New Zealand has beaten India by 87 runs in the fifth and final ODI at Wellington and sealed the five-match series 4-0.

Batsmen Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor refused to take their collective foot off India bowlers' throats and took their partnership tally for the series to 463, which is the highest for four partnerships and fourth-highest overall.

In the process, Williamson set the New Zealand record for most runs in a bilateral series, his 361 being 18 more than Taylor's, who became only the second New Zealander to have scored 10 ODI centuries.

Matt Henry, who was handed his debut on the back of a five-for in first class cricket last week, responded to the call with a four-wicket haul.
