Hamilton, Jan 22 : New Zealand made 271 for seven in 42 overs against India in a rain-affected second ODI at the Seddon Park here Wednesday.
Kane Williamson was the top scorer with 77 while ex-skipper Ross Taylor made 57, his second consecutive half-century in the series.
Martin Guptill and Corey Anderson made identical 44 each but in contrasting fashion. Guptill took 65 balls while Anderson needed just 17 balls.
Anderson smacked five sixes and two fours during his whirlwind knock and missed the record of the fastest ODI fifty just by a whisker.
Indian pacer Mohammad Shami got three for 55.
