Team India will look to extend their winning run at home when they will lock horns with New Zealand in 3rd and final ODI at Holkar Stadium in Indore on January 24. After a hard-fought win in the 1st ODI, Team India registered a dominant victory in the 2nd ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
The pitch at Holkar Stadium has been a batting paradise in the past. In the last 5 ODIs at this stadium, the average score has been 307. The side batting first will have added advantage as compared to the side chasing.
While in 1st ODI, Team India's batting stood out, the 2nd ODI saw bowlers' prowess as India bundled out New Zealand for a mere 108. Mohammad Shami was the pick of the bowlers as his 3/18 punctured Kiwis' top order. With the series already in the bag, Rohit and Co. will look to try and test other challenges.
