India vs New Zealand Fifth ODI

Wellington ODI: India lose by 87 runs; IND-NZL:0-4(5/5)

New Zealand defeated India by 87 runs in the final ODI to complete a 4-0 drubbing. Ross Taylor made his 2nd-straight century and Kane Williamson his 5th consecutive fifty as the kiwis made 303/5. Chasing the mammoth Kiwis total, India's batting floundered miserably again after they slumped to 30/3 with debutant Matt Henry picking up two wickets. They finished up all out for 216.

Reported earlier: With the 5-match series conceded, the ODI World Champions - who are yet to taste a win in 2014 after two overseas series and seven games - are looking to salvage some pride by attempting to win the final ODI of the series at Wellington.

India vs New Zealand Fourth ODI

Hamilton ODI: Taylor’s unbeaten ton helps New Zealand seal series; IND-NZL:0-3(4/5)

Former skipper Ross Taylor's unbeaten ninth One-Day International hundred - 112 not out alongside captain Brendon McCullum (49 not out) - helped New Zealand seal the series against India with a seven-wicket win at Hamilton on Tuesday. Chasing a tricky target of 279, Taylor shared a 130-run third wicket partnership with Kane Williamson (60), who scored his fourth consecutive fifty, to help the Black Caps reach the target with 11 balls to spare as India slumped to their second consecutive series defeat overseas.

India, which rested Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina and chose to bat first after winning toss, scored 278/5 in their 50 overs. Rohit rebuilt the innings with a 94-ball 79, before Skipper Dhoni (79 not out) and Jadeja (62 not out) produced a magnificent late onslaught, putting on a fighting 127-run stand for the unbroken sixth wicket, after India were in a bit of trouble early on, losing their top order quickly.

India XI: Stuart Binny (replaces Dhawan), RG Sharma, V Kohli, Ambati Rayudu (replaces SK Raina), AM Rahane, MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, Varun Aaron, Mohammed Shami

India vs New Zealand, 4th ODI: New Zealand 280/3 in 48.1 ov (Kane Williamson 60, Ross Taylor 112*) beat India 278/5 (R Sharma 79, Dhoni 79*, Jadeja 62*)

India vs New Zealand Third ODI

Auckland ODI: It's a TIE! IND-NZL:0-2(3/5)

Ravindra Jadeja smashed 15 runs from the last over when India had only one wicket in hand, and still needing 18 runs to overtake New Zealand's 50-over total of 314. Jadeja's 66* off 45 balls including a six and a couple of fours in the last over bowled by allrounder Corey Anderson - who, until then was the Kiwi star with the ball having taken his maiden five-wicket haul (5 for 63) - meant India tied the scores and stayed alive in the five match series.

New Zealand seemed to have the match in their control when they reduced India to 79 for four, but the counter-attack initiated by Ms Dhoni's half-century, and carried on by R Ashwin (65 off 46) gave Jadeja a chance to see India through. Well, almost. Jadeja and Ashwin put on 85 runs in a critical partnership.

Earlier, India won the toss, and elected to field. New Zealand's 50-over total of 314 was made possible by an innings of 111 from opener Martin Guptill.

India XI: S Dhawan, RG Sharma, V Kohli, SK Raina, AM Rahane, MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, Varun Aaron (replaces I Sharma), Mohammed Shami
New Zealand XI: MJ Guptill, JD Ryder, KS Williamson, LRPL Taylor, BB McCullum (Captain), CJ Anderson, L Ronchi (Wicket Keeper), NL McCullum, TG Southee, Hamish Bennett (replaces Kyle Mills), MJ McClenaghan
India vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI: India 314/9 (Jadeja 66*, Ashwin 65, Dhoni 50, Anderson 5-63) tied with New Zealand 314 (Guptill 111, Williamson 65)

India vs New Zealand Second ODI

Hamilton ODI: India lose No. 1 ranking as Kiwis win by 15 runs; IND-NZL:0-2(2/5)

Australia regained the No. 1 spot in ICC ODI rankings, as Brendon McCullum-led New Zealand registered a 15-run win by D/L method over India in Hamilton. With this win, New Zealand has a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Chasing a revised target of 293 from 42 overs, a 39-ball 62-run fifth-wicket stand between Suresh Raina (22-ball 35) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (44-ball 56) gave India hope, but they marginally fell short. Earlier, Virat Kohli (65-ball 78) set the tone for India's chase, and added a 90-run stand with Rahane for the third wicket. Tim Southee (4 for 72) and Corey Anderson (3 for 67) were the pick of the bowlers for the Kiwis. India needed 20 from 3 balls when the rain came down and the umpires awarded the game to the hosts.

India XI: S Dhawan, RG Sharma, V Kohli, SK Raina, AM Rahane, MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, I Sharma, Mohammed Shami

India vs New Zealand First ODI

Napier ODI: NZ win by 24 runs; IND-NZL:0-1(1/5)

New Zealand secured a narrow 24-run victory over India in the first one-day international as Kane Williamson hit 71 and Anderson scored 68 off 40 before Mitchell McClenaghan took four wickets to put the Kiwis 1-0 up in the series. It was New Zealand's first win in seven ODIs against India. For the visitors, Virat Kohli scored his 18th century becoming the fastest batsman in the world to reach the milestone in 119 innings. The previous best was Sourav Ganguly's, reaching the milestone in 174 innings.

The world's No.1 ODI side crumbled from 224/4 to be all out for 268 in 48.2 overs, even though Kohli and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni constructed a 95-run partnership for the fifth wicket, and was looking well set for a win. India at one time required only 70 off eight overs and had six wickets in hand, but McClenaghan took the wickets of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in one over, and Kohli in the next, to turn the game New Zealand's way.

India XI: S Dhawan, RG Sharma, V Kohli, SK Raina, AM Rahane, MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, I Sharma, Mohammed Shami
New Zealand XI: MJ Guptill, JD Ryder, KS Williamson, LRPL Taylor, BB McCullum (Captain), CJ Anderson, L Ronchi (Wicket Keeper), NL McCullum, TG Southee, AF Milne, MJ McClenaghan
India vs New Zealand, 1st ODI: New Zealand 292/7 (Williamson 71, Anderson 68*, Taylor 55, Shami 4-55) beat India 268 (Kohli 123, Dhoni 40, McClenaghan 4-68) by 24 runs
