New Zealand won the toss inviting India to bat first in Hamilton.
Boult dismissed the openers cheaply to put India in early trouble.
Shubman Gill, who was handed a debut in Hamilton, showed good touch but was dismissed for 9 by Boult.
Boult finished with four maidens and five wickets in his 10-over quota to bundle the rest of the line up for a total of 92.
Colin de Grandhomme also chipped in with 3 wickets of his own.
In the Kiwis chase, Bhuvneshwar took two wickets, that of Guptill and Williamson but couldn't make further inroads.
It was a walk in the park for the New Zealand batsmen in the second innings chasing an under-par score of 93. Guptill started the innings with a six and followed that up with two consecutive more boundaries. He was dismissed in the 4th ball of the first over. India got the wicket of Kane Williamson but it was just a mere consolation as Henry Nicholls and Ross Taylor did a professional job and finished off the game.
