India outclassed by NZ: Dhoni

4:12 pm on 2 February 2014

The India cricket captain MS Dhoni concedes they were outclassed by New Zealand's consistent middle order batting, as the Black Caps sealed a 4-0 one day series win in Wellington on Friday.

And following the 87-run win in the fifth and final match, New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum says he rates the triumph over India - the reigning World Cup holders - as the most satisfying one day series victory of his international career.

The Black Caps posted 303 for five and then dismissed the tourists for 216.

Ross Taylor was player of the match with a second consecutive hundred while Kane Williamson made 88, his fifth straight half century of the series.

Dhoni says the pair were a dominating influence.
