(MENAFN - Kora) The draw saw New Zealand win the two-Test series 1-0 after captain McCullum (302) reached his milestone early on day five at Basin Reserve in Wellington, having resumed on 281



Jimmy Neesham (unbeaten 137) reached a century on debut and the hosts declared at 680-8 before lunch, setting India 435 for victory



Tim Southee (2-50) made a couple of breakthroughs but Virat Kohli (105 not out) batted well as India reached 166-3 before the teams shook hands, giving New Zealand the series win



Neesham was the quicker scorer of New Zealand's two batsmen, who started in the middle on day five, and brought up his century by flicking Ishant Sharma through square leg



The 23-year-old would finish with the highest score by a debutant batting at number eight



It was McCullum's turn in the next over



The 32-year-old chopped a Zaheer Khan delivery for four his 32nd of the innings to become the first New Zealander to make 300



McCullum's triple century saw Martin Crowe's 299 against Sri Lanka in 1991 replaced as the highest-ever Test score by a New Zealander



On 293, McCullum had survived a nervous moment after he edged an Ishant ball, but it fell just short of wicket-keeper MS Dhoni



But just two balls after bringing up his triple ton, McCullum was out



He edged Zaheer through to Dhoni as the Indians came across to shake his hand after a marathon 559-ball innings



McCullum decided against declaring and Zaheer completed his five-wicket haul by removing Southee (11)



The declaration did finally come during the first session but only after New Zealand passed their highest-ever Test total of 671



New Zealand were unable to find a wicket before lunch but did so in the first over after the interval



Shikhar Dhawan (two) was trapped in front leaving a Trent Boult delivery as India slumped to 10-1



When Murali Vijay (seven) fell in the next over caught at third slip by Corey Anderson off Southee, the hosts had hope of victory



But Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara (17) steadied before the latter fell, only for Rohit Sharma (unbeaten 31) to come in and deny the Kiwis



India remain without a Test victory away from home since 2011, despite having led New Zealand by 246 runs after the first innings in Wellington, and then having the hosts at 94-5 early on the third day
