After the high of T20I, India lost the ODI series with one game to play. But Ravindra Jadeja produced an all-round performance to give India an outside chance in the must-win second ODI at Auckland on Saturday.

It was a case of so close, yet so far for India with Jadeja hanging shepherding the tailenders. Chasing New Zealand's 273/8, India were in trouble from the start, losing Mayank Agarwal in the third over itself. Then, the visitors were 153/7 in the 32nd over.

Then, Jadeja and Navdeep Saini (45 off 49) added 76 runs to resurrect the chase, only to fall short by 22 runs. Jadeja made 55 off 73 balls.

Earlier in the match, Jadeja produced a tidy spell, leaking only 35 runs while taking the wicket of Kiwi stand-in skipper Tom Latham. Jadeja also showcased his brilliant fielding skills by sending James Neesham back with a direct hit.

Here are some reactions:

For the record, this was the first series win for New Zealand against India since 2014.
