Brendon McCullum promises to rattle India with pace

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum promised to keep the foot on the pedal and torment Indian batsmen with pace and bounce, which they were extremely uncomfortable with during the first match in Napier.

“The result today is huge for us. To start the series against what is a very good Indian team and then Virat Kohli performed as well as what he did. Yet we come out on top, it is a really good sign. I am delighted for the guys, delighted with today’s performance,” said McCullum at the post match press conference after his team’s 24-run win over India.

Chasing 293, India lost the first ODI of the five-match series with Kohli’s 111-ball 123 going down the drain.

McCullum said there were still four more matches to go and it would not be easy for the hosts.

“There are still four tough games to go and India will get better as the tour goes on. But there is a little bit we can improve on as well,” he said.

The captain applauded his batsmen for handling the spinners well and the bowlers for taking three quick wickets of Kohli, MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja to turn the match in Kiwis’ favour.
