Between India's historic tour of New Zealand in 2008-09 & their visit to New Zealand again in 2013-14, these two countries played each other in 8 ODIs where India won 7 out of these 8 matches.

So, just before the 2013-14 tour of New Zealand, everyone expected the Indians to put on a great show, but that was not the case as they lost the 5-match ODI series 4-0, with one match being tied. They were even unable to repeat the success that they had in the test series in their previous tour as they lost the 2-match test series 1-0 as well.
