Alongside being the highest Indian scorer in the first ODI, Shreyas also marked a special record in his name. Today Shreyas scored his fourth consecutive 50+ innings in One Day Internationals on New Zealand soil. He has also become the first batsman from India to achieve this milestone. Shreyas had earlier scored 103 runs in 107 balls, 52 runs in 57 balls, 62 runs in 63 balls in the last three ODI innings during India’s tour of New Zealand in 2020.

With this he has also become the second batsman to have such stats. Earlier, former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja had played four 50+ innings in ODIs during New Zealand tour. And now Shreyas has equaled Rameez Raja. Apart from Shreyas, Sanju Samson played an inning of 36 runs in 38 balls. Washington Sundar played an unbeaten inning of 37 runs in 16 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes.

Currently, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and Tom Latham are playing at the loss of three wickets. Williamson has also scored another half century and is the biggest hope for black caps.
