Michael Bracewell smashed many a record en route his 140 that nearly took New Zealand over the line in Hyderabad. His partnership with Mitchell Santner was the Kiwis’ highest for the seventh wicket, and the best against India in the format. His 57-ball century was New Zealand’s third quickest and only the second fastest against India. He is now only the second cricketer with two ODI centuries at No.7, after MS Dhoni. But despite his 78-ball effort, New Zealand fell agonisingly short of a famous win, owing to a pinpoint accurate Shardul Thakur yorker.
