NZ wins 3-match ODI series by 1-0 against IND

 

NZ vs IND Match Report: The third and last match of the 3-match ODI series played at the Hagley Oval ground in Christchurch has also been canceled due to rain. NZ skipper Williamson won the toss and decided to bowl first. Team India, who came to bat first after losing the toss, could not even play the full 50 overs and got all out after scoring only 219 runs in 47.3 overs. In response to this kiwis scored 104 runs in 18 overs at the loss of 1 wicket.

The Black Caps got off to a great start chasing the target of 220 runs from Team India. There was a partnership of 97 runs for the first wicket between the opening batter of the Kiwi team, Allen and Conway. New Zealand's only wicket fell in the form of Allen. He scored 57 runs in 54 balls with the help of 1 six and 8 fours. He was dismissed by Malik. Conway scored 38 runs in 51 balls and Williamson remained not out on 0. There is no doubt that if it had not rained in Christchurch, New Zealand would have defeated India by a huge margin even today.

 

Indian stalwarts surrender before New Zealand

 

Earlier, in front of the bowling attack of the Kiwi team, India's batters gave up so easily. Apart from Sundar and Iyer for India, no batter could face the New Zealand bowlers. The left-handed batter Sundar played a crucial inning of 51 runs while Iyer scored 49 runs.

Team India, who came to bat first after losing the toss, looked under pressure from the very beginning. Gill, who was seen in good rhythm in the last two matches, showed a tremendous lack of confidence today. Team India's first wicket fell in the form of Gill, he scored just 13 runs in 22 balls and became the first victim of Milne.

Shortly after Gill's dismissal, captain Dhawan also became Milne's second victim, playing a sluggish inning of 28 off 45 balls. After the return of both openers in the form of Gill and Dhawan, all the responsibility of taking India's score forward fell on Iyer and Pant. But wicket-keeper batter Pant once again disappointed everyone and became the first victim of Mitchell by scoring just 10 runs. Surya Kumar, who came to bat after the dismissal of Pant, also failed to impress in today's match and became the third victim of Milne after scoring just 6 runs. On the other hand, Iyer struggled alone to increase the score of Team India because he was not getting support from another end.

After the fall of Surya Kumar's wicket, Hooda was sent to bat. But this time Ferguson showed Iyer the way to the pavilion. Iyer scored 49 runs in 59 balls. Shortly after Iyer's dismissal, Hooda was also dismissed by Southee after scoring 12 runs in 25 balls. After the fall of Iyer's wicket, Sundar, who came to bat at number 7, showed courage in front of the Kiwi bowling attack and kept hitting brilliant shots in the middle of the inning. But just as Iyer did not get the support of any batter, in the same way, Sundar also did not get the support of any player from the other end.

However, Sundar took all the responsibility of taking India's score forward on his shoulders. Meanwhile, Chahar 12, Chahal 8, and Arshdeep were dismissed after scoring 9 runs. India's 10th wicket fell in the form of Sundar. He played a fighting inning of 51 runs in 64 balls with the help of 1 six and 5 fours. Milne and Mitchell took 3-3 wickets for NZ. Apart from these, Southee got 2, Ferguson got 1 and Santner got 1 wicket while Henry remained empty-handed today.
