After dominating the New Zealand team in the first three ODIs, India was stunned by the blackcaps in the fourth ODI at Seddon Park, Hamilton on Thursday. 

Kane Williamson's decision to bowl first proved costly for India as Kiwi pacer Trent Boult produced one of the best spells of his bowling career, picking up Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Kedar Jadhav, and Hardik Pandya and finishing with stunning figures 10-4-21-5. 

Seeing their team's humiliating collapse, Indian fans couldn't help but miss Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni in the playing XI. They also came out with hilarious memes mentioning Indian team is hollow without Dhoni and Kohli in the squad.

Kohli has been rested for the fourth and fifth ODI and the three T20Is that follow, while Dhoni's sore hamstring kept him away from playing the contest in Hamilton.

Boult's five-fer and Colin de Grandhomme's tight spell (10-2-26-3) reduced seven Indian batsmen to a single-digit score.  The top scorer for the visitors came in India's number 10 Yuzvendra Chahal who scored crucial 18 (37).

India were all out for a measly 92 runs in 30.5 overs, registering their lowest ODI total in New Zealand.
