    Could it be time for Indian cricket coach Ravi Shastri to take a "planned break"?

    Could it be time for Indian cricket coach Ravi Shastri to take a "planned break"?

    The concept seems to have worked for counterpart Gary Stead, with New Zealand winning their first one-day international clean sweep over the tourists in a series of three or more matches.

    The hosts have chased down 297 in Mt Maunganui to complete a five-wicket win with 17 balls to spare - Colin de Grandhomme, Henry Nicholls and Martin Guptill made half-centuries.

    In contrast, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, the world's respective number one batsman and bowler in the format, struggled.

    Kohli scored 75 runs at an average of 25 - Bumrah took no wickets from 30 overs at an economy rate of 5.56.

    Tom Latham, who captained New Zealand in the first two matches, puts the result into context.
