IND vs NZ: When Trent Boult is on a song, he can deteriorate any batting line-up put in front of him. It was his day at the Seddon Park in Hamilton as his lethal swing bowling got the best of Indian top-order which meant they were bowled out for a paltry 92 in 30.5 overs.
The duo operated in tandem and shared 8 wickets between them, Boult ended up with his fifth 5-wicket haul in one-day cricket, while Colin de Grandhomme ended up with 3 for 26 in his quota of 10 overs. Skipper Kane Williamson did not have to look for any other alternatives as the two bowled out 20 of the 3o overs in the first innings.
