New Zealand beat India by six runs despite Pandya Heroics (New Zealand, Other Countries)

Latest Sport News » : After his match-winning debut with the ball in the 1st ODI of the India v New Zealand series, Hardik Pandya stepped up with the bat scoring vital 36 runs in the slog overs taking India close to the target of 243, but India fell agonising short by six runs as New Zealand won the 2nd ODI at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi on Thursday and levelled the five match series 1-1 with three more matches to go. Chasing a target of 243, India found themselves tottering at 184 for 8 after the 41st over, before Pandya and tailender Umesh Yadav joined forces combining for a 49-run stand for the ninth wicket. The New Zealand bowling attack, otherwise disciplined, wilted under pressure even as Pandya and Umesh soaked in immense pressure as they knocked the ball around, found gaps, converted ones in twos and managed to find that odd boundary. But the experience of Trent Boult and Tim Southee came through in tough time as they bowled marvellously well to deny India and take New Zealand to their first ever win at Kotla.
