Comprehensive winners in the ODIs (4-1), beaten in the T20Is (2-1). The Indian team departs from the southern hemisphere with a slight feeling of dejection. They though can keep their heads high for the way that they have competed and played all through the 3 months that they spent in Australia and New Zealand. As for the Kiwis, they will be really happy to win the T20I series as it was important that they come back after the nightmare in the ODIs. They will head into the next assignment against a visiting Bangladesh side with confidence. The Men in Blue head back to their homeland and welcome the Aussies for a limited-over series. It has been great fun bringing you all the action. Hope you have enjoyed the coverage as well. Until next time, see ya! Take care and cheers!
Kane Williamson, the winning NZ captain says that it was a really competitive and tough series. Reckons that the Indians were really hard to beat and is happy that they have done so. Feels that the series was a short one and was difficult to turn around stuff quickly if the team once fell behind. He informs that he felt that the best performance was in the 4th ODI and in the first T20I, stating this final game was a matter of keeping their nerve. Finally, when asked whether there will be celebrations tonight before the next series, he declines that saying that the nature of international cricket is that games come in thick and fast and people will be looking to cool off in the little time they get before they welcome Bangladesh. He then goes on to collect the trophy for winning the T20I series. Gets surrounded by his teammates as they pose for the cameras.
India's skipper, Rohit Sharma says that he is disappointed that it didn't go their way. Tells that they fought hard but it was always a tough chase. Credits the Kiwis for bowling well. Mentions that there are a lot of positives coming from this tour. Adds that it's disappointing to lose today but they will learn from their mistakes and move ahead. He is sad that they are going home without the T20I trophy but mentions about the positives they gained from their outing here.
Tim Seifert is the Man of the Series and starts off by saying he is happy to have performed well but the main fact is the team winning, especially in a nail-biting way like that. He also says that it was great to bat at the opening spot and share the partnership with Colin Munro. Signs off by saying he is really pleased about the crowd that has turned up and mentions that it feels good when playing in front of a lot of people.
Colin Munro is the Man of the Match! Says it was touch and go and credits his bowlers for doing a great job. Adds that it's pleasing and he didn't try to do anything different. States that he tried to play his game and pressurized the bowlers.
The pitch was a batting paradise and two relatively-unknown faces in Daryl Mitchell and Blair Tickner were the pick of the bowlers. They hit the right lengths under pressure and ensured they did not go for too much, thus also making sure that the Indians who were cruising at one stage came under pressure and got derailed. Even though Southee's final figures were not too impressive, he bowled the all-important final over and ensured that his team went over the line and won the series 2-1. Earlier in the evening, a brilliant 72 from Munro and good knocks from all the other batsmen who came in to bat ensured that New Zealand get to 212. The total was just above par and it proved to be so in the end. Thus, a brilliant game for the decider and the better team won. Presentations to follow...
What a humdinger here at Seddon Park! The 3-month long sojourn though has come to an end with India losing a rare series. The Kiwi total of 212 was just too much in the end. The Indian chase started with Shikhar Dhawan departing early. Rohit Sharma was joined by Vijay Shankar in the middle and they both took the innings forward. The former was playing second-fiddle as his partner went after the bowling. Shankar fell and was replaced by Pant who then carried on that role but not for long. The required rate meant that both batsmen had to go for big runs but the Indian skipper was just unable to do so. He eventually got out after playing a pretty slow knock in the context of the game. Post that, MS Dhoni went early but Dinesh Karthik and the Pandya brothers tried their best. They did manage to scare the Black Caps but fell just short of the mammoth total. The Kiwi bowlers held their nerve to snatch victory, especially Tim Southee in the last over after going for plenty in his previous one.

Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
SIX! But that won't matter much. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 4 RUNS! A length delivery outside off, Karthik gets one from the middle of the bat as he powers it over covers for a maximum. The Kiwis are smiling, a series win for them!
19.6
wd
Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
Wide! A bouncer and it goes above the head of Karthik as he looks to pull it. The square leg umpire signals to his partner that the ball was too high. The bowler and his skipper do not look too happy.

Tim Southee To Krunal Pandya
Hits the stumps at the other end! It's around off, Krunal smashes it straight back and it collides with the sticks at the non-striker's end. Only a run again. Well tried India, but probably it wasn't meant to be.
19.4
1
Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
Hangs back to pump a length ball over mid off but fails to do so. Finds the fielder inside the ring and this time he crosses for a run. Two sixes now needed to take it to a Super Over unless there are any extras.

Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
Didn't run! Fuller in length and outside off, Karthik hammers it down to long on and turns down the run. Krunal there almost ran two on his own. Poor chap. Is DK not aware of Pandya's hitting prowess?
19.2
0
Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
Tough, tough call that! A yorker outside off and Karthik looks to come inside the line and ramp it but then seeing the ball to be outside off, he decides to not play at it. DK leaves it and looks for a wide but it is not given as he was too close to the ball.
19.1

Tim Southee To Dinesh Karthik
Full on the pads here, Karthik flicks it away in the gap to deep mid-wicket for a couple of runs. Great fielding under pressure there.
16 needed off 6 balls. This is tense. Dinesh Karthik is there on strike. Straightaway his heroics in the Nidahas trophy final come in our minds. India needed 12 in the last over then. Can they get 16? Southee to bowl the pressure over...

Scott Kuggeleijn To Krunal Pandya
SIX! That is the best result if you are an Indian fan. A length ball outside off and Kuggeleijn errs on the last ball. Krunal gets the middle of the bat on that one and deposits it way over long on. The previous two balls were slower ones and the Indians had missed out. This one at 144 kph goes the distance. Scott finishes his night with figures of 4-0-37-1.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Dinesh Karthik
Slower one on middle, Karthik mistimes his drive straight back down the ground. Hits the stumps at the bowler's end and picks up a single.
A discussion between the bowler and his captain now. Third man and fine leg have come in. So the bowler has to keep it nice and straight now.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Dinesh Karthik

Tim Southee To Krunal Pandya
FOUR! Inside edged for four. The Indians will not mind how they come as long as they do. A length ball outside off, Krunal goes for the slog but gets an inside edge that runs past Sodhi for a boundary to fine leg. Needed a dive there from Ish.

Blair Tickner To Krunal Pandya
Completely miscues his shot. Tries to fetch a short ball from outside off and pull it over the leg side. Since it's a slower one, he mistimes it towards mid on. A run taken, 11 from the over. 48 off 18 balls, a big task ahead for India.

Blair Tickner To Dinesh Karthik

Daryl Mitchell To Dinesh Karthik
On the middle stump line and slower. Karthik is early into his shot as he looked to swipe this off the front foot. The ball takes the outside edge and goes towards third man for a single. Lucky for DK, if he had missed that one he would have been struck in front. 9 runs off this Mitchell over and the equation is now 59 off 24 balls.

Daryl Mitchell To Dinesh Karthik
Outside off on a length and some away movement! Karthik looks to work it away on the on side coming down the track but is beaten due to the movement. Rare to see this, especially in the 16th over. Karthik, hence has a surprised look on his face.
15.4
6
Daryl Mitchell To Dinesh Karthik
SIX! This one has disappeared. India won't go down without a fight. Mitchell bowls it short around middle and off, Karthik shuffles across to get inside the line and then pulls it all the way over deep backward square leg for a biggie. He has made a reputation of a finisher of late and the Men in Blue will be hoping for some heroics from DK!
15.3

Daryl Mitchell To Dinesh Karthik
Just over mid off! Karthik goes aerial this time to a length ball and manages to loop it over Southee. He does well there to prevent the boundary by putting in a slide near the rope. A couple taken.
Krunal Pandya walks in to bat now.
15.2

Daryl Mitchell To MS Dhoni OUT!
OUT! High in the air and easily taken by Southee at long on. The Kiwis see the end of Dhoni and this is a sight that will hurt the Indian fans. A length ball and MS Dhoni goes for the huge one over long on. Does not get all of it and the ball goes higher rather than far. Holes out at long on. India losing their way now in the chase, still need 68 in 28 balls. Mitchell has really bowled well today in the context of the game, 2 wickets for him so far.

Dinesh Karthik walks in next, at number 7.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Hardik Pandya OUT!
OUT! Bizarre dismissal. Ball is flying, bat is flying, the former is caught which matters the most for the Kiwis. Kuggeleijn digs in a short ball on off at 144 kph, hurries up the batsman with his strong pace. Hardik tries to pull but the bat slips from his hands as it makes contact with the top edge and balloons towards mid off. Kane Williamson moves swiftly across to his right from extra cover and takes the catch safely. The little cameo from Pandya is over but India needed more from him.

OUT! Huge wicket in the context of the game. Rohit was looking out of sorts but everyone knows how dangerous he can be. A good length ball wide of off stump and Sharma goes chasing. The ball takes the outside edge and goes to Seifert who takes a simple catch. No special Hitman show today and New Zealand pick up another wicket. The Indians need 72 runs in 36 balls.
13.5

Daryl Mitchell To Hardik Pandya
Yorker length ball outside off, Hardik reaches out but can only get a single to deep cover for a single. Lets out a grunt after hitting it, maybe he was not too happy about missing that one.

Daryl Mitchell To Hardik Pandya

Daryl Mitchell To Hardik Pandya
FOUR! In the air... but in the gap as well. Hardik must have had his heart in the mouth for a moment there. A low full toss and Pandya whips it away but does not get it too cleanly. The ball flies to the left of deep mid-wicket, luckily for India and goes past the rope on a bounce for a boundary.

Blair Tickner To Rishabh Pant OUT!
OUT! The first international wicket for Tickner and it has come off a full toss. The pressure was building and Pant in a bid to hit out has given it straight to the fielder at mid-wicket. A full toss outside off, Rishabh looks to slog that over cow corner but does not get the elevation. Kane Williamson takes a smart catch and this wicket has come at a really important time. The Indians still need 92 in 46 balls.

OUT! Four and then a wicket. Shankar was just picking up his pace but has to depart now. This ball was not short enough but Shankar went for the sweep initially. He tries to adjust and then hit it over mid-wicket hence does not get true connection. The ball goes only as far as de Grandhomme in the deep who running to his right takes a really good catch. Santner strikes and it is a good time to pick up a wicket.

OUT! Dhawan falls cheaply. A flatter one on middle, Dhawan looks to sweep it away but fails to keep it down. The ball goes in the air towards deep square leg and Daryl Mitchell comes running forward to take a brilliant tumbling catch. There was a slight bobble but he does well to hold on in the end. A massive wicket for the Kiwis early on in the chase.
