The rain-hit match witnessed the result on Day six, the reserve day, as most of the match was affected by rain, including a whole day.

In the Day six, it was all about New Zealand as they were on top right from ball one, thanks to their bowlers. Their bowlers didn’t allow any of the Indian batters to settle and none of them had managed to get past fifty.

While Rishabh Pant, after a brilliant start, threw the wicket away and that didn’t go well at all as India tumbled to 170 in the 2nd innings. Chasing only 139, India removed the opener early, thanks to Ashwin. However, the experienced hands of Williamson and Taylor took the team home.

India were sloppy in the field, missed a couple of chances and Williamson-Taylor took it with both hands as they defeated India by eight wickets in the final hour of the play.

New Zealand were right at the toss as well and had opted to bowl first. India, began well, thanks to a quick partnership between Gill and Sharma. After their dismissal, Kohli and Rahane had a good partnership with Kohli scoring 44 and Rahane adding 49. India ended their innings by 217.

In return, 70-run partnership between Latham and Conway helped New Zealand to gain the front seat. However, India bounced back to remove the middle order with Williamson holding the other end. The skipper got out for 49 as New Zealand made 249.

India had Rohit Sharma scoring a cameo once again but he couldn’t convert them to a big score. However, the New Zealand bowlers once again took down the team and helped their batters to chase down a good target.

For New Zealand, Jamieson had five wickets in the first innings and then a couple in the second. In the 2nd, Southee had four wickets and was the pick of the bowlers.
