As part of the three-match ODI series, the Indian team showed its batting ability in the final ODI against New Zealand in Indore. The openers Shubhaman Gill and Rohit Sharma burst with centuries and the tailenders also did well and India managed to score 385 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in the allotted overs. With this, New Zealand’s target is 386. After the Kiwis won the toss and chose to field, India started their batting innings with Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma. Gill (112 off 78 balls; 13 fours, 5 sixes) who came as openers.. Rohit (101 off 85 balls; 9 fours, 6 sixes) excelled with centuries.
But thanks to them, India’s score reached the 200 mark in just 24.1 overs at one stage. In this sequence, India seemed to score more than 450 runs. But the middle order that came after both of them got out was a complete failure. Kohli (35) did not mind this process. Hardik Pandya (54) who came at the end increased the runs with a half century. Along with Pandya, Shardul Thakur also made the score cross 350 with 25 runs. Thus India scored 385 runs for 9 wickets in 50 overs. Among the New Zealand bowlers, Duffy and Tickner took 3 wickets each. Bracewell also got a wicket.
A mighty batting display from #TeamIndia! 💪 💪

Rohit who showed the universe
Rohit Sharma is not only in good form this year but is batting hard. But Rohit is failing to make huge scores. Cricket fans are waiting to see Rohit’s century in this sequence. Rohit ended the long wait of the fans. Rohit, who last scored a century in ODIs on January 19, 2020, could not repeat that feat again. In this sequence, after a three-year wait, Rohit again shone with a century in ODIs. With this, team India fans are expressing happiness along with his fans.
