India’s total of 276 looked enough, and New Zealand were out of contention at 169 for 8 after 36 overs before a quick ninth-wicket partnership of 67 between Nathan McCallum and Kyle Mills offered them a glimpse of hope.

But McCallum’s dismissal in the 45th over left India the easy winners.

Brief scores: India 276 all out in 49 overs; New Zealand 236 all out in 45.2 overs
