A 39-ball 62-run fifth-wicket stand between Suresh Raina and Mahendra Singh Dhoni went in vain as New Zealand won the second ODI against India by 15 runs in Hamilton yesterday.

Raina slammed a 22-ball 35 to put India on course for a thrilling chase but the visitors finally fell short, needing 71 for a win off 35 balls.

Dhoni's exit after a 44-ball 56 took the sting out of a thrilling chase as India lost Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin in quick succession as the asking rate mounted.

With yesterday's defeat, India have lost their No. 1 ODI ranking to Australia.
