New Zealand beat India by 7 Wickets complete Test series whitewash

India captain Virat Kohli was left frustrated and deflated as New Zealand won the second Test inside three days in Christchurch on Monday to sweep the series.

India started the day at 90 for six and were all out for 124, before New Zealand chased down the required 132 to win for the loss of three wickets in 36 overs.

It ended a disappointing tour for India and Kohli as New Zealand, who won the first Test by 10 wickets early on day four, wrapped up the series with ease.

Trent Boult and Tim Southee shone with the ball, openers Tom Latham and Tom Blundell notched up a half-century each to help New Zealand beat India by seven wickets in the second and final Test of the two-match series at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Monday.

The Indian lower order, unlike New Zealand, failed to show any resistance and lost their remaining four wickets inside 34 runs.

India were eventually bundled out cheaply for 124 runs in their second innings to set a 132-run target for the Black Caps.

In reply, Tom Latham (52) and Tom Blundell (55) not only brought up half-centuries but also stitched a 103-run partnership for the opening wicket to bring New Zealand closer to win before Ross Taylor (5) and Henry Nicholls (5) helped their side cross the mark in 36 overs
