Hamilton: Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul played brilliant knocks of 103 and 88, respectively, to help India post 347/4 against New Zealand in the first ODI of the three-match series here at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday. After being put in to bat, India got off to a quickfire start as openers Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal put on 50 runs. Colin de Grandhomme finally provided the breakthrough to the Kiwis as he sent Shaw (20) back to the pavilion in the eighth over. Agarwal (32) was also dismissed soon after by Tim Southee and the Men in Blue were reduced to 54/2 in the ninth over. 

Skipper Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer then retrieved the innings for the visitors as the duo put on 102 runs for the third wicket. Kohli brought up his 58th half-century in the 28th over. Ish Sodhi got the crucial breakthrough of Kohli (51) in the 29th over as he clean bowled him to reduce India to 156/3. 

However, Iyer continued to march on and brought up his maiden ODI century in the 43rd over.KL Rahul, who came in to bat at number five provided the much-needed impetus to the innings. He along with Iyer put on a stand of 136 runs for the fourth wicket. Iyer (103) was finally sent back to the pavilion by Southee in the 46th over, reducing India to 292/4. In the final overs, Rahul and Kedar Jadhav hammered the Kiwi players to take India`s score past the 340-run mark. Jadhav remained unbeaten on 26.


The hosts are playing their first ODI since the World Cup final defeat at Lord’s whereas India recently bounced back to win a three-match series against Australia 2-1. The last time these two sides met in the 50-over format, New Zealand had knocked India out of the World Cup with an 18-run win over two days in the second semi-final at Manchester. Kohli's team had also beaten New Zealand 4-1 in ODIs last year before going down in T20s.

India XI: Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (W), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami.
