India will lock horns with New Zealand in the final game of the three-match ODI series at the Holkar Stadium on Tuesday, January 24. The previous encounter between the heavyweight nations was a one-sided affair with the Men in Blue brushing aside the visitors by eight wickets, thereby taking an unassailable series lead of 2-0.

The Indian management would be pleased by the effort of the bowlers in the ongoing series and they would also take a lot of heart from the fact that their skipper Rohit Sharma has got back amongst the runs. India have played some exciting brand of cricket thus far and would look to continue with the same in the coming encounter. 

New Zealand, on the other hand, has not had much to cheer about thus far. The batters have not been able to stitch partnerships, leaving all-rounders Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner to do the heavy lifting. The Black Caps would need to get their act together in the third ODI to avoid a series whitewash.

Pitch and conditions 

The surface at the Holkar Cricket Stadium is known to be a batting paradise and a tough day for the bowlers seems to be on the cards on Tuesday. In the last five ODIs played at the venue, the team batting first has stood tall thrice. However, given both sides have a lot of firepower in their batting line-up, one can expect the teams to bowl first upon winning the toss.

Probable Playing XIs for IND vs NZ 3rd ODI


With the series already in the bag, India could ponder over giving some of their benched players game time. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Umran Malik have fared well for India in the past and one could witness the duo take the field in Indore.

Predicted Playing XI

Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik

New Zealand

Though Kiwi batters have not been at their best in the series, the team management could still back them for the following game. Thus, New Zealand might go with the same playing XI that featured in the last game.

Predicted Playing XI

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c & wk), Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner
