With an eight-wicket win at Hamilton on Thursday, New Zealand have handed India their largest defeat in terms of number of deliveries remaining in ODIs.

Chasing a target of 93 after Trent Boult and Colin de Grandhomme combined to dismiss India for 92 in 30.5 overs, New Zealand won in 14.4 overs.

That left a whopping 202 balls in the match, which beat the previous biggest defeat for an Indian cricket team – 209 balls versus Sri Lanka in 2010.
