New Zealand humiliate Kohli-less India in 4th ODI

While New Zealand had already lost the five-match ODI series 3-0, defeating India in the 4th ODI by such a huge margin and in such a fashion will nonetheless prove to be one heck of a consolation.

The Rohit Sharma-captained Indian team’s batting lineup failed miserably as Kiwi pacer Trent Boult claimed 5 wickets in a fiery, fiery spell (for which he got the Man of the Match award). Colin de Grandhomme took 3 wickets, and Todd Astle and James Neesham took a wicket each to skittle out the Men in Blue at a surprisingly low score of 92 runs, that saw Yuzvendra Chahal become the top-scorer with 18 runs.

In reply, New Zealand finished the game in just 14.4 overs, and won the match by 8 wickets. After the defeat, a disappointed Rohit Sharma said, “Never expected this to happen. (But) games like this happen…We’ve got ourselves to blame for this.”
