in terms of overs faced --- for
New Zealand in ODI cricket
where they have been bowled
out. It was also the highest mar-

terms of runs.
Earlier, India opted to bat first
and scored 269-6.

70 runs, including five fours and
three sixes, with Virat Kohli hit-

Dhoni (41) then came to the
crease and added 71 runs for the
third wicket with Kohli.

return chance from Kohli on 8

44th over as Kohli was caught
in the deep off Sodhi. Kedar Jad-

then put on 46 runs off 39 balls,
and helped India past the 250-
mark in the 49th over.
