India on top in CWCSL points table despite losing by 7 wickets, know at which number New Zealand is

India vs New Zealand: India remained on top of the Cricket World Cup Super League (CWCSL) despite a seven-wicket defeat against New Zealand in the first ODI of the three-match series in Auckland on Friday. Brilliant half-centuries from Shubman Gill (50), Shikhar Dhawan (72) and Shreyas Iyer (80) as well as Washington Sundar (37) took India to 306/7 in 50 overs. In reply, brilliant innings from Tom Latham (145 not out from 104 balls) and Kane Williamson (94 not out from 98 balls) and their unbeaten fourth wicket partnership of 221 runs helped New Zealand post their second highest target against India in the match helped to achieve.

After their impressive win, New Zealand gained 10 CWCSL points and jumped two places from sixth to fourth position in the table. They are currently tied with Australia on 120 points but are slightly behind their neighbors on net run rate. On the other hand, India, who have automatically qualified for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 by virtue of being the hosts of the tournament, are on top with 129 points.

New Zealand’s win in the second ODI in Hamilton on Sunday will take them from fourth to the top of the CWCSL table. Notably, a total of the top eight teams will get direct entry into the Cricket World Cup 2023. The remaining teams will play in the Men’s World Cup qualifiers along with five associate teams. After this, two teams from the qualifying tournament will advance to the World Cup.

Significantly, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer scored half-centuries for India. Iyer played a brilliant inning of 80 runs. He faced 76 balls and hit 4 fours and 4 sixes. While Kane Williamson and Tom Latham did wonders for New Zealand.
