Shubman Gill helped India edge over the Kiwis by 12 runs despite a heroic innings by Michael Bracewell. The topsy-turvy game ended in India’s favour by the closest margin of 12 runs courtesy of brilliant double ton from Shubman Gill and a dominant bowling display from Mohammed Siraj.

Opting to bat first, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started off well with the score of 60 runs for the first wicket. Soon after the powerplay, the wickets kept falling in quick succession and India were reduced to 110/3 inside 20 overs.

However, Shubman Gill kept piling runs at one end and was ably supported by the lower middle order with three 40+ stands. Meanwhile, Shubman Gill registered his first double hundred in style helping Team India post a huge total of 349/8 in 50 overs.

In response, New Zealand batters really did not live up to expectations as Indian bowlers ran through the Kiwi top order batters, leaving them reeling at 131/6 inside 30 overs. Then came in the chief architect in the form of Michael Bracewell who along with Mitchell Santner stitched a record seventh wicket partnership of 162 runs between them with Bracewell scoring 140 and Santner scoring 57.

The bowling spearhead of India, Mohammed Siraj broke the partnership and brought India back in the game. Bracewell kept going in the chase leaving 13 runs to get in 5 balls, but it was Shardul Thakur who held on the nerve and trapped Bracewell in front of the stumps making sure India beat NZ by margin of 12 runs.
