New Zealand have won the first Super Eight's match and gained two valuable points. India will rue the glut of runs they conceded in the final overs. New Zealand managed to score 78 off their final five overs thanks to some awesome hitting from Oram and McMillan. Sehwag and Gambhir got India off to a furious start but it was Vettori's spell of 4 for 20 that turned the tide in New Zealand's favour. No surprise then that he's the Man of the Match, it was a fabulous effort from Vettori on a flat pitch. That's it from me and Kanishkaa for this game, this is George Binoy signing off. Cheers!
