A Ross Taylor century gave New Zealand a series win over India with a game to spare in the 5 match series.

India batting first scored 278/5 at Seddon Park in reply the Kiwis led by a brilliant 112 not out by Taylor chased down the total with 11 balls to spare. He received sound support from Kane Williamson 60 as they rebuilt the innings and then from Brendon McCullum 49 not out, who finished the match with a colossal six.

New Zealand 280 for 3 (Taylor 112* Williamson 60, B McCullum 49*) beat India 278 for 5 (Dhoni 79*, Rohit 79, Jadeja 62*) by seven wickets
