New Zealand put India on the backfoot in the first powerplay as Rohit Sharma was dismissed for just four runs in the fifth One-Day International at Hamilton on Friday. Shikhar Dhawan too was caught by Nathan McCullum off debutant Matt Henry for nine. India are on 20 for two after 10 overs chasing 304.

Rohit took a few balls to settle in and then tried to late cut Kyle Mills past the slip cordon. When the batsman is not in form things often go wrong and Rohit ended up giving a regulation slip catch to Ross Taylor.

His opening partner Shikhar Dhawan too struggled to get going and survived a close call in the fourth over against Mitchell McClenaghan. Dhawan tentatively prodded at an away going delivery and Nathan McCullum took a sharp catch. Replays showed that the ball had bounced before going in to McCullum’s hands.

Virat Kohli walked in at his usual No 3 position after opening the innings in the previous match. Kohli played some authoritative strokes but struggled against debutant Matt Henry who moved the ball away from the right-hander who was beaten twice. After struggling for a while, Dhawan edged one straight to third slip Nathan McCullum out for nine.

India are chasing a target of 304 after Ross Taylor slammed a ton and shared a 152-run partnership with Kane Williamson.
