India and New Zealand meet again in the third ODI at Mount Maunganui on Monday, with visitors leading the five-match series 2-0.
In the second ODI, which was played at the same venue, India registered a 90-run win while they clinched a thumping eight-wicket victory in the series opener at Napier.
The third match of the series will be skipper Virat Kohli's last game of the series as he has been rested for last two ODIs and the T20I series by national selectors. In such a case, Kohli will aim to wrap the series up by the third match.
A comprehensive series win will also help visitors to avenge the 0-4 ODI series loss of 2014 in New Zealand.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Hardik Pandya is also expected to return to the India side for the third ODI.
Pandya, who was suspended by BCCI for his sexist remarks on a chat show was recently allowed to join the team after his ban was provisionally lifted, could replace another seam-bowling all-rounder Vijay Shankar in the team as India look to fine-tune things for the 2019 World Cup.
That's the only change expected in the Indian side with Kohli expected to retain the same middle-order as they aim to finalise their middle-order ahead of the ICC event.
On the other hand, the Bay Oval ODI is a must-win match for New Zealand as they look to stay alive in the series.
Skipper Kane Williamson, who is the top-scorer for the hosts with 84 runs after two ODIs, will hope for his failing batsmen to fire.
Williamson and Doug Bracewell are the only two Kiwi players to cross the 50-run mark in the series after first two matches.
