India vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Considering it is India, both skippers Virat Kohli and his Kiwi counterpart Kane Williamson will be looking to their spinners for breakthroughs.

New Zealand batsmen on Sunday showed clinical efficiency in a tricky chase to spoil Virat Kohli’s 200th match with a comfortable six-wicket victory over India in the opening One day International. Tom Latham (103 no) and Ross Taylor (95) put up strong show with bat while chasing down a target of 281 in 49 overs with minimum fuss. New Zealand lead three-match series 1-0. Earlier, Virat Kohli showed his masterclass with a gutsy 31st hundred in his 200th ODI in energy-sapping conditions to take India to 280 for 8 in 50 overs. None of the other Indian batsmen even crossed 40-run mark.
Taylor and Latham, who came at somewhat same time at 80 for 3, made a 200-run stand for the fourth wicket. Taylor, who has has been a regular feature in the IPL over the years faced 100 balls hitting eight boundaries. On the other hand, Latham — the only successful Kiwi batsman during their last tour, hit eight fours and two sixes in 102 deliveries scoring his fourth ODI hundred. The Indian bowling attack completely failed to make a mark once Taylor and Latham started their partnership.
