New Zealand v Bangladesh - Tri-Series: 5th T20

India and New Zealand are scheduled to lock horns in the second game of the three-match ODI series on Saturday, January 21. Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur will host the encounter.

India, led by Rohit Sharma, got off to a winning start in the series, but not before Michael Bracewell gave them an almighty scare. Bracewell smashed 140 runs off only 78 balls with the help of 12 fours and as many as 10 sixes. But the Black Caps lost by 12 runs while chasing 350.

After coming to bat after the fall of the fifth wicket, Bracewell stitched together an incredible 162-run partnership with Mitchell Santner, who also scored a half-century. He also hit the joint-fastest ODI hundred against India, equalling James Faulkner's and AB de Villiers' records.

But with 13 runs needed off five balls, Shardul Thakur trapped Bracewell in front to pull down the curtains on the match. After the match, Rohit Sharma conceded that India were feeling the heat when Bracewell was going all guns blazing.

For India, there were two big positives in the form of Shubman Gill and Mohammed Siraj. Gill became the fifth Indian to score a double hundred. Mohammed Siraj carried on from where he left off against Sri Lanka, picking up a four-wicket haul.
