India clinched the first ODI in Napier convincingly, thanks to a Shikhar Dhawan masterclass. Now the entire Indian set-up is headed to Mount Maunganui, eyeing a 2-0 lead in the five-match One-day International series versus New Zealand. In Napier, the New Zealand batsmen looked all at sea against India's spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in their own backyard following a fiery spell from pacer Mohammad Shami. The hosts seemed rusty against a team coming off a historic tour of Australia and know beating an in-form India will be steep climb at the Bay Oval. Before the sun stopped play for more than 30 minutes in the series-opener, the Indian bowlers made merry with Kuldeep and Chahal sharing six wickets. The two wrist-spinners usually hunt in a pack and would be itching to have another go at the Black Caps. India are yet to finalise their middle-order ahead of the World Cup but are unlikely to tinker much with the playing eleven after just one game.
