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.
