India’s skipper Rohit Sharma says that in the last six matches they have played, they have done well in most parts of the game. Adds that they have been consistent with both the bat and the ball and that always pays off. Mentions that they wanted to give chances to the players on the bench while Shami and Siraj were not playing and says that although they had a good total on the board, they think bowlers bowl well under pressure. Says Shardul bowled brilliantly and adds that he is called a magician in the team. Also applauds Kuldeep Yadav and says that every time he has given the ball to Kuldeep, he has delivered and he just needs to give more games under his belt. Also credits Gill for the way he performed and adds that Gill’s ability to start over in each innings is quite good and also says it means a lot to get the 30th century on a personal note. States that the Australia series would be a great challenge, but they would like to give their best in that series.
Shubman Gill is PLAYER OF THE SERIES for scoring 360 runs from 3 innings including a century and a double century. He says it always feels good to perform. Adds that he hasn’t changed his approach and it’s all about turning starts into big ones. Shares that he tries to play according to the situation and it’s about how to score against a certain bowler. Thinks it was a good wicket to hit and bowlers bowl very well on this wicket.
Shardul Thakur is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He says he is loved by his teammates. Tells that everyone is here to play cricket and at some point the opponent will come after him and it is important to believe in one’s plans in such situations. Mentions that it is essential to be ready to perform in any situation and signs off by saying that he likes to hit.
New Zealand skipper Tom Latham says the start with the ball was not good. Adds that it was a good effort to get it from there. Thinks it went wrong for them to be bowled out within 40 overs. Feels that the guys exposed in such conditions will help us in the World Cup. Also says they are building good depth. Ends by saying he hopes his side can take the lessons to the T20I series.
Time for the presentation.
Hardik Pandya is in for a flash interview. He says he always enjoys bowling the new ball. Adds that it gives him satisfaction when he can swing the ball both ways. Feels working on alignment has enabled him to swing the ball. Shares that his body feels great and that he was able to express himself in this series. Mentions that Shardul Thakur showed confidence in him during their partnership. Ends by saying he would like a challenging wicket with some grass at this venue.
New Zealand, on the other hand, also had an inexperienced bowling attack and India took full advantage of that. At one point India looked to be over 400 but the positive for the Kiwis from this game would be how they limited India under 400. Three wickets each to their pacers, Tickner and Duffy, but both were very expensive. With the bat, Conway was absolutely fantastic hitting 138 off 100 balls, but he fought a lonely battle as no designated hitter could support him for a long time. The rest of the hitters like Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell and Bracewell all got starts but they needed more than just starts to chase a total of 386 and unfortunately for the Kiwis they couldn’t muster that in this game.
India was put to bat by Latham after winning the toss on a very flat deck in the hope that chasing would be easier under light. However, India has done very well batting first in the last few games and they did that again in this game. They managed to put together a mammoth total thanks to a 212-run opening stand with Rohit and Gill crushing both centuries. Hardik also provided the finishing touch with the bat and then backed it up with a wicket in Finn Allen’s first over. However, Conway and Nicholls put up a nice century stand and it was Kuldeep Yadav who broke that partnership in the 15th over. However, Kiwis still went at a decent pace, but Shardul Thakur, the man with the golden arm, concocted a match-changing spell with three wickets in quick succession to break the backbone of this chase. Kuldeep and Chahal also finished with five wickets between them, again showing their wicket-taking abilities and generally a convincing bowling performance from India on a flat deck despite the absence of Siraj and Shami.
India whitewashed Kiwis in this three match ODI series and this will give them a lot of confidence with the World Cup not far away. They also move to the top of the ICC ODI rankings as they continue their dominance at home. New Zealand, on the other hand, would feel they have not performed to their full potential in this series and need to go back to the drawing board to better handle Indian conditions when they return here later in the year for a marquee.
