The Indian skipper Virat Kohli could not clear the cover fielder in the 32nd over of third ODI in India vs New Zealand 2019. Kohli had timed the ball to perfection but Henry Nicholls took a good catch while jumping in the air. Hitherto, Virat Kohli had scored his 49th ODI hundred and stroked a free-flowing knock of 60 runs. Kohli scored six fours and one six in his good knock.

In fact, Kohli scored two scores of 40s in the ongoing series. Meanwhile, Kohli has been rested for the remaining two One Day Internationals and the T20I series. Hence, Rohit Sharma is going to hold the captaincy reins in the remaining matches on the New Zealand tour. Kohli has been rested to manage his workload.

Thus, when Kohli got out, India was already in the shoo-in position. Meanwhile, India cruised to another comfortable win by seven wickets with seven overs in hand.

Virat Kohli added 113 runs with his deputy Rohit Sharma, who scored 62 runs. The Indian opener had scored a good knock of 87 runs in the second ODI against New Zealand. Thus, he was awarded the Man of the match in the second match.

Earlier, Mohammed Shami bowled with fire in the third ODI. Shami scalped three wickets and gave away only 41 runs in his nine overs. Thus, he was awarded the Man of the match for the second time in three matches.

On the other hand, Hardik Pandya also made a roaring comeback. Pandya scalped two wickets and took a brilliant catch to dismiss New Zealand captain Kane Williamson. Furthermore, Yuzvendra Chahal took two wickets whereas Kuldeep Yadav went wicketless.
