The one-day international series between New Zealand and India is now tied at 1-0, with New Zealand holding a lead thanks to their victory in the first game and rain forcing the abandonment of the second game. At the third and final encounter of the three-match series, which will take place on Wednesday at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, Team India will want to get back on track with a victory. In the first one-day international, the team scored a respectable total of 306/7 thanks to fifty-plus scores from Shikhar Dhawan (72), Shreyas Iyer (80), and Shubman Gill (50). However, the Indian bowlers were unable to defend the target as Tom Latham (145 not out) and Kane Williamson (94 not out) pieced together an undefeated 221-run partnership to take the New Zealand team to victory. In light of the fact that India’s bowling does not possess sufficient firepower, the management might decide to make some adjustments as the squad works to even the series. India’s expected XI for the third One-Day International match against New Zealand is as follows: Shikhar Dhawan, India’s captain, scored an impressive 72 runs in the first one-day international but was removed for three runs in the second one-day international that was abandoned. The teenage batsman, Shubman Gill, has been in excellent form recently and scored an outstanding half-century in the very first game. In the second one-day international, he scored 45 runs without being defeated before the rain stopped play. It is expected that he will maintain his position on the team. The outstanding batsman, Suryakumar Yadav, had struck a hundred runs in the second Twenty20 International. Suryakumar was moved up the order to bat for the second match after batting further down the order in the first one-day international (ODI). Before the game was stopped due to darkness, he had scored 34 not out of 25 balls. Rishabh Pant, a young wicketkeeper who also bats, has been under scrutiny recently due to his relatively poor performance with the bat. He would work hard to get back to his old self and prove his detractors wrong. Shreyas Iyer, who bats right-handed, had a magnificent innings in the first one-day international, scoring 80 runs off of 76 balls. Iyer has been performing at an extremely high level, so it is highly improbable that the management will decide to bench him. Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson was removed from the lineup for the second one-day international after scoring 36 runs off 38 balls in the first match of the series. On the other hand, it is possible for him to rejoin the team.
In the first game, Washington Sundar, an all-rounder, played a counterattacking knock worth 37 off of 16 balls before returning an economical spell of 0 for 42 in 10 overs. This was all part of his performance in the first game. There is a good chance that Sundar will keep his spot on the team.
Deepak Chahar: Following his absence from the team for the first game, Chahar rejoined the squad for the second game. However, he did not get the opportunity to bowl because the game that was being played in Hamilton was cancelled due to rain.
Umran Akmal, the express bowler, took two wickets in the opening match but had a high cost per wicket. Despite this, it is highly likely that he will maintain his position on the team.
In the first one-day international, the left-arm bowler Arshdeep Singh was not successful in taking a wicket and let up 68 runs while bowling 8.1 overs. Nevertheless, given his recent performances, the management is most likely going to stand with him.
Yuzvendra Chahal, an experienced leg-spinner, was another player who did not take a wicket in the first game they played. Sanju Samson
