… 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. Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur did trouble them towards the end but they got rid of both batters before they could inflict any more damage. Lockie Ferguson Mitchell Santner went wicketless today but bowled economical spells. Jacob Duffy and Blair Tickner accounted for three wickets each while Michael Bracewell finished with a wicket to his name.
This has been a solid fightback by New Zealand and they have done extremely well to keep India under 400. 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 innings and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The 54-run stand between Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur provided India with some much-needed impetus towards the back end of the innings. Despite failing to cross the 400-run mark, India have a challenging total on the board.
