Team India has faced two consecutive defeats in their opening ODIs against New Zealand who will anticipate clinching the series by winning the third one. The Blue Shirts have the quality to bounce back and will be resting on their middle order batting to perform well and get them back in the series.
Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are performing superbly with the bat for the Black Caps whereas Corey Anderson holds the world record of the fastest ODI ton on 36 mere balls, he carries a killing instinct and has the ability to lift his side within no time.
Virat Kohli is at his best and has scored most of the runs in two games including a century in the first ODI and MS Dhoni is holding the middle order with courage whereas Rohit Shrama can play a vital role.
