Men in Blue started the New Zealand sojourn with an emphatic win in the first ODI. The visitors thumped the kiwis by 8 wickets after restricting them to 157 runs. After full filing his on-field duties, Virat Kohli took some time off from his busy schedule to be with wife, Anushka Sharma, who is accompanying him for the Kiwi tour. Virat shared an Instagram story with the caption, “Moments with Her”.

Here's the pic:

Anushka was with her beau during the tour Down Under as well where she met the Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison.

Shikhar Dhawan scored an unbeaten 75 and Virat Kohli scored 45 to guide India to an eight-wicket win over New Zealand in a one-day cricket international that was shortened because of so-called sun-strike. 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.

Kohli won a brief reprieve on 37 when he adjudged lbw to Tim Southee but had the decision overturned on review. Dhawan also had some luck, being dropped by wicketkeeper Tom Latham on 31.

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