Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni Power India to Easy Win vs New Zealand

Monday, 24 October 2016 - 7:34


Virat Kohli produced another breathtaking effort as his superbly crafted unbeaten 154 enabled India to cruise to an easy seven-wicket victory in the third ODI against New Zealand yesterday.

India thus lead the five-match series 2-1.

Kohli's 134-ball knock was ably complemented by an under-pressure skipper Dhoni as the duo forged a 151-run partnership off 163 balls to effectively seal the match with 10 balls to spare after the home team made a shaky start in their pursuit of 286.

Dhoni for one promoted himself up the order after much deliberation and it did yield results.
