Having already lost the series, Team India will now look at a consolation win when they face New Zealand in the third and final ODI at the Bay Oval on Tuesday.
While India were comprehensively beaten in the first ODI even after posting 347 in Hamilton, they came out with improved performance with the ball, only to be undone because of the top-order failure in the second ODI in Auckland.
From New Zealand’s point of view, it would be about avenging the whitewash in the T20Is and they would be desperate to go for the kill. For the injury-riddled New Zealand, Kane Williamson’s return will be a welcome one.
The last two ODIs at this venue both featured India, during the 2019 series, and if those games are anything to go by, this should be a good batting track.
India won both their last ODIs in Mount Maunganui and thus, would love to replicate that success in order to avoid a clean sweep.
