    OUT! New Zealand Beat India by 22 Runs: Ravindra Jadeja is the last wicket to fall as New Zealand secure series with a 2-0 lead! Jadeja connected a low full toss well but it wasn’t powerful enough to clean de Grandhomme at long on. That’s it. New Zealand have beaten India to take a 2-0 lead in the series, meaning they take the series. Memories of the World Cup semifinal match all over again. But what a comeback by New Zealand after a 0-5 drubbing in T20s. Played, KIWIS!

    The Sword Celebration is out as Ravindra Jadeja scores a gritty half-century. Yuzvendra Chahal departs, RUN OUT after a vital 10. India 251/9, need 23 off 13. Last man walks in. Surely, Jadeja needs to keep strike here

    SIX and OUT! Saini slashes a SIX over point but is bowled the next ball. He goes for 45 as India lose their eighth wicket for 229

  • 3:08 PM IST

    4, 4, 4 – Navdeep Saini has given India hope, albeit a small one. Three boundaries in that over from de Grandhomme has brought the equation down to 52 needed off 36. Drama to finish the 44th over. New Zealand review an LBW appeal against Jadeja but India survive as the ball is seen to be missing leg.

    India 206/7 in 43 overs. 68 needed off 42. Navdeep Saini and Ravindra Jadeja have pushed this match into the final seven overs. Saini continues to entertain, a SIX over point was followed by a boundary off de Grnadhomme. Clean hitting this. New Zealand still favourites, but can India work a miracle here?

  • 2:42 PM IST

    Navdeep Saini and Ravindra Jadeja have added 27 off 42, but you’ve got to believe, it’s come a little late in the innings. Saini has entertained with a couple of boundaries, typical of a No. 8 batsman. India need another 92 off 69 balls, but it’s still New Zealand’s game by a long stretch.

    Knocked Him Over! Shardul Thakur’s loses his off-stump. Second wicket for Colin de Grandhomme, who bowls another wicket maiden. India slip further to 153/7. Questions will be asked about India’s performance in the ODIs, considering this is New Zealand’s second-strong bowling attack without Boult, Henry or Ferguson.

    FIFTY and OUT! Shreyas Iyer departs the ball after completing his half-century. Again, a needless shot. He was batting so well, but perhaps the adrenaline for getting his fifty the previous ball led to an exuberant shot. Gave himself to slash over point but edged Bennett to Latham to perish for 52. It’s highly unlikely for India to come back from here

  • 1:30 PM IST

    OUT! Another setback for India. Southee snares Kedar Jadhav, who finds the fielder at covers. India 96 for 5 and are really struggling. Ravindra Jadeja walks in to form the last recognised pair for India. Thakur and Chahal to follow after this. Iyer needs to play through for he’s looked the most assured Indian batsmen tonight. He’s struck six fours and a six to reach 44 off 48.

Live cricket score India vs New Zealand, IND vs NZ, 2nd ODI, Eden Park, Auckland, February 8 Match Time: Hello and welcome to our live blog of the 2ns ODI between India and New Zealand at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday. Despite posting a mammoth total of 347 in the 1st ODI against New Zealand at Seddon Park, Hamilton on Wednesday, India failed to defend losing by six wickets. While the NZ win has livened up the tour with the hosts claiming their first win of the series, after being whitewashed 0-5, the ODI series – comprising three matches – is one the line now and India can’t afford to have the kind of bad day they had on the field and with the ball. Heading into the second ODI at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday, India will most likely have a change in personnel, at least in the bowling department.
