HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Indian batsmen were all bagged at a total of 178 runs by the New Zealand bowlers
  • Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson scored half-centuries for their team and led it to victory
  • Other than Jadeja, only Hardik Pandya (30 runs) was able to cross 20 runs marks in the game

The first practice match displayed Indian teams lack performance and stability on the English pitches as they were crushed down by New Zealand by six wickets in their first World Cup practice match. It was not a good day for India in the field and the Newzies dominated them in every sector of the game. Indian batsmen could all together just put a total of 178 runs with Ravindra Jadeja being the highest scorer scoring 54 runs off the 50 balls he faced. Other than Jadeja, only Hardik Pandya (30 runs) was able to cross 20 runs marks in the game. All the New Zealand bowlers bowled extremely well and made it difficult for the Indians to score runs. As New Zealand came down for the chase, they at no point were put in trouble by the Indian bowlers. The skipper Kane Williamson (67 runs 84 balls) scored a brilliant half-century further made the target easy for New Zealand. He got brilliant support from Ross Taylor who too scored an excellent half-century scoring 71 runs off the 75 balls he faced. The only thing to cheer for India in the match was the bowling performance of Jaspreet Bumrah. Bumrah (4-2-2-1) bowled a brilliant small spell of 4 overs. He however after that was called back by the skipper Virat Kohli. This match must come as a wakeup call for India and they need to work out their problems of the English pitches as soon as possible if they have to keep alive their winning hopes in the World Cup starting from 30th May.
