This early disaster was somewhat overcome but New Zealand were bowled out for 108 runs in 34.3 overs. India lost the run in 20.1 overs and lost 2 wickets. In total, Rohit’s team has won a record 7 bilateral ODI series in their own country. Before this series too, India had blown away Sri Lanka at home in all editions.
Impressed with India’s performance, Ramiz told Babar Azam on his YouTube channel to learn from India, ‘It is very difficult to beat India on their home soil. Other parties in the subcontinent, including Pakistan, can learn from them. Because, Pakistan team also has enough potential, but in terms of winning the series, the home field performance is not as consistent as the Indian team. This is an important milestone for India in a World Cup year.’
