Delhi: The Black Caps beat In­dia in a nail­bit­ing fin­ish to the sec­ond one-day in­ter­na­tional, to score their first win of their tour.

In­dia seems to be re­joic­ing in fi­nally hav­ing a com­pet­i­tive cricket se­ries on their hands with lo­cal me­dia dish­ing out praise for the Black Caps’ vic­tory. Hav­ing been white­washed in the test se­ries 3-0 and thumped in the open­ing one-dayer, it seems the New Zealand camp weren’t the only ones happy to fi­nally get a win with their thrilling six-run fi­nal over vic­tory in Delhi. Kane Wil­liamson re­ceived plenty of at­ten­tion for his cen­tury that saved the streaky New Zealand in­nings of 242 and also for his cap­taincy as the Ki­wis man­aged to stran­gle the In­dian run chase. “Wil­liamson re­turned to form with an eye­catch­ing 118 be­fore his bowlers suf­fo­cated In­dia’s mid­dle order in a de­fence of a mod­est to­tal,” the Times of In­dia re­ported.
