At Dunedin, March 1. New Zealand won by 108 runs. Toss: India. Early rain reduced the game to 47 overs a side. New Zealand, put in on a pitch of low bounce, might have struggled, but Crowe and Rutherford added 152, a New Zealand record for the fourth wicket in one-day internationals. Crowe was full of confidence and Rutherford played a particularly entertaining innings, scoring 78 not out from 75 balls, with five fours and a six. India made a depressing start, due primarily to Morrison, and never recovered. Thomson took three wickets at minimal cost.
