New Zealand had lost their openers at the end of the sixth over when Jasprit Bumrah had Tom Latham caught at mid-on after a leading edge. The score at the moment was 28 and it was New Zealand’s second wicket. From there, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor added 35 runs for the third wicket. Once Williamson fell in the 15th over at the team score of 63, the remaining seven wickets could only add sixteen runs as the Black Caps surrendered the match to India.

In the end, India won the match by a massive margin of 190 runs and with that sealed the five-match one-day international series 3-2.

Amit Mishra led the bowling attack with his five-wicket haul to run through the New Zealand batting and bowl them out for just 79 runs in the 24th over, the lowest played by the visitors in a completed innings. Axar Patel picked up two wickets while debutant off-spinner Jayant Yadav picked a wicket as well.

Umesh Yadav began the damage for New Zealand when he picked up opener Martin Guptill for a duck in the first over of the second innings with a peach of delivery.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma scored 70 and Virat Kohli scored 65 runs to propel India to 269/6. MS Dhoni also chipped in with 41 runs. Axar Patel and Kedar Jadhav added crucial 46 runs for the seventh wicket to help India cross the 250-run mark on a slow Visakhapatnam pitch.

For New Zealand, Ish Sodhi and Trent Boult picked up two wickets each while Jimmy Neesham and Mitchell Santner picked up a wicket each.
