The fourth ODI of the 5-match ODI series between New Zealand and India at Seddon Park in Hamilton has become a nightmare for the visitors. After winning the toss, the Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson decided to bowl first and his bowlers wreaked havoc for India. As a result of the same, the Indian team was bundled out for a meager score of 92. Coming into the chase, the Kiwi opener, Martin Guptill started the innings with a six, but in the same over, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the revenge.

Guptill was looking in the fine touch as he started the innings with a huge six over deep mid-wicket as Bhuvi bowled a fuller length ball on middle and leg stump. He followed the six with back-to-back boundaries as well. Bhuvneshwar again bowled a fuller of a length ball angling into Guptill, who shoveled it through the mid-on for four runs.

On the third ball of the over, Guptill demonstrated his sense of timing as he neatly the tucked the ball off the pads on a length ball. However, after conceding 14 runs in first three balls, Bhuvneshwar had the laugh as he dismissed Guptill on the 4th ball of the over.

It was a short-lived burst from Guptill as he closed the face of the bat a tad early. Again it was a fuller ball angling in towards leg stump. The ball took the leading edge only to be caught by Hardi Pandya at the point. India had an early breakthrough but one-seventh of the target has been shaved off just like that. 

Here is the video of the same:

The Kiwis chased down the total of 93 runs in the 15th over itself by losing two wickets of Guptill and Williamson. Ross Taylor scored 37 runs in just 25 balls and both the wickets were taken by Bhuvneshwar.
