13:00 IST: It's TOSS time guys.
12:50 IST: Here's how Team India practiced ahead of the third ODI.
12:45 IST: Hello and welcome to the Live coverage from the third and final ODI between India and New Zealand at Green Park stadium in Kanpur.
Rohit Sharma is due for a big score after making 7 and 20 in the earlier games. Just like the home team, the Black Caps would look to get back to winning ways as they remain within touching distance of winning a rare series in India. For starters, they would have to put up a much better batting effort than what they managed in the previous game. Ross Taylor and Latham had bailed them out in Mumbai with a match-winning 200-run stand after New Zealand had lost their top three for 80 runs. The top three did not do much either in Pune but with Taylor and Latham also not firing on that occasion, they ended up with a below par 230. There can't be a better time for captain Kane Willamson to lead from the front after a couple of failures.
