Batting first, New Zealand were bowled out for 189 in 38.4 overs with opener Luke Ronchi (66) and lower order batsman James Neesham (46).

For India, pacer Mohammed Shami and Bhuneshwar Kumar scalped three wickets each while spinner Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets. Star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and pacer Umesh Yadav chipped in with a wicket each.

India started their chase on a positive note, but after 26 overs, with 129/3 on the board, rain played spoilsport and forced the players off the field. But till then, India were well ahead of the D/L par score of 84, which resulted in their win.

For India, Shikhar Dhawan (40) and skipper Virat Kohli (52) were the major contributors.

New Zealand play their second warm-up game before the main event starts on 1 June. Kane Williamson will be looking to test his team's strengths and weaknesses against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
