NZ succumbs as India wins series

New Zealand Police's warning against India thrashing the home team is a laugh riot

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli struck half-centuries as India cruised to a seven-wicket win in the third one-day worldwide against New Zealand to seal the series with two matches remaining. Mohammed Shami has struck five times in the series thus far while Bhuvneshwar Kumar got two key wickets in the second ODI, meaning India's bowling line-up poses threats across the board.

"I haven't had a break for a long time".

At the halfway stage India is favourite to seal the series 3-0. India barely broke sweat in the chase with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli scoring half-centuries to drive their team home.

Astle, who has recovered from a knee injury which forced him out of New Zealand's series against Pakistan in November, is also a capable lower order batsman in a side struggling for runs.

Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik saw them over the line, finishing unbeaten on 40 and 38 respectively.

India allrounder Ambati Rayudu has been suspended from bowling in worldwide cricket with immediate effect, the global Cricket Council (ICC) announced.




The part-time spinner was cited for a suspect action after the first ODI against Australia two weeks ago. "Extra care should be taken if you are carrying anything that looks like a cricket bat or ball".

A brief glimmer of hope was offered by Trent Boult when he snared Shihkar Dhawan for 28, well caught by Taylor.

Mount Maunganui: Highlighting Indian cricket team's domination of the hosts in a unique and amusing way, the Easter District Police of New Zealand has come up with a warning for the citizens. Both of Pandya's wickets were New Zealand left-handers - Henry Nicholls and Mitchell Santner.

Only Taylor, and for a time Latham, offered any real resistance after another disastrous start by the top order. The all-rounder took a blinder to dismiss New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and get India an important breakthrough at a crucial juncture in the match.

The fourth-wicket pair put on a vital 119-run stand before spinner Yuzvendra Chalal picked up his second wicket of the innings as he had Latham caught at deep midwicket for 51.

Taylor fell seven runs short of a century on 93 and Latham hit 51 but India took the remaining seven wickets for just 65 runs.
