The third ODI between India and New Zealand is all set to take place on Tuesday, January 24 at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore. The series is already in the pocket of the hosts. They defeated New Zealand by eight wickets in the second game, taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The Rohit Sharma-led team will be eyeing a clean sweep.
On the other hand, New Zealand will look to salvage pride in the final ODI match of the series. Their batting attack has let them down in the series, especially in the second game. They were bowled out for a paltry 108 runs, with the highest score only being 36 runs. In the bowling department too, the kiwi players haven’t been able to make much of an impact. They will be very keen to get things on track.
Overall, we are in for an exciting contest in the third ODI between India and New Zealand at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
Details: India vs New Zealand, Third ODI
Venue: Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore
Date and Time: Tuesday, January 24, 1:30 PM
The wicket at the Holkar Cricket Stadium is expected to favor the batters, with the average first-innings total being 307 runs. There will be some help for the spinners, as well. The team that wins the toss is likely to chase, with chances of dew coming in later.
A high-profile game awaits as both teams will try to win the series. However, the Kiwis won’t get the service of a few of their senior players so it can be expected that India can come out on top at the end of this game as they already won the series with one game in hand. However, things can change, and New Zealand can certainly fight tough. Betway has also placed its odds in favour of New Zealand at 3.20.
