New Zealand's problems against India's spinners, as they slipped to a 90-run defeat. Set 325, the spinners accounted for seven wickets, with Kuldeep Yadav picking four, as the hosts folded for 234.

Lack of partnerships from the beginning, injured, new Zealand, as they came back with a sub-par performance. Once a par total, new Zealand needed a brisk start, but both Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled tight lines and didn't allow the new Zealand opener, get cracking. Martin Guptill has been dropped, once, survived a run-out probability, saw an outside edge falling short of the first slip, before he ramped a short delivery to the third man off Bhuvneshwar in the fifth over.

Kane Williamson, he immediately got but with Colin Munro struggling to have any kind of rhythm, he was forced to go hard sooner than he wanted. Williamson's innings was aggressive, the kind of knock that takes the game away from the opposition in real quick time. Unfortunately for new Zealand, he did not last long. In the eighth over, he 6, 6, 4, 2, and then was chopped to give wide of Shami India the boost. New Zealand had lost cantered business the last 50 but that was their main weapon.

By the time the spinners came in and applied the choke, new Zealand, were already playing catch-up. Yuzvendra Chahal caught Munro, Kedar Jadhav had Ross Taylor stumped, while Kuldeep Yadav Tom Latham lbw. With their middle-order, knocked even before the 25-over mark Henry Nicholls and the lower-order left too much to do.

Nicholls liked want to gain some quick runs, while Colin de Grand Homme is a slog was caught at the border. Doug Bracewell scored his first ODI half-century and the team took the last 200, but had the match slipping away from the hosts when they lost their middle-order early.

Earlier in the day, in India overall, the can-opener. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan you read the terms and conditions quickly, was difficult to put out early to new Zealand under pressure, and a 154-run stand set line-up. Both openers, however, had their fare share of close to shaved early but still fast. The first five overs yielded 27 and the tone was set. India cantered business to 100 in 18 raised more than Rohit his half-century. Dhawan also ends the true but both batsman missed an opportunity to kick on and bag centuries.

New Zealand has made a comeback, after accounting for both openers in quick succession, but Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu worked for half a century to take a stand, the team to the front. Once Kohli was 43, MS Dhoni and Rayudu dismissed fought to give the recordings of the late kick-off. Rayudu of the innings and effort again came under the control of Dhoni glossed over his innings with some late fireworks.

Rayudu was 29 from 24 at one stage and was able to manage just 18-the next 25 balls. Between the overs 40-45, India, only 29 scored 173 for 2 in the 30-over mark. This period was where new Zealand pulled things back, when India were eyeing a total North of 350. Once Rayudu was dismissed Jadhav, the innings finished with 22 and 10. India picked up 35 runs to push in the last two overs, a total of over 320 but the Spinner ensured new Zealand never came close to really.

50 for Doug Bracewell ..., his first in ODIs. New Zealand control more frustration India.

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan hit half help centuries to the Indian post 324 for 4. The platform was set after the opener scored 154 but both batsman, a good opportunity missed to kick and bag centuries. On a route with nothing for the launcher, and a field player, too bad the billiard-table, Virat Kohli decided to bat in the hope that the art of posting practice. The opener has built her work and India, a solid platform, but not as a cash the late thurst came a touch too late and held the side to a par total.

Both Rohit and Dhawan had a few close shaves in the early innings where the inside edge flew past the stumps - but the team has a solid start. The knowledge of the bowlers need to mitigate the impact of additional conditions, both openers took risks relatively early and the move paid off. The New Zealand bowlers on were constantly put under pressure, with regular limits such as the 50-run stand was raised in the ninth.

They only laid on it, and from there to India cantered business last 100 the reached over 18 with Rohit his half-century from 62 deliveries. To turn, have run out of options, Kane Williamson was forced, Trent Boult relatively early that he would have liked. S second spell Boult ', however, immediately made the breakthrough. Dhawan, chasing a wide, was caught behind, as he with the thick edges a short delivery time. Kohli is still relatively easy, but the wicket sucked the dynamics of Rohit of the innings. He saw scratchy soon after the loss of his partner, and finally fell to Lockie Ferguson lobbing a simple lock to square leg, trying to pull a short one.

At 172 for 2, new Zealand were immediately in the process, and had successfully managed to slow things down a touch. Kohli and Ambati Rayudu worked together to score a half-century stand, before India captain fell victim to a Boult short delivery times. Rayudu, the impossibility of the late thurst meant India were not able to fully use the platform, around the 30-over mark, where they were 173 for 2. Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav, however, some recovery in the last two rounds as they picked up 35 runs.

BIG WICKET: Kohli falls to Boult. The upper edge and began easily to fine leg, Ish Sodhi. To go just a little more than 10 overs. India need a big flourish.

50-RUN STAND: Kohli and Rayudu have now picked up a run-a-ball half-century. Keep India on the track for a large sum, but the hope for a large to flourish in the last ten overs.

200 for India in the 35th over ...

NO CENTURY FOR ROHIT: He falls for 87, and this is a very timely wicket for new Zealand. A short ball from Ferguson and Rohit has pulled it straight to square-leg. Things had slowed down just a bit after Dhawan's dismissal and expect you to slow it down even more. New Zealand right back in the game and much will depend on Kohli now.

FIRST WICKET: Dhawan will be kicking themselves. Short and wide, he went for the cut and got a thick edge. Latham takes the catch, and Boult gets the first wicket. The 154-run stand comes to an end but you have missed to say the opener.Century.

150 TO: We are not even at the mid-term and India are already looking at a profit of at least 350.

50 FOR DHAWAN: India cruising at the moment. Two boundaries in the 21st over, and Dhawan gets to his half-century.

100 TO: Rohit gets to his half-century with a six, and the can opener have a century also. 18 overs gone, and these two points, to keep a brisk pace, the hosts under pressure. You have to wonder what a safe score is here.

POWERPLAY MADE: Well then, the platform is set, after the first 10 overs. 57 on the board and no wickets lost. New Zealand bowlers look under pressure, but a goal could slow things down for a while.

STABLE: Both Dhawan and Rohit have a few close shaves, but India have 27 on the Board in the first five overs. A good batting track and India need a big score.

To open well then, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, the New Zealand players, the also. Ready for fireworks?

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the second ODI between new Zealand and India. Since Kuldeep Yadav in his first ODI match played in June 2017, the chinaman bowler has been a prolific wicket-taker - currently the table toppers among those with the most wickets since his debut. Four of the top five in the list are a wrist Spinner with Kuldeep and colleagues spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the top two positions, is another proof of how the leg-spin revolution has taken over the limited-overs format.

New Zealand were at the receiving Kuldeep-Chahal show in the first ODI at the end and ended up with a sub-par overall, to make life easier for the Indian batsman. Apart from Kane Williamson, the force also threw a good start in his attempt to up the pace against the spinners - none of the new Zealand middle-order batsman appeared comfortable against the spin duo. What allowed the spinners to dominate the way they did was the platform of Mohammed Shami, with his accurate line and length accounted for early wickets.

After a batsman-dominated series against Sri Lanka, new Zealand were expected to continue in the same way against India. But the gap in the two oppositions' bowling line-ups, this shows how the Indian bowlers ran away with the game and rolled the hosts for 157, which should serve as a good wake-up call for new Zealand. "Your whole bowling unit, wore well, and they need credit for that," Williamson had said after the game. It is now to find his stroke, they come out of this mess out and come up with a plan to address the quality of the Indian attack.

Most of it went right for India in the opening game - Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have a strong pace attack, despite the absence of Jasprit Bumrah to do the wrist Spinner, what was expected of them, and also the fifth and sixth bowling form options in Vijay Shankar and Kedar Jadhav to keep it clean. As far as the batting was concerned, it was a welcome return to form for Shikhar Dhawan while Virat Kohli ' s seemed to be batting on auto-pilot-mode, until he for the 45. Although Rohit Sharma is still not exceeded fifty in his last three trips, India felt that it is only a matter of time, as the right-handed opener has managed at least a century in each of his last ten ODI series. It would not be but India, some of good, if they improve their fielding and catching them, which was quite in his best Form in the first game.
