Ambati Rayudu was dismissed for 20 as India have found themselves under neck-deep trouble needing runs in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at Wellington.


Matt Henry picked up his third wicket. Rayudu tried to accelerate the scoring by coming down the track against Henry and got a leading edge which flew straight to Kane Williamson at point. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has completed his 30th ODI fifty.


MS Dhoni and Kohli are the batsmen leading India’s charge now. The Indians have failed increase their scoring rate and have ended up putting themselves under pressure. The slow scoring started right at the top with openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan struggling to time their shots.


Matt Henry, on his debut has so far dismissed Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Rayudu.
