New Zealand were 63 for two chasing 270 in the 15th over - but 16 runs, eight wickets and 51 balls later, the match was complete.

History beckons for the Kiwis, with the decider of their three-match one-day global series being held at Green Park, ironically in one of the country's most polluted cities on the western bank of the Ganges.

With 46 runs to show for his last four ODI innings, it is safe to say that the Indian vice captain had not set the stage alight in the series.

Latham (103*) rought up his fourth ODI century as he raced ahead of Taylor (95) in latter stages of the chase on a Wankhede pitch which wasn't the usual belter of a track that one gets to see at this venue.

"Great opportunity to win a series in India for the first time, but we're just looking to enjoy ourselves today", Williamson said at the toss at Kanpur's Green Park Stadium.
