Watch cricket highlights - India vs NZ - 1st ODI highlights from the game played on March 3, 2009.
Scores: India 273 in a 38 over match. Virender Sehwag 77 (56), Suresh Raina 66 (39), MS Dhoni 84 (89). NZ 162
The weather shortened the 50 over match to 38 overs, but it didn't matter to Sehwag who was at it from the 1st over anyhow. MS Dhoni came 1 down but it was Raina's 66 that really propelled the Indian total. Dhoni looked the most aggressive he has in recent times, though it didn't always come off.
Early loss of wickets and good bowling by Praveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan curtailed the NZ chase and they eventually fell way short
