England and New Zealand clashed against each other in an ODI match in 2008 in Napier. While batting first, the three lions scored 340 runs in the first innings, as almost every batter from the team contributed to the scoreboard.

However, that wasn’t enough as the Kiwis provided a nail-biting chase. The middle order batter Jamie How smashed a brilliant century and scored 139 runs off just 116 balls which included 10 fours and 3 sixes. But he couldn’t take his team to victory and the match ended up in a draw.

England came to chase and started aggressively, the then-skipper Andrew Strauss was leading the chase and played a brilliant inning of 158 runs. However, Zaheer Khan brought the Indian team back into the game as he removed Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood, and the match ended in a draw.

321 –India vs West Indies in Vishakapatnam, 2018
