After completely dominating the Blackcaps in the first three ODIs, the Men in Blue looked out of colour when they came out to play against New Zealand in the fourth ODI at Seddon Park, Hamilton on Thursday.
Kane Williamson's decision to bowl first proved costly for India as Kiwi pacer Trent Boult produced one of the best spells of his bowling career, picking up Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Kedar Jadhav, and Hardik Pandya and finishing with stunning figures 10-4-21-5.
Boult's five-fer and Colin de Grandhomme's tight spell (10-2-26-3) reduced seven Indian batsmen to a single-digit score, and the top scorer for the visitors came in India's number 10 Yuzvendra Chahal who scored 18 (37).
India were all out for a measly 92 runs in 30.5 overs, registering their lowest ODI total in New Zealand.
