INDvsNZ: India win seventh series under Virat Kohli

 Jasprit Bumrah enhanced his reputation as a death bowler by bowling India to victory in the last over in a nail biting encounter at Kanpur to clinch the three-match ODI series 2-1.

New Zealand were cursing to victory, needing only 30 runs in the last three overs with 5 wickets in the bank when Bumrah turned the match into India’s favour by bowling a superb 48th ovee that resulted in just 5 runs and also brought India the prized wicket of Tom Latham (65) through a run out.

Bumrah’s fast bowling partner Bhuvenshwar Kumar, who had an unseal off day, delivered when it mannered and gave away only 10 runs in the penultimate over.

Bumrah then held his nerve to bowl an even better last over and ensure a six-run victory for India.

For New Zealand, Colin Munro made 75 while Tom Latham (65) and skipper Kane Williamson (64) also struck fifties.

Credit must go to the Indian spinners – Yuzvendra Chahal in particular for India in the match during the middle overs when New Zealand were taking giant steps towards the target.

Chahal got New Zealand’s highest scorer Colin Munro (73) with a beautiful leg spinner to end a threatening 109-run partnership. The leggie then gave a body blow to the visitors by getting the prized scalp of Kane Williamson (64).
