BALL BY BALL
Ov 20: 0 6 0 6 0 1 ( 13 Runs )
Ish Sodhi couldn't quite pull it off in the last over, so India sneak home to take the series 5-0. It was another one that the home side should've really won. At the halfway point in the chase, they were cruising. Once the partnership between Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor was broken, the Kiwis collapsed. Japsrit Bumrah was fantastic, in particular. Huge credit to India, they have held their nerve in the last three games to restrict the hosts and close out the match. It could've been 3-2 to New Zealand, but the quality of India came up trumps. Both sides will now turn their attention to the fifty over format, which begins on Wednesday.
