So that is it from India's tour of New Zealand. India started on a positive note by pocketing the T20I series 5-0 but were outplayed in the ODIs and Test series that followed as they lost by a margin of 0-3 and 0-2 respectively. Now the cricketing action moves ahead with New Zealand touring their neighbours Australia for a 3-match ODI series which starts on 13th March. India, on the other hand, welcome South Africa for the 3-match ODI series which starts on 12th March. Hope to have your company for those games. Till then take care, cheers and goodbye!
New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson, says that it is an outstanding feeling. Feels that the pitches were sporting for both the games as the bowlers had to bowl on right lines and lengths. Adds that he is really excited seeing Kyle Jamieson and credits him to do so well in his very first series. Credits him for his contributions with both bat and ball. Praises Blundell too and feels that the ball was doing enough and he hung in well. Feels that they got to learn a lot from this series. Finishes off by saying that they are looking forward to their next series when they take on their neighbors, Australia.
The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, starts by saying that it was a matter of not having enough intent and feels that the inability of not winning the important phases didn't help. Tells that their bowlers could not bowl in the right areas for a longer time while the Kiwis executed their plans well. Feels that the batters didn't give enough runs for the bowlers to attack. Tells that it happened in South Africa too and here as well. Feels that they need to go to the drawing room and figure out what went wrong. Adds that the toss do play major roles but adds that they are not a side that gives excuses. Says that they are only taking learnings from this game. On the entire tour, the Indian skipper says that they had a very good T20 series and even in the ODIs, they did well but got outplayed by the Kiwis. And in this series, they failed to play the brand of cricket they wanted to play.
For his brilliant effort of 5/45 in the first innings and his batting efforts lower down the order, Kyle Jamieson is named as the Man of the Match. He says that it has been a good couple of weeks for him. Adds that they played as a unit throughout the series. Feels that the pitch conditions do help but they had to pitch the ball up and then bowl shorter ones too. Mentions that it is time for him to work on his batting too as his partnerships lower down the order made a difference in this game.
After getting a slender lead of 7, India needed efforts from their batters. But that never came. None of the batters could get going. The top order failed, the middle order failed and eventually the side got bowled out for a very small total. Tim Southee and Trent Boult were once again the destructor-in-chief as the duo shared 7 wickets between them. That meant that all the Kiwis needed was 132 to win the series. That eventually was trekked down by the Kiwis quite comfortably. Stay tuned for the presentations...
Coming to the Kiwi innings, they started well with Latham and Blundell adding 66 for the first wicket. However, in the morning session of Day 2, Bumrah and Shami made the ball talk and ripped the Kiwi middle order apart. However, their inability of getting rid of the tail-enders meant that New Zealand came very close to the Indian total as Jamieson and Wagner played valuable knocks.
Now, time for the match summary. After being asked to bat first, India started well on the back of a fine half ton from Shaw. After the dismissal of Shaw, the Indian middle order faltered which included skipper Kohli's wicket too. Pujara and Vihari batted well for their half tons and took India closer to 250. It was Kyle Jamieson who ripped the Indians apart with a fifer and he got support from Tim Southee and Trent Boult as the duo picked 2 each.
Let's talk about Day 3 first. India were just 97 ahead and had 4 wickets in their hands. They needed something big from Vihari and Pant but they failed to deliver as Southee and Boult ran through the lower order of the Indian batting line-up. Needing just 132 runs to win, Tom Latham and Tom Blundell quite comfortably added 103 runs for the opening wicket. India did get 2 more after the first wicket but they were hardly going to change the result.
An easy run chase in the end and the Kiwis thump India convincingly to seal the series 2-0. A thorough professional performance from them. With this win, they move to no. 3 on the ICC World Test Championship points table.

Jasprit Bumrah To Tom Blundell OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! India are not going down without a fight. Bumrah roars in delight there. He was the one who was constantly asking questions at the batters and finally he gets the reward. It is bowled on a length and on off, It is a nip backer as Blundell looks to defend it leaving a big gap between his bat and pad. The ball sneaks through that gap and hits the top of off pole to send it for a cartwheel. The umpire stops the batter as they check for the no ball. The replays roll in and it shows that Bumrah has some part of his heel behind the popping crease. The third umpire to be completely sure sees the replay a few more times and then gives the marching orders for Blundell.

NOT OUT! Umpire's call there. Blundell survives. A good review there by India. Yadav bowls one on a length and on off, it comes a bit into the batter. Blundell goes for the defensive push but gets beaten and is rapped on the pads. There is an appeal from the bowler and his teammates. Kohli thinks about taking a review and then takes it finally. The replays roll in and first the Ultra Edge comes on. It shows that there is daylight as the ball passes the bat. Now comes the Ball Tracker, it shows that the ball in pitching in line, the impact is also in line and then when it hits the stumps it is umpire call as it just clip the bails.
Review time! Tom Blundell is the man in question. Lets see what the replays have to show. Nothing on the Ultra Edge. Ball Tracker now comes in. It shows umpire's call on hitting the stumps.

Welcome back for the second session. Probably, this could be the last session of this match. New Zealand need further 86 runs to seal a 2-0 victory. The two New Zealand openers Tom Latham and Tom Blundell will resume their innings. Also, the Indian players are out on the field. Jasprit Bumrah with the ball first up.
... Day 3, Session 2 ...
If India are to make a match out of it then they need to be spot on with their bowling and fielding there. New Zealand, on the other hand, will want their openers to continue the good work and take them closer to the target. How will the session after Lunch turn out? Who will come on top? Will India end up putting a fight with the ball here or will New Zealand continue their dominance? All the questions will be answered shortly. Do join us at 1410 local (0110 GMT) for the post Lunch session.
Another session that has gone New Zealand's way in this series. They are heading towards the 2-0 scoreline with ease here. In the hour earlier they bundled out India for just 124 as the Indian batting's sorry tale continued. India lost their last 4 wickets quickly as they could add only 34 runs to their overnight score. They could not stand a chance against the New Zealand bowlers as they made them dance to their tunes. Then came New Zealand's chance with the bat as they started their innings in pursuit of the target of 132. The Kiwi openers have looked at ease as compared to their Indian batters as they have already eaten up 46 runs from the target. Indian bowling has been good in patches as Bumrah and Shami have made the ball talk but the luck has not favoured them. Yadav has been disappointing as he has dished out more on the pads and failed to maintain consistent lines and lengths.
