New Zealand Cricket Team lost the 3rd ODI by 90 runs as the team was bundled out for 295 runs in 41.2 overs. Devon Conway smashed a turbulent century as the left-handed batter scored 138 runs in 100 balls where he struck 12 fours and 8 sixes and was in sublime touch.
New Zealand would rue the fact that they allowed Rohit Sharma & Shubman Gill to stitch a humongous partnership of 212 runs in 26.1 overs which somewhat took the game away from them. There were high expectations from Lockie Ferguson to provide the break-throughs but the speedster went wicketless.
Skipper Tom Latham would be crestfallen with his own performance. The left-handed batter got out on the very first ball of the match where he checked his shorts. It won’t be wrong to say that the burden of captaincy has affected his natural game.
The Men in Blue would be booming with confidence as not many expected India to whitewash the might Kiwis. Due to this win, India now is the No.1 Ranked ODI Team. Skipper Rohit Sharma would be mightily pleased with the performance as the team showed fighting spirit.
I think the start with the ball wasn’t great- Tom Latham
During post match presentation, Tom Latham was asked about the match. “I think the start with the ball wasn’t great. Fantastic partnership, but we pulled it back to 380. We were in a great position in the chase, but we lost too many wickets. This is our last experience before the World Cup, so we have got an idea.” said Tom Latham.
A great experience for everyone- Tom Latham
“We wanted to build depth and it’s been a great experience for everyone. The more you are in these situations, the more you learn.” he added.
