All out for 108 runs
India bundled out New Zealand for 108 in the Raipur ODI. Mohammed Shami gave a big blow to the visiting team in the very first over. In the 11th over itself, 5 New Zealand batsmen had returned to the pavilion and the team’s score was only 15 runs. After this, Glenn Phillips first handled the innings with Michael Bracewell and then Mitchell Santner but his innings was reduced to 108 runs in the 35th over. Shami took three while Hardik and Sundar took 2-2 wickets.
This is New Zealand’s third lowest score in ODIs against India. In 2016, Visakhapatnam had reduced New Zealand’s innings to just 79 runs. In the 2010 Chennai ODI, Indian bowlers stopped New Zealand’s innings for just 103 runs. Now the team is all out for 108 runs.
Sri Lanka was stopped at 73
Last Sunday, India clashed with Sri Lanka in Thiruvananthapuram. After scoring 390 runs in the first innings, India bowled out Sri Lanka for just 73 runs. The team won that match by a record 317 runs. Even in the first match against New Zealand, the bowlers of the team bowled strongly. Took 6 wickets at 131 only. In the end, of course, the batsmen had scored freely but dew also had a big contribution in this.
