  • So, that brings us to an end of today's coverage. New Zealand pushed India against the wall till the very end but just faltered in the last few overs. They shouldn't be too disappointed with themselves. The Indian cricket team, on the other side, would be proud of the way they bounced back after the Mumbai loss. Three-match series are fun, eh? We certainly are going to see a lot of those in the future. 

    Anyways, New Zealand's tour is not over yet. The Kiwis will be playing three T20Is; the first of which will be played on 1st November in Delhi. Do join us for that game. For now, it's time to say good bye. Take care. Good night! 

  • Virat Kohli, India captain and also the Man of the Series: Credit to New Zealand, they fought hard in this series and forced us to play our best cricket. Credit to the skill and character that they possess. You've to tell yourself that the bowler knows best because he too wants to win the game When there is dew on the grounds, even 22 fielders seem less, glad that the boys pulled it off. Well, to be fair on them the batting eased out it. 350+ was our aim but the pitch slowed out and the scuffed up ball made it difficult. The aim is always to win games and win the series and in that course you end up doing something personally it feels good acts as an incentive to do well. Very happy we could get another one in the bag, and move forward to the T20s. Little bit of better feeling with you doing well in team's win. These things are very hard to ignore when you're seeing it on the TV and the aim is to do well for the team.

  • Man of the Match, Rohit Sharma: Feels good when your team wins and you contribute in the win. I am happy with the way we played. New Zealand were very competitive, and it wasn't easy to come and win. We had to be at our best to win the game. I thought today was a perfect game. I was watching the pre-match analysis where they said my head was falling off, so I worked slightly on it. That helped. My head was falling a bit, and wasn't coming into the line of the ball.  Every hundred is special, I was just trying to do certain things. But what I was working on came off well. (Assistant coach) Sanjay Bangar helped my work on some of these things, and that's when results are more pleasing and that's why I was happy.

  • Anish Anand, Firstpost correspondent at Green Park, Kanpur

    A fantastic game of cricket. The match went all the way but the Indian pacers finished the job for their team. Probably this is the last time Kanpur enjoyed an International match and the Indian cricket team made it worth remembering. 
     
     

  • Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain: Fantastic series and it was played in the right spirit too. Credit to Virat and his team they were the better side 'JUST'. Lot of promising signs for us but we need to do really well to beat these guys. Tom Latham batted with such clarity in his mind, it was great to watch. Bowlers stuck it out as well, not an easy place for seam bowlers. You look back at little moments but as I said India played better cricket. Mitchell Santner is not bad (When asked for another spinner in the side)

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is the seventh consecutive bilateral ODI series win for India which is a record for Indian cricket team.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is also the seventh consecutive bilateral ODI series win for Virat Kohli which is also the most for an Indian captain.
     
     

  • What a thrilling ODI series we have had and fitting decider! Outstanding cricket from both sides. The Kanpur crowd have their money's worth. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    New Zealand in a bilateral ODI series in India against India:
     
    1988 - Lost (0-4)
    1995 - Lost (2-3)
    1999 - Lost (2-3)
    2010 - Lost (0-5)
    2016 - Lost (2-3)
    2017 - Lost (1-2)

  • After 50 overs,New Zealand 331/7 ( Colin de Grandhomme 8 , Tim Southee 4)

    Fifteen runs was always going to be too much to get off Bumrah's over. He ends up giving 8 runs, even though Southee gets a boundary to third man off the last ball isn't enough for the visitors. 

    India win by 6 runs and clinch the series 2-1.

    Fine, fine spell of death bowling by Kumar and Bumrah but you would say Latham's run out was the turning point.

    Bumrah finished with 3 wickets for 47 runs in his 10 overs

  • India have prevailed! Win by 6 runs and take the series 2-1.

  • OUT! High full toss but just under the waist. Santner cannot hit the screws out off it, ends up holding out to Dhawan at deep mid wicket, who takes a good catch and with that you would say India have it in their bag.

    Santner c Dhawan b Bumrah 9

  • After 49 overs,New Zealand 323/6 ( Colin de Grandhomme 6 , Mitchell Santner 7)

    10 runs come off Kumar's over. India have 15 runs in the bank with the best death bowler --Bumrah-- to bowl the final over! Santner's six keeps the slender hopes alive, but it will take a hell of an effort to get over the line. Last ball off Kumar's over was narrowly close to being called a wide but the umpire didn't strecth his arms and was probably right in his decision too.

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    What a game! All about pressure. Batsmen, bowler, fielders, all affected. May be even umpire! Down to the wire.
     
     

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar has to give atleast 10 runs to Bumrah for the last over given the fact that New Zealand still have four wickets in hand. 
     
     

  • SIX! ANNND, it's gone just over long on's fielder's reach. What a time to hit a six! Santner with a big shot!

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    Pressure got that wicket. Latham had a brain freeze surely, attempting a bye when the ball went directly to wicket keeper Dhoni. Sent back as a calm Dhoni, probably shocked by the attempt fumbled briefly, kept his wits and threw to bowler Bumrah. Luckily Bumrah's throw worked. He could have run at taken off bails. Its not over.
     
     

  • 25 off 12 needed. Kumar to bowl the penultimate over!

  • Anish Anand, Firstpost correspondent at Green Park, Kanpur

    The crowd can't sit now. Thrilling stuff.

  • After 48 overs,New Zealand 313/6 ( Colin de Grandhomme 4 , Mitchell Santner 0)

    Bumrah to bowl the 48th over! Tense moments these. Right in the blockhole to begin with. India review on the 4th ball of the over, Stuck Latham on pads with no bat involved but there was no bat involved. Unsucessful review and India lose their only review as well. Latham stays, but not for long as a horrendous miscommunication between the two batsmen brings leads to fatal run out. Bumrah hits the stumps at the non-striker's end and India are back in it.

  • OUT! De Grandhomme misses the ball that was right in the blockhole he didn't connect it well, Dhoni passes it to the bowler Bumrah who hits the stumps to bring an end to Latham's innings. What a sad, sad end!

    Latham run out Bumrah 65 

  • After 47 overs,New Zealand 308/5 ( Tom Latham (W) 64 , Colin de Grandhomme 2)

    This over has opened the game again. A wicket and five runs off the over! Kumar has bowled a great over here!

  • Anish Anand, Firstpost correspondent at Green Park, Kanpur

    Well, after that wicket, Kanpur is saying, "mauka hai jeetne ka." 
     
     

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    Superb yorker from Bhuvi. Another twist in this nail-biting match.
     
     

  • OUT! Bowled! Exactly what India needed. Yorker, on the leg stump to end Nicholls' cameo!

    H Nicholls b Bhuvneshwar 37 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is New Zealand's game to lose now. 35 off 24 balls. It is gettable until and unless they play some dramatic cricket. 
     
     

  • Anish Anand, Firstpost correspondent at Green Park, Kanpur

    After that six off Bumrah, Kanpur is saying, 'Nikal gaya match. Ab nahin ho payega'.

  • After 46 overs,New Zealand 303/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 62 , Henry Nicholls 36)

    Bumrah expectedly starts nice and full. Latham bunts it for one. Change of pace to Nicholls, he goes for the slog doesn't connect pops off his gloves they run a single. Latham gets another single to long on. Bumrah delivers a full toss, hits Nicholls high on the bat but still run two to long on. Slower ball is picked by Nicholls and smashes it to deep square leg fence. Another boundary to finish the over.

  • SIX! Nicholls trying play the lap sweep, doesn't get it where he would have liked. It has gone over the keeper's head and over the ropes as well. Not a bowler's game!

  • FOUR! Nicholls picks the slower ball this time and dismisses it to deep square leg boundary, Dhawan cannot pull it back into play.

  • Here's Bumrah! Round the wicket to Latham.

  • After 45 overs,New Zealand 288/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 60 , Henry Nicholls 23)

    End of Chahal's spell and he has bowled a fine over by the leggie. Gave away only five runs away. Latham respecting the bowler too. Playing on the merit and not trying anything fancy. We're in for a tight finish. 50 off last five.

    10 overs 47 runs for 2 wickets

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Tom Latham's last six ODI innings:
     
    54 (64)
    104 (111)
    84 (92)
    103* (102)
    38 (62)
    57* (42)

  • After 44 overs,New Zealand 283/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 57 , Henry Nicholls 21)

    Kiwis need 55 off 36 balls. Without any big hits, these two have brought the target relatively in Kiwi's favour. 11 runs come off Hardik's over. Kohli has 3 from Bumrah, it is the other 3 he needs to worry about.

  • FOUR! Nicholls makes room and pounds it through the point region.

  • FOUR! Another cracking shot! Played it in the air but what spectacular timing on that one. Incredible batting this!

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    NZ have really batted superbly these last few overs. Their intent is clear: they are going after the bowling all the time. The pressure is on India's bowlers. The dew and the aggression of the Kiwi batsmen is getting to them. 9 runs an over in 7 overs from here looks possible.
     
     

  • Hardik Pandya has the ball he is given the responsibility to bowl the 44th over.

  • After 43 overs,New Zealand 272/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 51 , Henry Nicholls 16)

    With couple of sweeps that came off and the couple that didn't come off, NZ have managed to take 12 off Chahal's over. This is excellent batting, especially by the senior pro Tom Latham.

  • FOUR! Henry Nicholls with a sweep to long-leg. It was air borne but had the legs to beat the fielder.

  • FIFTY! What a player, Latham has become. Mind you he started his career as an opener and now countering the spin in the middle oreder, helping NZ chase down totals. Still he has got some work to do but gets his half-century 2nd of the series with his favourite sweep shot to the boundary off just 37 balls.

  • After 42 overs,New Zealand 260/4 ( Tom Latham (W) 45 , Henry Nicholls 11)

    Jadhav's over does not really help the Indian cause. Two boundaries and a couple of runs help Kiwis take 12 off the over.

  • FOUR! Great use of the feet. Nicholls skips down the pitch and hits it in the safest place on the cricketing field, right over Jadhav's head, gets another boundary.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Jasprit Bumrah is at his best today. He conceded only a run and took the big wicket of Ross Taylor in the 41st over and that can be the difference at the end. New Zealand require 90 runs from nine overs now.
     
     

  • FOUR! Loosener to start with. Short and wide which is smack through the offside by Nicholls.

  • Hello! Wait! Jadhav is brough back into the 42nd over. Masterstroke or Gamble, let's find out?

  • Vedam Jaishankar, Journalist and commentator

    The additional fielder outside the circle available in the last 10 overs should come in handy for India. NZ need to score at 10 runs an over and with just 6 wickets in hand.
     
     

India vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI updates: India hold on to a cliffhanger win by six runs and also take the series 2-1. What a thrilling ODI series we have had and fitting decider! Outstanding cricket from both sides. The Kanpur crowd have their money's worth.

Batsmen Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav will only add further depth to the Indian batting.

In the bowling department, Kohli will fancy including wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the playing XI, who belongs from the host venue to impose threat on the opposition. Yadav was replaced by Axar Patel in the previous match.

Middle-order batsman Tom Latham who has proved his mettle in the series will be one of the key in the visitors batting.

In bowling, the Blackcaps will hope experienced pacers Tim Southee and Trent Boult to provide their side with early breakthroughs.
