New Zealand have beaten India by 7 wickets in Christchurch to seal a 2-0 series victory, making a potentially tricky chase of 132 look simple in the end. Arriving at Hagley Oval this morning, the tourists knew they needed a partnership or two to push their lead towards 200 and put the pressure on the Black Caps. Trent Boult and Tim Southee soon thwarted that plan, mopping up the final four wickets cheaply with skilful swing bowling. If there were any nerves in the Kiwi camp they didn't show because Tom Latham and Tom Blundell calmly went about constructing a century partnership to flatten India's hopes. Kyle Jamieson scoops the Player of the Match award for his brilliant allround display, while Tim Southee gets the series award for his superb bowling across both games. Virat Kohli and his team will know that their batting wasn't up to scratch in this Test or the previous one, ultimately that has cost them dearly. It's a welcome return to form for Kane Williamson's men though, they are a formidable unit in home conditions and have jumped up to third place in the World Test Championship table.

Big appeal but India are just clutching at straws now. They take a punt on a review anyway and replays show Jadeja has overstepped. Nicholls didn't edge it in any case.

Kohli elicits a false stroke but Nicholls gets away with it. He will have been worried for a moment there as the ball skewed away.
