Colin de Grandhomme smashed an unbeaten 28-ball 58 as New Zealand crushed India by five wickets in the final ODI at the Bay Oval on Tuesday, thereby clinching the three-match series 3-0.
Grandhomme came in to bat when the Black Caps, chasing 297, were 220/4 at the end of 40 overs.
Besides him, opener Henry Nicholls set the tone of the chase with a well-paced 80 off 103 balls (9x4) with contributions from Martin Guptill (66) and Tom Latham, who was unbeaten on 32 along with Grandhomme.
For India, Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers returning figures of 3/47.
In batting, KL Rahul scored 112 but his effort went in vain in the end as India lost with 17 balls to spare.
