Here are the Indian player rankings from the win against New Zealand in the first ODI.


IND vs NZ 2023: Gill hits double century, Siraj shines for Team India with 4

Rohit Sharma: 5/10

Rohit once again looked good before throwing away his wicket. The Indian really needs to turn his start into a big score, and his captaincy at the end of New Zealand’s chase was unimpressive.


Shubman Gill: 10/10

Gayle was unstoppable in Hyderabad as he broke Ishan Kishan’s record of becoming the youngest to score a double century in ODI cricket. On his way to becoming a great player in the opener format.


Virat Kohli: 2/10

Kohli creamed a trademark cover drive, but was beaten trying to save Mitchell Santner’s delivery off the back foot. He really should have moved on, with a familiar style post-dismissal.


Ishan Kishan: 3/10

Lockie could not make an impact at No. 4 in Ferguson’s second spell. The wicketkeeper played 14 balls for his five runs, far from his usual pace.


Suryakumar Yadav: 6/10

Surya Kumar showed great intent and stroke play at the crease, but he took a brilliant catch to cover after scoring 31 runs.


Hardik Pandya: 4/10

Hardik was one of India’s worst performers in the first ODI against New Zealand. He bowled some tight overs under pressure, but was all over the place otherwise as he consistently short-pitched the ball and the Kiwis bowled it to all corners of the ground. With the bat, the all-rounder scored 28 runs before being dismissed unfairly.


Shardul Thakur: 6/10

Thakur struck two bowling strikes – first dismissing the aggressive Finn Allen and then trapping Bracewell in front in the last over. His consistency has improved, but playing as a third fast bowler is not enough for him. The 31-year-old was India’s second most expensive bowler on the night.


Mohammad Shami: 5/10

Shami bowled Glenn Phillips with an indipper, but his bowling no longer has the same bite. He scored 69 runs in his 10-over spell and didn’t look too dangerous despite the odd edge.


Washington Sundar: 4/10

Sunder had a difficult period in Hyderabad. He played a nerve-wracking innings that scored 12 runs and brought the seven-over spell without a wicket to 50.


Mohammad Siraj: 9.5/10

Siraj was once again the pick of the Indian bowlers. He took four wickets, including two overs, to round off his brilliant spell. The hometown hero, who was the only Indian bowler not to hit a six, is getting better by the day.


Kuldeep Yadav: 7.5/10

Kuldeep also gave a promising performance. New Zealand’s batsmen struggled to get hold of it, resulting in two scalps for the left-arm wrist spinner. He is definitely ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal in the pecking order.
