Never has the Indian team ever won an ODI match on January 26, i.e. India’s Republic Day, until today. The Men in Blue dominated the game in all the three departments and won the second ODI against New Zealand by 90 runs eventually. India is 2-0 up in the series, and the Republic Day 2019 celebrations couldn’t be any better for an Indian fan!
The Indian spinners were the wrecker-in-chief as the trio of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, and Kedar Jadhav picked seven wickets amongst them. The pick of the bowlers was Kuldeep who finished the match with the bowling figures 10-0-45-4.
