“Kane and Latham supremacy”, Twitter reacts as New Zealand have won their 13th consecutive ODI at home, which is their longest winning streak at home

New Zealand national cricket team led by Kane Williamson made a stellar rebound in the start of the ODI series after they surrendered at the hands of the visitors in the three-match T20I series.

Earlier, Team India won the T20I series by 1-0 as Hardik Pandya and Co notched up a 65-run win in the second T20I. The first T20I was washed out without a ball being bowled due to rain.

On the other hand, the series decider saw an interruption of rain in India’s run-chase. With the DLS method coming into play, India’s score was level with the par score and as a result, the game ended in a tie.
