"When you want to win games, you need a right balance". "I think throughout this series India were far better at that than us and as a bowling unit they were superb - their accuracy from a seaming and spin perspective did put us under that sort of pressure in which we saw improvements throughout the series but it certainly was something that we didn't start the series well with". We showed a lot of character.
Pacer Matt Henry was the standout bowler for the Kiwis. Mohammed Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal have bagged two wickets each.
The fifth ODI will be played at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand.
Meanwhile, earlier in the game, an impressive 90-run knock from Ambati Rayudu and a whirlwind knock from Hardik Pandya helped India recover from a disastrous and post a respectable 252. Williamson said they were "confident" of chasing the score but India managed to pick up wickets at key moments.
He said it was important in such conditions to understand "what will be a fighting total". "If the series was alive, we would have chased", he added.
Rohit heaped praise on Rayudu and Shankar, saying their partnership was the turning point of the match. "The achievement we've had today is a great achievement to have". And they were able to pick up wickets at key moments which made life a little bit hard in that chase.
Democratic Party Cries Foul over Howard Schultz's Potential 2020 Run
John Kennedy (R-La.) said he was skeptical about the viability of a Schultz candidacy and whom it may help in the 2020 election. Howard Schultz , the billionaire former Starbucks CEO, speaks at a book event on January 28, 2019 , in New York City.
"He is a real good talent, with just two odd games, you can't judge".
Rayudu and Vijay Shankar shared a 98-run fifth-wicket partnership but the latter was run out for 45 looking for a quick single, only to be stranded at the non-striker's end by Colin Munro's underarm throw. Both would hope they are as sharp with the bat and the ball in the fifth ODI. At that stage, another sub-100 total from India looked very much a possibility.
However, the other 30 overs saw just one wicket claimed for 166 runs as India first rebuilt, then attacked.
"Not, not at all", Williamson said, when asked if his team grew complacent.
"The Hamilton loss, the way we lost was big". Shubnam Gill failed to impress on his ODI debut, but the 19-year-old is likely to get another opportunity to prove himself. "So there was none of that".
Unperturbed by the fall of Nicholls' wicket, Munro and skipper Kane Williamson (39) played sensibly and punished the bad balls. Dhoni (1), playing after the missing the last two games due to injury, was bowled by Boult, a peach of a delivery that swung back sharp and late to take the Indian wicketkeeper's off-stump.
