India clinched the ODI series vs New Zealand 4-1 but the 35 run win in Wallington would probably be the most satisfying. Things didn't start according to plan as India's decision to bat first backfired. Top order once again failed to negate the late swing as the visitors found themselves wanting at 18/4. Then began the great Indian fightback. Ambati Rayudu steadied the innings with a gritty 90 before Pandya's 22 ball 45 powered India to 252. And then the bowlers took over. Chahal claimed 3 and 2 wickets each by Panaya & Shami bowled the Kiwis out for 217.
