The first game of the series was played at the picturesque location of Dharamsala, a beautiful Himalayan city in the lap of nature. A clinical performance by the home side saw them get across the line quite comfortably. Opting to bowl first, India had New Zealand reeling at 7 for 65 at one stage. However, a carry-the-bat effort by Tom Latham and late order blitzkrieg by bowler Tim Southee saw the tourists post a respectable 190 on the board. Hardik Pandya, India s debutant in the game, performed exceptionally well with the ball and earned the Man-of-the-match award, thus becoming the fourth Indian to do so on ODI debut.

The win was India s 108th under maverick skipper MS Dhoni, thus making him the second most successful captain in the history of ODIs after former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting. It was also India s 900th ODI. The fortunes reversed in the next game at Delhi. Though India once again won the toss, the match was won by the visitors. Once again put into bat first, New Zealand were at one stage cruising towards a huge total. Their skipper Kane Williamson finally came to party and scored his first ODI ton on Indian soil, thus helping his side post 242. India vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI, Preview & Predictions.

This big a total, though it was not exactly big, was never chased under lights in Delhi. And the record stood unbroken, as India ended up six runs short of New Zealand s effort in the end. Almost all the Indian batsmen got starts but no one really got going, thus making it difficult in the end. Kedar Jadhav (41), Dhoni (39) and Pandya (36) tried hard to push for a win but India fell agonisingly short of the victory line.

The third ODI offers great chance to both the teams to take lead in the series. New Zealand have the momentum with them now. After losing all the games on this tour, they finally tasted success in the last game. They would hope to keep it going and win the third game at Mohali and take lead in the series. However, they still cannot afford to be sure of their playing XI and get complacent, as the margin of the win was not impressive. India, on the other hand, will look to bring their A game to the table and take lead in the series.
