NZ vs IND, 5th ODI, New Zealand v India ODI Series 2019, 03 Feb 2019
India won by 35 runs
BALL BY BALL
Boult flashes hard, looking to scythe it over backward point. The ball flies off the edge, and loops down the throat of third man. India seal the victory, and win the series 4-1. Ambati Rayudu and Vijat Shankar's vital partnership was the game changer. Two very important knocks for India on their way to setting 252. With the ball, they were able to take wickets regularly, and always have the hosts just behind the game. Overall, a deserved victory for the visitors. An excellent ODI series from these two teams, and no doubt the T20Is will be just as good. They begin on Wednesday.

Ov 44: W 0 1 6 6 0 ( 13 Runs, 1 Wkt )
43.6 - H Pandya to M Henry
Off cutter yorker, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
He goes again! Terrific from Matt Henry. In the slot, and carted over deep square leg.
43.5 - H Pandya to M Henry
Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs.
Henry needs a few lusty blows now, and delivers here. Takes on the bouncer, and swipes it over mid wicket for six. Struck that flat and hard.
43.4 - H Pandya to M Henry
Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
43.3 - H Pandya to T Boult
Yorker, middle stump backing away pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Shankar.
43.2 - H Pandya to T Boult
Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
That's pretty unlucky. Santner has to drag himself off the field, though. Clipped nicely off the toes, and it would've flown to the fence had he not picked out short fine leg. Shami doesn't move, and snaps it up with ease.
43.1 - H Pandya to M Santner
Half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, to short fine leg, by Shami.
