A confident Indian side will look to wrap up the five-match ODI series with a win at Bay Oval

A confident Indian side will look to wrap up the five-match ODI series with a win at Bay Oval

Pandya, who is facing an inquiry for his loose talk during a TV show, did not get to bat in the third ODI against New Zealand on Monday but the 25-year-old bowled and fielded with objective, taking two crucial wickets and a brilliant catch. But while New Zealand are now down, they are not yet out and it would be foolish to discount the home side just yet.

Indian bowler Mohammed Shami took three wickets including the prized scalp of Taylor courtesy of a caught behind.

"And we just haven't been up to it, if we're brutally honest, with bat and ball".

While Rayudu, who was on Monday suspended by the ICC from bowling in worldwide cricket, started off aggressively, Karthik was welcomed by a bouncer and the Tamil Nadu stumper didn't look back from there on, playing his natural game and eventually sealing off the deal in India's favour.

That was after leading the team in sacks in 2017 and being selected to his first Pro Bowl. On the year, Howard registered 35 tackles, seven interceptions, and 12 pass breakups.

New Zealand were on for a more competitive total in Mount Maunganui after Ross Taylor and Tom Latham's 119-run partnership left them 178 for three with 13 overs left.

India now have extended their winning streak in ODIs to five matches and Black Caps captain Kane Williamson credited the tourists for their consistent run. "If you lose wickets in those first two or three overs, they squeeze the new batter and it becomes very tough".

Mohammed Shami has struck five times in the series thus far while Bhuvneshwar Kumar got two key wickets in the second ODI, meaning India's bowling line-up poses threats across the board.

Interestingly, Rayudu's action received comparisons to Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan from Fox Cricket's commentary team.

New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor put his team's series defeat at the hands of India down to the enormous quality of their opposition.

Hamilton hosts the fourth game in the series on Thursday.

"The series is gone but there's still a lot of pride in the team, playing for New Zealand".

Taylor said India were obviously a step-up in opposition. The Indian side put up a good all-round performance to beat the home side. Far from being dead rubbers, they are opportunities for the team to figure out combinations and try out new personnel, with the World Cup just months away.
