So that is it from this game and the ODI series. New Zealand avenge for the T20I whitewash with an ODI whitewash. We now move to the final leg of the tour as we head for the longest format of the game. The teams take on each other for a 2-Test series which will carry 120 points of the World Test Championship. The first Test match begins on Friday, 21st February. The game begins at 1130 local (2230 GMT, Previous day). Cheers!
New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson says they were outstanding and clinical. Credits India for putting on a tough challenge. Adds they were clinical against a great side. Tells they had clarity in their roles and that was the main thing. Says the ODI side is looking for the Australian series now. Shares that the team changes a bit for the Tests. On his health, Williamson says he is recovering well.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that they were in the contest in all the games and tells that it is about margins. Credits the batsmen for keeping them in the game. Criticizes the bowling and the fielding and says that if you don't take your chances then you will pay in international cricket. Says they did well in T20Is but New Zealand turned up with more intensity in the ODIs and deserved to win 3-0. Tells there are many things to look forward to in terms of Test and T20Is. Adds that he is looking forward to the Tests because of the Test championship and crucial points are at stake.
For his outstanding series with the bat, Ross Taylor is named the Man of the Series. No interview of Rosco has been taken. He played a vital role in the first two matches which helped the Black Caps take a 2-0 lead.
For his match winning performance of 80, Henry Nicholls has been awarded the Man of the Match. The openers says they wanted to achieve a whitewash and is happy to have achieved that. Tells he is enjoying batting with Guptill at the top of the order and his quickfire knock allowed him settle down. Adds that it was good that they managed to get the opening stands in all the games and that set the platform.
Earlier in the day, after being put into bat, India struggled but a century from KL Rahul along with crucial performances from Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey helped them reach a competitive total of 296 but in the end that was not enough for the Men in Blue to get over the line. Hamish Bennett was the tormentor-in-chief with the ball as his 4-wicket haul put brakes on India's budding stands.
A lot of serious questions about the Indian bowling will be raised. In the recent past we all have been ravishing praise on them but when Bumrah does not fire they look like lions without teeth. A rare failure for Bumrah in the series and he ended wicketless in the ODI series. Kudos to the spinners as they brought them back into this contest. Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers and his 3/47 gave them a glimmer of hope.
Chasing 297, New Zealand's openers Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls laid a platform with a quickfire 106-run stand. Guptill could not continue but Williamson and Nicholls then carried on. They were cruising at one stage but like New Zealand have developed a recent habit, they shot themselves on the foot and from 159/1 they got a hiccup and found themselves stuttering at 189/4. Neesham then calmed a bit of nerves before Latham and de Grandhomme showed how to finish off a game. In the end, it was a comprehensive win for the Black Caps.
Too easy in the end and the saying goes revenge is a dish best served cold but New Zealand do not believe in that. They have given it back to the Men in Blue for the T20I series whitewash with a comprehensive ODI whitewash. India face their first ODI series whitewash in a 3 or more match series for the first time since 1989.

He is slow on the second one and Mayank gets to the ball in the deep. He sends a very lose throw at the bowler's end.

Yuzvendra Chahal To James Neesham OUT!
OUT! Caught! Chahal's knack of picking up wickets continues. He is a gutsy bowler and this shows that. Not his best ball but all the pressure India built before this led to them getting this wicket. Half-volley on off and middle, Neesham looks to heave it but does not get the elevation. He hits it straight to mid-wicket. Straight into the bucket hands of Virat Kohli. He takes the catch.

James Neesham is the new batsman in.
Drinks Break! India have pulled things back here and after looking down and out they are back in this game. New Zealand have thrown it away a bit and find themselves in a nervy situation once again. They were cruising at one stage with the scorecard reading 159/1 but they are now stuttering at 189/4 and will have two new batsmen at the crease.

Shardul Thakur To Henry Nicholls OUT!
OUT! Caught behind! Nicholls is out of here and all of a sudden it is India who are on top and on driver's seat. Nicholls will be gutted with the way he has to go after being well-set. It is a nothing delivery, length ball wide outside off. Nicholls goes chasing after it like a kid chasing candy. He looks to slash but ends up getting a thin edge to the keeper. KL Rahul behind the stumps takes the catch and goes up in appeal. The umpire raises his finger and Nicholls walks back. 108 needed off 103 balls and it certainly is game on now.

Ravindra Jadeja To Tom Latham
Tossed up delivery on middle, Nicholls flicks it towards square leg and takes the single. The fielder goes for a direct hit at the bowler's end but misses it. It goes as overthrows and the batsmen take the extra run.
Tom Latham, the skipper, is the next batsman in.

Ravindra Jadeja To Ross Taylor OUT!
OUT! Caught! Soft dismissal and Taylor is out of here. Is this the start of something for India? Floated on off, Jadeja bowls this a littler slower in the air. Taylor looks to drive but the ball sticks onto the surface. Taylor is early in his drive and ends up hitting it uppishly. It goes straight to the man at short cover. Virat Kohli there won't drop those and India's hope stays alive. For the first time in this series Taylor is walking back to the pavilion. Is this the twist in the tale? Can Indian sneak in through this tinny little opening?

FOUR! Short wide and punished. Taylor has been in fantastic form in this series and when he is such a lovely flow he won't miss those. Short and wide outside off, Taylor cuts it through point for a boundary.

Ravindra Jadeja To Ross Taylor
Not Out! Ross is safe. Flatter on off, Taylor defends it with soft hands to the off side and is called for a run. He is a bit hesitant and stop-starts his run. He dashes to the other end and Rahul gets to the ball. He scores a direct hit and the Indian players believe they have got rid of Taylor. Rosco though believes he's made his ground. The umpire takes it upstairs and replay shows that Taylor is in and hence he is so confident. Good piece of work from KL Rahul but unfortunately for him, won't count.
Direct hit and Ross is in danger. He thinks he is in but India think they have their man. Let's see what the replays have to say.
