07:00 IST: Here's how the pitch looks like ahead of the all-important clash.
06:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live commentary from the third ODI between India and New Zealand.
New Zealand, on the other hand, have looked clueless against India's wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have accounted for 12 of the 20 wickets to fall in the first two ODIs. Kuldeep has looked the most menacing, claiming two four-wicket hauls in the first two ODIs, while Chahal returned with two wickets each in both the matches. Seamers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami also have done a good job, getting crucial breakthroughs for the team. India's batting too has 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. Dhawan scored an unbeaten 75 in the first ODI and followed it up with a 67-ball 66 in the second game. Vice-captain Rohit Sharma, who registered a rare failure in the opening ODI, too entertained the crowd here with a strokeful 87 en route his 14th century stand with opening partner Dhawan. Skipper Kohli has also looked in good nick, while Ambati Rayudu seems to have found his mojo back with a 49-ball 47 on Saturday. An ageless MS Dhoni too continued his rampaging run with yet another unbeaten 33-ball 48 to take India past the 300-mark, while Kedar Jadhav has also grabbed the role of a finisher with both hands.
