In the New Zealand tour of India 2023, the third ODI will take place on January 24 at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore at 1:30 PM IST.
The Indian bowlers bounced back ferociously in the second ODI after taking a beating from Michael Bracewell in the first ODI. Mohammed Shami and the in-form Mohammed Siraj asked some serious questions in the powerplay and sent back half of the team to the pavilion within the first 10 overs. The skipper, Rohit Sharma scoring a fiery half-century was a big positive from the previous game. The Men in Blue will be looking forward to carrying yet another dominant performance on Tuesday to clean sweep the series 3-0.
On the other end, the Tom Latham-led New Zealand unit is having a disastrous outing in the sub-continent. Apart from the fightback in the first ODI, there hasn’t been any robust performance from the team. The inexperienced bowling attack and scarcity of runs from the top order are major reasons for the team’s below-par performance. The Kiwis will have to punch above their weight to outplay the audacious Indian team.
India are superior in the head-to-head competition between the two teams. The two sides collided on 115 instances, the Men in Blue won 57 games and lost 50.
