The honours were shared in the series as the previous two matches also ended in draws.

Ravikumar Samarth (27) and Ankit Bawne (5) were at the crease with India at 38-1 in their second innings on Sunday, but the duo couldn't face a single delivery owing to incessant rain on Monday.

On Sunday, Cam Fletcher's career-best 103 gave New Zealand A a 75-run first-innings lead, despite Krishanappa Gowtham's six-wicket haul.

In reply to India's first innings total of 323, New Zealand A ended their innings at 398 in 131.4 overs with Gowtham returning with figures of 46.4-10-139-6.

India A will now play three unofficial ODIs against New Zealand A starting 7 December at Mount Maunganui.
