India pacer Shardul Thakur sends down a brilliant yorker to take the decisive wicket of Michael Bracewell and seal the win against New Zealand in the first ODI at Hyderabad.

Bracewell had come up with a superb knock of  140 runs off 78 balls as New Zealand chased India’s massive total of 349.

His fightback almost took New Zealand to what could have been an extraordinary wins against the odds. However, Shardul bowled an uplayable yorker to end his valiant innings and take India to victory by 12 runs.

Shubman Gill stood out in the Indian innings with stunning double century in 149 balls, embellished with 19 fours and nine sixes.
