LONDON (Reuters) – Trent Boult starred when New Zealand defeated India in a World Cup qualifier at Oval Stadium on Saturday.

The left-handed swimmer explored cloudy conditions and a field with plenty of grass coverage to finish with four to 33, while India was contested by just 179 in 39.2 overs.

Ross Taylor (71) and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson (67) spent some time in the middle, with Black Caps winning nearly 13 overs left overs.

Earlier, Boult withdrew the two shipowners, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, for two each, to leave India 10 for two.

Ravindra Jadeja (54) and Hardik Pandya (30) were the only scouts in India over 19.

India captain Virat Kohli fell from 18 to Grandhomme midfielder Colin when the starter was thrown by a ball that cut out of the seam as he pointed to the midwicket.

Kohli's men ran the risk of being dismissed by less than a hundred when MS Dhoni, the captain of the Indian team that won the 2011 World Cup, fell to Southee and left his team 91 to seven.

But the 50-ball shift of Jadeja, with six fours and two six, helped to conquer the tail.

India, however, still had nearly 10 overs of their remaining innings, with James Neesham leading three to 26.
