2nd ODI: India hammer NZ by 90 runs, go 2-0 up
Mount Maunganui (New Zealand), Jan 26 (CRICKETNMORE): Maintaining their winning streak, a dominant India outclassed New Zealand by 90 runs in the second match of the five-game rubber at the Bay Oval here on Saturday to go 2-0 up in the series.
After the Indian openers -- Rohit Sharma (87) and Shikhar Dhawan (66) handed a solid start to the visiting side, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (4/45) starred with the leather to help India register a thumping win.
Chasing a challenging 325 for victory, the hosts suffered another batting collapse as most of their batsmen succumbed before a clinical Indian attack. The Indian bowlers struck at regular intervals, denying the Kiwi batsmen to build any big partnership.
Bowling all-rounder Doug Bracewell chipped in valuable 57 runs down the order however, it wasn't enough to help the Kiwis cross the line.
