The Kiwis haven't had a fruitful past few months and it hit a new low in the warm-up game. Losing to Bangladesh right before this warm-up did not help their confidence either. With most teams, including Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka racking up 300+ scores on the quickish pitches on offer, the Kiwis would have hoped for a high score themselves. 

However, they were in for a shock as the Indian seamers bowled tight lines and generated extra zip off the wicket. From 63/3, the Kiwis failed to gather enough momentum and despite Luke Ronchi fighting it out for a while, the collapse was never too far away.

When Jadeja had Ronchi and Colin de Grandhomme off successive overs the fate was sealed.
