Highlights, Indian Board President's XI v New Zealand, warm-up match: Hosts win by 30 runs

18:11 (IST)

That brings us to the end of our coverage. Not an ideal start for New Zealand, they have to get back to the drawing board and resolve as many issues as possible before the second practice game, which is on 19th October. The first ODI is on 22nd October and will be played at the Wankhede Stadium. Do join us for the first match. For now, its good bye. Take care!

The players acknowledge each other after Shreyas Iyer and Co's win.

17:49 (IST)

That's it! Unadkat snares his third and sends Grandhomme back to the hut. Board President XI win by 30 runs after bowling New Zealand out for 265. 

17:42 (IST)

After 46 overs, New Zealanders 253/9 (Colin de Grandhomme 29, Glenn Phillips 1)

New Zealand's last hope was pinned on the pair of Santner and Grandhomme. But as soon as Shreyas Iyer brought Jaydev Unadkat into the attack, the left arm pacer removed Santner and Trent Boult. The onus now is on Grandhomme. Can he take New Zealad home? Difficult to say, the required run rate is 10.75. 

17:28 (IST)

After 43 overs, New Zealanders 224/7 (Mitchell Santner 17, Colin de Grandhomme 17)

At one stage, the Kiwis were in the stage, but they have lost their way in the last four overs. Gurkeerat Singh had Tom Latham caught while, Prithvi Shaw, the 17-year old, bowled Adam Milne and Tim Southee. New Zealand need 72 off 42 balls. 

17:07 (IST)

Looking tough for the visitors.

17:05 (IST)

After 39 overs, New Zealanders 201/4 (Tom Latham 59,  Mitchell Santner 9)

Avesh Khan removes the dangerous Ross Taylor for 34. But Tom Latham is playing good. He went past the 50-run mark. The asking rate is now close to nine.

16:28 (IST)

Drinks now.

16:27 (IST)

After 32 overs, New Zealanders 166/3 (Tom Latham 41,  Ross Taylor 28)

50 runs partnership up between Latham and Taylor. The required run-rate is slightly above seven so the Kiwis should look to up the ante.  

16:04 (IST)

After 26 overs, New Zealanders 133/3 (Tom Latham 21,  Ross Taylor 15)

Tom Latham is striking the ball good. He's scoring more than run a ball while Ross Taylor is steady. Kane Williamson was looking dangerous but Karn Sharma removed him for 47.

That's it! Unadkat snares his third and sends Grandhomme back to the hut. Board President XI win by 30 runs after bowling New Zealand out for 265.

Preview: Remained on the sidelines during the recently concluded five-match ODI series against Australia. KL Rahul was dropped for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand too.

Gearing up for some quality spin test, New Zealand will look to get into the groove when they lock horns with the Board President's XI in a warm-up game as a pre-cursor to their limited overs series against India.

The Kiwis led by Kane Williamson had a few practice sessions at the Cricket Club of India, the venue of the warm- up game ahead of their lung opener.

Senior players including Williamson, Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill would like to get some runs under their belt before going into the series.

Board President's XI, on the other hand, is a relatively young side captained by Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer, who has been in good form for the India A team.

Youngsters including Iyer, Karun Nair, keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, teen sensation Prithvi Shaw will be keen to make a mark and impress the national selectors.

The bowlers will also go in with a similar approach and look to unsettle the Kiwis batters.

New Zealand coach Mike Henson will particularly look at his opening pair of Tom Latham and Guptill to give a descent start on a wicket expected to help the batsmen.

With the senior pacers not named in Board President's XI squad, the Kiwi batsmen will face Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, who relatively have a little experience at the international level.

The visiting batsmen will need to overcome the spin threat which will be posed by in-form Shahbaz Nadeem and rookie leggie Rahul Chhahar.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson had yesterday said that the practice games were important ahead of the ODI series.

"These two (practice) games coming up are important for us in our preparations. We hopefully hit the ground running in the first one-dayer," Williamson had said.

With wickets in India generally aiding the spinners, Mitchell Santner will be eager to get as many wickets in the game and be ready for the main battle.

The Black Caps will like to get some inputs from players like Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, George Worker - all of whom have been in India for some time now, playing against the A side.

In the match, Board President's XI players will surely get an experience of playing an international team but for the Kiwis it will be all about adjusting to the conditions.

Meanwhile, it is raining in the maximum city for the past 10 days especially in the evenings. This could affect even the start of play if there is a wet outfield.

Additionally, the track is expected to have more juice due to the downpour.

Teams (from):

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (Captain), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, George Worker.

Board President's XI: Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Prithvi Shaw, Shivam Chaudhary, Karun Nair, Gurkeerat Mann, Milind Kumar, Rishabh Pant, Shahbaz Nadeem, Deepak Chahar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Avesh Khan.
