Also, Kohli, as usual, is in his peak and would once again be the main strength of the Indian batting line-up. The Indian run-machine had scored a century in his previous outing at this venue during their last tour here in 2014.

What could be a major relief for the team management and Kohli will be the current form of Dhoni, who ended the just concluded ODIs series against the Aussies as leading run scorer with a string of half-centuries.

The stumper is once again expected to replicate his form against the Kiwis.

In the bowling department, medium pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will once again lead the attack along with Mohammad Shami. The two were the most consistent performers during the ODI series down under.

Meanwhile, looking at his recent outing, Yuzvendra Chahal, who emereged with carrer best figures of 6/42 against Australia in the final ODI, is likely to be picked in the playing eleven on Wednesday ahead of chinaman Kuldeep Yadav.

Ravindra Jadeja will once again play the crucial role of an all-rounder if he gets a chance in place of newcomer Vijay Shankar.

Coming to New Zealand, Ross Taylor, who recently played a key role in the Kiwis whitewash of Sri Lanka, will be the man to look out for. Taylor amassed 281 runs against the Lankans, which included couple of fifties and a century in three games.

Henry Nicholls, who smashed an unbeaten 124 in the final affair against the islanders, will try to replicate his show against the No. 2 ranked India.

The Kiwi batting line-up also has some other big guns like Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and skipper Kane Williamson. Kane has been the most consistent performer for the home side while Munro carries the ability to swiftly change gears depending upon the situation.

In terms of bowling, the Kiwis posses one of the most attacking pace attack with Trent Boult and Tim Southee. The duo are well known for their ability to get early breakthroughs and in death overs. Also, the duo are likely to get an able support from pacer Lockie Ferguson, who too, was impressive in their last series.

In spin, leg spinner Ish Sodhi, who was New Zealand's key performer against Lanka after picking eight wickets from three ODIs, could be the another danger weapon against the tourist.

Overall, another tight contest will be on cards when the World number two and three-ranked sides clash.

Teams:

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (Captain), MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ambati Rayudu, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, K. Khaleel Ahmed

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Henry Nicholls, Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry

Narine back on and he removes Pooran, who was looking to hit every ball out of the park. He has perished in the process. Prabhsimran Singh, right handed bat, comes to the crease and he plays two dots before taking single off the last ball. Will keep the strike. Just 2 off the over. 20 needed off 12 balls. KKR can still do this but you got to say, Punjab in driver's seat.
