Bowlers set up India’s comprehensive six-wicket win over New Zealand in the first one-day international as batting mainstay Virat Kohli anchored the hosts’ chase in the low-scoring encounter in Dharamsala on Sunday.

Kohli scored an unbeaten 85 to help the hosts canter home in 33.1 overs after debutant Hardik Pandya and Amit Mishra took three wickets each to bowl out New Zealand for 190.

India lead the five-match series 1-0.
