Kanpur ODI: Kiwis elect to bowl in series-decider

Kanpur ODI: Kiwis elect to bowl in series-decider

Rohit scored 147 and Kohli was dismissed for 113 and it was their partnership which was the primary reason behind India's eventual score of 337.

India edged past New Zealand in a cliffhanger to clinch the third ODI and hence grabbed the 3-match series, 2-1.

With an eye on the three-match Twenty20 series between the sides, starting in Delhi on Thursday morning (NZT), it's no wonder Black Caps captain Kane Williamson hailed Latham's form since dropping down the order.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (capt), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee and Trent Boult.

New Zealand capitulated for 79, leaving any alarm-jolted fans at home with barely time to put the kettle on or drop the handle on the toaster before the game was over.

The 25-year-old used the sweep shot and reverse-sweep superbly and, with a string of textbook cut shots and flicks off his pads against the quicks in Kanpur, showed he's far from a one-trick pony.

India set a stiff target of 338 for New Zealand and the visitors put in a spirited chase but at the end, India's death overs bowling won the deal for them. He faced 138 balls and hit 18 fours and two sixes.

"It's been a great series to be a part of. But, unfortunately, today we couldn't get over the line".

The move to play Tom Latham down the order worked well in Mumbai as the left-hander forced the Indian wrist spinners to change their length.

Williamson said it was "hard to swallow", but he was clearly holding his head high.

Kohli became the fastest batsman ever on Sunday to complete 9,000 ODI runs - a feat that he achieved in his 202nd match and 194th innings for India.

Kohli said, "It looks a good wicket".
