After back to back thumping victories Team India will look to seal the series when they take on New Zealand in the third ODI at Bay Oval, Mount Maungauni. So far it has been a one sided series and India have completely outplayed the hosts in all three departments of the game. India's spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are the big difference between these two sides.
On the other hand, New Zealand's top order batsmen Martin Guptil, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor all need to convert their starts. In bowling, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Lockie Fergueson all have been below average and haven't taken wickets with the new ball.
