First ODI: Record breaker!!!

The first ODI ended in a very unfamiliar way for the Indian fans. In the recent times watching India lose that too with such ease is really very uncommon. But all the credit certainly goes to the Black-Caps for their excellent chase. During this match, a lot of records were created and shattered and here’s the list of the records:

  • Virat Kohli has only one unbeaten century in the first innings of an ODI, out of 12. However, at the same time, he has a mind-boggling 12 not-out hundreds in the second innings, out of 19.
  •  This match is the first instance of India losing an ODI at home despite a Virat Kohli century.
  •  Kohli became the second player after RCB teammate AB de Villiers to score a century in his 200th ODI appearance.
  •  Kohli has now the second most number of centuries (31) in ODI cricket as he surpassed Ricky Ponting’s tally of 30 hundred with this knock. Only Sachin Tendulkar has more ODI centuries than him now (49).
  •  Latham is just the second NZ player to score a century while chasing in India in ODI matches.
  • The 121-run knock from Kohli is the fourth biggest at the Wankhede. Only Sanath Jayasuriya, Faf du Plessis, and Mark Waugh have played bigger knocks there.
  • Virat Kohli now has 19 centuries as a captain in international matches, as many as Brian Lara and Michael Clarke. Only Ricky Ponting and Graeme Smith have more.
  • Ross Taylor has been involved in the second most century-stands (32) among NZ cricketers. Only Nathan Astle has been involved in more (36).
  • The legendary partnership between Taylor and Latham was the highest by a New Zealand pair against India. Previous best was a 1880-run stand between Scott Styris and Ross Taylor.
  • The Indian skipper became the fastest batsmen to 1000 ODI runs against New Zealand. He took 17 matches to surpass the mark.
