New Zealand vs India, 2nd ODI, India tour of New Zealand 2014

Commentary

New Zealand won by 15 runs (D/L method) | New Zealand Vs India Live Score, 2nd ODI

India have been knocked off the perch. MS Dhoni's boys find themselves 2-0 down in the face of adversity. They will have to regroup quickly if there are to stay afloat in this 5-match series against the merciless Kiwis, who are hellbent on throwing India out of their comfort zone. Expecting your warm company for the third rubber on January 25 at Auckland. Until then take care, adios!
Rajneesh Gupta: If Australia beat England in both their games, India won't be able to regain their no.1 status even if they beat New Zealand 3-2.
Ayaz Memon: Admirable chase by India, but can't win overseas consistently with just two batsmen and one bowler performing...
Mazher Arshad: India scored more runs than New Zealand and batted less overs than NZ, still they are on losing end. #DLMethod
Anjum Chopra: The over reliance on Virat Kohli very prevalent in this present Indian Team.Dhoni needs support from others. Inconsistency gettin consistent
Some views from the Twitterati:
Kane Williamson: 'It is going alright. Yeah, the batting has been pretty good in the last couple of games. Yeah I am trying to work on the footwork and concentrate (when asked of his technique against spin). It was fantastic. Hopefully we can keep it up.'
Kane Williamson is the Man of the Match for his wonderfully paced 77
Brendon McCullum: 'I thought it was a good performance. First and foremost we batted well. I though it was a tremendous game of cricket. Prior to the weather, the batting of Kane as well as Ross was outstanding as they gave us the platform. Corey again was brilliant. He provided the momentum to post a big total. The bowlers responded to pressure beautifully. They have stepped up in both games. I'm really pleased with tonight's performance. So far, we have been brilliant, we are looking forward to the remainder of the games.'
MS Dhoni: 'The bowlers were bowling on both sides of the wicket. The New Zealand side put the extra effort. The pitch slowed up towards the end, it was difficult to play the big strokes. Overall the wicket changed. In the last game Virat got out (at a crucial passage), in this particular game I got out. It was important to carry on to let the incoming batsmen to play their strokes. From 25th or 27th over, we should have gone for it. Shami has been the pick of the bowlers. Bhuvi was accurate at the end. If it (the game) gets reduced by 10 or 15 overs, the team batting second has a disadvantage.'
In response, India had only a sedate start. Though Kohli and Dhoni upped the ante at the fag end of the innings, it was all deja-vu again as 297 proved just a bit out of India's grasp. Presentation to follow shortly.
Earlier in the day, New Zealand amassed 271 runs in a rain curtailed 42-overs-per side encounter thanks to fifties from Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. Corey Anderson tonked some monster blows to fortify the Kiwis despite India's new found accuracy at the death. Shami shone again but Ishant and Jadeja were once again found wanting.
The players exchange pleasantries. As per the Duckworth-Lewis method, New Zealand have won the second ODI by 15 runs. Just when India were well on course to seal the chase, Corey Anderson, conjured up a double strike to nab both Dhoni and Jadeja in the same over. It was as deadly a blow as any as India came up short to forfeit their top dog ODI status, albeit momentarily.
41.3 Corey Anderson to Ishant Sharma 1
1 run, fired outside off, whisked away to long off. The umpire forces the players off the field as the heavens have opened up yet again. New Zealand go 2-0 up!
41.2 Corey Anderson to Mohammed Shami 1
1 run, length ball outside off, Shami slogs hard at it, the top edge balloons behind the sticks. Luke Rochi, diving to his left messes up the skier
