Cricket Match Preview:

Teams will take on each other in the third cricket ODI at Mount Maunganui. By the time this piece is being written, India are leading the series by 1-0 whereas, in the second cricket ODI, India had set 325 runs for New Zealand to chase. Considering the result of the first cricket ODI, if anybody was expecting a close fight between India and New Zealand, they would have been disappointed with the latter’s performance in the first cricket game. It was completely India’s show in the first cricket game, where after winning the toss and choosing to bat first, nothing went right for the hosts.

India bowled brilliantly right from the beginning and did not allow the dangerous New Zealand opening batting pair of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro to get away from them. While New Zealand’s top order was cleaned up by Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal soon struck to dismiss Ross Taylor and Tom Latham and that broke the back of New Zealand’s batting. Despite the best effort of skipper Kane Williamson, New Zealand’s innings could not recover and were bowled out for a low total of 157 runs. In reply, India did not break a sweat and finished the run chase with ample overs remaining and 8 wickets in hand.

In the second cricket ODI, India chose to bat first on winning the toss and aided by good knocks from Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, they put up 324 runs. After looking a bit rusty in the first game of cricket, New Zealand once again began slowly in the second cricket ODI. However, they came back strongly to restrict India to an under 350 total.

India would be quietly happy with their performance so far in the cricket series. They would like to win this cricket series to feel really confident about their chances in the upcoming cricket World Cup. In the past year, they have won the series in South Africa and Australia and it would be icing on the cake if they can win the series in New Zealand as well.

Cricket Match Information:

India will take on New Zealand in the third ODI cricket game at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. India won the first game of cricket handsomely at Napier and had set up 325 runs to chase for New Zealand in the second cricket ODI. They defeated the host nation by 8 wickets in the first cricket ODI and are looking in a very good form.

New Zealand:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

New Zealand were not at their best in the first game of cricket. They made some changes to their lineup in the second ODI by bringing in Ish Sodhi and Colin de Grandhomme. Our prediction is they will go with the same playing eleven as their last cricket game.   

Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:

  • Martin Guptill
  • Colin Munro
  • Kane Williamson
  • Ross Taylor
  • Henry Nicholls
  • Doug Bracewell
  • Tom Latham
  • Colin de Granhomme
  • Ish Sodhi
  • Trent Boult
  • Lockie Ferguson


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India decided to play both Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in this cricket series so far. Keeping in mind the upcoming cricket World Cup, they may decide to continue with their changes in playing eleven. However, our prediction is of the same playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • MS Dhoni
  • Ambati Rayudu
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Vijay Shankar
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Mohammad Shami

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Virat Kohli will be leaving New Zealand after this cricket game. It has been quite a series for him according to his standards. Our prediction is of a big knock from him in the next cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

India scored 324 runs in the last international cricket game played here. Our prediction is of another high-scoring cricket game between the two sides. Conditions are expected to be dry.
