    So then, just the 10 balls to knock these runs off! It ends a comprehensive and a very dominant performance from the hosts! A thumping win to be honest against the number one ranked side in the world. Right from the word go, it was the Kiwis who bossed this game.

    Earlier in the innings, India came out to bat with a deficit of 183. Except for Agarwal, the top-order failed to show any fight. Rahane and Vihari however, showed some character towards the end of Day 3 but all that effort went down the drain today morning as the last five wickets fell in quick time. So the target is 9, how many overs will New Zealand take to chase this down? 2, 3 or will they do it in the first over itself? We will find out in a bit.

    For the Kiwis, it was the old pair of Boult and Southee that wrecked havoc in the Indian batting line-up. The former finished with a four-fer and the latter with a fifer. They were smart, bowled to a plan and it all went great for them. Jamieson went wicket less. Colin de Grandhomme though did have one to his name.

  • 5:24 AM IST

    So New Zealand are probably a few overs away from taking a 1-0 lead in this series! An excellent performance by the bowlers have ensured this game does not last for more than one session on Day 4. Boult and Southee got rid of the overnight batters within the first 5 overs of the day. Pant and Ishant then forged a stand and took India into the lead. The two though fell in quick succession and Bumrah also did not show a lot of fight. Poor by India actually, they surrendered quite easily today. A fight was actually expected of them but they have been bowled out in just over an hour.

    80.6 Tim Southee to Jasprit Bumrah, out, OUT! CAUGHT! That is a ruppa from Mitchell, the substitute! A one-hander. Also, FIFER FOR SOUTHEE. He has taken 9 for the game. An excellent performance from the veteran. He has really led from the front. He bowls a full ball here outside off, Bumrah looks to guide it down to third man but it goes uppishly to the right of Daryl who sticks his right hand out and low. It sticks. INDIA HAVE BEEN BOWLED OUT FOR 191! NEW ZEALAND 9 RUNS TO WIN!
