6th ODI: India v New Zealand (Winner: IND)

IND 223 (V Sehwag 110, MS Dhoni 38, T Southee 49/4, N McCullum 35/3) beat NZ 118 (K Mills 52, P Kumar 34/3, M Patel 21/3) by 105 runs.

Match Scorecard   
Man of the Match: V Sehwag Dambulla, Sri Lanka (25 Aug,2010)

India started as slight favourites with a COW of 52 but since when they let it bother them. 4 quick wickets and India was 66/4 in 13th over. Sehwag led the rescue act along with Dhoni to keep the Coach happy. Sehwag’s 13th century took India to 173 before yet another familiar collapse saw India tumble to 223 and the COW fall to 40. New Zealand went off to an even worse start and never really recovered. They found themselves at 80/9 as the top order collapsed under pressure from disciplined bowling in helpful conditions. Only Kyle Mills responded to Coach’s call with a big hitting 50 but it was never going to be enough. India bowled them out for 118 in 30.1 over to reach finals. Bad news: They play Sri Lanka again!

arrow 17 Overs: IND 91/4 NZ 52% India lost the wickets of Yuvraj Singh

arrow 32 Overs: IND 171/4 NZ 52% Virender Sehwag showed exactly
      why he is amongst the most peared batsmen in the world with a brilliant century, it’s a pity MS Dhoni could not be his usual aggressive self. India’s chances did not change during this period.
arrow 46.3 Overs: IND 223/10 NZ 60% The departure of Sehwag showed exactly
      what made the difference in this match, as India lost 6 wickets for only 50 runs after he was out. India’s chances decreased by 8% during this period.

      last 2 wickets, and it was left to them to score 165 runs at a run-a-ball. New Zealand’s chances decreased by 18% during this period.
arrow 30.1 Overs: NZ 118/10 IND 100% Despite some very good clean hitting
      from Kyle Mills, the result was never in doubt, but at least they went down in a blaze of glory. India won by 105 runs.
