India's awesome powerplay, and one of New Zealand's worst

India's pace attack reduced New Zealand to 15 for 5 in the second ODI in Raipur

108 New Zealand's total in the second ODI in Raipur is their third lowest against India. New Zealand were bowled out for 79 in 2016 in Visakhapatnam and 103 in 2010 in Chennai.
15 for 5 New Zealand's lowest score at the fall of the fifth wicket in ODIs. Their previous lowest was 18 against Sri Lanka during the 2001 Coca-Cola Cup in Colombo. It is also the lowest score at which India have picked up the fifth wicket in a men's ODI. England's 26 for 5 at The Oval in 2022 was the previous lowest.
11 Total runs scored by New Zealand's top five - their joint lowest in a men's ODI. It was also the fewest runs aggregated by a team's top five in a men's ODI against India.
80 Percentage of balls pitched on a good length by India's pacers in the first ten overs. They bowled 48 good-length balls in the first powerplay, and all four wickets fell to such deliveries.
15 for 4 New Zealand's total at the end of the tenth over - their second lowest in the first ten overs of an ODI since 2001. Their lowest was 14 against Australia in Cairns last year. Fifteen is also the second-fewest runs that India have conceded in the first ten overs of an ODI since 2001. They had conceded 14 in the first ten overs against Sri Lanka in Dambulla in 2008.
