On the opening day of the tournament, the Indians had registered a hard fought
2-1 win over hosts Malaysia.
New Zealand's consolation goal came from the sticks of Sam Hiha in the 53rd minute.
Shilanand Lakra, who had made his senior debut earlier this year at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Malaysia, was in good nick as he capitalised on a good assist to put the ball past the New Zealand goalkeeper to double the scoreline.
Though New Zealand tried to overcome the initial setback, India's defence did not not allowing any easy circle entries.
The Indian forwards kept up the pressure as they scored back-to-back goals in the 21st and 23rd minute through Harmanjit's field strike and Mohd Faraz's penalty corner conversion.
While the third quarter saw both teams drop the pace a bit, India extended their lead in the 43rd minute through Lakra.
It was Abhishek's 50th minute goal that put India 6-0 ahead, even as New Zealand's Sam Hiha scored a consolation goal three minute later.
Skipper Mandeep also registered his name in the score sheet as he converted a smart variation from a penalty corner to hand India the massive win.
India will next take on Japan in their third match on October 9.
