Jan. 22, 2014
HAMILTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand's Corey Anderson slugged five sixes as he scored 44 runs from 17 balls to lead the hosts to 271-7 against India in the second game of their one-day series, with the contest reduced to 42 overs per side due to rain.
Kane Williamson made 77 and Ross Taylor made 57 joining Anderson in a late onslaught in which they added 74 runs in 4.4 overs.
New Zealand's innings was twice interupted by rain: for only 10 minutes on the first occasion then for almost two hours from the 34th over when they were 170-2. They showed little effect from the interruption, returning to score 101 runs in the last 8.4 overs.
They looked set for a formidable total, but lost four wickets for four runs, stemming the flow.
