Well, it's a wrap here! India comprehensively beat New Zealand for the third time in a row to clinch the series 3-0. The highlight of the day was Ross Taylor's resilient batting and Tom Latham giving him company. New Zealand's batsmen failed yet again and only three of them managed to get over 15 runs. Hardik Pandya picked up two wickets, as did Chahal and Kumar. Shami bagged 3. In reply, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli anchored the Indian innings for the most part, before Dinesh Karthik and Ambati Rayudu saw things through. The next two matches will have Rohit Sharma leading the side as Kohli goes on a break.

What an achievement for India! The last time India won a series in New Zealand was in 2009, when MS Dhoni was leading the side. Back then Virat Kohli wasn't even a part of the squad.

Game over! And what an anti-climax! The winning runs came off a wide bouncer that went over the keeper and to the ropes. India win by 7 wickets.

And Dinesh Karthik just slammed a six, followed by a couple, and then a boundary.
