Riding on the brilliant performance of their pacers, New Zealand on Monday comfortably defeated India by 10 wickets in the first Test played at the Basin Reserve.
The hosts first bowled out India for 191 runs in the second innings and then chased down the nine-run target on Day 4 of the Test match with utmost ease to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
Resuming the day at 144/4 and trailing by 39 runs, the visitors lost their last six wickets for mere 47 runs in 17 overs they batted on the fourth-day morning.
While Southee returned with figures of 5/61, Boult scalped four wickets giving away just 39 runs in the 22 overs he bowled.
It was New Zealand's 100th Test win, which coincidentally also came in Ross Taylor's historic 100 Test. Also, this was India's first defeat in the ongoing World Test Championship.
