MS Dhoni plays a shot during the second one-day international match between New Zealand and India

"To be honest, over these five games, we've been put under pressure a lot and it obviously challenges decision-making which although we're on the wrong side of the results 4-1, which India fully deserve".

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Henry Nicholls, James Neesham, Matt Henry.

The Indian bowling attack shared the wickets around, with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking three and seamers Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya two each.

Pandya joined the team in New Zealand in third ODI after being called back from Australia over his controversial sexist remarks in famous chat show "Koffee With Karan".

What time does the 5th ODI between India vs New Zealand start? Even today, the wicket of Kane Williamson, it was a crucial point.

He said it was important in such conditions to understand "what will be a fighting total". "It (the pitch) was a little bit variable and probably a little bit two-paced as well. We've seen throughout the series".

Rohit heaped praise on Rayudu and Shankar, saying their partnership was the turning point of the match.

"They (India) were able to pick up wickets at key moments which made life a little bit hard". Both would hope they are as sharp with the bat and the ball in the fifth ODI.

They played some beautifully crafted shots all around the park but just when things seemed good in the middle, Shankar got run out. He has not been helped by coming to the wickets in tricky situations, but his scoring has been uncharacteristically slow, and it hasn't taken magical bowling to dismiss him like it usually does. "They did it very well", Williamson said.

This time, a half-tracker from part-timer Kedar Jadhav enticed a heave over mid-wicket, and he was caught on the mid-wicket rope, for a limp 39 off 73 balls.

"The Hamilton loss, the way we lost was big". An lbw appeal was turned down, but Neesham - completely unaware - wandered out of his crease, and Dhoni pounced, throwing down the stumps.That left too much to do for the tail, ensuring a drab end to a dreary series. "So there was none of that". Dhoni's calmness in anchoring the innings will be priceless and young Shubman Gill might make the way in the playing XI as the World Cup preparations hit full swing.
