India vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI: Toss result and playing 11s for today's match, umpires list and pitch report

The rain-marred India-New Zealand series has perhaps seen the players spend more time off the field than on it during the scheduled game period.

Unfortunately, for fans and players of both teams, the forecast for the third and final ODI at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Wednesday, November 30, is not too bright either. Rain is likely to have a severe impact on the contest.

Being 0-1 down in the series, Team India want the game to happen more than hosts New Zealand. The visitors came up with a pretty disappointing effort to go down by seven wickets in the first match of the series in Auckland.

Despite the openers featuring in a century stand, the Men in Blue could only put up 306/7, batting first. A Tom Latham masterclass then saw the Kiwis chase down the total in dominating fashion.

India displayed better intent during their batting stint in Hamilton on Sunday, November 27, but only a handful of overs were possible before the match was abandoned. They will be keen to build on the minor gains during the final ODI in Christchurch, weather permitting, of course.

According to Ashish Nehra and Murali Kartik, the pitch looks quite green. It is a firm surface, but there is a lot of live grass on this. With cloud cover, there will be a lot in it for the pacers.
