Twitter Reactions: Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav star in India’s record win over New Zealand

India continued their domination over the hosts New Zealand, winning the second game on the trot to lead the five-match ODI series 2-0.

Putting on 324 after choosing to bat first, India had given the Kiwis 325-run target and the spinners did the rest as the hosts crumbled to a 90-run loss. This is India’s biggest win against the Blackcaps on New Zealand soil in terms of runs.

Rohit Sharma shined with the bat

With the ball swinging early on at the Bay Oval, Rohit Sharma rode his luck and was careful to start off with, slowly picking up his pace as the pitch settled down. He took on Lockie Ferguson for sixes in back-to-back overs before consecutive fours off Trent Boult further got him into groove. Just as the Indian vice-captain seemed set for a big one, Ferguson had him caught out with a short ball, 13 short of a ton.

Kuldeep Yadav bamboozled the Kiwi batsmen

Kuldeep Yadav, who had picked up four wickets in the first ODI, remained the star performer for India with the ball, as he once again took four wickets to clean up New Zealand’s middle order. The chinaman dismissed Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme and Ish Sodhi as the visitors bowled out the hosts for 234 in the 325-run chase.

Kuldeep finished with 4/45 in his full quota of 10 overs.
