Kyle Jamieson *
KL Rahul *
10:25 hrs: 40 overs bowled!4 runs from the Santner over and India have reached 217 for 4 at the end of the 40 overs. With KL Rahul and Manish Pandey set, India should eye nothing less than 320 from here on.
10:20 hrs: Fifty partnership!A single and it brings up the fifty partnership between KL Rahul and Manish Pandey. They have done a good job after a 100-run stand between Iyer and Rahul.
10:17 hrs: FOUR!Pressure reliving shot from Raul. Santner bowls it down the leg side, Rahul gets down and paddles it fine down the leg side for a single.
10:13 hrs: Rubbing salt into the wounds!New Zealand missed an opportunity to get Rahul run out and then in the next ball he drives one past mid-off for a boundary.
10:04 hrs: FOUR!Poor from Neesham, down the leg side and it’s all way to easy for KL Rahul. He just glances it fine to collect an easy boundary. Neesham has lacked consistency, he has given a boundary ball every over.
9:53 hrs: FOUR! Pleasing to the eye. A fuller length delivery from Neesham, Rahul plays a picture-perfect on drive. And it races away past the diving mid-on fielder.
9:49 hrs: Fifty for KL Rahul!A nice punch deep backward point by KL Rahul. He will comeback for the second run and it brings up his half-century, second of the series.
9:42 hrs: Shreyas Iyer departs for 62!Leading edge and gone! That has come against the run of play. Neesham may have put in extra effort on that delivery, Iyer just closed his bat face a but too early, it took the leading edge and a good catch at mid-wicket from Grandhomme. Key moment in the game.
9:39 hrs: Productive over for India! 11 runs including 2 boundaries. This has been the story of the day. New Zealand have been guilty of bowling too many overs that yielded more than 10 runs, these have just released the pressure on India.
9:35 hrs: Glanced for FOUR!Poor delivery from Bennett, on the pads and all Rahul had to do was just get bat to ball it just races away fine for another boundary.
9:34 hrs: 150 up for India!A tap down fine-leg from KL Rahul, single and the India get to 150 in 29 overs. Going by the old Australian logic, you double the score from the 30-over mark, meaning India should get over 300, which should be a good score on this track.
9:24 hrs: Swept for FOUR! The was predetermined from KL Rahul. The good thing? He got the ideal ball for it. Full and into the pads, he bents down and sweeps it past square-leg for a boundary.
9:20 hrs: Back-to back-fours and that’s the fifty for Shreyas Iyer, his 8th one in ODIs. He has been the find of the series for India. 11 runs from the over and India are slowly but surely taking matters in their own hands.
9:17 hrs: Halfway through!4 runs from Mitchell Santner’s fourth over, looks like India have decided not to take undue risks against Santner. After 25 overs India have reached 127 for 3. This partnership has added 65 runs off 78 balls.
9:13 hrs: 4 singles!Just the 4 singles from Jamieson’s over. He has been good, his extra bouncer has kept the Indian batsmen on their toes.
9:08 hrs:Driven through covers for four! Superb shot from Shreyas Iyer. He is dream form at the moment. A flighted delivery on stump, a bit too full for comfort, Iyer plants his front foot and drives it past the cover fielder for a boundary.
9:04 hrs: Lofted shot for four! Full and wide from Neesham, Iyer had no intentions of keeping that down. He lofts it over the in field and it bounces away from the deep point fielder and goes for a boundary.
8:58 hrs: 100 up for India!A confident tap down to mid on and KL Rahul is off in flash. Complete the singles comfortably, which brings up India’s 100 in 20 overs. The run rate is good, this partnership needs to carry on.
8:50 hrs: Outside edge and FOUR! Shreyas Iyer flashes at that wide one from Neesham and it flies away fine for a boundary.
8:40 hrs: Rahul pulls it for four! A nothing delivery from Southee. Rahul swivels around and pulls it with a wrist-roll backward of square leg. He managed to bisect fine leg and deep square leg to perfection.
8:33 hrs: Iyer goes down the ground for four! Great shot. A fuller length delivery, Iyer presents the full face and just strokes it past the bowler. This is the pair for India. Iyer and Rahul are the men in form.
8:28 hrs: Rahul is away! Great way to get off the mark. A Back of a length and outside off, Rahul rides the bounce and punches it square right between the point and ocver point fielder, great timing from the India keeper-batsman.
8:23 hrs: RUN OUT! That’s a disaster for India, Prithvi Shaw is run out for 40. They never looked like coming back for a second. Shreyas Iyer was jogging and suddenly Shaw decides to go for the second run. Granhomme at fine-leg did a fine job by picking it up cleanly and letting the throw in quickly. Even a dive was not enough for Shaw.
8:19 hrs: Maiden from Bennett!Good comeback from Hamish Bennett after conceding 16 in the previous over. Shreyas Iyer has decided to buy his time and rightly so.
8:10 hrs: Another SIX! 50 up for India! Prithvi Shaw is on fire here. Short again, this time on the off side and no half measures from Shaw, he cuts it over covers for the second six of the over. 16 runs from it, another big over India.
8:08 hrs: Pulled for SIX!What a shot that is. Boy this guy is some talent. An attempted bouncer from Bennett but with no effort, the ball sits up nicely and Shaw rocks back to pull it over square-leg for six.
8:06 hrs: Good over from Jamieson! 3 runs from it. He is using his height to great affect. His line has been outside off but extra bounce has not let Shaw to hit him over he infield.
8:00 hrs: Kohli departs!Virat Kohli has hit it straight down the throat of the third man fielder. He didn’t look comfortable at all. He tried to hit his way out and that is clearly not his way. A short delivery from Bennett, Kohli goes at it with hard hands, gets a top edge, it flies to third man and Jamieson takes a good catch.
7:54 hrs: Up and over and four! The line was wrong from Jamieson, too much width outside off and Prithvi Shaw just upper cuts it over backward point for his second boundary. India looking to be positive despite the early wicket.
7:51 hrs: Productive over for India! 10 runs from it and a clear intention from Kohli of tying to unsettle the rhythm of Tim Southee.
7:48 hrs: Kohli goes big!That came out of nowhere, SIX! What happened there? The ball is seaming around and Virat Kohli just dances down the track and dismisses the length from his presence over the mid-wicket boundary for a six. That is one way to counter the swing. This is exciting stuff.
7:46 hrs: Boundary through point! That was crunched off the backfoot by Prithvi Shaw. Width provided by Jamieson and this time the ball did not bounce much. Shaw will never miss out on those, first boundary of the day.
7:43 hrs: Plays and misses!Time Southee has already won the first battle against Virat Kohli. He has beaten the India captain twice in this over. Quiet uncharacteristic from Kohli to be honest, he flashed on the off side and then went for a flick shot to ball outside off stump.
7:40 hrs: BOWLED! What a start for New Zealand. A peach of a delivery from Jamieson. It pitches on a length, holds its line, Agarwal tries to work it through the on side instead of presenting the full face of the bat and pays the price. The ball hits the top of off stump. Agarwal goes for 1 and Jamieson has given the ideal start to New Zealand.
7:37 hrs: Nice shot for 3! A shortish delivery outside off, Prtigvi Shaw does well to ride the bounce off the ball and punch it through the off-side field. It wasn’t timed perfectly but Shaw and Agaral will comeback for three.
7:33 hrs: Mayank Agarwal gets off the mark! A thick outside edge to thirdman for a single. Not the ideal way to start off your innings but Mayank Agarwal will take it. Both the Indian openers have opened their accounts in the first over.
7:30 hrs: Off the mark straightaway! On the pads and Prithvi Shaw just works it towards the onside. They will come back for two. A nice way to start the innings for the India opener.
7:29 hrs: Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal have another opportunity to stake a claim for the ODI opener’s spot. They will be up against Tim Southee, who has the new ball for New Zealand.
7:24 hrs: Unfamiliar territory for captain Kohli! This is the first time India are facing a whitewash scenario in ODIs under Virat Kohli’s captaincy. Captain Kohli has never gone into a dead rubber with the series already lost. The last time India were whitewashed in a bilateral ODI series involving three or more matches was in 1989 against West Indies.
7:20 hrs:Pitch report! According to VVS Laxman and Scott Styris, the pitch on offer at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui is rock solid beneath. They say there may be assisantance for the seamers early as there is some grass cover but once the moisture dries out it will be good for batting.
7:16 hrs: “We wanted to bat first anyway. As Kane said, it’s a new wicket, looks pretty nice from the outside. Just a hard surface and good grass on it. Plus we wanted to put up a total on the board as we’ve spoken about. We don’t have anything to lose, so we can go out there and play positive cricket,” said India captain Virat Kohli.
7:14 hrs: “Obviously a new surface, yes a few unknowns. We will have to wait and see, usually it’s a good surface. The fight throughout, something that we can be proud of. Staying in there and putting the pressure on the opposition. India has been really pleasing to see, so hopefully we can keep continuing some of those things,” said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.
7:10 hrs: India (Playing XI) Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Lokesh Rahul(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
New Zealand (Playing XI): Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, Hamish Bennett
7:07 hrs: One change for India, Two changes for New Zealand!India have brought in Manish Pandey in place of Kedar Jadhav. New Zealand, on the other hand, have got Williamson in place of Blundell and Mitchell Santner replaces Mark Chapman.
7:00 hrs: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has won the toss and he has decided to bowl first.
6:52 hrs: Can Southee get Kohli again? “It is your job to take wickets...And Virat is a great player and he has been in great form. Especially in run chases he is exceptional, so I guess it’s always nice to see the back of him. I didn’t know that was the most...,” said Tim Southee.
6:46 hrs: ‘Understanding grounds important’!“There are no grounds alike in New Zealand, so it is very important to understand the ground dimensions. How to bowl, etc. In each game, as a bowler, you may have to change your plan because the last game in Auckland, straight boundaries were short,” said India pacer Shardul Thakur ahead of the 3rd ODI.
6:42 hrs: Changes likely for India! Will Rishabh Pant get a game? Will Manish Pandey slot in the middle order? Will India rest Jasprit Bumrah? Chances are all these questions might get an affirmative response as India look to make full use of the final match before the Test series.
6:40 hrs:Kane Williamson to be back! Regular New Zealand captain Kane Williamson had a full session on the eve of the India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI. He is set to return after missing out the final two T20Is and the first two ODIs against India.
