Virat Kohli’s Team India continued their domination at home, as they defeated Kane Williamson’s New Zealand by six runs to clinch the three-match ODI series 2-1.
After having elected to bowl, nothing went according to Kiwi’s plan, as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma put up a 230-run partnership after losing Shikhar Dhawan early.
However, Rohit Sharma’s innings came to an end as he was dismissed for 147. This was followed by captain Kohli’s dismissal, who departed for 113 runs. Following Kohli’s wicket, Dhoni and Jadhav put up a 29-run partnership, but the latter went back just before the end of innings.
In reply, the Kiwis got off to a strong start, scoring 100 runs in the first 15 overs. Despite good knocks from Colin Munro (75), Kane Williamson (64) and Tom Latham (65), the Kiwis were unable to capitalise on the momentum, as they lost wickets in a flurry in the last 10 overs.
Jasprit Bumrah was superb in his final spell as he claimed three wickets, and also was well supported by Yuzvendra Chahal who claimed two wickets for India, whereas Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the soul wicket at the end.
