Who will Dhoni turn to for his final two overs? His three main bowlers - Zaheer, Ishant, and Harbhajan - have finished. Yusuf is given the ball

18.1

18.4

YK Pathan to BB McCullum, 1 run, backs away and carves it through the covers

18.5

YK Pathan to Oram, SIX, glorious shot from Oram to finish things off for New Zealand, gets under a length ball from Yusuf, and clears the cover boundary with ease, that was all timing

It was comfortable for New Zealand in the end. McCullum batted through, playing a sensible hand, without going for the big shot too early in his innings. He was helped by a solid show from the rest of the batsmen, as partnerships of 54, 50 and 60 show.

162 was always going to be hard to defend especially given the size of the ground. India's frontline bowlers did a decent job but the back-up wasn't quite up to the mark - the seven overs of Irfan, Yusuf and Yuvraj went for 92 runs.

At the presentation ceremony, Dhoni says he wants the batsman to take more responsibility, and that it was a learning experience for the team. "Happy with the way the bowlers bowled as it was a placid track, especially Harbhajan who is coming off a long break, " Dhoni said.

Vettori also praises his bowlers' performance for keeping India down to 162, and is also pleased with the way Brendon McCullum managed the chase.

McCullum is the Man of the Match. He calls his innings 'ugly' and says he never really got used to the pace of the track. He says he was lucky Guptill, Taylor and Oram scored at a quick pace.

That's it from us for the first Twenty20, join us on Friday for the second game. Don't forget to tweak your Fantasy teams for that.

This is Siddarth Ravindran signing off, Binoy George was your scorer.
