There is little chance of a change in the Indian batting order in the third ODI against New Zealand. Although bowling can see some changes in the bowling department. Fast bowler Umran Malik and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal can be kept in the team. Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Hardik have done well so far while the spinners have also played their part well.
On the other hand, New Zealand will try their best to prevent India from making a clean sweep by winning this match. The team has failed on every front in the series. Their top six batsmen have scored 40 or more runs on only seven occasions in the last 30 innings. In their batting line-up, only Michael Bracewell has been able to make an impact so far.
