Kohli, Pandya shine as India take 1-0 lead against Black Caps

ANI  |  Dharamsala (Himachal Pradesh) [India] 

Clinical performances from batting stalwart Virat Kohli and debutant Hardik Pandya with the ball helped defeat by six wickets in the first ODI of the five-match series here at the HPCA Stadium on Sunday.

Chasing a paltry 191, and Rohit Sharma got the off to a solid start with a 49-run first-wicket stand, and Kohli took over thereafter as the hosts registered their 455th victory in the 900th ODI with 101 balls remaining.

Kohli's unbeaten 81-ball 85 was full of trademark cover drives - the straight-bat punched variety as well as the wristy flat-bat. He brought up the winning runs with a cleanly struck six off Mitchell Santner.

Sent in to bat, the Black Caps would have been very disappointed with their batting performance, especially their top order, as they got bowled out with 37 balls still remaining in their innings.

Opting to bowl first, Singh took everyone by surprise by handing Pandya the new ball ahead of Jasprit Bumrah, but the all-rounder soon showed skipper may have taken this decision.

He got the price wicket of Martin Guptill in his very first over in the 50-overs format.

The match was all but won by the Men in Blue in the first 20 overs as the inexperienced bowling attack of reduced the visitors to 65/7.

Opener Tom Latham was the lone ranger for the Kiwis and he remained unbeaten on 79. He got good support from No. 10 batsman - Tim Southee (55), who recorded his maiden ODI fifty, also becoming the first batsman to score a half-century at ten.

Pandya and leggie Amit Mishra scalped three wickets apiece while Umesh Yadav chipped in with two wickets.

Pandya was adjudged Man of the Match for his match figures of 3-31.

"Getting a Man of the Match award on debut is something very special. I got to know during the team meeting that Kapil Dev made his Test debut on this day, getting the ODI cap from him is something that I will cherish in my life," an elated Pandya said after receiving the award.

The two sides will next face each other at the Feroz Shah Kotla in on October 20.
