Dhoni and Kohli ride the segway: The Indian cricketers were seen riding the segway after the first ODI at Napier.
The Indian cricket team continued their winning momentum across the Tasman sea as they registered a comprehensive 8-wicket victory against New Zealand in the first ODI at Napier yesterday. The victory set the tone for the visitors for the full tour, which comprises of five ODIs and three T20Is.
While the hosts will be looking to stage a solid comeback in the second ODI at Mount Maunganui, India will look to take a brilliant 2-0 lead to put the Kiwis in a do-or-die situation on Monday at the same venue.
Among the positives for India were the individual bowling performances of fast bowler Mohammed Shami (6-2-19-3) and chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav (10-1-39-4). Shami winning the ‘Man of the Match’ award after nearly four years speak highly about his resurgence as an ODI bowler.
Lauding the efforts of his fast bowler who made early inroads in the first ODI during the post-match presentation ceremony, India captain Virat Kohli said that his belief in his own abilities is the key behind his recent success.
