ODI winner prediction: India beat Kiwi 3-0 to take first place

A record opening stand from Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill before Shardul Thakur defeated the New Zealand resistance by three wickets.

500 was not impossible. But 400 was definitely takeout. That’s what the opening blitz of 212 runs, the best against New Zealand in the ODI, lives up to expectations. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill posted quick hundreds as India scored just 24.1 overs and he scored 200 overs, but on Tuesday he scored 50 overs in his third ODI at Indore. Finished with 385 in the middle. New Zealand initially tried to catch up thanks to a great hundreds from Devon Conway, but Shardul Thakur dismissed Darryl Mitchell and Tom Latham in 25 overs and Glenn Phillips in 28 overs. bottom. Mitchell Santner and Michael Bracewell held back again, but this time Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chachal’s list his spinner his duo swept the lower rankings, giving India his 90-run sweeping victory and his provided his 3–0 win in the ODI leg of the tournament.

As Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj rested, this was a fine bowling performance of his that could overshadow India’s punching power. But Sharma pointed it out in his post-match presentation.

“I wanted to bring Chahal and Umran (Malik) out and put pressure on them,” he said. “We have had runs on the board but there is no safe total on this kind of ground. We stuck to the plan and kept our nerves. , some people call him a wizard every time I give the ball to Kuldeep he wickets the wrist spinner the more you play it the better so he gives him more I have to give you a lot of games.”

The record tumbled when Sharma and Gill hit. The Indian captain lined up with Ricky Ponting and just behind Sachin Tendulkar (49th century) and Virat Kohli (46th century) as Sharma scored his 30th ODI 100, first in 1100 days.

Gill amassed his 360 runs in those innings to tie him with Babbar Azam (vs the West Indies, 2016) as the top run-getter in the three-game ODI series. This is India’s second fastest 200 in ODIs, on the first wicket he has a run rate of 8.10, opening over 200 in his ODIs in men is the fourth highest in the stands and he is It was great if you hit it first.

It may be flat in this part of the world, but Indore’s course was ideal for playing off the line. The outfield was similarly lightning fast, with some of the shortest boundaries compared to Indian venues. Sharma and Gil took some time to watch it before scoring six each in five overs. Initially, Gil played the attacker. Lockie Ferguson got off to a solid start, bowling a maiden and allowing just her six in three overs. But Gil hit him 4, 4, 4, 6, 4 and milked Ferguson 22 times. Sharma hit 17 from 10 overs and Gill scored another 10 in 16 overs, all clean hits. In India, 76 balls increased by 100 balls, 107 balls increased by 150 balls, and 145 balls increased by 200 balls. India was apparently set up for something special.

Luck also played a role. A thick edge went through the wicketkeeper’s glove four times, an inside edge missed a stump and sailed into the stands six times. But it was also a day when both batsmen connected the ball very well.The drives were crisp, the late cuts were deft, Gill hooked and pulled majestically, but Sharma often came down the lane and left the bowler’s. Threw the ball over his head. Nothing was wrong until Sharma bowled cleanly after missing a big throw against Michael Bracewell. In turn, Gil Blair mistook Tickner for Conway.

It was a strange passage of time for India. With over 20 overs remaining, the next batsmen had plenty of time to adapt to the slower pitch, but Kohli, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav tried to keep the pace, with mixed results. bottom. It fell into the hands of New Zealand as they quickly stifled India’s batting average with slow bowlers. India could only add from 250 in 32 overs and 135 in the next 18 overs. The main reason was the lack of border hits. During the first game, 22 4s and 11 6s were hit. The remaining hits were just 11 limit and eight 6s.

Despite all the record-breaking hits in the first half of the innings, India also inexplicably slowed down, scoring just 55 points between the 31st and 40th, just a margin to lose three wickets. It was 5. However, India has been hit hard. So Hardik Pandya came on at his number six and took 36 to 50 balls in a mellow innings, with wickets continuing to fall to the other side. With that and his 17-ball 25 for Thakur, India topped his 400 runs.
