The last match of the three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is being played at Bay Oval. In the series with an unassailable 2–0 lead, New Zealand's Kane Williamson has decided to bowl first after winning the toss and inviting India to bat.
Such is the playing XI for the last ODI :
In the absence of openers Rohit and Dhawan, the team management has again placed bets on Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw. Both will bat for the team.
Once again the middle order responsibility will be on Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. However, as a change here, Manish Pandey has been given a chance to replace Kedar Jadhav.
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will strengthen the team with bat and ball.
Wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant has not got a chance once again and KL Rahul will be wicket-keeping in this match too.
Indian bowling is not yet in rhythm in the ODI tournament and the bowlers of the team have also not shown discipline. Despite this, there has been no change in the last match of the ODI series. Shami has not got a chance once again and only Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jaspreet Bumrah will handle the bowling attack.
