Team India chased down the 274 runs total against New Zealand with two overs and four wickets to spare. Maestro batter Virat Kohli once again rose to the occasion and led India to a comfortable win against the Kiwis. Kohli stood tall and played a mesmerizing knock of 95 runs off 104 deliveries. In fact, it would have been Kohli’s another century, but he holed out in deep mid-wicket trying to put the final nail in the coffin.
Skipper Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started off India’s innings on a strong note. The two scored 71 runs before the dismissal of the skipper, who played a rather aggressive innings of 46 runs off 40 deliveries.
Soon after Rohit’s departure, Gill was also dismissed and the Kiwis were on top. However, Shreyas Iyer and Virat Kohli stabilized the innings and 52-run partnership. Kohli then partnered with KL Rahul for a 50-run partnership.
Things looked pretty simple for Team India, but KL Rahul’s wicket brought gloom. Soon, Suryakumar Yadav also was dismissed as a result of an embarrassing mix-up between him and Virat Kohli. However, it was the pair of Ravindra Jadeja and Virat Kohli, who again, got the innings back on track and added crucial runs to take the team close to the win. Ravindra Jadeja (39*) struck the winning blow to New Zealand with a boundary.
Earlier in the contest, New Zealand were asked to bat first by the Indian skipper. The Kiwis riding on the back of Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra’s fine knocks, put up 273 runs total in 50 overs.
While Daryl Mitchell played a fantastic knock of 130 runs in 127 deliveries, Rachin Ravindra scored 75 runs off 87 deliveries before getting dismissed by Mohammad Shami. Barring the two aforementioned batters, no New Zealand player could contribute significantly to their team total. The next best score was 23 runs by Glenn Phillips.
Speedster Mohammad Shami scalped a fifer in the process and became the only Indian bowler to have two five-wicket hauls in the history of the World Cup.
With the win over New Zealand, Team India continues their unhindered run in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023. After playing five matches in the tournament, the team remains unbeaten. India claimed the top spot in the ICC World Cup 2023 points table following the win with 10 points.
