India paid the price for some poor shot selection as New Zealand clinched the fourth ODI by 19 runs to level five-match series 2-2. Chasing a target of 261 on a slowish track, India were on course at 128 for 2 before a sudden middle-order collapse saw them lose four quick wickets as they were finally all-out for 241 in 48.4 overs. This was India's first loss at MS Dhoni's home ground in all the international matches that they have played so far. (Source: PTI)
New Zealand openers Martin Guptill (72) and Tom Latham (39) gave New Zealand a brisk start after the visiting captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat. The duo added 80 in the first 10 overs of fielding restrictions. It was Guptill's second fifty on this tour. (Source: PTI)
New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, who was well set in the middle and had scored 41 runs, was foxed by the bounce and took an edge to MS Dhoni. Williamson stuck four fours in his innings and added 43 runs with Ross Taylor before he fell victim to Amit Mishra. (Source: PTI)
Amit Mishra was the pick of the bowlers as he finished with 2/42. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and Jimmy Neesham, were Mishra two victims, while Umesh yadav, Axar Patel, Dhawal Kulkarni and Hardik Pandya backed one wicket each. (Source: PTI)
Indian opner Ajinkya Rahane scored his 16th ODI fifth before he was given lbw to Jimmy Neesham. Rahane smashed 5 fours and a six in innings of 57. Right-handed batsman, also, scored his first ODI half-century since January 2016. (Source: PTI)
Virat Kohli, India's Test skipper, fell short of his 38th ODI half-century by five runs. Kohli added 79-runs with Ajinkya Rahane, before the partnership was broken in the 20th over as Kohli found an outside edge to Ish Sodhi's delivery and it was BJ Watling to grabbed the ball quite comfortably.
Skipper MS Dhoni disappointed the local fans managing a sedate 11 off 31 balls before Jimmy Neesham cleaned him up. (Source: PTI)
New Zealand pacer Tim Southee, who finished with three wickets, and Trent Boult (2/40) were again on the money, so was Neesham (2/38) donning the third seamer's role to perfection. Southee was New Zealand's key figure with the ball. (Source: PTI)
