The Black Caps defeat India by 18 runs.
Overnight most onlookers thought New Zealand was a long way off a good score, and that India would cruise to victory today. Instead, some superb bowling from Henry and Boult up top saw India fall to 5/3, then 24/4. A small recovery from Pant and Pandya was muted by Santner before a 116-run partnership between MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja took the game right to the wire.
India had perhaps just left themselves too much to do at the end though, and the pressure to hit boundaries led to the fall of Jadeja, and then the need to get Dhoni back on strike allowed Guptill the chance to run him out and end any real hopes India had, even before completely wrapping up the Indian innings.
Player of the match, Matt Henry
His three early wickets got New Zealand in the driving seat early in the second innings, and he kept it tight towards the end as well, bowling a crucial over just as Jadeja was starting to get on top of the game for India.
More to come.
