to a 24-run win over India Sunday in the first one-day cricket international.

Kohli seemed on course to take India to victory in the first match of the five match series when he reached his 18th one-day century and shared a 95-run partnership with MS Dhoni (40) for the fifth wicket.

But when McClenaghan dismissed Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja (0) and Kohli in the space of six deliveries in the 43rd and 45th overs, the course of the match changed and India was all out for 268 in reply to New Zealand's 292-7.

India lost its last six wickets for 44 runs and McClenaghan finished with 4-68.
