In a nail-biting opening one-day international encounter against New Zealand, Team India emerged victorious by a score of 12 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
After achieving his first career double century and leading Team India to a score of 349/8, Shubman Gill emerged as the standout performer for the home team.
Despite an incredible effort by Michael Bracewell, the visitors were only able to score 337 runs in the end because Mohammed Siraj kept up his red-hot form and took four wickets (140).
In light of the fact that the young bowler Umran Malik has been left out of the playing XI for the last two one-day internationals led by Rohit Sharma, there is a possibility that he would be selected for the second one-day international that will take place on Saturday against New Zealand.
Before being dismissed for 34 off 38 balls, Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian team, appeared to be in fine form as he forged a solid combination with Shubman Gill. In the second one-day international, Rohit will undoubtedly focus on achieving a high score.
Shubman Gill, a young player who opened the batting for his team, broke a number of records during the first one-day international after scoring his first double century and became the youngest player in the world to attain the milestone. In the second one-day international, all eyes are going to be on him.
The star batsman, Virat Kohli, responded to his detractors with a stupendous performance in the one-day internationals (ODIs) played against Sri Lanka. In spite of the fact that he was run out for 8 in the first one-day international match against New Zealand, he will want to make up for it in the second encounter.
Suryakumar Yadav, a hitter in his 32nd year, provided excellent support to Gill by playing a rapid knock of 31 runs off of 26 balls. In the past matches, he has demonstrated his real mettle, and he will undoubtedly be looking for a huge innings in this one as well.
Ishan Kishan: The wicketkeeper-batter was unable to make a mark in the first match against the New Zealanders as he was dismissed for 5. This came after Ishan Kishan was left off the playing XI for the one-day internationals against Sri Lanka, despite the fact that he had scored a double century against Bangladesh.
Hardik Pandya, an all-rounder, played in the first one-day international and scored 28 runs off of 38 balls. In addition, he took one wicket, but in his seven overs, he allowed 70 runs to be scored against him, so his performance was not particularly impressive.
Washington Sundar: The all-rounder scored 12 runs off of 14 balls after coming in as a substitution for Shreyas Iyer. However, the all-rounder did not take a wicket with the ball.
Shardul Thakur, the bowling all-rounder, was only able to score three runs with the bat, but he was successful in taking two wickets. The first one-day international economy he played in was a 7.40.
Kuldeep Yadav, the wrist-spinner, once again demonstrated his value to the side by taking two wickets and bowling a wicketless over. During his eight-over period, he only allowed 43 runs to be scored against him.
Mohammad Shami, an experienced pacer, took one wicket but allowed 69 runs to be scored off of his 10 overs. On the other hand, while he was attempting to catch the ball, he hurt his finger. There is a possibility that the management will relieve him of his duties and find Umran Malik to take his position for a while.
Mohammed Siraj, a 28-year-old speed bowler, took four wickets and thoroughly decimated New Zealand’s batting line-up. Siraj took four wickets. In one-day internationals (ODIs), Siraj has not yet achieved his first five-wicket haul.
