World Cup 2023: India wins with 4 wickets against New Zealand
Jadeja hits the winning runs by hitting four off Matt Henry. With this win, Team India make it 5 out of 5 and goes top of the points table. This is India's first win against the Kiwis since the 2003 ODI Cricket World Cup. The crowd goes berserk here in Dharmsala. Once again, Virat Kohli shows why he is the best in business when it comes to chasing.
The standout feature of their innings was the formidable partnership of 159 runs between Ravindra and Mitchell for the third wicket. Beyond that, the Kiwi lineup struggled to gain momentum. India made an impressive start by dismissing the openers early, with Bumrah and Siraj demonstrating pinpoint accuracy. However, a critical turning point occurred when Ravindra was dropped by Jadeja, and he capitalized by showcasing adept batting against both spin and pace. Mitchell emerged as New Zealand's mainstay, amassing an exceptional 130 runs.
Meanwhile, Shami's inclusion in the Indian bowling attack yielded a five-wicket haul, while Bumrah and Siraj maintained tight control. The middle overs witnessed some resistance from Ravindra and Mitchell, as they took on the spinners. The innings underwent various phases, progressing from 19 for 2 to 178 for 3 before concluding at 273 all-out.
