Vijay Shankar made 27 off 18 and former captain MS Dhoni hung around and hit 39 off 31, but it was a task too tough for even the most expert of finishers.

Tim Southee, who was dropped for the last three ODI's against India, marked his return to the side with three for 17 off his four overs. Chasing a mammoth 220-run target for victory, the Indian batsmen failed to show fight against a disciplined Kiwi bowling attack as the entire team was bowled out for 139 runs in 19.2 overs.

During this period, India consecutively won 10 bilateral T20I series.
