New Zealand v India 3rd ODI

All rounder Hardik Pandya, who was recalled to the Indian side after his ban was lifted, could make the cut at the expense of Vijay Shankar.

On Monday, with India leading 2-0 in the five-match ODI rubber against the Kiwis, the talismanic stumper was once again troubled by his hamstring, which provided the men-in-blue with an opportunity to test out Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps.

Brief scores: New Zealand 243 in 49 overs (Ross Taylor 93, Tom Latham 51; Mohammed Shami 3-41, Hardik Pandya 2-45) vs India. We try to decode India's Predicted Playing XI.

Williamson's wicket was crucial for Team India, who are looking to seal the five-match series and Twitter did not keep calm as they got delighted watching Pandya giving his everything in his comeback match.

Pandya can also bat at No 6 if situation arises and his busy approach in batting can also get the scoreboard ticking in middle overs as the skipper wants.

Police have issued a hoax and humorous warning about the touring India cricket team.

Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu then scored 40s to further setup the match for the middle order to launch an attack in the slog overs.

The team management might also think of handing an India debut to the very talented Shubman Gill.

He began bowling with an economy of less than two but the moment that forced the fans to heaps praise on the returning player was when he took a stunning diving catch off Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling that dismissed Blackcaps' captain Kane Williamson.

"If we had kept wickets in hand we could have been in the chase but these are lessons that we need to learn going ahead", Williamson had said after the second ODI.

Shami removed Colin Munro for seven, while Bhuvneshwar claimed the scalp of Martin Guptill for 13 runs.

Match Starts at 7:30 am.
