India are 239 for six in 41 overs in the third One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at Auckland. The Indians are chasing 315 and Ravichandran Ashwin is on 51 and Ravindra Jadeja is on 20
Ashwin and Jadeja have taken the attack after the wicket of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. They have hit boundaries at regular intervals and have brought down the required rate marginally.
Both batsmen were intent on capitalising on the batting powerplay and picked the gaps to precision.
The great thing for India is that Ashwin has played the bouncer quite well and has essayed a few boundaries by pulling them. Ashwin then moved to his maiden half century in ODIs by reverse sweeping Nathan McCullum.
