With momentum going its way, India eyes series win

MS Dhoni Kuldeep Yadav And Others Enjoy Scenic Route To Tauranga For 2nd ODI

We try to decode India's Predicted Playing XI. In the second match, Yadav again shone with the ball, scalping four wickets.

Skipper Virat Kohli will be rested for the final two ODIs and the subsequent T20I series against the hosts. The previous ODI, played at the same venue, saw India register a comfortable 90-run victory thanks in large part to spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Hardik's presence would lend solidity and balance to the side and he could replace Vijay shankar.

New Zealand, on the other hand, looked out of sorts in their own backyard.

India's batting too have complemented the bowlers, looking rock solid in both the games with Shikhar Dhawan's return to form lending the team the much-needed support at the top.




Latham had established a century-stand with Ross Taylor to lift the Black Caps after early blows. But while New Zealand are now down, they are not yet out and it would be foolish to discount the home side just yet.

New Zealand made a hesitant start after opting to bat in the third ODI.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Shubman Gill, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya. Although the scoring rate was under five an over during their partnership, they ensured that they provided a stable platform for New Zealand, with Taylor using the cut shot to good effect for timely boundaries.

On a "used" surface, Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bat first and see if their batsmen and then their spinners could put India under pressure.

The live streaming of the India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI will be available on Hotstar.
