New Zealand

That's all we have for you from commentary, thanks for your company and goodnight.

Tom Latham is Man of the Match. "All good," he says. "Pretty humid out there,

keeping 50 overs and batting all that time, it was tough. Conditions are completely different than back home. Whatever suits the team. At the moment, its No. 5, it's up for grabs and it was nice to contribute today. Something I had been working on, just didn't have the confidence to play the reverse sweep so early in the game. The biggest thing in a partnership is communication, we were talking every over, hats off to him, playing such a great innings. He was a calming influence on me."

"Brilliant performance. The tone we set was good at the start of the innings. It was a briliant performance from Virat, happening every time he walks out to the crease. But we stuck at it and it was one of the greatest chases I've seen, certainly in my time as a Black Cap," Kane Williamson says, "Short ball, we tried it a lot, would have been nicer if a few balls had gone to hand. But I have to go back to that partnership - Tom and Ross controlled the innings perfectly through the middle overs. You know over here that you take the game deep. It was something we wanted to do. Even with a few more batsmen in the shed, they had to finish it off. The weather was very challenging. We've been here two weeks, you can't really get used to it, but we got on with it. Stuck to the task well and in all facets"

9.45 pm Virat Kohli gets a memento from the MCA for his 200th ODI. "The knock was satisfying," he sais "Purely because New Zealand put us under pressure early on. We thought 275 was a good total. But Ross and Tom were fantastic. Didn't give us any chances, apart from a run-out here or there. And when you get a 200 partnership, you deserve to win. Putting dew into perspective, in the last 13-14 overs, we were 20-30 short. But in the first half of the day, the wicket was playing very different. We would have liked a better batting performance, if a couple more guys had chipped in, batting a few more overs, we could have 40 runs extra. New Zealand tackled our spinners really well, handled the fast bowlers too. Credit to Tom and Ross - Tom especially, Ross has been around for a while. He's not played as many international games. but he played superbly. Trent as well, with the ball. There was enough turn in the pitch to trust the frontline spinners. Maybe if the chase had gone away from us earlier, or If the lower order was in, we might have used Kedar. Hardik did well for us as well, so we didn't feel the need to bring Kedar in

9.35 pm New Zealand are always a team that hide a bit of their firepower. Seeing their line-up on paper, not many would have thought they would take a 1-0 lead over an Indian side that had walloped Australia and Sri Lanka so substantially. But as was the case in the World T20 a year ago, when they read pitches so superbly, and went in without Boult and Southee for the whole tournament, New Zealand have surprised the world again.

They saw Tom Latham's skill in playing spin and realised he could serve them better - especially in slow, subcontinent conditions - in the middle order and that move has paid off immediately. There have only been 10 centuries by New Zealand batsmen at No. 4 or lower in ODIs since 2015. Six of them were from Taylor, who made 95 today. They needed steel in the middle order - they were booted from the Champions Trophy because they were Williamson or nothing. Today, the captain made only 9, but his team-mates stood up for him. Spare a thought for Trent Boult as well, who knocked over India's openers in his first five overs, and then forced India into rebuild more. He finished with 4 for 35 in 10 overs.

"Take the win any time. The way Kohli went out and anchored the innings, put us under pressure," Ross Taylor says. "But Tom Latham went out there and held us together. He took the pressure off me. Our conversation was to take it deep, and make sure we didn't have a new batsman in. It's very hard to start here. Kuldeep and Chahal are fantastic, spinning both ways. It helped that we had a right-left handed partnership. To keep wicket the whole 50 overs, to bat in the middle order, after being an opener, I think it's one of his best innings ever"

Mustafa Moudi: "This is the Highest Chased Score at Wankhede Beating India's Record of chasing 275 at the WC 2011 Finals..."

Shankar: "I don't to see any reason to worry for just one loss. But, India should seriously think about Dhoni's role in the team. They have to bring in Manish in place of MSD. He is becoming liability to this team. "

48.6B Kumar to HM Nicholls, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, heaves it over deep square leg for the victory! A length ball, sent soaring into the night sky, and towards a crowd that is simply stunned..

Taylor gets a pat on the back from the incoming batsman, Henry Nicholls and walks into his dressing room to find his team-mates on their feet for him. Captain's first in line, sharing in a hug. Williamson fell for single-digits and yet New Zealand are winning.

48.5B Kumar to LRPL Taylor, OUT, No run, Chahal is claiming the catch at extra cover and Taylor is gone for 95! He's played a splendid hand, but it ends with a wide half-volley being smacked to the fielder, low to his right..
48.4B Kumar to LRPL Taylor, No run, gets down the track, is surprised by the wide yorker, Taylor stretches to steer the ball to point.
48.3B Kumar to TWM Latham, 1 run, short and wide, Latham cuts to the sweeper. That's the 200th run of the partnership, and and the scores are level. Taylor on 95 as well....
48.2B Kumar to TWM Latham, No run, offcutter on off stump, Latham pushes it to cover.
48.1B Kumar to TWM Latham, No run, back of a length and outside off, Latham steers it to backward point.

LRPL Taylor 95 (95b 8x4 0x6 ) more

This is a list of New Zealand batsmen at No. 4 or lower making centuries in recent times. One name dominates the list. And he'ss on 95. It also shows how much New Zealand need a batsman in the middle order to stand up and contribute.

End of over 46. 11 runs this over. 262/3 after 275 balls.
TWM Latham 93 (92b 8x4 1x6 ) JJ Bumrah 8-0-48-1
LRPL Taylor 89 (92b 7x4 0x6 ) more

Tarun: "One of the finest chases I have seen in long long time. Good old fashioned hard cricket. Dug-in, Rotate strike, hit an occasional boundary, sweep spinners and most importantly, keep a calm head and just play. Really good without too many fireworks!!"

Benny: "Latham has been at his fluent best and will surely get to a super century. But, Taylor hasn't played his best yet has still scored and at a decent rate. Pure Graft. Pure Class"

End of over 45. 8 runs this over. 251/3 after 270 balls.
TWM Latham 92 (91b 8x4 1x6 ) Kuldeep Yadav 10-0-64-1
LRPL Taylor 80 (88b 5x4 0x6 ) more

New Zealand need 30 at a run-a-ball. Looks easy, but Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah would see each of those as an opportunity. Meanwhile, Latham and Taylor get in a few drinks to ward off their cramps for a little longer.

These two have put on 168 now, the highest partnership for any wicket at this venue in ODIs

LRPL Taylor 78 (86b 5x4 0x6 ) YS Chahal 10-0-51-0
TWM Latham 86 (87b 7x4 1x6 ) more

New Zealand need 38 off 36 now and here's Kuldeep again

Amogh K: "Runs accumulated by running - Kohli 73/121, Taylor 59/75, Latham 48/76. Exceptional by the Kiwis to almost match up with Kohli in Mumbai heat. They aren't used to this kind of weather."

NOuman AnjUm: "its not about calmness of this pair, but the astonishing ability to play the spinners is the key role in this chase"

slip and leg slip in play for the right-hander

End of over 43. 8 runs this over. 232/3 after 258 balls.
TWM Latham 78 (84b 7x4 0x6 ) Kuldeep Yadav 9-0-56-1
LRPL Taylor 75 (83b 5x4 0x6 ) more

The equation is 49 off 42 balls. But there's a break in play as some drinks are run out to the New Zealand batsmen, and the physio is out there as well, checking on their fitness. Both Taylor and Latham have been cramping

Jigar: "That's what Aus missed a calm headed middle order"

End of over 42. 6 runs this over. 224/3 after 252 balls.
TWM Latham 71 (79b 6x4 0x6 ) YS Chahal 9-0-40-0

End of over 41. 6 runs this over. 218/3 after 246 balls.
LRPL Taylor 72 (80b 5x4 0x6 ) HH Pandya 10-0-46-1
TWM Latham 67 (75b 6x4 0x6 ) more

New Zealand need 63 runs off 54 balls and one of their set batsmen is feeling the effects of exhaustion. Taylor's been out there for 80 balls. He's not always looked himself, but he is showing the temperament to fight. At the other end, Tom Latham has accepted his middle-order role like it's a piece of chocolate cake. Can he take them through though? Here's Chahal

Ankur Singhal: "Virat is undoubtedly a good batsman, but when comes to captaincy, he is still far behind Saurav Ganguly and Dhoni. Under Ganguly captaincy, India has the good record of defending low scores strongly and here today 280 seems easy achievable now. Virat needs to learn to give the ball to non-regular bowler may be like Jadhav or Dhoni himself when Kartik is already playing or Dhawan. 2-3 over experiments is not bad thing, Ganguly earlier used Sachin, Sehwag or even Dravid in such situations." ---- Might also have to tip your hat to two batsmen who've handled the middle overs expertly

New Zealand need 77 from 66 balls, with seven wickets in hand. Really though, they have to finish it with this partnership. A new man, having to face Kuldeep and Chahal can be dangerous

That will also be drinks. I'm done for the day. I said the middle period will decide which way this game is going. I was very wrong. But this next third of the innings will, promise. Al Muthu will take you through that.

Saurabh: "@Jiten: The problem with no-balls has consistently plagued India in crucial matches and lost them key moments. In the same World T20 semis, Ashwin had Simmons by Bumrah off the 41st ball of the match which turned out to be a no-ball and Simmons took the match away from India. In CT 2017 Final, Bumrah then had Fakhar Zaman caught off a no-ball very early in the match, only for it to be called a no-ball "

Oh, this is looking bad for New Zealand. Even in their last assignment, when Wiliamson was doing so very well, the other end was self-destructing badly. So much that they were the first team to be knocked out. Since then though, Ross Taylor has found better form, and Tom Latham, a reliable batsman against spin, has been pushed down to the middle order. They'll be tested tonight.

6.05 pm And out come the New Zealand batsmen again. Conditions are good enough to resume once more

6.00 pm The umpires have come together and it seems they are worried about one of the light towers not working. They've paused play for the moment. But it shouldn't be too long of a delay.

Saurabh: "@Jagdish Lalan- the thing with Dhoni is that he is not only a regular wicket keeper but a major and dependable middle order batsman and a major presence in the field, even for the captain. Replacing him will put a whole lot more pressure on VK. No wicket keeper comes close to his contributions to a team at a time.
