India bat against New Zealand in first ODI

As global cricket returned to Wankhede with India taking on New Zealand in the 1st ODI of the three-match series, the Wankhede faithful got a glimpse of their hero once again as he walked out to bat.

After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said, "Looks a good wicket to bat on, to come out and bowl again with this humidity will make it a tough day".

While Kohli has had some regal knocks in the ODI format over the years, the energy sapping humidity and the slowness of the track made batting hard. It will be interesting to see whenever Axar Patel gets the game or not.

But Norfolk's labor force, the measurement of those who are able to work and are either employed or seeking jobs, fell to 25,820. The financial, construction and trade, transportation and utility sectors reported the most growth.

Kohli has led the "Men in Blue" in 40 matches so far winning 31 of them, which is the highest win percentage (77.50) of all the Indian captains in ODIs, with more than six matches in the job. The hosts, second in the ODI rankings, are expected to complement the two spinners with fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The right-handed batsman created another record with his ton. Besides skipper Virat Kohli, the Indian team will comprise, among others, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, M.S.Dhoni, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, George Worker.
