Adams makes India suffer
A Super Max field
Super Max involves a target zone for extra runs
Super Max International, Christchurch: New Zealand (123-5 & 118-7) beat India (133-5 & 87-6) by 21 runs

Andre Adams was the star as New Zealand downed India in the first international clash of their tour - a Super Max match in Christchurch.

Adams took five wickets overall as the tourists, chasing 109 in their second innings, were restricted to 87 for six.

Super Max, the brainchild of former Black Cap batsman Martin Crowe, involves two, 10-over innings per side, with extra runs available when the ball lands in target areas.

Opener Nathan Astle top-scored with 42 from 23 deliveries as New Zealand reached 123 for five after winning the toss.

Andre Adams
Adams took three wickets in the last two overs
India, though, took a 10-run lead in their first ever match in this form of the game, thanks to Sachin Tendulkar.

The Indian opener smashed a 27-ball 72 on his return from a hamstring injury.

Only Brendon McCullum could fashion a similar reply as the hosts took strike for a second time, smashing three fours and four sixes to reach 60 from 28 deliveries.

But New Zealand's 118 for seven was more than enough after two overs from Adams at the death yielded three wickets for 15.

India play two Tests and seven ODIs in New Zealand
