India are 64 for one at the end of 15 overs while chasing 293 in the first One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at Napier. Virat Kohli is batting on 25 and Shikhar Dhawan is on 29.
Adam Milne, the much talked about pace sensation, came into the attack and bowled with fire. he did breach the 150 kmph mark a few times. However, when he delivered at 153 kmph, it was full and Kohli merely pushed it back past him for a four.
The Indian batsmen have also been taking the singles on offer and are still setting the ground for the run-chase. They may have started off a little slowly, but are backing themselves to do the job. On the other hand, New Zealand know that they need a wicket or two to make the Indians panic.
The middle-order hasn’t been tested too many times during the course of the last 12 months.
Corey Anderson has also come to the bowling crease to bowl his left-arm medium pace.
