Legspinner Amit Mishra took 5 wickets for 18 runs. In this match, India won the five-match ODI series 3-2 and won a fabulous 190-run victory in the final game.
This was a perfect Diwali gift for Indian cricket fans, because Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men did the work of demolition in style because the spinners committed the black cap with their lowest score against India in ODIs.
He said, "It was one of the best performers of the bowlers, it was a game in which the spinners helped a lot, before we used to bowl first, it was always better to bat in the first half. As the dew was, the speed at which the spinners bowled was perfect. "Dhoni said in the post-match presentation ceremony.
"Mishra's beauty is that she bowls at slow pace, so you have time to recover as a keeper, and together with Ezra (Patel), who bowls flat and fast, it was very good."
Dhoni also made fun of his deputy Virat Kohli for a 65-ball 76 ball, which, according to him, set a platform for six wickets for 269 runs on difficult wickets.
"I think Virat (Kohli) was brilliant with the bat, we got off to a good start. When Rohit (Sharma) got injured, the message was that if you think that you can not move forward, then just your Playing shots, once Kohli was out), Rohit gave us some pace, we felt that it was a tough wicket to rotate independently.When we decided to play big shot, we realized that 270 Were cross-but It was necessary to look at the dew factor, "he said."
Dhoni said that the five-match series provided the right side for the Indian team management to test some youngsters.
"We are happy that we can rest some of the key players, some big test series is coming up. I think batsmen like Kedar Jadhav, Ekar Patel and Manish Pandey have got a lot of experience."
He said, "It is difficult to get full product in international cricket so that new players should be given time to grow."
New Zealand captain Ken Williamson termed his performance as "dreadful"
"Without a doubt, the total was equal to the total, India played really well throughout the series, it is very difficult for us to see today's performance. You expect to do a good performance whether we win or lose and today we Were awesome. "Williamson said.
"We expect too much of our batting, and lose 8 for 20 or whatever is unacceptable. Playing against one of the best sides in the world is a place for learning. It is important lessons, but it is important that we take them in. Although disappointment after this kind of performance is very fresh.Test series was extremely difficult, to come in this one-day series, Prahlad, we have given a tough competition in some hard surfaces. A good effort, "Williamson said.
They said, "We pride ourselves on learning to play, and today we do not show that." There were so many people who did their best, someone like Tom Latham with Bat and Mitchell Sentner's all round work. Done. "
Man of the match as well as Man of the Series, selected for his 15 wickets on the average of 14.33, Mishra, who was chosen as the man of the series, today gave credit to Dhoni for his superb performance.
He said, "If I perform like this then it is very good for the team, they have supported me during tough stages. In the beginning, I was in a little tense, but Dhoni told me to calm down, Bowl on the wickets, and thanks for that, it's all good, "he said.
The pitch was bounce and spin, so bowling slowly, bowling generally worked for me. (India's coach) Anil Kumble also talked about me before the match, to rely on my strength, to rely on flying balls.
"Axar Patel is also doing well, and if the new guys continue to do this then it will be good for India, I'm very happy with the way I am bowling, hopefully I will stay ahead. I can. "
