The Twitterati had some fun at the expense of the Pune pitch curator's prediction of 337 as the Indian bowlers put in a brilliant performance to restrict New Zealand to just 230. With the help of Shikhar Dhawan and Dinesh Karthik's half centuries, India were able to chase down the target with ease.

Brief scores: New Zealand 230/9 in 50 overs (Henry Nicholls 42, Colin de Grandhomme 41; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3-45, Yuzvendra Chahal 2-36, Jasprit Bumrah 2-38) Lost to India 232/4 ( Shikhar Dhawan 68, Dinesh Karthik 64*, Adam Milne 1/21, Mitchell Santner 1/38) by 6 wickets.

Here are the funny tweets from the game:

Just a reminder of what Kohli did to the opposition the last time India played in Pune!

Just before the match, this happened!

All those no balls by Bumrah was to trick Williamson into taking a review! :P

Each ground is unique in it's own way! :)

What a strategic move by NZ! :P

Well played pitch curator, WELL PLAYED!

Rohit Sharma : Chasing down 230 is too mainstream! 

But Shikhar Dhawan didn't want to miss this opportunity! 

Wherever he goes.....

Dinesh Karthik shows why he was picked ahead of Pandey! Scoring a 50 when the team needed it.

What a comeback by the Indian team!
