It’s the last and final ODI of the series in which New Zealand will be playing for at least a match win against India as they already lost nine consecutive matches and India will be looking for a clean sweep against the Kiwis.

As expected the Indian bowlers gained advantage from the wicket as the New Zealand openers fell in quick sessions leaving the Kiwis in a drastic situation.

J How and Styris were the only batsmen to get into a score of twenties. James Franklin carries his good form from the previous innings and was unbeaten at 17 and could not score further as he lacked he support from any other batsman on the other side. With this very poor batting from the Kiwis the black caps only managed to post a score of 103 in 27 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin got three wickets in his eight overs and Y Singh, Pathan and Nehra picked two wickets each. P Kumar bowled a decent spell with on wicket.

Chasing a low score of 103, the Indian captain got out in the third ball of the innings. At a vey short period of time after the dismissal of Gambhir, Virat Kohli got dismissed by Vettori leaving India in a tigh situation. Yuvraj Singh was the next batsman at the crease, he along with Parthiv Pael played a good innings and looked to be in fine touch. Parthiv Patel scored 56 of 70 balls with six fours and one six in his innings. Yuvraj Singh got 42 runs from 46 balls which included six fours and two sixes. Both of them finished the game for India sweeping the series 5-0. This is the tenth consecutive loss for New Zealand. The young Indian team without the seniors under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir won the series 5-0 against the Black caps and sent out a warning for the other teams that they are strong contenders for the Cricket 2011 World Cup.
