India ICC trophies
Akmal feels a good team is judged by the way they play cricket and the way they develop cricketers.

Indian bowlers were on fire against New Zealand in the second ODI on January 21, Saturday in Raipur.

They dismissed 5 batters with just 15 runs in 10.3 overs. This is the best bowling display by Indian bowlers when the rivals were five down in a 50-over game. 

Mohammed Shami started the damage while Mohammed Siraj soon joined the party. While Shami took the wickets of Finn Allen (0) and Daryl Mitchell (1), Siraj got rid of Henry Nicholls (2). 

Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur sent back Devon Conway (7) and Tom Latham (1), respectively.

India bettered its record in terms of the lowest total by a rival team.
