India Tour of New Zealand, 2022: New Zealand vs India – 3rd ODI Preview and Updates

Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav helped India get back on track in the second One-Day International after losing Shikhar Dhawan early in a rain-shortened match. Play was eventually suspended due to rain.

Suryakumar Yadav is in top form, while Gill appears to be in fantastic shape. These two would be vying for spots in the World Cup roster.

Both New Zealand and India will be looking to identify the right XI in the 50-over format with less than a year till the next ODI World Cup. India will need to win the third and final ODI of the series at Hagley Oval.

The grass pitch here will be beneficial to the bowlers who showed so much potential. It’s anticipated that the bat and ball will compete fairly. As a result, this game offers a good chance to gauge the strength of the current team.

The 3rd ODI between New Zealand vs India will take place on November 30th, 2022 at Hagley Oval, Christchurch.

New Zealand vs India

New Zealand (Match Odds – 1.62):


Kane Williamson will first be content with his own performance. In spite of his struggles in the game’s shortest format, he had a strong return as the ODI series got underway in Auckland.

The captain carried out his well-known duties. and built a match-winning combination in the middle order with the dependable Tom Latham. In Christchurch, the weather would be different.

The bowlers have a decent chance to recover here, so both teams will be put to the test. Matt Henry appears to be establishing himself on the team. He performed admirably when bowling in Auckland on a challenging surface, and he was equally impressive in the second ODI.

Together with Tim Southee, he will be a crucial bowler to watch out for. Milne was replaced by Michael Bracewell in the most recent game, and while he is a promising batsman, his bowling abilities may not be sufficient against India.

His inclusion in the team gives the batting order more depth, but as a fifth bowler, New Zealand could run into difficulty. The Blackcaps would benefit more by keeping Adam Milne for the last contest.

The two who are most likely to be costly are Milne and Ferguson. The captain’s job can occasionally be challenging due to the team’s inconsistent line and lengths, despite the great pace.

Glenn Phillips, Devon Conway, and Finn Allen must immediately get used to this format. It’s possible that New Zealand will consider including these batsmen in future ODI teams.

In the third and final ODI of the series, one of these players is likely to shine and produce a noteworthy innings.

Full Squad:

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson(c), Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham(w), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Michael Bracewell, Matt Henry, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, James Neesham, Adam Milne

India (Match Odds – 2.30):


It looks that Shikhar Dhawan still has one job remaining. In ODI or T20I series when the regulars are unavailable, captain the up-and-coming guys.

The southpaw opener missed the previous two T20 World Cups and is extremely unlikely to participate in the World Cup in 2023. India will be keeping an eye on Gujarat Titans batsman Gill because his performance will be crucial.

If he consistently performs well, he might succeed KL Rahul at the top. Another batsman who has been the subject of discussion for a while is Sanju Samson.

In the second ODI, he was dropped, and Deepak Hooda was given a chance to play. The Indian management has recently shown faith in Hooda, and it appears that they will continue to do so.

Dropping Samson makes sense given where he was sent to bat in the batting order. If Rishabh Pant’s poor form continues, India should have a backup plan. And Denmark will not be among the contenders for the ODI World Cup.

Sanju Samson needs more games and the same kind of support that India has shown Pant and other players. The top order of Gill, Iyer, and Suryakumar is India’s strength in this lineup.

These three are in top form and will be crucial for India. Deepak Chahar has returned to the squad and, along with Arshdeep Singh, can take early wickets with his swing bowling.

Full Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan(c), Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sanju Samson, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur

Due to rain, Deepak Chahar was unable to bowl in the second ODI. He is one of the best swing exponents, averaging 27.67 with the ball. In this format, Chahar also has a couple of fifties to his name. Chahar is the recommended player to back given the favourable conditions.
