    Tom Latham wins the Man of the Match for his match-winning fourth international hundred.

  • 9:49 PM IST

    Virat Kohli: “New Zealand deserved to win. The wicket settled down nicely after 20 overs in the second innings. But if couple of other guys had chipped in with the bat, we would have got 30-40 runs extra. We enjoyed watching Tom. He has not played a lot of international cricket. So credit goes to him”

  • 9:40 PM IST

    This is the highest run-chase at this venue. The previous best was for India against Sri Lanka in the 2011 World Cup final. This is also New Zealand’s highest successful run-chase against India. They had chased down 279 at Hamilton in 2014.

  • 9:34 PM IST

    Ok. So, Nicholls finishes off in style. This is the highest run chase at this venue. First ball. He goes boom. Four. The 200-run stand between Latham and Taylor is now the highest stand for NZ v Ind in ODIs.

  • 9:33 PM IST

    And Taylor perishes in quest of the winning run. Chahal takes a catch at cover. Taylor’s brilliance ends at 95 after some drama.

    OUT! Ross Taylor c Yuzvendra Chahal b Bhuvneshwar Kumar 95 (100)
  • 9:31 PM IST

    So Latham gets a single. The 200 partnership comes up. New Zealand need 1. Taylor need 1 maximum for his hundred. Can he finish off in style?

  • 9:30 PM IST

  • 9:26 PM IST

    1LB, 0 1 0. Can Taylor get there? Bumrah traps him on the pad. India go for the review. Is it a no-ball? Umpire gives the benefit to the bowler. That was close. Taylor swung and missed. It’s crashing on to the stumps but Taylor will survive because of umpire’s call. India keep the review. Taylor is still on 95 and it’s Latham to face the last ball.

  • 9:22 PM IST

    On this evening at Wankhede, will Shastri scream from the dressing room, “Taylor finishes in style!”

  • 9:22 PM IST

    Even Kohli applauds. NZ needs 6. Taylor needs 5 for this hundred.

  • 9:20 PM IST

    Thick edge from Taylor and he moves to 90s and now a single. Latham on 99. And that’s his fourth ODI ton. What an outstanding innings, this!

  • 9:18 PM IST

    Bumrah can change games. Can he? For now Taylor has dispatched him to his favourite part of the ground — deep midwicket. Nothing seems to be going India’s way. The next ball is pulled away for a boundary. The race has begun now. Who will reach to the three-figure mark first. Well, Latham clips Bumrah over deep midwicket for a six! He moves to 99. NZ need 13. Latham needs 1 and Taylor needs 12.

  • 9:12 PM IST

    Kuldeep to Latham, and another reverse sweep for four. The left-hander has decoded the Indian Chinaman. Meanwhile, Latham has moved into 90s. New Zealand need 30 from last 5 overs. Kuldeep finishes with 10-0-64-1.

  • 9:08 PM IST

    Latham shifts gears. The over from Chahal goes — 1 1 1 6 1 1

    That six cleared the deep square-leg fielder Pandey. NZ need 38 from 36 balls.
  • 9:04 PM IST

    57 needed from 48 balls. Kuldeep will be bowling. He hasn’t really impressed today. That is the issue with wrist spinners. But it’s never too late. Can he turn it around? No, Latham wins the first ball. He picks the length early and reverse pulls it for a boundary. He was brilliant with sweeps in the last tour and he has only improved. And that’s the 150 stand. Kuldeep bowls a perfect orthodox Chinaman to confuse Latham. It takes the outside edge and fetches the batsman two. New Zealand need 49 runs from 42 balls. The Kiwis have a mini drinks break and Kohli doesn’t look very pleased.

  • 8:59 PM IST

    While the cricketers struggle on field. Hockey has brought some laurels. Congrats, India

  • 8:55 PM IST

    It seems like the heat is taking a toll on Taylor. He is tiring but New Zealand need him out in the middle. Six runs from the over. The tiring Taylor will face Chahal. I can sense something happening now… A wicket, maybe? Can India come back?

  • 8:48 PM IST

    Taylor gets into the act. Launches Bhuvi over umpire’s head for a boundary. There’s de Grandhomme, Nicholls and Santner to follow. It’s New Zealand’s game to lose now.

  • 8:44 PM IST

    The required rate has touched seven. This will be a crucial over from Bumrah. The angle there beats Latham’s edge. The next ball, Latham slaps it away for a boundary. The noisy Wankhede is going quiet. Kuldeep is warming up. Seven comes from it. So Kiwis are in the mark.

  • 8:40 PM IST

    Bowlers will try to injure this man ahead of Octobers…

  • 8:39 PM IST

    That’s the last thing that India need at the moment. Latham presents a lovely straight bat. Earlier this day, Manjrekar was mentioning about the ‘Gateway of India’. That’s what Chahal does at mid-off. The bowls finds the gap between his legs and it’s four. New Zealand are not letting the required rate get over 7. It’s a good approach. Seven from the over.

  • 8:35 PM IST

    It is Bumrah from the other end. He got the wicket of Munro. Five from the over. Now 91 from 78 balls. Bhuvi continues…

  • 8:30 PM IST

    Latham brings up his ninth ODI fifty. This may be the innings that defines him in this format. New Zealand too are building for the 2019 World Cup. Latham as the wicketkeeper and No.5 is the way to go, it seems. They have Glenn Philips as well. Bhuvi’s over goes — 0 4lb 2 1 1 and a huge shout for lbw. India do not review. NZ needs 96 from 14 overs.

  • 8:25 PM IST

    An uppish short from Taylor and then a play and a miss. Lose stroke. Latham must farm most strikes against Chahal. Taylor has a perennial weakness against leg-spin. Five from the over. These two have now batted for almost 18 overs. Kohli brings back Bhuvi. India need wickets.

  • 8:22 PM IST

    Pandya sneaking out with another good over. He beat Latham’s bat now. Two from the five balls. Delightful. Latham is such a joy to watch. He walks across and places it left of mid-on and a boundary. New Zealand have managed six from this over too.

  • 8:18 PM IST

    Taylor gets to his 38th ODI fifty. New Zealand need 116 from 100. They have seven wickets in hand.

  • 8:11 PM IST

    Too straight from Pandya and Taylor clips it for a boundary. Eight from the over. It’s drinks. The equation stands 120 needed from 108 balls.

  • 8:09 PM IST

    Mohandas tweets: “Highest winning total batting 2nd at Wankhede Stadium: 277/4 by India v SL in WC 2011 final! Target tonight: 281″

  • 8:03 PM IST

    New Zealand are neck and neck with India at the moment. India were 149 at this stage. Kiwis are a run behind. You ideally double up your 30-over score and if that happens, NZ are winnings. However, they need some quick runs because scoring over 8 at the death won’t be easy against Bhuvi and Bumrah.

    133 from 20 overs. Seven wickets in hand. T20? Possible?

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the first ODI between India and New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. I, Suvajit Mustafi, will keep you hooked even if the match becomes one-sided. However, the chances of you getting bored are remote, given the curator has dished out a delicious wicket for batters and bowlers alike.

This will be the first ODI between these teams at the venue. More importantly, this will be Virat Kohli’s 200th ODI, becoming the 13th Indian and 72nd overall to the milestone. Adding more to chapters of achievement, Kane Williamson needs 103 runs to surpass Craig McMillan (4,707). While doing so, he also will go past Martin Crowe (4,704). I’ll be giving this and more such statistical highlights in this post.

Kane Williamson has confirmed that dynamo Colin Munro will open with Martin Guptill, pushing Tom Latham down the order. On the other hand, Virat Kohli too confirmed his openers, as Ajinkya Rahane will continue being the backup.

Rohit Sharma mentioned that playing against Trent Boult will be a tough ask. Not to forget that the Mumbaikar has a tendency of falling against left-arm seamers. With the red-soil wicket assisting the new-ball bowlers, Rohit will have to be wary of the late in-dipper.
