All eyes are likely to be on Kohli, as he would be eager to go into his well-deserved break on a high, possibly with his first century in the ongoing series. Given a break as part of BCCI’s workload management programme, the right-handed batsman will hope he could end his visit to New Zealand with another ton.

The third ODI is also likely to see the return of Hardik Pandya, who was suspended along with KL Rahul for his controversial remarks on a talk show.

After taking a commanding 2-0 lead against the hosts, India would aim to pocket the series in the third ODI to be played at the Bay Oval Stadium in Mount Maunganui on January 28.

New Zealand have been bowled twice in as many matches and the “spin-twin” of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have accounted for 12 of those 20 wickets. There is no denying of the fact that the New Zealand batsmen have failed against the spinners. The two could again be a cause of concern should the Kiwi’s frailty against spin continues.



India has played 103 ODIs against New Zealand since 1975 in which India has won 53 while New Zealand has won 44.

Total Played- 103

India won- 53

New Zealand won- 44

Tied- 1

Records are in favour of India but the current form of New Zealand team is excellent as compared to India. Its a game and any thing can be happen in cricket.
