Black Caps humiliated in final ODI

7:31 am on 30 October 2016

The New Zealand cricketers have been humiliated by India in their fifth and final one day international in Visakhapatnam overnight, losing by a mammoth 190 runs.

The Black Caps were searching for their first ever series win in any format on Indian soil, but were outclassed by the hosts.

New Zealand managed only 79 runs all out as they tried to chase down India's 269 run total on a slow pitch.

Look back at how the final one-dayer unfolded.

The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first, with opener Rohit Sharma and the in-form Virat Kohli both scoring half centuries to take India to 269 for six in their 50 overs.

But the Black Caps batsmen were no match for India's leg-spinner Amit Mishra, who picked up his second five-wicket haul in one-day internationals to ease the home side to victory.

Only three New Zealanders could reach double figures, with the captain Kane Williamson top-scoring with 27 as his side were bundled out in just 23.1 overs for their lowest ODI score against India.

Williamson's dismissal to Axar Patel, who took two wickets for nine, triggered a collapse which saw New Zealand lose their last seven wickets for 16 runs with Mishra bagging five of them.

Black Caps captain Kane Williamson said they had no one to blame but themselves for losing so many wickets for so few runs.

"The most frustrating thing I think is - certainly as a batting group - to lose eight (wickets) for 20 (runs)... the spinners of the Indian side bowled extremely well but I don't think it justified 8 for 20," Williamson said after the match.

"There was turn throughout some of the other games and we were far better at playing it. Today certainly wasn't our day."

The Black Caps return to New Zealand to host Pakistan for two Tests.
