Napier: New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum on Sunday termed his team's victory in the first ODI against world No. 1 team, India as "huge" and said the fact that the Kiwis came out on top despite Virat Kohli's century is a good sign. (Match report)
"The result today is huge for us. To start the series against what is a very good Indian team and then Virat Kohli performed as well as what he did. Yet we come out on top, it is a really good sign. I am delighted for the guys, delighted with today's performance," said McCullum at the post match press conference after his team's 24-run win over India.
Chasing 293, India lost the first ODI of the five-match series with Kohli's 111-ball 123 going down the drain. (Highlights)
