Martin Guptill: I put up a decent performance myself to get my team through to a defendable total is pretty pleasing. We thought we could have got more at 260 and at the halfway point, bowlers had a job to do which they executed it very well. Virat is a class player, and to get him out early is always a pleasing feeling. No, I didn't think (that 72 will be the highest score in the match) but will take it any day.

Martin Guptill is declared as Man of the Match.

New Zealand captain Williamson: We wanted to build partnerships throughout the innings. 260 wasn't a bad total and we had the extra spinner. The bowling and fielding efforts were also good. We just had to execute our skills well and it worked. All guys executed their roles well. I think so far in this ODI series we have played on a variety of surfaces. It depends on the surface ( on what to expect at Vizag.)

Oct 26, 2016 - 21:45 (IST)

Indian captain Dhoni: I think we gave too many extras and too many runs early on. We could've still done (chased) it provided the number of wickets we had. I felt the wicket was best to bat in the afternoon and it kept getting slower. But with partnerships, this total could have been chased. 5,6,7 are comparatively new. The newer generation likes to play shots and it's important to not curb it, because then they will get into a shell. I think they'll learn. The Delhi game we should've won, we'll have to be at our best in the decider game at Vizag

Tim Southee is the Jana Bankable player of the match.

Oct 26, 2016 - 21:26 (IST)

Mitchell Santner: Good to get a win. We watched how Axar bowled in the first innings. There was a bit of dew in the end, but something for the spinners as well. Its always tough bowling to Virat and Dhoni, but always try to keep it simple to them. I was good today, not always like that. Not trying to do too much, and trying to build up pressure that way.

After 48.4 overs,India 241 ( Dhawal Kulkarni 25)


Kulkarni sets off for a single after guiding the first ball down third man. Umesh hammer the next one down mid-off. Another single off the third, with the task getting bigger for the last-wicket pair now. OUT! That's it! Umesh slices the fourth ball towards the off-side, and gets caught at extra-cover for New Zealand to complete a 19-run win over the hosts! The series is still alive at 2-2!

After 48 overs,India 238/9 ( Dhawal Kulkarni 23, Umesh Yadav 6)


Umesh takes a single off the first ball, handing the strike back to Kulkarni. Dot off the 2nd. Tensions beginning to rise here. Dhawal takes a single in the fourth delivery, after a couple of failed attempts, handing the strike back to a vulnerable Umesh. Another single off the fifth. Kulkarni retians the strike at the end of the over. 


India need 23 to win from 12 balls with 1 wicket in hand.

Ranchi: After taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series, hosts India will take on New Zealand in the fourth game at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi on Wednesday.

After the six-run setback in the second ODI in Delhi, India got back to winning ways on Sunday, thumping the Kiwis by seven wickets at Mohali. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (80) and his Test counterpart Virat Kohli (154 not out) joined forces with a brilliant 151-run third wicket stand to outplay the visitors after they had scored 285 in the first innings.

Going into the fourth game, all eyes will be on India's struggling opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, who have failed to fire in the first three outings. Rohit has managed just 42 runs in the three matches with a dismal average of 14, while Rahane has got starts with scores of 33, 28 and 5, but failed to translate his Test form in the 50-over format of the game.

With the track at the JKSA assisting batsmen, the Ranchi crowd will hope for another batting exhibition from the likes of Rohit, Kohli, Rahane, Manish Pandey and local favourite Dhoni.

Dhoni came out to bat at No 4 in Mohali, and is again expected to do so, with Pandey, Kedar Jadhav and Baroda all-rounder Hardik Pandya to follow.

The bowling department has been very impressive in the series thus far, with seamers Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah assisted by the all-round skills of Pandya. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra and left-armer Axar Patel have also been among the wickets, but it's Maharashtra's Jadhav who has proved to be Dhoni's go-to man in the series so far. With six wickets in his kitty so far, the diminutive part-time off-spinner has emerged as an effective surprise weapon for Dhoni to put the brakes on during the middle overs.

With the selectors retaining the same side for the remaining two games, Dhoni isn't expected to tinker with the winning combination.

On the other hand, Wednesday's encounter will give New Zealand a golden opportunity to draw level and go into the final match with a chance. Barring opener Tom Latham, the Kiwis have failed to ensure a consistent batting effort in the three matches so far. Skipper Kane Williamson, who hit a century in the Delhi ODI, will once again be the focal point of the Kiwi batting, apart from the likes of Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi and James Neesham.

After a dismal Test series, Guptill, who is considered one of the most dangerous openers in ODI cricket, has failed to click on all three occasions.

To add to their woes, the Black Caps lack variety in their bowling. Pacers Tim Southee, Trent Boult Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry have been far from impressive in the sub-continental conditions. Despite having three spinners in Mitchell Santner, Anton Devcich and Ish Sodhi at his disposal, Williamson's poor luck at the toss has kept him from using their services to the fullest, while dew has also played a part in all the three matches so far.

Squads:

India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain/wicketkeeper), Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Hardik Pandya, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jayant Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Luke Ronchi (wicketkeeper), Corey Anderson, Tim Southee, Martin Guptill, BJ Watling (wicketkeeper), Matt Henry, Ish Sodhi, Mitchell Santner, James Neesham, Anton Devcich, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell
