IND vs NZ 1st ODI Highlights: Shreyas Iyer slams maiden century

IND vs NZ 1st ODI, India vs New Zealand Highlights: New Zealand won the first ODI by four wickets to go 1-0 up in the series on Wednesday. Chasing a massive target of 348, the Kiwis were in cruise control through most of the match but did suffer a scare towards the end when they lost 3 wickets in the space of 4 overs. But Ross Taylor (unbeaten on 109) kept a calm head to guide them home. NZ’s highest winning total is 350/9 v Australia (346) at Hamilton in 2007. Today NZ scored 348/6 v India (347). So a lower total but the highest total successfully chased.

Earlier, Shreyas Iyer hit his maiden century while KL Rahul and skipper Virat Kohli carried on their fine form as India dished out a clinical batting effort to post 347 for four against New Zealand in the first ODI in Hamilton on Wednesday. Iyer showed why he is considered as the next big thing in Indian cricket, scoring 103 off 107 balls, his first ODI ton. Rahul continued his purple patch, smashing unbeaten 88 off 64 balls while Kohli made 51 off 63 deliveries. Iyer’s knock was laced with 11 fours and a six and together with Rahul shared 136 runs for the fourth wicket as India scored 96 runs in the last 10 overs after being sent into bat.
