New Zealand made a sensational comeback during their ongoing World Cup 2023 game against India at Dharamsala's HPCA Stadium on Sunday, October 22. Indian bowlers quickly took control of the game with two early wickets while bowling first but a record-breaking stand from Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell put the Kiwis on track for a big total.

Both India and New Zealand entered the game unbeaten in this tournament and produced an impressive display for the top-spot clash. Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami shone early with openers Devon Conway and Will Young's valuable wickets but were not able to keep the Black Caps under pressure.

Rachin Ravindra continued his dream run with another fifty while Daryl remained unbeaten in the crease with another brilliant knock. The duo added 159 runs for the third wicket to break a 36-year-old record for the highest partnership in India-New Zealand World Cup matches.

Legendary Indian opener Sunil Gavaskar and veteran batter Kris Srikkanth previously held the record for the highest partnership for any wicket during India-New Zealand World Cup games. They recorded 136 runs stand for the opening wicket against Kiwis in Nagpur during the 1987 edition of the tournament to guide India to a huge nine-wicket win.
