PREVIEW

 

India have sealed the ODI series in style after registering a comprehensive win over the hosts, New Zealand. Indian have had a tremendous series so far and have outplayed the hosts in all the departments. India would be eyeing for a series whitewash, as they have already clinched the three-match ODI series by 2-0.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have had their opportunities in the series but they failed to cash in at that movement. The Whiteferns would be hoping to register their consolation win as they will be playing for their pride in the final ODI. Their bowling has been the main concern and Indian batting lineup turned out to be too good for the home side. New Zealand needs to play some aggressive cricket in the last ODI to boost their confidence for the upcoming T20I series.

Indian bowlers demolished the Kiwi castle in the second ODI at Bay Oval. The Indian spearhead, Jhulan Goswami led the pace attack to give the initial breakthrough. She finished with the figures of 3 for 22 and helped her team to bundle them for 161 runs. The spin trio of Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma troubled the hosts and picked 6 wickets in total.

Indian started the chase horribly and lost two quick wickets for just 15 runs on the board. Smriti Mandhana is the frontrunner with the bat as she played another match-winning knock to take her side over the line. She stitched a crucial partnership with her skipper, Mithali Raj to seal the ODI series by 2-0. Smriti was declared the Player of the Match for her unbeaten 90 runs.
