India has played only one ODI at Brabourne stadium, Mumbai and emerged victorious against New Zealand by 6 wickets, in the bilateral series of 1995.
Sent to bat first New Zealand, led by Germon were bundled out for 126 runs in 35 overs. Wicketkeeper-captain Germon with 29 runs was the highest scorer for the team. Kumble with 17/3 emerged as the main tormentor, while A Kapoor (2/33), Srinath (2/22) and Prabhakar (1/29) added to the misery of tourists. Even Venkatesh Prasad (0/22 in 6 overs) did not give the Kiwis any breathing space.
During the small chase, Tendulkar failed scoring only 1 run in 4 balls, but opener Prabhakar (32*) and number 3 batsman Kambli (48) build strong 64-run partnership. Captain Azharuddin (4) and Sanjay Manjrekar (0) gave Kiwis some hope as India were 75/4, but Ajay Jadeja (35*) with Prabhakar sealed victory in 32 overs.
Doull (3/42) and MOrrison (1/32) challenged Indians. But the low score did not help their cause.
Srinath was declared the Man of the Match.
