New Zealand Beat India By 19 Runs In Ranchi; Series Levelled At 2-2

 

With the series up for grabs when India locked horns with New Zealand in the fourth ODI of the five-match series in Ranchi on Wednesday, the hosts didn’t take most of the opportunity and a modest target of 260 to lose by 19 runs. After being up by 2-1 with an emphatic win in Mohali, India were all set to chase another target but that didn’t materialise with the hosts collapsing in the middle of the innings. There was late run scoring from the tail but it proved to be too little too late as India lost and made things interesting for the final ODI in Vishakhapatnam.
