This was the game that every cricket fan would love to pay for the tickets and enjoy the moment of the every delivery from the bowler and its response from the opposite side. India registered a marginally close but a sweet 6 run victory to clinch away the previously 1-1 tied series from the visitors Kiwis.
In response to India’s mammoth 337/6 in 50 overs on the scoreboard, the visitors managed to pull off a great show of cricket but lost by mere 6 runs of difference, thanks to the tight bowling from the wicket ends by Jasprit Bumrah & Chahal who managed to take 5 wickets alone which made the kiwis succumbed from time to time in their innings.
Previously Rohit Sharma scored a stunning century of 147 runs studded with 18 boundaries and 2 balls punished behind the ropes, Sharma got full support from the skipper who also scored his 32nd century. Kohli became the fastest player to reach the 9000 runs mark.
India has to now face the visitors for 3 T20 match series which would commence on 1st November at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.
