Williamson scored the New Zealanders' first century of the tour as the tourists made 242 for 9 after being asked to bat first.

In reply India was bowled out for 236 in the last over with Tim Southee taking 3 wickets and Trent Boult and Martin Guptill two each.

Boult went for just 25 runs from his 10 overs.

Williamson went to the crease in the first over and didn't leave until the 43rd after scoring 118 from 128 balls.

He was the only batsman in the game to get over 50.

"The wicket wasn't easy to increase the scoring rate, at the halfway stage we were a few off where we wanted to be, a lot of credit to the way we bowled, to create pressure on that surface was key and Trent Boult was outstanding," Williamson said.

"The bowling was huge for us," he said.

"We were below par but we did have enough runs to create a squeeze... The dew didn't help the spinners and they did a great job - there wasn't much turn but they did great for us."

"Seam bowling was easier to face on that surface. It was a good game of cricket, credit to India, they fought all the way."

The five-match series is now level at one-all, with game three scheduled to be played in Mohali on Sunday.
