That Pandya's utility is key for India's World Cup preparations was evident both with the ball and on the field.

Another disciplined bowling effort, with a powerful batting display and a well-known result. It was like the script of the T as an all-round performance helped India bid Virat Kohli - heading off for some rest - farewell with a seven-wicket victory to clinch the series in the third ODI in Mount Maunganui on Monday (January 28). As many as four Indian bowlers picked up at least two wickets, new Zealand, 243 in spite of fight 93 of Ross Taylor. A 113-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli dominated the chase the run, before Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik, provided that the fine work.

In contrast to the " start New Zealand, the Indian opener hits the belt right off the bat had to Dhawan, especially, Shikhar, who is in limits. Doug Bracewell was taken on the receiver side, as he for three fours in an over from Dhawan and conceded two more boundaries in his next over. Strong strikes, authoritative drives, or clip the legs off, they were all on display as Dhawan the role of an aggressor played, while Rohit was happy in the backseat.

Dhawan's stay was cut short by Trent Boult, who has the left-hander to edge to first slip. The notice of termination has not tried to truly make an impact on India ' s and tested formula, the coming together of Rohit and Kohli and lead the team forward. Cut the risks, it was with a measured approach, after the powerplay, which meant that the boundaries dried up a little. But their focus was on the denial of new Zealand quick wickets and the you for the quiet time just like their partnership, with both Rohit and Kohli, you can find the ropes regularly, also clearing the fence from Lockie Ferguson to a 100-run stand off 105 deliveries, the 16th-century partnership in ODIs, and their ninth in a chase.

It worked how to speed up a smooth running engine up to a certain Indian agenda of having to, in the middle overs - not a requirement in this game took over and led to two quick wickets. Rohit was stumped off Mitchell Santner, while Kohli delivery over cover, failed with his bid to Boult, the left-of-centre, to have the job, to see to India. Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik served India as well as in the effort, remaining unbeaten over the finish line.

Ambitious drives caused the demise of Colin Munro and Martin Guptill, as India took two wickets inside the powerplay for the sixth time in as many games in the year 2019. India two changes to be made for this game, which again Hardik Pandya to Vijay Shankar and including Karthik for MS Dhoni, tendon, nursing a sore Achilles. The Pandya-program is the key for India's world Cup preparation was obvious, both with the ball and on the field.

Have kept Williamson and Taylor in check with some tight bowling, the all-rounder had a big role in the new Zealand skipper's dismissal. To force the search, the Tempo against Yuzvendra Chahal after a few quiet laps, Williamson flicked midwicket the ball in the air in the direction of where Pandya took a splendid diving catch. To bind the Indian bowlers, excelled in the game of patience, management, new Zealand, down in different intervals. Only five fours and a six were scored during the first powerplay, while the host went through a losing streak of more than 11 overs without a boundary after the 12th, only managing a four, if Ambati Rayudu misfielded.

Both Taylor and Latham were up to the task in the wait and watch game, milking the single and not attempt something risky. Registered half-centuries and were involved in the fifth century, but the scoring rate was under five during their partnership. The pressure to up the ante led to the dismissal of Latham, what Chahal his second wicket. Pandya met twice, followed by the dismissal of Taylor as new Zealand batting, to escape, to lose their last seven wickets for just 65 runs bowled for the third time in as many innings, without their full quota of overs.
