Till then, this is Shashwat Kumar signing off! Goodbye and goodnight!
New Zealand complete a whitewash!
New Zealand started off brilliantly and got rid of Mayank and Virat in the first PowerPlay. Post that though, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer played excellent essays to keep the visitors in the hunt. In fact, the former notched up his 4th ODI hundred and alongside Pandey, he ensured that India posted a respectable total on the board. 

However, on a strip that was pretty docile, 296 never seemed enough and the Black Caps breezed through the gears in the opening PowerPlay as Guptill blazed away to a half-century. There was a hint of wobble once the opener fell, however, the likes of de Grandhomme and Latham ensured that no T20I-esque hiccups ensued, meaning that the hosts clinically wrapped a 3-0 series triumph. 
De Grandhomme finishes it with a boundary!
Shardul bowls a fuller length delivery for a change but the result is pretty similar. He gets crashed through the leg-side for four and the Kiwis comfortably complete their run chase with 17 balls to spare.
47.1 FOUR! Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Slower ball full toss, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.
Bumrah concedes only 3 runs off the 47th over and somehow, the Kiwis have taken the chase into the 48th over. 
Over 47 | Summary: 1 1 . . . 1 Bowler: J Bumrah NZ: 296/5(RR 6.30)
46.6 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Agarwal.
46.5 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Iyer.
46.4 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Bumrah.
46.3 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Rahul.
46.2 Jasprit Bumrah to Tom Latham. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Agarwal.
46.1 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Iyer.
New Zealand now require 4 runs off 24 deliveries and in all likelihood, the game would be done and dusted in the 47th over.
Over 46 | Summary: 4 1wd . 4 6 4 1 Bowler: S Thakur NZ: 293/5(RR 6.37)
45.6 Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, in the air under control to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Agarwal.
45.5 FOUR! Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs.
Shardul! O Shardul!
The lad isn't learning and he continues getting punished. In fact, it's reached a point where people aren't even feeling any sympathy. Another short and wide delivery gets drubbed over point for six.
45.4 SIX! Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs.
Four more for de Grandhomme!
This time, a short delivery takes the top edge to hurtle towards the fine leg boundary.
45.3 FOUR! Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs.
45.2 Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Pandey.
45.2 Wide Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Rahul.
Crunch! Boundary for de Grandhomme!
Shardul again bowls it short and wide. How many times have we said that today! Still, he continues and gets thumped past point for another four. 
45.1 FOUR! Shardul Thakur to Colin de Grandhomme. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs.
8 runs come off Bumrah's over and that seems to be the final nail in India's coffin. The visitors look disconsolate now and it seems that they are resigned to their fate. Latham and de Grandhomme, meanwhile, aren't looking fazed by the pressure of a run chase.
Over 45 | Summary: 1 1 1 4 . 1 Bowler: J Bumrah NZ: 273/5(RR 6.07)

44.5 Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Thakur.
De Grandhomme continues on his merry way!
Bumrah over-pitches slightly and de Grandhomme just flicks it off his pads past mid-wicket to fetch himself another boundary.
44.4 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Colin de Grandhomme. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.
