Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya picked up 3 wickets each to wreck New Zealand's top order while Virat Kohli scored yet another fifty to ensure an easy 6-wicket victory for India in the 1st ODI. Twitterati had a ball making fun of Hardik, Umesh, New Zealand's batting, and Dhoni's run-out (wait, what!).
Before we get to the bowlers
Dhoni's first game after his biopic release. He will be feeling the pressure of living up to Sushant Rajput's standards. #indvnz— cricBC (@cricBC) October 16, 2016
What is with these comparisons!
Indian commentators have already portrayed Pandya, Umesh and Axar as Kallis, Mcgrath and Vettori respectively with their commentary #IndvNZ— Shubh Aggar'Wall' (@shubh_chintak) October 16, 2016
When he surprised himself with the three wickets!
Harsh but true!

Ross Taylor has been less than useless on this Indian tour. #IndvNZ
Well! What was that with the two wickets?
Kedar Jadhav on Hattrick. After seeing this even fish will get confidence to fly. 😂 #IndvNz— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) October 16, 2016
Kiwis top order be like!

Spoke a bit too early though...
All professionals can learn from India's bowlers. If you're asked to work full day on Sunday, get the job done in quick time 😉 #IndvNZ— Gaurav Kapur (@gauravkapur) October 16, 2016
New Zealand doing their bit to conserve electricity by ensuring the match is over before the lights need to be turned on #IndvNZ— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) October 16, 2016
The Umesh we know!
Umesh takes a blinder and then drops a sitter. Classic Umesh. #indvsnz— Sonali Dhulap (@pillya) October 16, 2016
Umesh Yadav compensating for taking wickets by dropping catch. #IndvNz— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) October 16, 2016
Even Jadhav was in the attack before them!
Times have changed. This hasn't!

After Rahane hit two sixes in the same over
Rahane can never be Dravid, itne sixes toh Dravid EA Sports cricket mein bhi nahi maarta tha.— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) October 16, 2016
A rare moment in the history of cricket and the fans were definitely suprised...
Note the date, on 16th OCT 2016 Dhoni got run out. #IndvNz— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) October 16, 2016
I was alive when dhoni got run-out— Chikoo (@TweetErrant) October 16, 2016
Somebody had to say this...
After yet another beautiful cover-drive by Kohli enroute to his fifty

And Virender Sehwag applying the finishing touches...
