IND vs NZ Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today’s Match
Westpac Stadium, Wellington, February 03 at 07:30 AM IST
When Trent Boult is on a song, he can deteriorate any batting line-up put in front of him. It was his day at the Seddon Park in Hamilton as his lethal swing bowling got the best of Indian top-order which meant they were bowled out for a paltry 92 in 30.5 overs.
Rohit Sharma’s first game as the skipper outside the Asian sub-continent did not go the merry way as his side went down mercilessly against some quality swing bowling of Trent Boult. If Boult was causing trouble to the Indian batsmen from one end, it was Colin de Grandhomme who kept the pressure on from the other.
The duo operated in tandem and shared 8 wickets between them, Boult ended up with his fifth 5-wicket haul in one-day cricket, while Colin de Grandhomme ended up with 3 for 26 in his quota of 10 overs. Skipper Kane Williamson did not have to look for any other alternatives as the two bowled out 20 of the 3o overs in the first innings.
The chase was never going to be a demanding one and the Blackcaps did not make any mess of it by reaching the target with 8 wickets in hand and almost 35 overs to spare.
Now, as both teams head to the capital for the final game, the visitors would eye to make it 4-1 and avenge the humiliation they suffered in Hamilton, while the hosts will look to make it two in a row to give themselves a confidence booster for the upcoming T20I series.
