IND vs NZ: Latham registers career-best knock in ODIs, Williamson gets his mojo back as New Zealand cruise to victory

  • With three wickets down for just 65 runs, Williamson and Latham had a big task to mix caution with aggression.
  • Latham took the onus on himself and started to attack from the word go. The southpaw started batting aggressively and did not allow India’s bowling attack to settle.
  • Latham struck at a strike rate 140 and took the game away from the Indians. Meanwhile, the Kiwi skipper was watchful and only started taking risks when he got his eye in.
  • Coming into the series, Williamson’s form was a cause of concern. The right-hand batter was also snubbed from SRH.
  • With questions being raised, the veteran player showed his class and got the job done with minimum fuss.
  • With this thumping win, New Zealand have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.
  • This was also New Zealand’s 13th successive win at home. They surpassed the previous record of 12 wins in December 2015.

What went wrong for India?
Indian bowlers failed to break through the defenses of Williamson and Latham. Barring Umran Malik, the rest of the bowlers could not be effective on the fact pitch in Aukland. Washington Sundar bowled tight line and lengths, but the wickets deserted him. India needs to quickly turn things around the second match will be played on November 27.
