No Kohli, and no celebration for Team India which looked dominant across all formats. Team India faced a humiliating defeat against New Zealand in the 4th ODI.
India were keen to win the 4th ODI against New Zealand and extend the lead to 4-0 here at the Seddon Park on Thursday (January 31), under stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma, who will be playing his 200th ODI. But it all went horribly wrong for India as they were bundled out for 92. Trent Boult was wrecker-in-chief as he took five wickets for 21 runs.
The home side then chased the target with ease to emerge an eight-wicket winner. It will be a memorable day for another young cricketer, Shubman Gill, star of India’s triumphant run in the ICC Under-19 World Cup last year in the same country, as he will be making his ODI debut this day. He received the cap from former skipper MS Dhoni. Gill has come to the team in place of Virat Kohli, who has been given rest for the remainder of the tour.
