Virat Kohli: Bit of luck went my way as well. Felt sorry for Ross. Ive done that before, with Brendon getting to 300 as well. We gave away 30-40 runs too many, but that gave us an opportunity. The partnership with Dhoni sealed the game for us, and Pandey helped us finish things off. The way he (Dhoni) hit those two-three boundaries gave me the confidence. We fed off each other. In the past, I got the feedback that I need to time my shots, and I've maintained that. Me and MS had a chat. He took on the spinners. Teams try and get me out when I walk out at 3. that's when I take my to settle and analyse the situation.

MS Dhoni: I think would've done better in the last game, but what matters is how you come back. I felt it was a very good game for us, especially the way the bowlers started off. Overall they have done really well. The surprise package has been Kedar. We can still improve, cause When you win, you brush a lot of things under the carpet. Ive no clue how he (Jadhav) gets the wickets, but its important that he is getting those wickets. There's no pressure on Hardik to finish his 10 overs. Ive batted lower down for a long time. That's where I lost my ability to rotate strike. Its important that I go out there and play the big shots. Well I think right from the start he's eomeone who wanted to improve. He's somebody who'se learnt a lot over a period of time. As far as getting better is concerned, its difficult to say what the top limit is. He has made not only his fans proud, but also his parents.

Kane Williamson: Obviously frustrating to lose those wickets in the middle. The lower-order performed beautifully for us today. If you don't dismiss this man over here (Kohli), it doesnt matter how many runs you score. You have to dismiss them, as we saw today, they put on 150 and took the game away. Its part of the game. You wanna catch them all (on Taylor's dropped catch), but it doesn't always happen.

MS Dhoni is the Jana Bankable Player of the match.

After 48.2 overs, India 289/3 (Virat Kohli 154, Manish Pandey 28)


India win by seven wickets! Pandey swings his bat towards midwicket to hit the winning boundary! And its yet another Kohli masterclass that sets up a memorable chase for India! The hosts win with 10 balls to spare!

Oct 23, 2016 - 21:18 (IST)

After 48 overs, India 285/3 (Virat Kohli 154, Manish Pandey 24); need 1 to win from 12 balls


Kohli starts accelerating things up now, driving the first ball through cover for a four, before getting another boundary off a loft two deliveries later! He unleashes the shot of his innings in the fourth ball, getting a straight six off a mere chip! Runs a couple in the next delivery to reach 150, his second such milestone in ODIs. Ends the over with a drive towards point to level the scores! 22 runs leaked by Boult in his final overs, who finishes with figures of 0 for 73

Preview: Stung by an improved New Zealand on Thursday, a wary India would like to quickly get their house in order when they square off with Kane Williamson's boys in the third ODI in Mohali on Sunday.

While the six-run defeat in Delhi has given India plenty to ponder about, it has also renewed interest in the contest which had been dominated by the home team prior to Thursday, stretching from the one-sided Test series to the first ODI in Dharamsala.

From a New Zealand point of view, a victory was all that they needed after a string of defeats. As a result of their first win on Indian soil in 13 years, one can expect a certain spring in the stride of the visitors when they take the field at the PCA Stadium.

India, on the other hand, can only blame themselves for suffering a rude shock after failing to chase down a 243-run target, a total they were expected to overhaul with little difficulty.

As captain MS Dhoni put it, the hosts would have won the match had some of their batsmen had made an extra 10-15 runs instead of getting out at crucial junctures.

Ajinkya Rahane, who has got the opportunity to cement his place in the ODI side in the absence of injured Shikhar Dhawan, squandered starts in both the matches while opening alongside Rohit Sharma, who would also be keen to be back among the runs after a couple of failures.

Rohit had hurt his biceps during the last match but there hasn't yet been any news about the extent or seriousness of the injury.

Number four Manish Pandey also need to make an impact after he too could not capitalise on promising starts. In fact, most batsmen got their eye in at Kotla before throwing their wicket away, hurting India's chances badly.

One of them was number six Kedar Jadhav, who impressed with his 41-run cameo and shared a 66-run fifth wicket stand with Dhoni. Had he been alongside Dhoni for another three-four overs, the outcome of the match could have been different.

Jadhav may get another chance tomorrow as there is still no update on Suresh Raina's health.

With most batsmen not showing the required maturity to bail the team out of a tricky situation, it would be a tad unfair to only point fingers at Dhoni, who was made to work hard for his 39 before falling to a brilliant return catch by Tim Southee.
