Team India achieved a thrilling victory by 12 runs in the first ODI between New Zealand at the Hyderabad venue. Batting first, India scored 349 runs for the loss of 8 wickets.. Kiwis were bowled out for 337 runs in 49.2 overs. In Team India, Subhaman Gill exploded with a double century and Michael Bracewell (140 off 78 balls) fought to the end with a huge century. But team India bowlers especially Hyderabadi pacer Mohammad Siraj bowled brilliantly and team India won by 12 runs. Meanwhile, Siraj damaged the Kiwis who entered the ring with a huge target. Devon Conway (10) was added to the pavilion and once again showed his sharpness in the power play. Another opener, Finn Allen (40), was dismissed by Shardul Thakur and the Kiwis lost the wickets of the openers for 70 runs. Kuldeep Yadav also bowled Henry Nicholls (18) and Darrell Mitchell (9) with his spinning balls. Glenn Phillips and Darrell Mitchell were also dismissed soon after.. New Zealand lost six wickets for 131 runs. With this, the Indian team felt that it was a walk on the blacks.
But for Braswell, Mitchell Santner (57 off 45 balls) put on a 162-run partnership for the seventh wicket. Especially Braswell, who scored a century in just 57 balls, troubled the Indian bowlers. With this, Kiwis need 65 runs in the last 6 overs to win. Looking at Bracewell and Santner’s strength, it seemed that the Indian team was going to be disturbed. At this stage once again Mohammad Siraj received the ball. The Hyderabadi bowler bowled Shipley the very next ball after sending Santner to the pavilion, who was stuck at the crease. With this, India is back in the race. Siraj, who played his first one-day match in front of his own audience in Hyderabad, scored 46 runs in 10 overs and took 4 wickets. There are also 2 maidens in it. The match was attended by his mother and family members. Photos related to this are also going viral on social media.
