Oh missed out on your teams last game? We've got your back! Here is where you'll get all the news and the summary of the match that was.

5-0 for India in just 48.1 overs!

5-0 in favour of India within 49 overs. That was the duration of the 5th ODI between India and New Zealand at Chennai.

India made shortwork of the Kiwis in the last ODI and whipped a 5-0 whitewash in the series with astounding domination from the very start. Praveen Kumar's first over wicket kickstarted theo whole affair and the match was over perhaps even before the scheduled break between two innings. Plain and simply put, it was a pathetic display of batting that let the Kiwis down. There was no ghost in the wicket but greedy NZ batsmen all succumbed to their peril trying to free their arms when a steady partnership was the order of the day. The Indian spinners - Ashwin, Yuvaraj and Yusuf Khan - combined well to take 7 wickets amongst them to shunt the Kiwis out for a paltry 103 in just 27 overs. It was hard to believe from a team, which a couple of days back had score thrice more in Bangalore.

India reached the paltry target in the 22nd over. However, Royal Challenger Virat Kohli failed with the bat today for the second consecutive time, scoring only 2. Skipper Gambhir was out for a duck. But Yuvaraj (42) and Parthiv Patel (56) combined well to reach the target without more casualty.
