Rarely does a double century knock in an ODI get matched by another knock, but that is what occurred today in Hyderabad. On a difficult surface, Shubman Gill's 208 helped India score a massive 349 runs, as shown by the fact that no other batsman in the innings made it past 35. When the visitors were reduced to 131/6, it appeared like the game was over. However, Michael Bracewell (140) and Mitchell Santner (57) produced an improbable recovery and nearly pulled off a victory before falling agonizingly short by 12 runs.
Stats highlights from the first ODI in Hyderabad:
1 Against New Zealand, Gill became the first player to reach a double hundred in ODIs. The previous record for an individual score against New Zealand was the unbeaten 186 by Sachin Tendulkar at Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium in the same city in 1999.
Double hundreds in ODIs:
ODI. He outperformed colleague Ishan Kishan, who had scored 210 against Bangladesh in Chattogram last month at the age of 24 years and 145 days.
Together with Imam-ul-Haq, Gill reached 1000 ODI runs in 19 innings, which is the second-fastest time for a hitter in the format. The previous fastest for India was 24 innings apiece from Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. Fakhar Zaman continues to hold the record with his one-inning faster milestone achievement.
Fewest innings to 1000 ODI runs:
174 The gap between Gill (208) and the next highest scorer (Rohit Sharma's 34) is 174 runs, which ranks as the third-largest such gap in an innings. The biggest differential of this kind was 198 runs when Rohit Sharma scored 264 and Virat Kohli scored 66 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata in 2014.
2 After MS Dhoni, Bracewell became the second player in ODI history to record multiple hundreds while batting at or below position seven. After scoring an unbroken 127 off just 82 balls in a pursuit of 301 after stepping in at 120/5 against Ireland in Dublin last July, this was his second three-figure score in the format. His 140 overall is tied for the third-highest score by an ODI batsman batting at seven or lower.
57 After Corey Anderson (36 balls) and Jesse Ryder (46 balls), who both accomplished the feat against the West Indies in Queenstown on New Year's Day 2014, Bracewell's century is the third-fastest ODI century for New Zealand. Only Shahid Afridi has scored a hundred against India in less deliveries—in 45 balls in Kanpur in 2005.
The 162-run partnership between Bracewell and Santner is the biggest partnership for New Zealand ever and the third-best stand for the seventh wicket or lower in ODI cricket, surpassing the 123 run partnership between Jacob Oram & Neil Broom against Bangladesh in Napier in 2010. It was also the most against India, topping the 148 scored in Mirpur last month by Mahmudullah & Mehidy Hasan.
Cricket Betting: Martingale Strategy
Another option for betting on cricket with progressively higher stakes is the Martingale betting strategy, which is also a mathematical variant of the Dogon betting method.
The Martingale cricket betting technique involves raising the wager after each loss. The Martingale approach, which is intriguing and hazardous, may be the sole option for cricket bettors who want to minimize their financial losses during a losing streak.
Your next wager should be twice as much as the first one if you lose the first one. If you do win the wager, though, the next one should match the winning one.
Simple logic dictates that you should pick cricket matches with odds greater than 2.0 because you have doubled your bets and require a double-digit victory percentage.
