In the second match of three-match One Day International series, New Zealand cricket team defeated India cricket team by 22 runs to seal the three-match series 2-0.
India had a shaky start and they failed to recover on time as the team went on to lose five batsmen even before touching 100-run mark. Shreyas Iyer scored a half-century but departed just after achieving the feat. 
Ravindra Jadeja and Navdeep Saini kept the chase alive but Saini succumbed to the pressure, missing his fifty. In his absence, the responsibility was on Jadeja to take team home, he completed his fifty but couldn’t see runs from the other end. Finally, the left-handed batsman ended up getting caught in the deep.
Earlier, Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor smashed half-centuries to power New Zealand cricket team to a competitive 273 for eight at Eden Park Auckland today. Put in to bat, Guptill scored a run-a-ball 79 and alongwith his opening partner Herny Nicholls (41) shared a 93-run partnership but the hosts suffered a collapse, losing five wickets for 26 runs to slip to 197 for 8 at one stage.
Yuzvendra Chahal (3/58) claimed three wickets, Shardul Thakur (2/60) took two wickets, while Ravindra Jadeja (1/35) snapped one and effected a run-out to put the hosts in a spot of bother in the middle but Ross Taylor’s brilliance saw them post a good score. Taylor, who had scored a century in the first ODI, played a unbeaten knock of 73 off 74 balls and added 76 runs with debutant Kyle Jamieson (25 not out) to take New Zealand across the 250-mark.
Earlier, India cricket team made two changes, bringing in Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal in place of Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav.  New Zealand, on the other hand, handed ODI debut to Kyle Jamieson, the country’s tallest bowler standing at six feet, eight inches.
