Brendon McCullum - Says it's probably the best series they have won. They are delighted with the win. Respectful how the Indian team played and looking forward to the Tests. The way Matt Henry came in and played the game pretty comfortably was admirable and admits it's been certainly one of the amazing aspects. Knows the country has seen Ross play like this over the last couple of months and they enjoy how Ross is. Applauds Williamson for his batting too. Thanks the fans, admits they are not that consistent but will look to be consistent now.

!

MS Dhoni - Applauds that throughout the series New Zealand played very good cricket. And feels that they batted really well, starting off slowly but built partnerships. Adds they have done it in almost each and every game. Says it's important to improvise very quickly. From the talent point of view India have a good bunch of players. Opines overall it's a good talented side and it will be an interesting Test series. It will be a test of character and he is looking forward to it.

!

Man of the Match - Ross Taylor. Says it's been a great series all around. The way Kane Williamson set the platform, the way he has went on with his innings. It's been outstanding, admits they have played some different games. Reckons 300 on that wicket was always going to be competitive. Credits the way Henry came in and bowled. Four wickets on debut is a good effort. Admits on Thursday it will be a different ball game.

!

New Zealand were consistent throughout in the series. Their batsmen did the job and their bowlers defended the targets. India came to New Zealand being number one in the ICC ODI rankings but now have lost that spot as they lost the series 0-4.

!

Debutant Henry was the pick of the bowlers with a 4-wicket haul. What a start for the youngster. Mills created the early pressure and finished picking up two wickets.

!

NEW ZEALAND WIN THE 5-MATCH SERIES 4-0! A comprehensive victory for the Kiwis! The Indians were never into the chase as they lost early wickets from the start. New Zealand kept applying the pressure and didn't give them time to rebuild. Virat Kohli once again looked as the lone warrior. Dhoni put up a fight too but it was just too much.
