Certainly cannot imagine how the tables have turned. After getting clean-swept 0-5 in the T20Is, coming into the ODI series with their regular captain Kane Williamson ruled out of the first two games, New Zealand has shown tremendous character to clinch the series against the mighty Indians. New Zealand are 2-0 up in this ODI series and would look to continue this momentum clinch the series by clean sweep. On the other hand, Indians haven’t played the best of cricket in this ODI series, surely they are missing the services of the swashbuckling opener, Rohit Sharma. This game is all about pride and honor for the Indian. Will this series be ended by 3-0 or the men in blue will show some character?

Player to Watch Out For:
Virat Kohli: It has been more than 5 months that Virat Kohli hasn’t made any hundred in this form of the game. He has been in decent form in this whole series but certainly not at his best in touch. With stakes really high, he could rise to the occasion and deliver the required goods in the absence of Rohit. He will be a great choice for trying him as captain in your FSL11 fantasy team which is a great platform to play daily fantasy cricket.
Currently, the momentum are in the favor of Kiwis and looks like they have got the upper hand in this match as they have played overall better cricket than India. All hopes will be on Virat Kohli the batsman, if he delivers in this match then the match is expected to be neck to neck.
