India vs New Zealand 5th ODI Highlights: India Beat New Zealand By 35 Runs To Win Series 4-1
Highlights: India vs New Zealand 5th ODI: Ambati Rayudu was adjudged player of the match for scoring 90 runs.
India defeated New Zealand by 35 runs in the 5th and final ODI at the Westpac stadium in Wellington to win the ODI series 4-1. The hosts were bundled out for 217 runs in 44.1 overs. The early strikes by Mohammed Shami helped India take control early in the match. Hardik Pandya then removed Ross Taylor when the scoreboard read 38/3. Kane Williamson and Tom Latham then put up a fighting 67-run partnership for the fourth-wicket. Williamson was dismissed for 39 off 73 balls by Kedar Jadhav. Following the quick dismissals of Williamson and Latham, it was James Neesham who looked dangerous to take the game away from India's grasp. But it was a brilliant presence of mind by wicket-keeper MS Dhoni who inflicted a run out after an LBW appeal against Neesham was turned down by the umpire. Following the wicket of Neesham, the New Zealand tailenders failed to add much to the total. Earlier, India recovered from 18/4 to score 252 runs with the help of Ambati Rayudu's 90 and a quickfire 45 by Hardik Pandya towards the end. Rayudu and Vijay Shankar shared a 98-run partnership for the fifth-wicket. (SCORECARD)

06:40 IST: Hello and welcome to out live coverage of the fifth and final Test of the five-match ODI series between India and New Zealand in Wellington.
Assistant coach Sanjay Bangar confirmed that Dhoni is fit and available for the game. Dhoni's calmness in anchoring the innings will be priceless and young Shubman Gill might make the way in the playing XI as the World Cup preparations hit full swing. The Hamilton match was an eye opener where Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav and Dinesh Karthik failed to prove a point that they can stand up and be counted if Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan fail on a given day with Kohli also not around. With the three-match T20I series ahead and also the World Cup round the corner, India will have to address this weakness to ensure that their much-vaunted batting doesn't crumble on an odd day when the condition aids swing bowling in England. Rohit has already described it as ''one of the worst batting performances" by the team and he would like to lead by example by quickly getting over the disappointment with another fiery opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan on Sunday. Having returned from provisional suspension post his loose talk on a TV chat show, Hardik Pandya gave ample display of his importance in the ODI team and he will look to continue to deliver.
