India won the toss and elected to bat under the captaincy of the Rohit Sharma and elected to bat first, their start was not good and first wicket got out for 8 run in terms of Rohit Sharma. Again they were in back foot as India’s looses 4 wickets for the 18 runs, it was looking like again they will be all-out under 100 then Ambati Raydu and Vijay Shanker Cameo with the 98 Partnership help them to recover, then at last Kedhar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya played really good shots that make India to Score 252 Runs. The Leading scorer for India was by Ambati Raydu 90 Runs.
The Chasing 253 runs will never be easy in New Zealand fast pitch, we were all aware about the opening player are not inform which led to early wicket for New Zealand in terms of Henry Nicholas, New Zealand Caption Kane Williamson came and shown some good cricketing skills but the start was slow for them but this also doesn’t help them to win as the New Zealand was all-out for 217 runs and India won the Match with 35 runs.
