New Zealand's tallest cricketer Kyle Jamieson has made his presence felt on his one-day international debut as the Black Caps beat India by 22 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
The 2.03m tall Black Cap first made 25 in an unbroken partnership of 76 with Ross Taylor (73 not out) for the ninth wicket on Saturday, helping his side recover from a damaging middle-order collapse.
He then claimed the early wicket of Prithvi Shaw and bowled 10 overs to finish with 2-42 as NZ defended a moderate total of 8-273, dismissing India for 251 with nine balls to spare.
Jamieson's final contribution was to break a 76-run partnership for India's eighth wicket between Ravindra Jadeja (55) and Navdeep Saini (45).
The partnership carried India within 44 runs of New Zealand's total before Jamieson bowled Saini in the 45th over.
"It's still sinking in, I guess, with the bat and then with the ball," said man-of-the-match Jamieson.
"The game kind of ebbed and flowed so it was nice to be on the right side of it."
Jamieson made his long-delayed international debut for a New Zealand team, which was leading the three-match series 1-0 after their win Hamilton, after a stomach bug ruled out allrounder Mitchell Santner and fast bowler Scott Kuggeleijn
Tim Southee was also struck down but bowled his 10 overs and took 2-41.
New Zealand seemed likely to fall short of a competitive total even after Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls put on 93 for the first wicket after India won the toss and chose to field.
Nicholls made 41 and Guptill 79 but from 1-141 in the 26th over, but New Zealand lost their next seven wickets for under 50 runs as spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal applied the squeeze.
In came Jamieson and he stuck around with Taylor, who followed his match-winning century in the first match of the series with an unbeaten 73. Jamieson's 24-ball innings included two sixes.
Shaw began India's chase by striking three fours from the first four balls and reached 24 before Jamieson ended a dangerous innings.
Southee did the same to India captain Virat Kohli, bowling him for 15.
Shreyas Iyer followed his first ODI century with a half century from 56 balls but he was out next ball as India's middle order crumbled. KL Rahul (4) and Kedar Jadhav (9) were also out cheaply.
Jadeja's half century from 67 balls and stand with Saini revived India's hopes but the end came quickly after Saini's dismissal.
New Zealand was later fined 60 per cent of their match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate.
