Cricket: New Zealand Defeats India on Second Day of Triangular Series


New Zealand's cricket team - led by the bowling of Shane Bond - has defeated India by 51 runs in the second one-day international match of a triangular series in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

The Kiwis scored 215 all out in 43.1 overs with Craig McMillan leading the squad with 54 runs. Brendon McCullum added another 49 runs for New Zealand, but Indian bowler Irfan Pathan took three wickets for 34 while Ashish Nehra took 2-22.

But Bond was the star of the day, taking six wickets while allowing only 19 runs as New Zealand held India to 164 all out in 37.2 overs. Jyoti Yadav was the top scorer for India with 69 runs.

The match was New Zealand's second win of the triangular series. The Kiwis beat host country Zimbabwe by 192 earlier this week.
