Indian team is currently taking the challenge of New Zealand in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. The hosts won the toss and asked visitors to bat first.


India posted 296-6 in their allotted 50 overs, thanks to KL Rahul, who smashed his career’s fourth hundred and took the team to a competitive total. He scored 112 off 113 balls with nine fours and two sixes.

Apart from the wicket-keeper, middle-order batsman Manish Pandey (42 off 48 balls) too shined in the match. He added 107 runs for the fifth wicket with Rahul. Before him, India’s No.4 Shreyas Iyer played a crucial knock of 62 and took his team out of early troubles.


For New Zealand, pacer Hamish Bennett was the most successful bowler. He picked four important wickets for 64 in his 10 overs. A debutant in the previous match Kyle Jamieson and all-rounder James Neesham scalped one wicket each.
