Auckland, New Zealand, November 25 : With a 1-0 lead in the upcoming three-match ODI series, the dominant Kiwis took a 221-run lead, but failed to capitalize on it.The hosts were unbeaten at 883 in 19.5 overs at one point until the Latham and Willamson team updipped in to write a match-winning partnership.Lathams innings was studded with five sixes and 19 fours, including a southpaw who has been Indias nemesis on previous occasions.The opener showed mercy to the Indian bowlers by cutting and pulling at will.

I loved myself, had fun batting with the captain, and was able to locate gaps efficiently, the southpaw said.We fought on the merit of every delivery.The duo was able to bat under lights with ease because they were well aware of the grounds dimensions, particularly the short square boundaries.It was just one of those days when everything went well.While working on it, I formed a friendship with Kane and had a lot of fun along the way.

It was about getting ourselves in strong positions and reacting to what they were bowling at.At the post-match presentation, Latham said he was able to fill the gaps.Washington Sunder, an all-rounder, stood out on a disappointing outing for the Indian bowlers, bowling tight lines and lengths while troubling Latham and Williamson.However, it is a small ground and we could capitalize (on the short boundaries) at the end of the day.
