Navdeep Saini played the knock of his life to give India a fighting chance in the must-win second ODI against New Zealand in Auckland on Saturday.

Chasing New Zealand's 273/8, India's top order failed but Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja turned up to play pivotal knocks, but the surprise came from Saini, the bowler.

Batting for the first time in his short ODI career, the 23-year-year from Karnal in Haryana, hit 45 off 49 balls with the help of five fours and two sixes, including successive fours off Colin de Grandhomme in the 44th over.

He was bowled by Kyle Jamieson, off the third ball of the next over, after hitting a six.

He and Jadeja resurrected the Indian innings with a 76-run stand.

Here are some fan reactions:
