quicker ball bowled full on the off stump, driven down to long-off
A comfortable victory for India. The only time it seemed New Zealand stood a chance of overhauling their score was when Taylor and Guptill added 58 for the third wicket. The rain interruption really hurt the hosts as they were left with over a 100 to get in less than eight overs. Harbhajan, in particular, had a superb time, taking three wickets in four balls to complete a comprehensive win for the visitors, who go up 1-0 in this five-match series. Stay tuned as we'll bring you some bites from the presentation.
Vettori: "Disappointing result and some serious lack of execution cost us. We bowled pretty poorly and Raina's innings, in particular, took the game away from us. We put ourselves in a difficult situation while batting second and the revised target was never within reach."
Dhoni: "The important thing was to get a good start, and when you manage that you'll often end up setting a good enough target for the bowlers to defend. Raina batted really well, and so did Sehwag. There were times in the Twenty20 games when we went all guns blazing and lost too many wickets doing so, but our overall approach has been very good. Praveen Kumar bowled well too, he's a street smart cricketer, has some good variations and bowls according to the conditions."
Dhoni has been handed the Man-of-the Match award for his unbeaten 84. That's all from here folks, thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Join us for the second ODI in Wellington on the 6th. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us here at Cricinfo.
