That's a wrap from us! India now lead the series 2-1. To summarise, India had a solid start with both openers scoring over 50 runs. Virat, MS Dhoni and Rayudu managed to finish with 40+ runs. A score of 350+ runs was considered ideal but 324 proved to be just as effective. New Zealand never looked threatening, losing wickets regularly. The rearguard action by Doug Bracewell was pleasing, as that was the only time the Kiwis looked good with the bat. It was a one-sided match yet again and we hope the next match is more interesting. The third match will be the decider for this series and hopefully, it'll be a good show for both teams.
Thank you for tuning in to In.com. Bye!

That's the second time in as many matches that New Zealand has been thoroughly outclassed by India. The Kiwis might have to rethink their strategies and maybe even rejig their squad before the next match. This was a very one-sided match with India dominating the proceedings throughout.
