India beat New Zealand by 321 runs in the third and final test to complete a 3-0 sweep in the series at Indore’s Holkar Stadium on Tuesday.

Resuming on 18 for no loss, the hosts declared their second innings on 216 for three to set New Zealand a 475-run victory target in the first test match to be staged at the venue.

Virat Kohli and his men returned to bowl out New Zealand for 153 with Ravichandran Ashwin claiming 7-59 to go with the six wickets he claimed in the first innings.
