Napier: In the first One Day International between India and New Zealand at Napier this morning, the hosts won the toss and chose to bat first. They had a dismal start losing five wickets for 109 in 25 overs. Williamson and Santner are in the middle.
Earlier after winning the toss, WIlliamson chose to bat on a batting friendly wicket. Shami dismissed both the openers (Guptill and Munro). Chahal picked up two wickets. Ross Taylor made 24, Latham managed just 11 and Nicholls was out for 12.
Mohammed Shami Wednesday became the fastest Indian to claim 100 wickets in One-day Internationals, reaching the mark in the opening match against New Zealand.
This was his 56th game in the 50-over format. Shami’ wicket number 100 was New Zealand opener Martin Guptill, who played onto his stumps a delivery that moved in after pitching on a good length.
