On Thursday, New Zealand wrapped up India’s innings on 92 in the fourth ODI in Hamilton. Meanwhile, former England captain, Michael Vaughan was left surprised to see the scoreline. However, it was Trent Boult, who triggered a collapse, as he attained his best figures against India in the ODI cricket. In his ten overs, he bowled three maidens and picked five wickets for 21 runs. Alongside him, it was three scalps from Colin de Grandhomme which floored India. Meanwhile, Mark Waugh and Mitchell McClenaghan also commented on Vaughan’s tweet.
Michael Vaughan surprised over India’s batting
As Rohit Sharma-led India produced one of their worst batting performances in ODIs; Vaughan said he didn’t believe any side could get out 100 under these days.
Meanwhile, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl first. Both the teams made a few changes, as for India; Shubman Gill made his ODI debut while Khaleel Ahmed returned in place for Mohammed Shami. The opening pair of Rohit and Dhawan were beginning to hit top gear before Boult struck gold. He got India’s top three and later had Kedar and Pandya’s number as well. Though India was reeling at 40 for seven at one stage, they managed 52 more runs before falling apart.
“92 all out India … Can’t believe any team would get bowled out for under a 100 these days !!!!!!”

Meanwhile, Waugh said that’s what happens when two of the best batsmen (Virat and MS Dhoni) are absent from the teamsheet.
“See what happens when a team don’t have there best batsmen in.”

Moreover, Mitchell McClenaghan said the last instance he remembers when a side scored too low in ODIs was a total of 123.
“123 is the closest I can remember.”

The Kiwis win Hamilton ODI
New Zealand winning the game was there on the cards. Though Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson fell to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it was the pair of Taylor and Nicholls which helped NZ cross the winning line.
Also, the fifth and final ODI of the five-match series will be played in Wellington on Sunday (February 3rd).
