Rohit speaks

One of our worst performances with the bat for a long time. Something we didn’t expect. You got to give credit to the NZ bowlers. It was a magnificent effort. Something to learn for us. At times, you need to apply pressure. We need to blame ourselves for it. Thing were looking good at that stage. It was about applying ourselves. Once you get in, things will start to look easier. We played some bad shots as well. It’s always challenging when the ball is swinging. Having a good run in the limited formats for a number of series. Everyone knows what went wrong. There will be times when it swings and we need to deal with it. When you are playing for your country, you try to give your best. We need to keep ticking the boxes.

Trent Boult, Man of the Match

Nice to see the ball moving around, made the most of it. Nice to chase it down as well. It swung around nicely; pretty satisfying. To make most of it is another thing. It was good fun, nice to bowl them out cheaply. I tried to pitch it up as much as possible. It was tough (going 0-3 down), but to pull it back is satisfying. I’m not sure. I’ll have lunch and enjoy the win.

Taylor gets the job done

He has raced away to 37 runs and the match is done and dusted. India never arrived and the hosts have romped all over them. The tone was set by Trent Boult and the swinging ball up front. 5 wickets and he blew away India for 92. It was never going to be enough. Bhuvneshwar nipped out two wickets at the top, but Taylor and Nicholls breezed away to a dominant win. India have the series, but New Zealand have ticked many boxes today.

10:52 hrs IST

Bang, bang goes Taylor

2 sixes over mid-wicket and now New Zealand are sprinting towards the target. It has been a forgettable day for India and they would want to get off the park as soon as possible

10:49 hrs IST

New Zealand edging close

Nicholls peels off a glorious cover drive and New Zealand have come quite close to the target. Can India pick up few wickets to gain some momentum to take to the final match?

10:40 hrs IST

The ball is still moving around

Had India managed to score 150, things could have been more competitive as the ball is still wobbling around. Pandya is posing few excellent questions at the moment

10:23 hrs IST

Williamson departs

Lovely bowling, in the channel, seaming away, Williamson hangs his bat out and the ball takes the outside edge. Dinesh Karthik accepts the catch with glee. Brilliant from Bhuvneshwar, top class bowling

10:13 hrs IST

Nicholls, Williamson look positive

Bhuvneshwar Kumar looks good with the ball, but there is Kane to ward off the threat. Nicholls is looking to go after Khaleel who has not yet hit his stride

9:58 hrs IST

Guptill departs

6, 4, 4 in the first three balls and New Zealand are up and running. And Bhuvi gets Guptill after the first 3 balls. Well, action for sure. Length ball on the stumps, Guptill wants to turn it away, ball takes the back of the bat and carries to point. India on the board, they need to believe they can still win this

9:48 hrs IST

Neesham strikes, India folds

That will be that. Full ball on the stumps, Khaleel makes room and the ball collects the stumps. India have been rolled over for 92 runs. Trent Boult was the star with the ball and had the ball on a string, perfect shape and swing and bowled 10 wickets on the trot. He picked up 5 wickets and India never really got going. They have beaten the ignominy of scoring their lowest score in ODI cricket and that was perhaps the only positive

9:38 hrs IST

Kuldeep sweeps and departs

He was looking good, but then Kuldeep decided to get down low and sweep the full ball away, top edges it and Colin de Grandhomme takes the catch at deep square leg

9:27 hrs IST

Kuldeep, Chahal sticking it out

Kuldeep is looking to play his strokes, Chahal is playing and missing, but they are willing to stick it out. Can they get to 100

9:05 hrs IST

Hardik takes the walk back

Well, Boult was in his final over and why not, bangs one in, takes the glove of Hardik and Latham takes the catch with a beaming smile. 5-wicket haul for Boult and he has been absolutely sensational. India have been blown away

8:51 hrs IST

Bhuvi has been bowled

Colin has angled one ball back in, Bhuvi looks to drive, feet nowhere close to the ball and the ball sneaks between bat and pad and has dislodged the stumps. 54 runs is India’s lowest score, will this score go past that?

8:49 hrs IST

Boult has been relentless

It is a hot day in Hamilton and the Kiwi has been relentless. Kept running in for over an hour now and has wheeled away for 8 overs. He has given away 9 runs and has picked up 4 wickets. This ball is still moving around and is also sticking in the surface

8:34 hrs IST

Boult bossing it

Length ball seaming back in. Jadhav plonks his front foot and then looks to play all across it, ain’t happening. Ball takes the pads and he has to depart. He takes the review and consumes that too. Boy, India have been blown away by Boult. This is a collapse, an unprecedented one

8:27 hrs IST

Oh dear, Gill takes the walk back

India have been blown away against the seam and swing. Boult has been one fire and the extra over has taken care of young Shubman Gill who has offered a simple straight forward catch to Trent Boult on his follow through. 5 down already. Excellent bowling by Boult, excellent captaincy by Williamson

8:21 hrs IST

Calamity for India

Length ball and seaming away, Karthik plonks his front foot and fiddles, the outside edge is taken and Tom Latham accepts the catch with glee. Things a swinging ball can do, India are on the mat and New Zealand are romping all over them at the moment. Colin de Grandhomme gets 2 in one over

8:18 hrs IST

Rayudu departs

Driving on the up, Rayudu has spooned a catch to Martin Guptill at short cover who leaps and takes the catch smartly. India are in some real trouble here. This is going to be interesting

8:15 hrs IST

Sensational spell from Boult

After a few crisp strokes, Gill was hit on the helmet by Boult and this has made him a little uneasy against the craft of Boult who is getting the ball to move around enough to trouble him

8:06 hrs IST

Rohit departs

Excellent bowling from Boult. Length ball seaming back in, Rohit bunts is back to Boult who takes the catch on his follow-through. The swing is creating trouble. How good is the middle order now, sans Virat Kohli?

7:55 hrs IST

Boult strikes

Lovely bowling, great set-up. He kept pitching the ball up on the off stump and dragged Shikhar Dhawan out and then gets one to nip back in. Dhawan falls over and has been pinned in front of the stumps. India jolted early

7:44 hrs IST

Dhawan has hit the ground running

A lash through point and then the upper cut over third man for the maximum, Dhawan has hit the ground running in just the perfect manner. His bigger test will be against Boult who will get the ball to shape away from him

7:37 hrs IST

Watchful start

Boult and Henry with the new ball have hit the right areas and Rohit and Dhawan are prepared to be patient. There is a hint of swing on offer at the moment

7:30 hrs IST

Out walk the openers

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have walked out. Matt Henry with the new ball. Simon Doull believes this ball will swing in the early phase of the innings.

7:09 hrs IST

Playing XIs

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, K Khaleel Ahmed

New Zealand (Playing XI): M Guptill, H Nicholls, K Williamson, R Taylor, T Latham, J Neesham, M Santner, C de Grandhomme, T Astle, M Henry, T Boult

7:07 hrs IST

Kane wins the toss, NZ bowl first

Kane Williamson has also made 3 changes. India have a couple of changes, Gill for Kohli and Khaleel for Shami.

MS Dhoni is still unfit and misses out

7:00 hrs IST

What about the pitch, skipper?

6:48 hrs IST

Shubman Gill debuts

It’s official. Proud moments for the young man

6:47 hrs IST

Rohit on the cusp of records

So far, Rohit has slammed 215 sixes in ODIs for India and he is tied at the top spot with wicket-keeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Both the batsmen will have the chance to move ahead of the other in the fourth ODI but one would feel it is Rohit who has the better chance to do so considering he opens the innings for the ‘Men in Blue’.

6:40 hrs IST

Hello and welcome

Captain Rohit Sharma will stride out as the leader of the side in his 200th ODI for India and with his side in sublime form would look to extend his impressive captaincy record. There could be new faces included in the team which makes it all the more interesting.

New Zealand, on the other hand, will have to cobble up a combination to be competitive and push this Indian side harder. Ain’t no dead rubbers in International cricket.

Good morning and welcome to the live coverage of the 4th ODI match between India and New Zealand.
