The New Zealand Under-19s were one wicket away from an outright victory over the India Under-19s at Carisbrook in Dunedin, as they reduced the tourists to 222 for 9.

A century partnership between Michael Tairoa and Cory Anderson helped New Zealand extend their innings to 334, before fast bowler Timothy Southee rocked the Indians with his second five-wicket haul of the match. Chasing 306 for victory, the Indians were given a good platform by Ajinkya Rahane (55) and Tanmay Srivastava (47) but the duo failed to build on it and a lack of support didn't held the Indians' cause any. Only Ravindra Jadeja (35) offered any real fight as Southee ran amock the batting.

The Indians hold a 1-0 series lead in the best-of-three contest.
