Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav script India’s biggest ODI win in New Zealand

first_imgBrief Scores: India (324/4) beat New Zealand (234) by 90 runs to take 2-0 lead in 5-match series. Bracewell (57), Kuldeep (4/45), Bhuvneshwar (2/42) (SCORECARD)India crushed New Zealand by 90 runs in the second ODI at Mount Maunganui on Saturday to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Rohit Sharma top-scored with 87 while Kuldeep Yadav starred with the ball to script India’s fourth win in five one-day internationals this year.Chasing a mammoth 325, New Zealand were never really in the hunt against a top quality Indian bowling attack. Martin Guptill was dropped by MS Dhoni in the third over the chase but he failed to capitalise on the dropped chance and fell for 15.Kane Williamson, Colin Munro and Ross Taylor – three of New Zealand’s biggest hopes in the steep chase – were sent back to the dressing room even before the 18th over had been bowled. Williamson looked far from his best and perished to Mohammed Shami while the dangerous Taylor, who had hit six successive half-centuries before the ODI series against India, fell to the part-time off-spin of Kedar Jadhav.India vs New Zealand, 2nd ODI: HighlightsIf New Zealand expected Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls and Colin de Grandhomme to put up a fight against India, they had every reason to be disappointed.Another brilliant performance by the Men in Blue. #TeamIndia wrap the second ODI, win by 90 runs. 2-0 #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/2fTF9uQ5JMBCCI (@BCCI) January 26, 2019Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami had bowled brilliantly with the new ball to keep New Zealand in check before the wrist spinnrs took over.advertisementYuzvendra Chahal, who had destroyed Australia with a six-wicket haul in the series decider in Melbourne, struck to remove Colin Munro and paralyse New Zealand further. Kuldeep Yadav, who took four wickets in the first ODI, was the star of the bowling attack again.On Saturday, Kuldeep took another four-wicket haul to grind New Zealand to the dust. He was in fact on a hat-trick in his sixth over when he snared Nicholls and Ish Sodhi off successive balls.Having slipped to 166 for 8, it was only a matter of time before New Zealand crashed to a heavy defeat even as Doug Bracewell scored his maiden ODI fifty.Earlier in the day, India had won the toss and decided to bat on a flat pitch. Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan put together their 14th 100-run partership and laid the platform for a huge score. After Dhawan fell for 66, all eyes were on Rohit, who was on the verge of his 23rd ODI hundred.However, Rohit failed to keep a pull short down and holed out to de Grandhomme off Lockie Ferguson for 87.Despite Rohit’s dismissal, the strong Indian batting line-up continued to dominate New Zealand’s hapless bowlers. Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the final two ODIs and the T20I series on the tour, looked good for his 43 while Ambati Rayudu scored 47.MS Dhoni (48 not out off 33 balls) and Kedar Jadhav (22 not out off 10 balls) put the finishing touches as India finished with their highest ODI total in the last 10 years.India and New Zealand will return to Mount Maunganui on Monday for the third ODI and the hosts will quickly need to work out how to stop this formidable Indian team riding high on a successful tour of Australia.Also Read | Virat Kohli’s batsmen create history in Mount MaunganuiAlso Read | Rohit-Dhawan surpass Tendulkar-Sehwag with 14th-century standAlso Read | Dhoni misses 4th straight fifty, Rohit falls short of 23rd hundredAlso Read | Dhoni, quick as a flash, stumps Taylor.
