We have two more matches to go but the series is done and dusted. Such has been India's domination in this series. Ross Taylor and Tom Latham did put up a big partnership for New Zealand today but failures of other players meant India were once again asked to chase down an easy total. Mohammed Shami was the pick of bowlers with three for 41 while Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal took two wickets each. In reply. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli scored fifties while Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik chipped in with valuable contributions to lead India to series win. India will be expected to now experiment with their lineup going forward in the series.

That's it from us for today. See you on 31 January for the fourth ODI. Goodbye!

15:13 (IST)

This was New Zealand’s fifth consecutive defeat against India in ODIs. This is India’s second ODI series win in New Zealand after 3-1 win in 2009 under MS Dhoni.

Virat Kohli, Indian captainAmazing. Three clinical games for us. Couldn't have asked for anything better. We really enjoy ourselves and the guys believe in their skills and they are showing it on the field. The relentlessness of the side is something that really pleases me. When a guy doesn't get runs in a couple of games is hungry to perform. So, that's the kind of confidence we carry in the team right now; in the batting department as well as the bowling department. Hopefully we can win the last two games. I haven't had a break for a long time. It's been a very hectic Australian tour and now I go into the break very happy with the series sealed at 3-0. Someone, someday will come and take your place that's how it goes. Some outstanding talent coming up. You saw Prithvi Shaw grabbing his opportunity with both hands, Shubhman is a really exciting talent, saw him bat in the nets and I wasn't even 10 percent of what Shubhman is at 19.

14:59 (IST)

Kane Williamson, losing captain: They are a very good side and there's a reason why they are at top of the world. They are teaching us a lesson and we need to raise our game. We need to make some adjustments. The consistency about their plans and the way they forced some mistakes I guess we gotta be better than that. The margins are not large in white cricket but it does require a lot of improvement. I think everybody is wanting to contribute more. The partnership with Taylor and Latham was great. We are good with ball but need early wickets to put pressure.

14:58 (IST)

Shami: It is really difficult to bowl against the wind. One (bowler) comes with the wind and the other is against the wind. It is difficult but not too hard, says it is the part of the job. Bhuvi at the other end was also a great help. Sticking to areas where we want to bowl is the key.

Mohammed Shami is adjudged the Player of the Match

Quite an easy ride this has been for India as they clinch the series with two games to go. Kiwis needed to win this match to stay alive in the service but the fight was missing. Batsmen disappointed once again as a unit and the bowlers were ordinary as India steamrolled the hosts for a ODI series win.

14:51 (IST)

3-0. What a comfortable ride this has been for India. Lot of tick marks in this series. Rayudu has come to the party. DK looked in good touch despite not playing the first two games. Pandya had a fantastic outing without having to bat. Not to mention, another superb bowling performance. Virat Kohli can happily fly back home tonight!

India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ), Latest Updates, 3rd ODI: Quite an easy ride this has been for India as they clinch the series with two games to go. Kiwis needed to win this match to stay alive in the service but the fight was missing. Batsmen disappointed once again as a unit and the bowlers were ordinary as India steamrolled the hosts for a ODI series win.

Preview 3rd ODI: A well-deserved break on the cards, India captain Virat Kohli will be aiming to seal the five-match series when his team square off against a confused New Zealand in the third ODI here Monday.

Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik steered India to a 7-wicket with 77-run unbeaten stand

Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik steered India to a 7-wicket with 77-run unbeaten stand

The Indian captain has been given a break as part of BCCI's workload management programme and he would ensure that he finishes his assignment Down Under on a high after the maiden Test and ODI victories in Australia.

An unassailable 3-0 lead would be a fitting revenge to India's abject 0-4 humiliation during the 2014 limited overs series.

One of the primary focus of Monday's encounter could be inclusion of Indian cricket's latest enfant terrible Hardik Pandya, who is coming back from provisional suspension for his loose talk on a TV chat show.

Pandya's presence lends solidity and balance to the side and the skipper has time and again admitted it.

The Baroda all rounder's replacement Vijay Shankar is a decent cricketer but is yet to possess the X factor that Pandya has.

That Shankar was given only two overs in the second ODI is an example that he is still not ready to shoulder extra responsibility.

Pandya is a few clicks quicker than Shankar whose bowling in the three ODIs that he has played has not been penetrative.

Pandya can also bat at No 6 if situation arises and his busy approach in batting can also get the scoreboard ticking in middle overs as the skipper wants.

Otherwise Indian team doesn't require much tinkering.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have looked clueless against India's wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who accounted for 12 of the 20 wickets in the last two ODIs.

Kuldeep has looked the most menacing as he claimed two four-wicket hauls in the first two ODIs, while Chahal returned with two wickets on both the matches.

Seamers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami also have done their job well, getting crucial breakthroughs for the team.

India's batting too have complemented the bowlers, looking rock solid in both the games with Shikhar Dhawan's return to form lending the team the much-needed support at the top.

If he had scored an unbeaten 75 in the first ODI, he cracked a 67-ball 66 in the second game.

Vice captain Rohit Sharma, who had flopped in the first ODI, too entertained the spectators here with a strokeful 87 en route his 14th century stand with opening partner Dhawan.

Skipper Kohli also looked in good nick in both the matches, while Ambati Rayudu seemed to have found his mojo back with a 49-ball 47 on Saturday.

An ageless Mahendra Singh Dhoni too continued his rampaging run with yet another unbeaten 33-ball 48 to take India across the 300-mark, while Kedar Jadhav has also grabbed the role of a finisher with both hands.

While the batting looked in place, there is a slight concern about the visitors fifth bowler's slot where Pandya might fit in.

India are yet to finalise their middle-order ahead of the World Cup.

Once Kohli takes a break following the third ODI, Dinesh Karthik might get a place to boost the middle-order in the skipper's absence.

The team management might also think of handing an India debut to the very talented Shubman Gill.

For Black Caps, captain Kane Williamson, who had top-scored in the first ODI, looked good during his short stay in the second ODI, while all-rounder Doug Bracewell tried to take the game to the wires with a 46-ball 57 but none of the other batters could convert their starts.

"There's two games in a row now where we've not had control at any stage, but we need to take small steps,'' Williamson said.

"Some of the dismissals were a result of us going too hard maybe. If you have wickets in hand, you never know. But we didn't have wickets in hand. Those are the lessons that we need to take ahead."

Teams (from):

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Shubman Gill, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya.
