Team India defeated New Zealand in the third ODI and whitewashed the Black Caps in the three match series at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
The tourists won the coin toss and elected to bowl first, but the decision went horribly wrong, with India putting in a strong batting performance. The opening duo of Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma completely dominated the proceedings, with both reaching their respective centuries.
While Gill hit 112 from 78 balls using 13 fours and 5 sixes, captain Rohit scored 101 from 85 throws, including 9 fours and 6 sixes. All-rounder Hardik Pandaya provided the late bloom by hitting 54 off 38 balls, hitting 3 fours and as many maximums to take India’s total to 385/9 in 50 overs.
In response, New Zealand’s Devon Conway crushed a fighting century, but failed to get enough support from the rest of the batsmen as the visitors fell short by 90 runs. Conway scored 138 off 100 balls, including 12 fours and 8 sixes. For the hosts, Shardul Thakur (3/45) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/62) took three wickets each while Yuzvendra Chahal (2/43) picked up two scalps.
Shardul was named Player of the Match for his brilliant performance, while opener Shubman was named Player of the Series for his consistent showing across the three ODIs.
Here’s how Twitter responded:
