    NZ beat IND by 7 wicket

    New Zealand have beaten India in the first ODI by 7 wickets. Latham and Williamson have powered the Kiwis to a comfortable win with 17 balls to spare in Eden Park. With this win, they have taken a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series. India scored a decent score of 306, courtesy of knocks by Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar. Gill and Dhawan provided India with a strong platform but they fell in quick succession at the halfway stage. Pant and Suryakumar soon followed and India were in a spot of bother until Iyer and Samson snitched a crucial partnership, which was then followed by fireworks from Sundar. However, on the small ground, the target looked achievable and the Kiwis exactly showed that. Even though the openers fell, Williamson and Latham notched up a 221-run stand for the 4th wicket, which drew curtains for the Men in Blue. Latham smashed his 7th ODI hundred, which in fact is his highest ODI score. NZ skipper scored 94* as they chased 307. Umran Malik and Washington Sundar were good with the ball but India will need to regroup better for the next one to keep the series alive. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. See you on 27th Nov for the 2nd ODI. I Varun Malik, along with Jishu Bhattacharya signing off. Ta, ta
