With the seven wickets today, Mohammed Shami successfully became the fastest Indian bowler to clinch 50 wickets in the history of ICC World Cup as the pacer achieved the milestone during his 17th innings. Earlier, Mitchell Starc was holding this record in 19 innings. 

The pacer struck on his first ball to dismiss Devon Conway and soon struck back to take out in-form Rachin Ravindra. Then started a long, tough phase for the Indian team as New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson played in an 181-run partnership with all-rounder Daryl Mitchell, who also slammed his second century against India.

As the Indian bowlers struggled against the New Zealand batters and desperately chased wickets, Mohammed Shami dropped one catch and the crowds at Wankhede went completely silent. But, the pacer didn't let the incident distract him and dismissed New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson to stage an epic comeback.

Mohammed Shami not only ended the strong 181-run partnership but provided Team India with another wicket in the same over as he dismissed Tom Latham in the same over on 0. The energy was back in the crowds of Wankhede as the fans cheered for the Indian team.

Glenn Phillips is the new batter on the crease and Daryl Mitchell is still standing strong. New Zealand is back in pressure as Mohammed Shami is again bowling a magical spell for India and is very close to getting another fifer for Team India.

Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer shine as India score 397/4 

Earlier, India displayed some wonderful batting on the pitch of Wankhede as Virat Kohli slammed his 3rd century of the ICC World Cup 2023 and surpassed Sachin Tendulkar's record as he smashed 50 tons in the One Day International (ODI) format of cricket. Shreyas Iyer also slammed his second consecutive century to take Team India towards a high score.
