commentary

That's all we have from this contest! It was a high-scoring match but New Zealand scaled down a big target with 11 balls to spare. They have taken a lead in the 3-match series which makes the second ODI in Auckland a must-win for India. Do join us for that on Saturday, 8th February, at 1500 local (0200 GMT). Cheers!

New Zealand skipper, Tom Latham says that it was a great performance by the boys and it's been nice to cross the line. Adds that to have partnerships is always the key and the left-right combination helped them (during the century stand with Taylor). Mentions that to have wickets in hand helped them. On Ross Taylor, Latham says that he has done that for them time and again and it was a fantastic knock. Admits that their bowling is one area he is looking for improvement and hopes to achieve that in the coming games.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that it was an outstanding performance by New Zealand. Adds that they batted outstandingly well. On their bowling show, Kohli replies that they were patient enough to pick wickets and got a run out as well. Admits that Tom Latham's innings took the momentum away from them. Credits the two batsmen (Latham and Taylor) for the way they batted. States that fielding is one area they were decent but it was not their best effort. Tells that the way New Zealand played, you have to admit that overall they were the better side. Praises the new Indian openers and hopes they will continue to do the same. Lauds Shreyas Iyer also for his knock under pressure and adds that KL Rahul was brilliant too. Considers these as positive signs. Feels that sometimes the results don't go your way but if you are playing good cricket, you are in good space.

ROSS TAYLOR IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! Says that it's been an interesting summer for them and it was nice to cross the line. Mentions about the contribution of the top order and also praises the bowlers for restricting India under 350 which gave them a chance. Lauds Tom Latham for his batting and the way he targeted the short boundaries. Admits that Latham's knock made it easy for him. On completing 2000 international runs at Seddon Park, Taylor smiles and says that it's been a happy hunting ground for him. Hopes to put up a good performance in Eden Park as well. Shares that you try to not take the hangover of the last games and it was nice to stay till the end to finish this match.

India weren't too poor in the field but the dropped catch of Ross Taylor on 10 cost them the match. Their bowlers tried hard on a flat deck but the execution of the plan, especially when the pair of Taylor and Latham was batting, was not up to the mark. They would consider it as a rare off day at work and would look to bounce back in the second ODI. Stay tuned for the presentation...

What a scintillating knock by Ross Taylor! By no means, this was an easy chase. The Kiwi openers provided a decent start but it was not a quickfire one. The asking rate was quite high and the partnership between Ross Taylor and Henry Nicholls didn't take care of it at all. The Men in Blue were on top till the run out of Nicholls and the landscape of this run chase took a complete turn once Tom Latham arrived in the middle. The southpaw batted against his nature and stroked a 48-ball 69. He punished the Indian bowlers in the middle overs and snatched the momentum away from them. Rosco also joined the party and bathed in the light of renewed energy that Latham brought to the crease. Together the pair amassed 138 runs off 80 balls and brought the chase on track. The wickets did fall after that but the presence of Taylor meant that the Black Caps always had the game in their grasp.

New Zealand finally taste success! They have broken the deadlock. The Kiwis came close to winning on so many occasions in the T20I series but failed to cross the final hurdle. But not this time. Ross Taylor was the culprit in the past but he made sure that he stayed till the end to see his side home. This is now New Zealand's highest successful chase in ODIs.

S Thakur to R Taylor, Direct hit would have been curtains for Ross Taylor! That would have made this game very interesting. A length ball outside off, Rosco taps it down to point and attempts to steal a run right under Jadeja's nose. Sir misses his shy at the bowler's end and Rosco survives.

M Shami to R Taylor, OUT! Colin de Grandhomme is well short of the crease. Short in length and around off, Taylor gets on top of the bounce and pulls it all along the ground to deep mid-wicket. He wants the second run and Colin responds but very slowly. Shreyas Iyer sends in a flat throw to the bowler's end where Kohli collects the ball and breaks the stumps. He sets off in celebration as the on-field umpire goes upstairs. The replays spell the end of de Grandhomme. Are we in for a comeback from India?

Appeal for a run out! Virat Kohli is once again sure and runs in celebration. The third umpire is referred...

Shami delivers a length ball around middle and leg, Neesham attempts to send it over cow corner but gets more height than distance behind his shot. Kedar Jadhav moves across to his left in the deep and takes the skier safely. Neesham's visibly disappointed on his way back.

S Thakur to R Taylor, Shout for a caught behind! The umpire stays still. Kohli has a chat with his keeper and bowler before turning down the option for a DRS. A 140 kph fuller length delivery outside off, Taylor tries to drive it through the line but fails to middle his shot. There is some sound as it goes behind to the keeper and they appeal. Nothing from the umpire and the replays later on finds that it was due to the bat hitting the turf. Good decision.

K Yadav to Tom Latham, FOUR! Bang! Flatter and quicker around off, fuller in length, Latham dances down the track and hammers it to the long off fence for a boundary. 14 from the over and Yadav continues to prove expensive.

K Yadav to Tom Latham, Beaten all ends up! Latham was completely at sea there. Kuldeep dishes out a googly and bowls it slower through the air. It lands and breaks back in slightly, Latham stands back inside the crease, probably waiting to play it with the turn but it spins back in and beats the inside edge. Not far away from the off pole.

J Bumrah to R Taylor, OUT! Fantastic athleticism shown by the Indian skipper and that has resulted in a run out. The set batsman is out of here and India have broken the nagging 62-run stand. Bumrah delivers a slower length ball around off. It cuts back into the batsman as Taylor attempts to work it on the leg side. It drops in the cover region off his thigh pad and they attempt to steal a leg bye. But Kohli is very active, anticipates the moment, charges towards the ball, picks it up and dives forward to score a direct hit. Nicholls also dives in but the Indian players are sure that Henry is short. The square leg umpire confirms it from the third umpire before giving the marching orders. 177 needed off 129 balls.

Direct hit! Kohli is pumped up. Is Nicholls gone? Referred upstairs and replays show that Henry's dive has not saved him! Big break for India.

K Yadav to R Taylor, Nicholls survives a run out scare. Full and outside off, Taylor pushes it towards point and sets off for a single. But Nicholls is not sure. He takes a start and then stops. Seeing that, Rosco stutters and eventually, both batsmen are stranded in the middle of the pitch. Now, the batsmen start to run as Kohli gets to the ball from first slip. He has a split second to decide which end to throw at. Chooses the striker's end but he has to back-flick the ball. Does so but the throw is wide. Rahul reaches out, collects to his right and disturbs the stumps. The appeal is referred upstairs but replays show that Henry is in. Perhaps, if Kohli had chosen the bowler's end, Taylor would have been a goner.

Replays show that while playing the shot, Blundell lost his balance and his foot got dragged out. Never came back in. Two quick wickets for India.
