Chennai - New Zealand have been dismissed for a paltry 103 in the fifth and final one-day international against India in Chennai on Friday. 

Ravichandran Ashwin finished with 3/24, while Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh and Yusuf Pathan bagged two wickets each.

Scott Styris top-scored for the visitors with 24.

Earlier, New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori won the toss and elected to bat.

India, leading 4-0 in the series, brought in paceman Munaf Patel to give pace spearhead Zaheer Khan some rest ahead of a gruelling tour of South Africa starting later this month.

New Zealand also made one change, replacing Andy McKay with Grant Elliott.


India: Gautam Gambhir (capt), Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Saurabh Tiwari, Yusuf Pathan, Parthiv Patel (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Praveen Kumar.

New Zealand: Daniel Vettori (capt), Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum (wk), Martin Guptill, Scott Styris, Jamie How, Tim Southee, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, James Franklin, Grant Elliott.
