Rohit Sharma (87) missed out on a chance to hit his first one-day hundred in New Zealand but India still managed a challenging 324 for 4 with all the batsmen coming good in the second ODI on Saturday. Shikhar Dhawan (66) also struck a half-century while captain Virat Kohli (43), Ambati Rayudu (47) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (48 not out) chipped in with significant scores as the vaunted Indian batsmen dominated the home bowlers after the visitors opted to bat. Rohit and Dhawan gave India a flying start with a 154-run opening stand from 25.2 overs during which the New Zealand bowlers were hit all over the park. Dhawan was the first to go as he reached out to a short and wide delivery from Trent Boult (2/61) only to thick-edged it to wicketkeeper Tom Latham in the 26th over. The men in blue will look to build on their winning momentum while hosts will aim to level the ongoing series when the sides meet at the Bay Oval.
