Dhawal Kulkarni, who replaced the injured Jasprit Bumrah, leaked 37 runs off his first four overs. In fact, openers Tom Latham and Martin Guptill did exactly the same. The duo blasted 80 runs in the first 10 overs. Guptill reached his 18th half-century and looked good for a big score. However, as fate may have it, star of the first ODI Hardik Pandya used his stock delivery to end Guptill s innings on 72. Stalwart Ross Taylor joined Williamson in the middle and added 46 runs for the third wicket.

Wickets tumbled one after another and New Zealand could churn out only 260 runs on the scoreboard. What seemed like a big total was reduced to a below-par one. Credit goes to the Indian bowling unit, for they performed well in tandem even at crucial juncture.
