Stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma's 200th ODI game and debutant Shubman Gill's special day was spoiled by Trent Boult and incurred a heavy defeat on India. Earlier in the day. Trent Boult wreaked havoc with the ball and his 5-wicket haul along with Colin de Grandhomme's 3-for bundled out India for 92 setting up an easy chase for the Kiwi batters.
There was nothing much the Indian bowlers could have done. Defending 92 in a 50 over game was always going to be an impossible task. However, Indians did have something to rejoice about as Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up two wickets.
On Twitter, fans and experts alike bashed the Indian batting which was missing two of it's biggest superstars in Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. Here are some of the hilarious reactions:
It was a walk in the park for the New Zealand batsmen in the second innings chasing an under par score of 93. Guptill started the innings with a six and followed that up with two consecutive boundaries. He was dismissed on the 4th ball of the first over. India got the wicket of Kane Williamson too, but it was just a mere consolation as Henry Nicholls and Ross Taylor did a professional job and finished off the game within 15 overs.
