Team India geared up for their 1st warmup game against NewZealand at The Oval stadium
- R Ashwin makes a comeback after 2 months of rest as instructed by the BCCI and ash even opted out of IPL due to exhaust after playing 13 test matches in the home season.
- Shami is also making a comeback into the Indian ODI team after 2 years, the last match which he played was in 2015 world cup.
Kiwis won the toss and choose to bat first - teams can chose to play any 11 from the lot as its a warmup game.
Players per side India 13 (11 batting, 11 fielding); New Zealand 12 (11 batting, 11 fielding)
For India, Yuvi and Rohit didn't play today. For NZ, Tom Latham, Mitchell McClenaghan and Ross Taylor were sitting out.
Martin Guptill and Luke Ronchi were at the crease. Shami opened the attack for India
With Shami, Bhuvi, Jaddu firing from all cylinders, India wrapped up NZ for 189/10
Luke Ronchi and James Neesham were the only batsmen in NZ amongst runs with 66 and 46 respectively
India on the other hand opened with Dhawan and Rahane - Jinx had to leave early with just 7 runs and Dhawan was joined by the skipper Virat Kohli
Both the Delhi boys were playing sensibly by taking on kiwis pace attack before Dhawan got out for 40 runs. Team must be happy that Dhawan got back to form which is crucial for India in this ICC tournament
MS Dhoni then joined hands with Kohli in an attempt to chase down the meagre total without losing anymore wicket - Kohli scored 52 and Dhoni with 17 when rain interrupted and forced the players & umpires to leave the field.
Finally, the match had been called-off due to heavy rains and thunderstorms continuing at the Oval, London
India won by 45 runs (D/L method)
India will next take on Bangladesh at the same venue in two days' time before heading to Birmingham to face arch rivals Pakistan on June 4.
