Hamilton, Jan 22 : India were given a revised target of 297 in accordance with the Duckworth-Lewis Method after New Zealand made 271 for seven in 42 overs in a rain-curtailed second One-Day International 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 44 runs 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 by a whisker.
Indian pacer Mohammed Shami claimed three for 55.
