as it happened
India, who played with only five bowlers, were missing a sixth option and will surely consider him before picking their XI in the next match, which they have to win now to keep the three-match series alive.
Debutant Umran Malik was the pick of the Indian bowlers with figures of 2/66 but it was a forgettable day for the other debutant Arshdeep Singh as he went wicketless for 68 runs in 8.1 overs. Shardul Thakur Was the second wicket taker in his 9 over spell of 1/63.
This is only the second time that New Zealand have successfully chased down a target of over 300 against India in ODIs.

It was New Zealand’s 13th consecutive ODI win at home, their longest ODI win at home and also Latham’s highest career ODI score.
New Zealand came out to bat first, India got Shreyas Iyer (80), captain Shikhar Dhawan (72) and Shubman Gill (50), with an unbeaten 16-ball 37 by Washington Sundar, to post a challenging 306/7 on the board.
Sundar’s big hit put India in the stands at the death and allowed the visitors to flourish in the last five overs to cross the 300-run total.
Earlier, it was a 124-run opening partnership between Dhawan and Gill that laid the foundation for India after an early struggle against a disciplined New Zealand pace attack.

Gill was dismissed by Lockie Ferguson’s bowling matt henryAfter which the Indian openers tried to improve the run-rate and looked for boundaries.
India completed 100 runs in the 21st over. However, just after reaching his fifty, Gill was dismissed by Ferguson. It turned into a double whammy when Dhawan too fell in quick succession as he hit Tim Southee straight to Finn Allen at point. At that point the score read 124/2.
After pushing a length delivery from Southee, Pant made his mark with a four over the deep third-man region, Iyer upper-cut off Ferguson to start his innings.
When on 11, Iyer was offered a life by Latham after the batsman attempted a ramp shot against a short delivery from Milne.

Pant went for the pull but dragged it onto his stumps, walking back for 15. Suryakumar Yadav gets off the mark with a cover drive for four. But two balls later, he pulled back a long walk, having Ferguson caught by Allen at first slip.
Iyer and Sanju Maison (36 from 38 balls) shared a 94-run partnership to steady the ship, until the latter fell to a brilliant catch by Glenn Phillips.
This was followed by a performance from Washington Sundar, who hit three fours and as many sixes in his 16-ball innings.
With this win, New Zealand have now taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. India had earlier won the rain-affected three-match T20I series 1-0.
