Chasing 407 to win, India resumed their second innings at 87 for one and the visitors were on course with Shikhar Dhawan (115) and Virat Kohli (67) sharing 126 runs for the third wicket but pacer Neil Wagner took four crucial wickets in the post-lunch session to derail India's chase at Eden Park.

Here are the statistical highlights of the first cricket Test between India and New Zealand.

# India (366) have recorded their highest fourth innings total against New Zealand in Tests and seventh highest overall.
     
# The score is India's fourth highest losing total in Tests - their only total of 400 being 445 against Australia at Adelaide in January 1978.
     
# India have lost 10 out of the last 11 overseas Tests contested. They have lost 11 Tests away from home under Dhoni's leadership out of 22 contested (won five and drawn six) - the most under one skipper, surpassing the 10 Tests each lost under the captaincies of Nawab of Pataudi, Mohammad Azharuddin and Sourav Ganguly.
     
# Virat Kohli (67) recorded his ninth Test fifty – his third vs New Zealand - his highest in the fourth innings.
     
# Shikhar Dhawan became the second Indian opener to post a century in the fourth innings of an overseas Test. Sunil Gavaskar had registered four, a record. He also became the fourth Indian opener to post a hundred in the fourth innings of a Test match.  He joined Gavaskar (four), Mushtaq Ali and Wasim Jaffer.
     
# Dhawan's 115 is his first century overseas - his second in Tests, next only to the 187 off 174 balls against Australia at Mohali on Test debut in March 2013.
     
# Dhawan became the first Indian opener to record a hundred in the fourth innings of a Test match in New Zealand.
     
# Dhawan became the first Indian batsman to record a duck and a hundred in the same Test match against New Zealand.
     
# Dhawan and Kohli were involved in a stand of 126 - India's highest third-wicket partnership vs New Zealand at Auckland.
     
# Dhoni and Jadeja were associated in a 54-run seventh-wicket partnership off 34 balls. Their run-rate of 9.52 is the highest by an Indian pair vs New Zealand for any wicket in Tests (minimum qualification 50).
     
# Brendon McCullum has got his third Man of the Match award in Tests - the first two were 143 vs Bangladesh at Dhaka in October 2004 and 225 (a career-best) vs India at Hyderabad in November 2010.

# Neil Wagner (eight for 126) recorded his best bowling figures in a Test match, surpassing the seven for 116 vs Bangladesh at Mirpur in October last year.
     
# New Zealand have beaten India in a Test match for the first time since 2002.
     
# New Zealand speedsters have captured all twenty wickets in a Test match 12 times.
