Rohit Sharma (India Captain): "I think its a good start to the tournament. We know that the job is half done. There is a long way to go in the tournament. Its important for us to stay balanced. Not think too far ahead of us. But enjoy the moment as well.

Shami took the opportunity with both hands, the way he bowled. He has got class. The way he bowled, bowling in these conditions; he bowled really well.

At one stage we were looking 300+. The way Mitch and Rachin batted, they put up a big partnership there and the wicket was easy to bat on as the dew came in as well. I got to give credit to our bowlers at the backend. Pulled things nicely and restrict them to 270 odd was a good effort in the end.

I am enjoying my batting with Gill. Both of us are different personalities, different ways of playing as well. We complement each other in the middle. Couldn't get big enough runs for the team but happy that the team won.

[Kohli's finish]. There is nothing much to say honestly. We have seen him do this for so many years. Such a calm head. He backed himself to do the job but again towards the end there was pressure. We lost a couple of wickets but Kohli and Jadeja pulled us back.

Fielding is something we really pride ourselves on. Today wasn't as clinical as we would have liked to. Couple of dropped catches here and there but you are talking about Jadeja who is one of the best in the world. These things happen but we want to build on that. Fielding is something that will decide a lot of things in the future.

We love travelling and playing in different parts of the country. So far they have not disappointed and we also haven't disappointed the crowd as well. Beautiful ground and weather."
Tom Latham (New Zealand Captain): "Yeah, I thought we played reasonably well. Maybe in the last 10 overs, we lost our way. India bowled really well in that phase. We couldn't stitch many partnerships in the last ten and hence failed to get the par score. Probably 30-40 short.

India batted well, they stitched partnerships after that back-to-back wickets. We failed to get the wickets during that partnership. Failed to get the double breakthroughs.

Yeah, as I said, India bowled really well. Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra forged a brilliant partnership and got us a very good platform. We had the foundation set for the back 10 overs. That is where you want to be as a team. If we get things right in the death overs, we are a dangerous side. 

Again Virat Kohli played an excellent innings, chasing a total. A fantastic knock. He controlled the tempo of the innings, and the rest were allowed to bat around him. As a captain, you have to be proactive but also work to your plans. Think about match-ups. Virat has a response to most plans.

We never played under fog. A rare situation for us. But sometimes, you find yourselves in those. It was a new challenge for us. Yeah, we have our next match coming in a week's time. We need to get back into the drawing room and get the little things sorted." 
Ninaad: Yes Sidharth! Brilliant dominating start for the home side. The top order especially has done a wonderful job. Virat Kohli is looking at his best, Rohit Sharma is providing wonderful starts every single time and whoever gets the role with the ball, gets the job done for the team as showcased by Shami tonight.
Sidharth: Five in five. Spectacular!
Mohammed Shami (Player of the Match): "When you join the team after a long time, it's important to gain confidence. When I bowled the first ball and got a wicket, it boosted my confidence.

It's not too hard. When your team is performing well and your players are performing well, it makes you happy. You keep supporting the players in the squad. It's in the team's interest.

It was very important. Because when you come after a long break, you have to bowl well while facing the top two teams. It feels good when you pick wickets against the top teams."

10:11 PM IST and Local Time: It took 20 years in the making but India has finally put down New Zealand in an ICC event! A brilliant Virat Kohli chase, Mohammed Shami's terrific comeback, magnificent opening partnership amongst others were highlights in India's 4-wicket win against New Zealand. The men in blue also take the top spot in the points table with 5 wins in a row.

Quick recap to the match as India won the toss and elected to bowl first. Daryl Mitchell hit a magnificent 130 and Rachin Ravindra continued his brilliant form with a brisk 75. Mohammed Shami playing in his first game in this edition picked up 5/54 in his 10 overs bringing the downfall of the New Zealand innings.

Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started off in style and added 71 runs for the opening wicket. Sharma added 46 in 40 deliveries with 4 fours and 4 sixes and chopped one Lockie Ferguson delivery back on the stumps.

Shubman departed in quick succession but it was the partnership of Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer that added 52 runs and stabilized the chase. Kohli also added 54 runs with KL Rahul for the next wicket and scored another half century in the chase.

Rahul departed after scoring 27 in 35 balls and World cup debutant Suryakumar Yadav sacrificed his wicket owing to a mixup in the middle between him and Kohli. Ravindra Jadeja then took the stage and finished the innings with the chasing king Kohli.

Kohli paced his innings to perfection and was looking good for another ton when the team's requirement of 5 runs was equivalent to his requirement for the 49th ODI ton. He lobbed one catch in the deep while trying to launch one Matt Henry delivery but Jadeja finished things off with a boundary in the same over as India went to the win with 12 balls to spare.
