New Zealand vs India 2019 1st ODI: India had a good start to the five-match ODI series against New Zealand as they beat the hosts by 8th wickets on DLS method in the first ODI in Napier, thanks to Shikhar Dhawan, who remained unbeaten on 75 runs.
Kane Williamson’s 36th ODI fifty went in vain as India bowled with clinical precision to bundle out New Zealand for a paltry 157 in the first One-day International in Napier on Wednesday. Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was the most successful bowler for India; he took 4 wickets off 39 runs in 10 overs, while seamer Mohammed Shami finished with an excellent 3/19 in six overs.
The match also saw play being interrupted when the sun made it hard for the batsmen to spot the ball, leading to an interruption that has never been seen in international cricket before.
The second ODI between India and New Zealand will take place on Saturday, January 26.
