Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya was also back with the team. India got off to a good start. Both Indian openers scored 60 runs for the first wicket. The opening stand was broken in the 13th over when Rohit Sharma got out to pacer Blair Tickner. It was the first ball of the over, and Rohit tried to hit the ball for a six. But Tickner bowled a slower one, which took the edge of the bat and blew up in the air. Daryl Mitchell completed the catch at the mid-on.

Rohit was the first man to get out for the hosts. He scored a 38-ball 34 runs, including two sixes and four boundaries. During his little inning, he scored 28 runs out of 34 from boundaries. Meanwhile, Rohit also broke the all-time record of former Indian World Cup-winning skipper MS Dhoni. He scored two sixes in the first ODI against New Zealand and has not hit the most sixes in India in the ODI format.

Earlier this game, MS Dhoni held this record with 123 ODI sixes in India, and Rohit was second with 122 sixes. Now, the Indian captain has smashed a total of 124 sixes in 50-over cricket on Indian soil. Sachin Tendulkar (71) and Yuvraj Singh (69) are the other two batters on this list. India is currently ranked fourth in the ODI rankings, and if they can beat New Zealand 3-0 in the series, they will become the top-ranked ODI team.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(C), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan(Wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj.
