Rayudu and Vijay Shankar impressed with his game
New Zealand team did not play as expected at home
India was already ahead in the series, I decided to bat first in Rohit Sharma's first one-day match at Wellington. Like Hamilton, the Indian high-order batsmen were quickly dismissed by New Zealand fast bowlers. After that, India took a great comeback on the strength of their middle order and took care of the situation deteriorating.
Raidu is a talented batsman
Ambati Rayudu's performance in batting was good and he scored a magnificent score. He is a talented batsman as he proved in this match.
Vijay Shankar also played with amazing technique and had a good partnership with Raidu. India worked hard to succeed and played in accordance with a fixed plan.
New Zealand's performance was not according to their merit. He has disappointment on his performance. Especially his batting was weak, which should have been strong in domestic conditions.
