1st ODI India vs New Zealand: It was Kuldeep Yadav’s turn to make his debut on Chahal TV. In the past, Chahal interviewed Kohli and then Kedar Jadhav on his channel, but it seems he had a ball while in conversation with his partner-in-crime Kuldeep Yadav. They spoke about the conditions in New Zealand, the feeling when they bowl in tandem and their success in overseas conditions.

“The pitch was good for batting hence I had to be careful with the areas I bowl. It was my first match and I think of wickets and it felt good to get wickets. The ball was skidding, hence one has to be careful with the variations. I feel good when I bowl in tandem with you. We were good in South Africa and England,” said Kuldeep on Chahal TV.

Earlier, India once again produced an all-round clinical effort in the white-ball format that has been synonymous in the recent past with the men in blue. In their first outing, Virat Kohli’s men crush New Zealand before a bizarre and unprecedented sun-induced interruption overshadowed the on-field action on Wednesday. Entering the five-match rubber following maiden Test and ODI series triumphs in Australia, Team India signaled their intent with a clinical display, which saw them chase down a revised target of 156 by eights wickets in 34.5 overs.
The Duckworth-Lewis method came into the picture for an interruption which was not caused by rain for the first time. On a near-perfect day, the only thing that didn’t go their way was the toss. But India made light of that by bowling out the home team for a paltry 157 in 38 overs. Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was the most successful bowler, returning figures of 4/39 in 10 overs, while seamer Mohammed Shami finished with an excellent 3/19 in six overs. There were also two wickets for leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
