295/10(41.2 Overs)

We are back for the chase.

... THE RUN CHASE ...

Right then, New Zealand will be pleased with the way they fought back with the ball towards the latter half. The onus is now on their batters to bat well and chase down this total. On the other hand, India would not be that disappointed with his total but their bowlers now have a task on their hands to defend this total. Will the Indian bowlers rise to the challenge? We will find out shortly. Back in a bit for the chase...

Despite Tom Latham calling it right and choosing to bowl first, the Kiwi bowlers failed to start well with the ball allowing India to get off to a flyer. The visitors kept bowling loose deliveries and were blown away by the onslaught of the Indian openers. However, once they broke the opening stand, they clawed their way back into the game during the last 20 overs of their bowling effort. They kept chipping in with wickets at regular intervals and did not allow India to gather any momentum. Ha

At one stage, India were on course to post a total in excess of 400 but they end up with 385 on the board. Having been sent into bat first, India were off to a flying start courtesy of their openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. Both batters notched up their respective hundreds and stitched a 212-run opening stand. However, once this partnership was broken, India lost their way in the i
