So, that brings us to an end of today's coverage. New Zealand pushed India against the wall till the very end but just faltered in the last few overs. They shouldn't be too disappointed with themselves. The Indian cricket team, on the other side, would be proud of the way they bounced back after the Mumbai loss. Three-match series are fun, eh? We certainly are going to see a lot of those in the future. 

Anyways, New Zealand's tour is not over yet. The Kiwis will be playing three T20Is; the first of which will be played on 1st November in Delhi. Do join us for that game. For now, it's time to say good bye. Take care. Good night!

Virat Kohli, India captain and also the Man of the Series: Credit to New Zealand, they fought hard in this series and forced us to play our best cricket. Credit to the skill and character that they possess. You've to tell yourself that the bowler knows best because he too wants to win the game When there is dew on the grounds, even 22 fielders seem less, glad that the boys pulled it off. Well, to be fair on them the batting eased out it. 350+ was our aim but the pitch slowed out and the scuffed up ball made it difficult. The aim is always to win games and win the series and in that course you end up doing something personally it feels good acts as an incentive to do well. Very happy we could get another one in the bag, and move forward to the T20s. Little bit of better feeling with you doing well in team's win. These things are very hard to ignore when you're seeing it on the TV and the aim is to do well for the team.

22:07 (IST)

Man of the Match, Rohit Sharma: Feels good when your team wins and you contribute in the win. I am happy with the way we played. New Zealand were very competitive, and it wasn't easy to come and win. We had to be at our best to win the game. I thought today was a perfect game. I was watching the pre-match analysis where they said my head was falling off, so I worked slightly on it. That helped. My head was falling a bit, and wasn't coming into the line of the ball.  Every hundred is special, I was just trying to do certain things. But what I was working on came off well. (Assistant coach) Sanjay Bangar helped my work on some of these things, and that's when results are more pleasing and that's why I was happy.

22:04 (IST)
A fantastic game of cricket. The match went all the way but the Indian pacers finished the job for their team. Probably this is the last time Kanpur enjoyed an International match and the Indian cricket team made it worth remembering.

Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain: Fantastic series and it was played in the right spirit too. Credit to Virat and his team they were the better side 'JUST'. Lot of promising signs for us but we need to do really well to beat these guys. Tom Latham batted with such clarity in his mind, it was great to watch. Bowlers stuck it out as well, not an easy place for seam bowlers. You look back at little moments but as I said India played better cricket. Mitchell Santner is not bad (When asked for another spinner in the side)
