Latham and Taylor join forces to earn New Zealand victory

The fourth-wicket pair shared a stand of 200 to overhaul the hosts' 280 for eight and overshadow Virat Kohli's 31st ODI hundred on his 200th appearance.

After winning the toss, Kohli's decision to bat first looked to have backfired when Trent Boult removed Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma inside the first six overs.

But the skipper led from the front, taking advantage of a Mitchell Santner drop at cover on 29 to hold the innings together with 121 from 125 balls, while receiving some crucial lower-order support from Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

New Zealand faced an uphill battle when they slipped to 80 for three in reply, losing key batsman Kane Williamson for just six, but Latham and Taylor joined forces to shock the India attack with 103 not out and 95 respectively.
