After scoring a well compiled 75 not-out in the first ODI against New Zealand in Napier, Shikhar Dhawan was pictured spending quality time with his daughter.

He shared an image and wrote: Happiness is father and daughter time…

Opener Rohit Sharma was out for 11 two balls but Dhawan and Kohil calmly guided India to 132-2, before Kohli was caught by Latham from the bowling of Lockie Ferguson.

Dhawan and Kohli shared a 91-run partnership which helped India reach its winning target with 85 balls remaining, taking early momentum to start the five-match series.

Dhawan reached his 26th half century in ODIs from 69 balls and had been joined by Ambati Rayudu who was 13 not out when the winning runs came in the 35th over.

India owed its victory more to a superb collective bowling performance than the efforts of its batsmen.
