IND vs NZ 1st ODI: Michael Bracewell’s century becomes third quickest ton by a Kiwi batsman

After Shubman Gill’s double century set the Kiwis a challenging target of 350 runs, India appeared to be in the driving seat. The hosts were confident of a straightforward victory after the top order’s destruction of the top order, but Michael Bracewell flashed the “It’s not over yet” sign after his incredible tonne.

The Indians, who were primarily anticipating Latham or Conway, will be taken aback by Michael’s innings after Bracewell’s incredible performance, which saw him support team New Zealand from the bottom up.

With a incredible ton in just 57 balls, Bracewell now becomes the third quickest Kiwi batsman to hit a century in the ODI format.

By scoring the fastest one-day international century for Kiwis, Corey Anderson created history. Anderson faced the West Indies in Auckland and scored a century from just 36 balls.
