    IND 42/0 in 9 overs

  • January 21, 2023 17:29

    IND 18/0 in 4 overs

    Henry Shipley continues. Shipley to Gill, FOUR! Gill tries to pull its covers but the ball takes an outside edge and travels to the third-man area where no fielder was placed.

    Henry Shipley comes into the attack from the other end. Full length and outside off, Rohit guides it to the point, dot ball to start the over. Three dot balls to follow.

  • January 21, 2023 16:56

    Lockie Ferguson to start the proceedings for New Zealand. He starts with a short ball, outside off and Rohit leaves. Ferguson is getting slight movement in the air. Ferguson to Rohit, swing and miss! lovely ball, shaping outside and Rohit was clueless this time. Ferguson to Rohit, loud appeal for lbw but Rohit survives with an inside edge otherwise it was plumb in front of the wicket. Three brilliant balls to start the over. Rohit carefully negotiates the next three to take a single off the last ball. One gone, India 1 for no loss.

  • January 21, 2023 16:51
    Chase begins!

    Kuldeep Yadav continues from the other end. Kuldeep to Tickner, OUT! Kuldeep gives the final blow as New Zealand is bundled out for just 108 runs against India in the new stadium in Raipur. A flighted overpitched delivery on the middle comes in for Tickner and hits his pads while he was trying to play in the wrong line. NZ reviews this but three reds confirm the dismissal. India will need 109 runs in 50 overs to seal the three-match ODI series.

  • January 21, 2023 16:08
    NZ 105/9 in 34 overs

    Sundar continues, Sundar to Ferguson OUT! Ferguson departs for 1 run as it was the repeat of Phillips’ wicket. Ferguson goes for an aerial route but Suryakumar takes another easy catch at the deep mid-wicket. New Zealand is nine down.

  • January 21, 2023 16:05
    NZ 105/8 in 33 overs

    Kuldeep comes back in the attack as Rohit wants to clear the innings. Two singles off this over as NZ somehow negotiated this over. However, the wicket is very near.

  • January 21, 2023 16:03
    NZ 103/8 in 32 overs

    Sundar gets his first wicket in the first ball of the over. A short ball, outside off, Phillps stays back and swivel across to hit it past mid-wicket but Surya takes an early catch at the deep mid-wicket. NZ is eight down as India’s eyeing the all-out very quickly here. A wicket maiden for Sundar too. Back-to-back wicket maidens for India.

  • January 21, 2023 15:53
    NZ 103/7 in 31 overs

    Hardik Pandya continues and he strikes in the first ball! Hardik rolls his fingers and bowls a full-length on the middle and Santner stays back to punch it but the ball gets an inside edge and hits the wickets. The 47-run stand breaks here as Santner departs for 27. A wicket maiden for Hardik.

    NZ 103/6 in 30 overs

    Kuldeep is out from the attack and Washington Sundar replaces him. Sundar to Santner takes a single from the first ball. Sundar to Phillips, another single as New Zealand reaches the 100-run mark. Three runs came from the last four balls as NZ 103 for 5 after 30.

  • January 21, 2023 15:48
    NZ 98/6 in 29 overs

    Hardik Pandya comes in for Thakur. A quiet over as three singles came.

  • January 21, 2023 15:47
    NZ 95/6 in 28 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav continues. Santner smokes him for two boundaries to take off the over. New Zealand looks in a much better position after getting five down for just 15 runs. 10 off this over as NZ is 95 for 6.

  • January 21, 2023 15:41
    NZ 84/6 in 27 overs

    Thakur continues from the other end and both the batters will now look to score some runs to at least give themselves something to salvage when they come to bowl. The pitch has been bowling-friendly and anything beyond 200 could be a fighting total for New Zealand. Thakur starts with a wide. Better from Thakur as he concedes only one run from the next four balls. Thakur to Phillips, FOUR! shortish length on the middle line and Glenn pulls it past the deep square leg for a boundary. Seven runs came from this over and New Zealand will need more of these overs.

  • January 21, 2023 15:33
    NZ 78/6 in 26 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav to bowl his fifth straight over. Five singles came from this over as the batters are taking extra precautions against the left-arm wrist spinner here.

  • January 21, 2023 15:32
    NZ 73/6 in 25 overs

    Shardul Thakur comes back in the attack for Siraj. A single for Santner to start over. Phillips sees off the next three balls. Thakur to Phillips, FOUR! drives it past covers for a boundary. Five runs came from this over.

  • January 21, 2023 15:28
    NZ 68/6 in 24 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav continues. He starts with a flighted delivery to Santner, solid defence. Kuldeep is getting a decent turn of the pitch here. The second ball turns out for the left-hander and Santner pushes it to covers, still a dot ball. Kuldeep to Santner, dropped! Yadav missed the opportunity as Santner hits the wrong’un straight to the bowler but Kuldeep drops it. Santner survives. One run came from this over off the last delivery.

  • January 21, 2023 15:24
    Hardik’s masterclass on the field!
  • January 21, 2023 15:23
    NZ 67/6 in 23 overs

    Another change in the attack, is Siraj comes into the attack for Shami. Only two off this over as India is commanding this passage of play here.

  • January 21, 2023 15:21
    NZ 65/6 in 22 overs

    Kuldeep to bowl his third. Kuldeep is giving no chance to the batters to open their arms and score some runs. Only one single came from this over.

  • January 21, 2023 15:19
    NZ 64/6 in 21 overs

    Mohammed Shami continues. Shami to Santner, FOUR! beautiful shot. A full length at the middle and Santner flicks it past mid-wicket for a boundary. A little recovery as Shami deliveries four dot balls to end the over. New Zealand 64 for 6 after 21.

  • January 21, 2023 15:14
    NZ 60/6 in 20 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav bowls his second over. Four singles off his over.

  • January 21, 2023 15:12
    NZ 56/6 in 19 overs

    Mohammed Shami continues. Shami to Bracewell, FOUR! Bracewell is making his mark in this game as well. He takes the stride to drive the full-toss past mid-on for the first boundary of the over. Shami to Bracewell, FOUR! again, two-in-two for Bracewell as Shami gives another full-toss and Bracewell takes it with both hands to register for another boundary, this time in the mid-wicket region! Shami to Bracewell, OUT! last laugh for Shami as he surprises Bracewell with an attempted short ball and Bravwell tries to pull this one but the ball nicks and goes away to Ishan Kishan. Sixth down for New Zealand. Eight runs and a wicket off this over.

  • January 21, 2023 15:01
    NZ 48/5 in 18 overs

    Rohit introduces spin for the first time. Kuldeep, left-arm wrist spinner comes into the attack. Five singles from the over as both batters negotiated the first over from Kuldeep with ease.

  • January 21, 2023 14:59
    NZ 44/5 in 17 overs

    Mohammed Shami comes back into the attack after a break. Shami to Bracewell, FOUR! that is a cracker of a shot! outside off, length delivery and Bracewell slams it for a boundary. Good comeback from Shami as he gives only a single off the last five balls as New Zealand closes in on the 50-run mark.

  • January 21, 2023 14:55
    NZ 38/5 in 16 overs

    Hardik bowls his fourth over. Leg byes for a single to start the over as the balls go away through Bracewell’s pads. Pandya to Phillips, three runs, length delivery, middle and Phillips flicks it past mid-wicket to run three. Five off this over.

  • January 21, 2023 14:52
    NZ 33/5 in 15 overs

    Shardul Thakur continues to bowl from the other end. He keeps both the batters in check and gave only one single in the first five balls. Thakur to Phillips, FOUR! too full and outside off, Phillips drives it past mid-on to release some pressure. Five off the over.

  • January 21, 2023 14:46
    NZ 28/5 in 14 overs

    Hardik Pandya takes another maiden and both Bracewell and Phillips are very watchful while negotiating the Indian attack. Shardul has been a little off the radar despite picking a wicket and New Zealand will look to rebuild after the drinks break. The opening hour of play has been sensational with India decimating New Zealand. But, with Bracewell at the crease, the Black Caps will hope to rebuild and post a decent total on board.

  • January 21, 2023 14:40
    NZ 28/5 in 13 overs

    Bracewell and Phillips are off the mark and India has to be careful of not to let the advantage let go. India has struggled to dig deep into the tail and polish off things after picking wickets upfront and they need to continue their relentless approach and not let New Zealand off the hook.

  • January 21, 2023 14:37
    NZ 24/5 in 12 overs

    Glenn Phillips finally gets cracking as he counter-attacks to give New Zealand a bit of momentum with a couple of boundaries as Michael Bracewell, the previous match centurion comes out to the middle.

  • January 21, 2023 14:34
    NZ 15/5 in 11 overs

    The wickets keep tumbling as Shardul Thakur strikes to remove the New Zealand skipper and this is absolutely brilliant from India. Latham pokes an away going delivery, gets a thick outside edge and Shubman Gill takes his second catch of the match and the first slip specialist isn’t missing anything. India on top.

  • January 21, 2023 14:25
    NZ 15/4 in 10 overs

    Hardik Pandya the all-rounder has come to the fore with a brilliant left-hand low grab, a second caught and bowled in this innings as Devon Conway falls to leave New Zealand four down. The pace attack is looking threatening and India has been relentless with Pandya peeling off a wicket-maiden to put the home side firmly on top. Not the scorecard New Zealand would have wanted as the first PowerPlay belongs to India.

  • January 21, 2023 14:18
    NZ 15/3 in 9 overs

    Shardul Thakur is the first change bowler and Shami has gone off the field after taking two wickets. Shardul was expensive in Hyderabad and it will be interesting to see how he goes about and ensures he doesn’t release the pressure. Five comes from Shardul’s first over.

  • January 21, 2023 14:15
    NZ 10/3 in 8 overs

    The New Zealand skipper Tom Latham with a wealth of experience under his belt is out in the middle and he joins Devon Conway as the duo faces a relentless Indian attack comprising Mohammed Siraj and Shami. The economy has been excellent from both the new ball bowlers as Siraj records his first maiden and the ball is moving around in Raipur. New Zealand in a spot of bother, weathering a fierce bowling storm.

  • January 21, 2023 14:10
    NZ 10/3 in 7 overs

    Shami strikes again and takes an excellent reflex catch to put India on top as New Zealand loses its third wicket within the PowerPlay. Shami and Siraj have been excellent in line, very disciplined lengths and attacking the stumps, making the batsmen play. On this occasion, Nicholls gets a leading edge while trying to negate the swing and Shami did well on his part to extend his left hand and take a good catch. Raipur on its List A debut is producing something special.

  • January 21, 2023 14:04
    NZ 9/2 in 6 overs

    Now then Mohammed Siraj joins the party as he removes Henry Nicholls who falls for just two runs in 20 balls as the batsman goes for a hard push at a ball that was pitched in the off stump channel only to edge to Shubman Gill at first slip and the latest double centurion makes no mistake at first slip. India all over New Zealand in Raipur.

  • January 21, 2023 13:57
    NZ 8/1 in 5 overs

    Rohit took his time to elect to bowl after winning the toss and it looks like a very good decision. The pitch has got something for the fast bowlers and Nicholls almost played-on a Shami delivery. New Zealand under some serious pressure and it’s a very cautious approach after the fall of Allen. Not a single boundary has been scored and runs have come only in singles with the current run rate at 1.54 rpo.

  • January 21, 2023 13:53
    NZ 6/1 in 4 overs

    Siraj is complementing well with Siraj and the fast bowler has been terrific with the new ball. Gives just a single as Nicholls gets off the mark with a single off the last ball with a shot to covers.

  • January 21, 2023 13:49
    NZ 5/1 in 3 overs

    Excellent seam position and posing difficult questions to the batsmen, Shami has started in a fabulous fashion and the lengths in particular have been fantastic. Pitching it up and getting the ball swinging into the batsmen and also taking it away. Nicholls is yet to get off the mark and Convya having faced eight balls has scored just two runs. Top high quality bowling from India.

  • January 21, 2023 13:43
    NZ 3/1 after 2 overs

    Devon Conway is off the mark as Mohammed Siraj starts well, complementing his bowling partner Shami. Henry Nicholls has faced five balls and is yet to get off the mark.

  • January 21, 2023 13:38
    NZ 0/1 in 1 over

    Excellent first over from Mohammed Shami as he strikes in his fifth delivery with a top delivery to remove Finn Allen. An inswinger that nipped back in and the ball went past the inside edge to disturb the timber. India strikes in the very first over and for a change, it’s Shami with the breakthrough.

    TOSS UPDATE - India wins toss, opts to bowl first

    Tom Latham called for heads, it is tails and Rohit Sharma wins the toss. A bit of a brain fade moment for him as he looks confused about whether to choose bat first or to field. He eventually chose to field first as New Zealand will have to bat first on a new surface.

    Pitch Report by Murali Karthik

    “The 50th venue to host an ODI in India, it has huge boundaries on all sides of the ground. The pitch itself has an even covering of grass and there are some cracks on it. It’s hard, there is some bounce on offer and should help the pacers. Dew could be a factor and the captain winning the toss could choose to field first. It is an excellent batting surface though”

    Paras Mhambrey on Shardul Thakur’s selection ahead of Umran Malik

    “That (batting) is one of the reasons why we picked him (Thakur). He adds depth to the batting. We will have to see the surface and decide the combination accordingly. He has performed well for India.”

  • January 21, 2023 12:06
    Eyes on Ish Sodhi

    Ish Sodhi, the seasoned leggie, had a long spell in the nets in the afternoon after missing the series opener due to a niggle. With Santner and Bracewell sizzling as allrounders, fitting Sodhi into the team will be a challenge for captain Tom Latham.

    Bowling a concern as India eyes series win against New Zealand

    It has been almost a decade since the Shaheed Veer Narayan International Cricket Stadium first hosted an Indian Premier League game. Still, the big game buzz is loudest in and around the Chhattisgarh capital.

    It may sound as unbelievable as Michael Bracewell’s whirlwind knock in the series-opener in Hyderabad. But the stadium will host its maiden international game — also the first List A match — when India takes on New Zealand on Saturday in a bid to seal yet another bilateral ODI series.

    While the fake jersey sellers were in action, with the locals bargaining big time with the street-side vendors, the ones that will be fortunate to enter the colossal stadium - with a capacity of 65,000 - will be hoping for the Indian team to continue its fireworks over the weekend.
