All rounder Corey Anderson provided another display of world class power hitting, making an unbeaten 68 from 40 balls as New Zealand reached 292-7 batting first Sunday in the first one-day cricket international against India.
Anderson claimed the record for the fastest century in the history of one-day internationals, from 36 balls, during New Zealand's recent series against the West Indies and showed Sunday that he can subject even the world's best attacks to similar punishment.
He reached his half century from 30 balls and put on 66 runs for the sixth wicket with Luke Ronchi (30) in a partnership that lasted only 6.1 overs.
Earlier, Kane Williamson made 71 and Ross Taylor 55 in a 121-run third wicket partnership which laid the solid foundation of the New Zealand innings.
New Zealand 292-7 (Kane Williamson 71, Corey Anderson 68 not out, Ross Taylor 55; Mohammed Shami 4-55).
