New Zealand on Tuesday hammered India by seven wickets to take a 3-0 lead in the five-match series, with only one game left to play at Wellington on January 31.

 

Brendon McCullum, elated after his win said, “This is a big moment for us. We are obviously proud with what we achieved in South Africa and England in those one-day series. But this series, they were the number one ODI team in the world when they arrived here and we knew how dominant their batting line-up is. To have tipped them up and be sitting after the fourth game at 3-0 is a pretty good achievement for us,” McCullum said at the press conference.

 

The host now target to win the last match as well.

 

“The last game is also very important and that 4-0 is what we want to strive for. But we won’t let this opportunity to really enjoy what we have achieved pass us by either. I think it’s a hell of an achievement what we have done tonight.
