The Big Picture

India registered a comfortable eight-wicket win over the Black Caps at Napier to take a 1-0 lead in the 5-match series.

The win was spearheaded by the Indian bowlers- led by Mohammad Shami's spell of 3-19 and spin duo of Chahal and Kuldeep, who claimed six wickets between them to bundle the Kiwis out for 157 in 38 overs. Kane Williamson, with an 81-ball-64, was the lone shining light for the home side.

Chasing 158 on a placid Napier wicket was never going to be a problem for the Indians, and Shikhar Dhawan, with his unbeaten 75, ensured the Men in Blue coasted home in 34.5 overs.

Here are all the numbers from India's win at Napier:-

2nd- New Zealand crumbled to 157 in 38 overs at Napier. This was the second-lowest total that the Kiwis had registered against India in New Zealand.

6th- Overall, Shami became the sixth fastest overall to complete 100 wickets in One-day cricket.

3rd- Shikhar Dhawan registered his first half-century in ten innings at Napier. During his unbeaten knock of 75, Dhawan became the 2nd fastest Indian to complete 5,000 ODI runs.
