    New Zealand need 12 runs from 2 balls. Southee is the new man in. Another low full toss and Grandhomme sends it straight down the long off fielder for a single. 

    The final ball goes for a boundary but that matters to nothing in the end.

    Jasprit Bumrah to bowl the final over. A key over. Starts off with a beautiful yorker. Grandhomme can only get the bat to the ball. Comes straight back to Bumrah. 

    The second delivery, too, is in the block hole. Results in a single.

    Third delivery of the over goes down to fine leg. Two runs this time.

    New Zealand need 12 runs from 3 balls. It is a full toss and it is straight down Dhawan's throat. New Zealand are 326/7 with Santner dismissed.

    UH-OH! Bad ball by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Not been his day from the start. A bouncer for Santner and he sends it over the boundary line. Brings the equation to 18 runs required from 10 balls

    BIG BIG WICKET FOR INDIA! Tom Latham is caught short at the non-striker's end with combination work from MS Dhoni and Jasprit Bumrah. Excellent yorker by Bumrah to Grandhomme and a panic situation results in the run out. New Zealand are 312/6

    India vs New Zealand Live Cricket Scoret

    Tom Latham and Ross Taylor have New Zealand going at a strong 6.13 runs per over. But the required rate of 9 runs an over is a mountain. A wicket here and the momentum could be India's way. Or one/two good overs, the balance could tip the Kiwis' way.

    India vs New Zealand Live Cricket Score

    India have New Zealand on to 194/3 in 33 overs. Need 144 from 102 balls. Clearly the departure of Kane Williamson and Colin Munro has helped India's cause. Unless Tom Latham and Ross Taylor pick up the pace equally.

    GONE! India needed a breakthrough and Chahal provides it with the wicket of Munro. The Kiwi batsman goes for 75. This one is tossed up slightly, Munro goes for a big hit and a slog shot but doesn't get anything on it. New Zealand are 153/2

    Colin Munro (66) and Kane Williamson (48) have New Zealand in comfortable place. New Zealand are 131/1 in the 21st over. Despite the big target, India will have to work hard to defend this if these two continue unabated.

    Terrible start for India and Bhvuneshwar Kumar. He concedes 19 runs in the first over as Colin Munro goes all guns blazing from the word go. He has Martin Guptill for support. Jasprit Bumrah is on at the other end
