Self-belief is becoming the
New Zealand one-day cricket
team s most prized asset.
Last night, as India advanced
in the cauldron of Seddon Park,
the Black Caps held their nerve
to post consecutive victories over
the world s No 1-ranked team.
had enough desire to repel the
rampant visitors, who threatened
deep into the 42-over rain-
e hosts posted 271 for
seven; the target was adjusted to
297 via the Duckworth-Lewis
New Zealand won by 15 runs
via the D-L method when the
match was called off with three
balls left as rain returned.
e required run rate rose
past 10, 11 and 12-an-over but
matches in this five-match series
are not over while Virat Kohli or
MS Dhoni swings. Kohli made
78 off 65 balls and Dhoni 56
off 44 balls. Sub-fielder Anton
Devcich and Kane Williamson
held the turning point catches.
ey are probably still shaking.
Tim Southee s four dismissals
--- including three at the top
of the Indian order as part of
figures of four for 72 --- were
defining moments. He became
the 15th New Zealand to take
100 ODI wickets over the
course of the match, finishing
Ajinkya Rahane (36) and
Suresh Raina (35) continued
the charge as the required rate
threatened to haemorrhage.
ey took Kohli s advice from
the previous match by judging
length and committing more to
"We controlled the run rate
which put pressure on their
batsmen and the wickets
followed," Black Caps captain
Brendon McCullum said.
"We realise they are
constructing the run chase
around Kohli and Dhoni so
it s important not to sit against
them and take their wickets
because it nullifies them. ere s
not many teams you have to
scrap harder against, even when
they re chasing 300."
Dhoni wants to see better
efforts from his openers.
" irty eight for two made it
difficult for the middle order.
ey (the openers) probably
should have carried on a bit
longer to take some pressure off.
"We re also giving away too
many easy boundaries on the
first and last balls of overs."
e New Zealanders are
completing timely work on
behalf of their administrators
as they contend with the
juggernaut axis of India-
the sport s future in the
International Cricket Council
e win toppled India
momentarily from a position
they have held since January
2013 at the top of the world
rankings while racking up
valuable confidence and support
as New Zealand prepares to
co-host the World Cup next
If Corey Anderson was not
worth an Indian Premier League
contract before this match, team
owners must be circling now.
In front of a packed Seddon
Park crowd and cricket s biggest
television audience he savaged
the Indian attack with 44 off 17
balls as New Zealand adapted
to the rain-reduced status.
e wicket of Dhoni did not
hurt either. Anderson applied
the Dr Who dalek mantra
with the bat, whether it was
the pace of Ishant Sharma and
Mohammed Shami or the spin
of Ravichandran Ashwin and
He came within 10m of
equalling Sanath Jayasuriya s
record quickest half-century off
17 balls when he was caught
near the boundary by Shikhar
Dhawan at wide long-on.
Anderson backed up his 68 off
40 balls in Napier and fastest
ODI century off 36 balls against
the West Indies in Queenstown.
Ross Taylor (57 off 56) looked
pedestrian by comparison
in a 74-run fourth-wicket
partnership with Anderson
from 28 balls. Taylor caressed;
Anderson bludgeoned. Any life-
form travelling in an arc from
Anderson s bat to the deep mid-
wicket boundary faced oblivion.
India initially applied New
Zealand s plan of short-pitched
bowling from the first match but
the hosts proved up to the task.
Williamson anchored the
innings with 77 off 87 balls. It
was the 11th time he has passed
50 in 46 ODI innings. e
theory parroted about him being
solely a test player must cease.
Textbook strokemaking does
not make a slow scorer. Shami
again proved the most successful
Indian bowler, taking three for
55 from seven overs. --- APNZ
A cricket fan plans to upgrade his car for
a ute after becoming the second person to
pocket $100,000 from grabbing a one-
Jatinder Singh, 22, from Te Aroha, caught
the ball one-handed from Corey Anderson s
bat in the 38th over of the second one-
dayer between New Zealand and India in
Hamilton, instantly earning a bumper pay
A promotion by Tui saw fans around the
country flock to the cricket this summer
wearing orange t-shirts, with the promise of
$100,000 for any to take a one-handed grab.
Hamilton fan Michael Morton won
$100,000 two weeks ago after making a
catch in the final one-dayer between New
Zealand and the West Indies.
Singh, who played cricket for Te Aroha
Cobras, said he was jumping up and down
after the successful catch. " at s not me
normally I m quite reserved."
He would use the money to buy a new ute,
and pay off his student loan.
"I haven t really thought it through. I m
about to start job hunting."
He said there was a "nervous moment"
when he checked whether he was wearing
the required lanyard.
"I had it inside my shirt, dunno how, but
this guy put his hand into my shirt (to
pull it out). I was like what are you doing?
but he was actually helping me out. It s all
confirmed though. Took about an hour or so.
I was still buzzing because initially they said
it would take 24 hours to confirm but they
came back in couple of hours and said it s all
He said he probably owed his mate Dexter
a commission for picking the spot where
they sat. "I said if you re ever around, you
won t have to buy a beer again ." --- APNZ

Martin Snedden remains
optimistic New Zealand Cricket
will not be left out in the cold
following a leaked proposal by the
International Cricket Council to
cede power to the Big ree of
India, England and Australia.
e New Zealand Cricket
board discussed the proposal in a
teleconference this morning and
board member Snedden will next
week travel for the ICC executive
meeting in Dubai on January 28
alongside NZC chief executive
David White with a list of five
things they want agreed on before
they give their support.
„ at the end result is a
workable governance system for
„ e ratification of a playing
schedule for the 10 main countries
2016-23 to be confirmed
„Assurances from India that
they buy into playing programme
and events schedule
„ICC events revenue sharing
model ensures NZC revenue
continues to grow over next eight
to 10 years
e controversial proposal
was put together by the ICC s
finance and commercial affairs
committee and presented to its
member boards on January 9. It
has India, England and Australia
controlling the executive board
and choosing which nations they
play bilateral series against, rather
than following the existing Future
While India has been an
unwilling participant of the FTP,
there are fears the powerhouse,
in combination with England
and Australia, will create an all-
powerful bloc to the detriment
of the rest of the world s cricket
Snedden said much depended
on the negotiations but it was
entirely possible New Zealand
would emerge with their current
home and away schedule
unchanged and a clearer picture
of where India stood.
" ere is some cynicism about it
but what needs to be understood
is that it s essential that India
commit to whatever the end result
is that comes out of this process,"
"Otherwise we ll be in exactly
the same position that we are at
the moment which is that India
are not committing to the playing
programmes that are on the
table. And that causes volatility
and disruption and problems.
Whereas if we can come up with
something that results in stability
of the playing programme that
they buy into and we come out
with something around the
revenue sharing model that they
buy into then that s going to take
us a long way forward."
e proposal will go to a vote in
Dubai. South Africa has already
said it is against the proposal,
calling it "unconstitutional".
e Federation of International
Cricketers Associations yesterday
issued a statement outlining their
"extreme concern" at the proposal
regarding the potential financial
and scheduling ramifications.
"It is not in the best interests
of the global game and we have
real fears that it will only serve
to strengthen the big three
countries whilst the rest are left
to wither on the vine," executive
chairman Paul Marsh said.
Snedden added: "If we were to
come out with an outcome which
had the Black Caps playing
programme clearly worse off in
terms of quality and quantity
then I wouldn t be in the slightest
surprised that people would look
at us and say what have you done .
But that s not what were setting
out to do.
"People have to allow what is
an intensive, volatile negotiation
process to play its way out. I
don t know how long it will
take. It could take days, some of
it might happen quite quickly
... or weeks or months, but don t
misunderstand we go into this
firmly fixed on an outcome which
if we achieve will be good for New
Zealand Cricket." --- APNZ
