It has been a clinical performance from the Indians as they did not allow even a single chance to the opposition in the match. India almost won the first international one day match against New Zealand.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson top-scored with 64 runs but the hosts failed to put up an impressive show after opting to bat in the series opener. Virat Kohli’s Team India, riding high on the success of their historic tour of Australia, are facing New Zealand’s strongest possible line-up. With the focus entirely on World Cup preparations, the visitors will hope to find a perfect middle-order combination despite their first-ever bilateral ODI series win on Australian soil.
As team India reached Auckland, they were showered with love and appreciation. Our men in blue is there to play against New Zealand. They have a limited series to play for. For this 5 One day international matches and 3 t20s Indian team arrived Auckland yesterday.
BCCI proudly posted on their official twitter handle a video, welcoming team India in Auckland. Check out the video.

Though many wished Indian team a very successful tour, few found some one odd about the video. It is no one but famous Bollywood actress and the wife of our national team skipper Anushka Sharma.
Twitter users and Indian team users found it really odd and started to troll her for her presence along with the Indian team. Check out some of their comments :

Explain this @BCCI
What is the position and role of Anushka Sharma in the team…
Is Bowler / batsman or what?
Why she’s always roaming with team??

From when Anushka Sharma is part of India. Why are the rules different for Virat. Why other players wives are not allowed to stay with them on tour. This is so unfair.

Anushka Sharma is NOT a member of squad! Why is she there all the time??? As if other players don’t have families.😬

Why only @AnushkaSharma is with Team Inida always? The other players wives are not allowed?
She is going only for residential status…!!
