The third and final ODI saw Team India post 296 runs on board batting first after KL Rahul scored his fourth century. Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey played pivotal supporting roles. However, all of this was not enough as Kiwi openers Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls put on a brilliant opening stand of 106 runs. Guptill scored a quickfire 66 runs while Nicholls posted 80 runs. Towards the last stages of the game Colin de Grandhomme tore the Indian bowling attack apart with a blistering 58 runs in just 28 balls to take New Zealand to a brilliant 3-0 whitewash against India.
