Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir made it look like a stroll in the park but with the victory target being revised after every rain interruption India's chase in the fourth ODI against New Zealand was far from easy, said victorious captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Sehwag (125) and Gambhir (63) starred in an unbeaten 201-run stand in the tie which witnessed five rain interruptions, three during Indian innings alone.

"It was a difficult chase with the rain interruptions. The way Viru and Gautam batted, it looked easy but it was never easy," Dhoni said after India's series-clinching win here.

The India captain said conditions were not easy to bat on but the spectacular start by Sehwag and Gambhir tilted the match in India's favour.

"The wind was very strong all through. Overall, we got a good start and capitalised on it later on," Dhoni said.
