The India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI will be played on Tuesday. This game will have a lot in store as New Zealand will be seeking revenge for the defeat that they got at the hands of the Indian cricket team in Raipur.

Indian Team Preview Before India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI:
The Indian Cricket team is riding high on confidence. And this confidence is not due to the batters. It is due to the bowlers. Mohammed Siraj has been exceptional. In the 20-odd games that he has played in the last year in the white-ball format, he has picked 33 wickets in the powerplay. He can make magic with the leather in his hand and he will be crucial in the India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI.
Mohammed Shami also joined the party in Raipur. The wicket had limited help but the Indian bowlers made effective use of it. The Indian batting line-up is looking solid. It would be great to see Rohit Sharma get a big score under his belt in the India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI. Also, if Suryakumar Yadav could get some time out in the middle.
Indian Cricket Team:
Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Srikar Bharat, Rajat Patidar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Umran Malik

New Zealand Cricket Team Preview Before India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI:
The New Zealand cricket team will be looking for vengeance. With that being said, their batters are the ones who need to contribute.

Finn Allen is unable to express himself.
They at times look short of a good pacer too. The sharpness of Trent Boult is missing. But Lockie Ferguson can do the job for them, he has the ability. Getting in Mark Chapman for one of the openers or in place of Henry Nicholls can also be an option for the India VS New Zealand 3rd ODI.
