India has won the landmark 250th home test match against Kiwis to become world no 1 in ICC rankings. The hosts beat New Zealand by 178 runs and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
For a change the victory was spearheaded by Indian pacers and spinners combined.
Virat Kohli's men wrapped up the series-deciding victory on the Fourth day of the match after setting the Black Caps a mammoth target of 376 runs to chase. The visitors showed some spark to start with but their chase floundered in the post-tea session and the side was bowled out for 197 in 81.1 overs.
