Shikhar Dhawan will want to win this game with the team and put up a good opening stand alongside Shubman Gill, who has been in excellent form. Sanju Samson is another batter who's been a hot topic for quite some time now. With less than a year until the next ODI World Cup, both teams will be looking for the best XI in the 50-over format. The stakes are high, as both sides would be hoping for a win in this game. Which side will come out on top? Let's find out. Stay tuned for toss and other updates.
Kane Williamson will be happy with his performance, to begin with. He has struggled in the shortest format of the game and as expected, made a good comeback as the ODI series kicked off in Auckland. The skipper had an amazing knock in the first ODI alongside the reliable Tom Latham in the middle order as he stitched a match-winning partnership. They will be hoping to carry on the same momentum in this game as well. They will hope their bowling unit performs well in this game, as they need to win this one.
Warm welcome, folks! It is time for the third and final ODI of the series. The series stands with New Zealand leading 1-0. The 2nd ODI was abandoned due to rains where Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav had a 66 runs partnership after losing Shikhar Dhawan early on in the game. The 3rd and final ODI of the series at Hagley Oval will be crucial from India's point of view, as they will be looking to level this series.
