New Zealand registered a 24-run win over the visitors in the first ODI played on January 19. The hosts had set a target of 293 for India to chase in 50 over's.

Kane Williamson (71), Ross Taylor (55) and Corey Anderson (68) all hit half-centuries for the Black Caps, with the latter remaining unbeaten by the end of their innings.

Mohammed Shami was the star bowler for India taking four wickets, while Ishant Sharma's selection proved too costly as he conceded 72 runs in just nine over's bowled.

However, India's openers could not wave their magic wand as Rohit Sharma departed for just three runs. Virat Kohli took the burden of lifting his team to victory on his own shoulders as he scored 123 in 111 balls.

But his century was inadequate as one by one all the batsmen followed the trail back to pavilion. Skipper MS Dhoni was the second highest scorer for the visitors with 40 runs.

The Indian innings came to a halt in the 49th over as they ran out of wickets. Dhoni's men could only manage 268 runs on the board thus suffering their first set-back in the five-game ODI series.

Mitchell McClenaghan was the star bowler for the hosts, despite conceding 68 runs in 10 overs. The left-handed bowler snapped up four wickets including the crucial wicket of Kohli and the rival skipper.
