Opener Tom Latham scored his fourth ODI hundred as New Zealand pulled off a stunning six-wicket win against India with an over remaining in the first one-day international on Sunday.
Latham hit an undefeated 103 off 102 balls and added 200 runs with Ross Taylor 95 for the fourth wicket. New Zealand ended on 2844 in 49 overs in the highest chase in ODI cricket by any team at this ground in Mumbai as the tourists took the lead 1-0 in the three-match series.
Chasing 281, Martin Guptill 32 and Colin Munro 28 provided a solid start, adding 48 runs for the first wicket. Jasprit Bumrah 156 provided the breakthrough as Munro mishit to cover and was caught.
Trent Boult (4/35) and Tim Southee (3/73) shared seven wickets, while Mitchell Santner (1/41) limited the hosts' scoring after India won the toss and opted to bat. Boult struck quick double blows early on and dismissed both openers Shikhar Dhawan (9) and Rohit Sharma (20), reducing India to 29/2.
Captain Virat Kohli showed his class with a gutsy 31st hundred in his 200th ODI in energy-sapping conditions to take India to 280 for 8 in 50 overs. None of the other Indian batsmen even crossed 40-run mark.
