Highlights Champions Trophy 2017, India vs New Zealand, cricket scores and updates: Kohli's men win via D/L method
Catch all the live updates of the warm-up match between India and New Zealand at the Oval.
The Black Caps Twitter account have just confirmed that the match has been called off and India has won the warm-up fixture against New Zealand by 45 runs on D/L method.
The rain has got heavier and the umpires have decided to stop the play. The players are coming off the field. India are ahead on the D/L method.
FIFTY! A fine innings from the Indian captain Virat Kohli. He has played some delightful shots but all around has built his knock on the ones and twos. India wanted their captain to get back amongst the runs and he has done exactly that.
OUT! Neesham steams in and bowls is short, it is outside off and Dhawan drags his pull straight to Corey Anderson at mid-wicket. New Zealand finally break this frustrating partnership.
OUT! New Zealand have been bundled out for 189! A collective bowling effort from all the bowlers, really. Coming back to the wicket, it was a length delivery, outside off, Boult gave himself room and looked to go over covers but Shami, at that position, reverse cupped the catch.
OUT! Kohli goes to Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a wicket and the UP pacer has provided that for his captain. A length ball which Southee tries to drive but he was playing away from the body. He inside edges it onto his stumps.
OUT! Milne was constantly being troubled by the short balls and that delivery itself ends his stay at the crease. Umesh hits the deck hard and keeps it around leg, Milne looks to pull it away but only manages to glove it to Dhoni. New Zealand lose their eighth wicket.
OUT! You simply don't attempt a cut against Jadeja, more often than not you will end on the losing side. Jadeja darts one around off, Ronchi looks to cut, but the ball is too close to his body, he fails to connect and the ball goes onto crash into the stumps.
OUT! Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the last laugh against the dangerous looking Corey Anderson. Bhuvi bowls a back of a length delivery, Anderson backs away and tries to pull it away only to connect thin air. He misses but the white object doesn't, off comes the leg stump. Time for drinks with that wicket.
FIFTY! Ronchi looks to flick Bhuvi away but it takes the leading edge and runs away to the third man fence for a single. The Kiwi won't mind that. A patchy innings but he will take that.
LIVE NEWS and UPDATES
Preview: Defending champions India will take on a resurgent New Zealand in their first warm-up match at the Oval on Sunday. India is also scheduled to play a warm-up match against Bangladesh on 30 May at the same venue. However, even before the Men in Blue could begin their campaign to defend the Champions Trophy, ace batsman Yuvraj Singh is all set to miss the first warm-up match due to viral fever. Yuvraj, laid low due to fever, had also missed the first two warm-up sessions.
However, the BCCI confirmed that the senior pro is recuperating well as per the information of the medical team.
"The BCCI Medical Team confirms that Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh who is presently down with viral fever is making steady progress. There are no major health concerns and he is recuperating well, to the satisfaction of the medical team," the release stated.
"He is advised rest and will miss India's first warm-up match against New Zealand at The Oval on 28 May, 2017. The medical team will continue to monitor Yuvraj Singh's progress and hope for a speedy recovery," it further stated.
Meanwhile, Captain Virat Kohli had said that India will go out "to enjoy" their cricket as they aim to defend their Champions Trophy crown against the backdrop of a row over money with the international board.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) backed out of a threat to boycott the 50-over tournament in a revenue-sharing dispute with the International Cricket Council (ICC).
But they had only named a squad two weeks after the original deadline for the tournament which starts on 1 June.
Kohli said that the team were determined to keep their hunger for success.
"The hunger to win and ruthlessness is what we speak about all the time," Kohli told reporters before India left for England.
"The first challenge is to not think about that you are defending the title. When we went out there the last time we just wanted to enjoy," said Kohli.
"We were a young unit. We ended up winning the tournament and creating a team which has done so well so far."
The BCCI are angry at the new ICC revenue model agreed last month that reduced the powers of cricket's "Big Three" -- Australia, England and India.
The BCCI believes it will lose $277 million in revenue over the next eight years.
Former India captain Kapil Dev had said he hoped the row would not affect performances on the field.
"I hope all this talk doesn't impact the players. But today, media putting so much focus on everything it must be having some effect on them when they read and see the news," Kapil, the 1983 World Cup winning captain, said.
"As a sportsman I just want to be bothered about cricket on the field.
"Whatever happens otherwise, let the administrators take care of that," the legendary all-rounder said.
The BCCI are seeking a better deal before the ICC ratifies the new structure at its annual conference next month.
"See, we are just trying to get the board its rightful share," a senior board official had told AFP on condition of anonymity. "But trust me the revenue matter had nothing to do with the Champions Trophy.
"We work for the best interest of the players and our wishes are with them to defend the title and play the brand of cricket that they have been playing."
India, who beat England in the 2013 Champions Trophy final, are on a roll, winning 10 of the 13 Tests played against New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia in a marathon home season.
The side also won their three-match one-day series against England 2-1 and most of their players have just been involved in the high-octane Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament.
India are in Group B along with South Africa and Sri Lanka and start their campaign with a mouth-watering clash against fierce rivals Pakistan at Edgbaston, Birmingham, on 4 June.
