After going three straight Test matches and an ODI without win, New Zealand turned things around at Kotla with a win. And that six run win could also have been more convincing but for late heroics by Hardik Pandya and Umesh Yadav.

For India, Kedar Jadhav (41), MS Dhoni (39) and Pandya (36) were amongst the runs while Tim Southee struck with three wickets. However, Martin Guptill picked up two vital wickets.

Earlier, Kane Williamson scored a ton (118) to give New Zealand the edge and got good support from Tom Latham (46) for the second wicket. For India, Bumrah and Amit Mishra both picked up three wickets.

        dhoni is responsible for more matches team has lost than he has won for the team... captain cool s hands are frozen and his helicopter is grounded... this can be confirmed by one mr Gautam Gambhir who has time and again disapproved of Dhoni s tactics...hence GG was sidelined for so long... now it is the turn of captain cool to put in pares from all forms of international cricket before he is shoved off ...
