India vs New Zealand

New Zealand posted a competitive total of 273 all out in their 50 overs against India in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 match at Dharamshala on Sunday.

Daryl Mitchell was the star of the show for the Kiwis, scoring a brilliant 130 off 127 balls with nine fours and five sixes. He was well supported by Rachin Ravindra, who made 75 off 87 balls with six fours and a six. The duo added 158 runs for the fourth wicket after New Zealand had lost their top three batsmen for just 33 runs.

Highlights of New Zealand Innings

  • New Zealand captain Tom Latham won the toss and opted to bat first on a good-looking pitch, but his decision backfired as India’s pacers struck early.
  • Jasprit Bumrah removed Devon Conway for a duck in the second over, while Mohammed Siraj dismissed Will Young for 17 in the seventh over.
  • Ravindra joined Mitchell at the crease and the pair steadied the innings with some sensible batting. They rotated the strike well and punished the loose deliveries whenever they got the chance.
  • The partnership blossomed as New Zealand reached 100 in the 21st over. Ravindra reached his maiden ODI fifty in the 25th over, while Mitchell followed suit in the 29th over.
  • The pair accelerated the scoring rate and took New Zealand past 150 in the 32nd over. They looked set to take New Zealand to a big total, but India struck back with two quick wickets.
  • Kuldeep Yadav broke the stand by trapping Ravindra lbw for 75 in the 36th over, while Mohammed Shami removed Latham for five in the next over.
  • Mitchell continued to bat aggressively and reached his maiden ODI hundred in the 42nd over with a six off Bumrah. He was running out of partners as India’s bowlers kept taking wickets at regular intervals.
  • Glenn Phillips made 23 off 26 balls before he was caught by Shreyas Iyer off Shami in the 44th over. Mark Chapman scored six off eight balls before he was bowled by Bumrah in the 46th over. Mitchell Santner scored one off two balls before he was run out by Siraj in the same over.
  • Mitchell tried to hit as many runs as possible in the final overs, but he fell in the 49th over as he holed out to Rohit Sharma off Shami. He walked off to a standing ovation from the crowd and his teammates for his superb knock.
  • Matt Henry was bowled by Shami for a duck in the same over, while Lockie Ferguson was run out by Kuldeep for one in the last over. Trent Boult remained unbeaten on zero as New Zealand were bowled out for 273.
