Taking a 2-0 lead in the five-match series, the Indian cricket team was eager to seal the deal as they took the field against New Zealand at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui in the 3rd One-Day International (ODI) on 28th January. Expected to make a strong comeback in a bid to stay alive in the series, the Kiwis, once again, stuttered as the Virat Kohli-led India romped their way to another clinical win. After deciding to bat first, the hosts lost their top three early on before Ross Taylor and Tom Latham stepped up to the task with a pivotal 119-run partnership for the fourth wicket. But, the Kiwis couldn't capitalise on that partnership as they continued to lose wickets before being bundled out for a mediocre 243-run total. © Twitter/@BCCI In reply, Rohit Sharma (62) and Kohli (60) added 113 runs for the second wicket after the early dismissal of Shikhar Dhawan (28). While both Rohit and Kohli missed out on an opportunity to bag a hundred, a 77-run partnership between Dinesh Karthik (38*) and Ambati Rayudu (40*) got the visitors over the line with seven wickets and 42 balls to spare. A great bowling performance, backed by responsible batting, paved another win for the Indian side. While the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal all claimed a brace, it was undoubtedly Mohammed Shami whose influential figures of 3-41 were crucial in India's win. For someone who was adjudged the 'Man of the Match' in the first ODI, it wasn't surprising to see Shami claiming the honours in the third game as well. And after his majestic bowling earned him plaudits, Shami's communication skills in English won over Simon Doull at the presentation. Shami surprises Simon Doull by speaking in English who responds in Hindi "your English bahut achha (very good)" #IndvNZ pic.twitter.com/F9p9GDH0Ez — Navjot Piddu (@DesiFamilyGuy) January 28, 2019 Unlike the first match in Napier, where he had Kohli for company who translated the questions for his teammate, Shami decided to go solo this time around and gave his best shot at answering Simon Doull's queries at the presentation ceremony. "It's really difficult to bowl against the wind. One comes with the wind and the other is against the wind. It is difficult but not too hard. Bhuvi at the other end was also a great help. Sticking to areas where we want to bowl is the key," Shami said. Doull, the former New Zealand fast bowler who was conducting the presentation ceremony, was so impressed with Shami's effort that he complimented him in Hindi after the interview. "Your English bahut acha, congratulations," Doull told Shami as Kohli burst out laughing.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsDuring the first of five ODI series between India and New Zealand, the Kiwis found themselves to be struggling early to find steady ground to tread on as an opener and all-time great Martin Guptill was stunned by Indian bowler Mohammed Shami in his first over. Fresh after a rewarding tour Down Under, where Shami proved to be extremely efficient as the fourth best bowler during both the Test and ODI series, Shami looked hungry for wickets as he came in on the attack and succeeded in registering his first scalp of the day by bowling out Guptill with an in-swing. 100 ODI wickets and counting for @MdShami11 ðð#TeamIndia #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/3RVvthg1CH — BCCI (@BCCI) January 23, 2019 With this wicket, Shami broke Irfan Pathan's record to become the fastest Indian bowler to take 100 One Day International wickets. While Pathan achieved this feat in 59 matches, Shami reached the landmark in 56 ODIs. Along with the two pacers, Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar and Javagal Srinath make the list of the five fastest Indian bowlers to take 100 ODI wickets who did it in 65, 67 and 68 ODIs respectively. In the international scenario, Shami ranks sixth overall, tied with his current competitor, Kiwi Trent Boult while 2018's Afghani sensation, Rashid Khan leads the list, who required only 44 ODIs to establish the record. Shami went on to bag two more wickets of the second opener Colin Munro and Mitchell Santner as New Zealand were all out for a meagre total of 157 runs. Innings Break!
