Shubman Gill’s brilliant double ton helped India edge over New Zealand in a nail biting contest, despite Michael Bracewell’s late heroics in the first ODI. The action now moves to Shaheed Veer Narayan International Stadium, Raipur where both India and New Zealand will face each other in the second ODI of three-match series. Interestingly, this is the first time Team India is playing an international match in this stadium.
Speaking about how the last game panned out, Rohit & co won the toss and opted to bat first, both the openers started well with a 60-run stand for the first wicket. Soon after the powerplay, Team India lost wickets in quick succession as they were reduced to 110/3 inside 20 overs with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan among the victims at the top.
However, Shubman Gill, the chief architect in the setting, kept the scoreboard ticking at one end and was ably supported by middle order and lower middle order batters with three 40+ partnerships. Meanwhile, Gill also registered his maiden double hundred in ODIs becoming the fifth and youngest Indian batter to do so. Double hundred from Gill helped Team India post a big total of 349/8 in 50 overs with second top score being Rohit's 34.
In response to the 349, New Zealand batters did not live to the expectations as Indian bowlers ran through the Kiwi’s top order leaving them groggy at 131/6 inside 30 overs. Then came the rescue pair in the form of Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner who together put on 162-run record stand for the seventh wicket.
Both the players kept the chase lively and interesting as the Kiwis were in need of 56 runs from 25 balls, a doable task with Michael Bracewell on sublime run. But it was Siraj's brilliance that broke the fine partnership of the duo in the end of 46th over,eventually sealing the first match for India by a close margin of 12 runs.
