Cricket: Early losses hamper Kiwis' victory chase
India 208 & 356 New Zealand 352 & 73 for 4
Wednesday 30 December 1998
With Sachin Tendulkar in full flight with a century, India at lunch seemed sure to set New Zealand a hard target. But the second new ball triggered a collapse. Tendulkar was caught for 113 and Azharuddin departed with 48. India lost their last six wickets for only 59 runs to be all out for 356. That set New Zealand to make 213 to win.
New Zealand could put together only one partnership of any substance - 41 runs for the second wicket between Matthew Horne and Stephen Fleming.
