The 5th ODI played between India vs New Zealand, has become quite interesting as New Zealand have been crushed by the Indian bowling attack at a mere 103 runs only. New Zealand could just crawl past the three figure mark at the Chennai ground, as the Indian bowlers managed to smack their wickets at regular intervals.
As the Indian innings began, Kohli and Gambhir, India’s top batsmen for now, had been sent back to the pavilion early with only 10 runs on the board. Later Yuvraj Singh and Parthiv Patel managed to bring India back on track an stabilized the innings. Before New Zealand could inflict any serious damage on India, Yuvraj and Patel managed to keep India floating in the game.
India will be looking to win this match impressively and it will also result to a first ever white wash against New Zealand. India have performed quite well in the series, as this could also be said, as the first step towards an exciting World Cup 2011.
