Virat Kohli plays a shot during the ODI match against New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, on Sunday.

While Kohli has had some regal knocks in the ODI format over the years, the energy sapping humidity and the slowness of the track made batting hard.

Going into the first ODI against the Kiwis, India will once again bank on their strong batting form led by the skipper and the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

After Dinesh Karthik provided Virat Kohli with some much-added support with an impressive cameo of 37 for the 4th wicket, Dhoni carried on from where he left, settling well at the crease and looking set to finish the innings.

Boult lived up to his reputation and got the ball to swing and seam.

Boult then cleaned up Sharma in his next over, as he got the ball to come into the right-hander leaving India struggling at 29/2.
