That's it from our end folks. We thank you'll for tuning for our live blog for India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI. We hope you'll had a good time here and as well with the game. Do comeback for the T20I series starting on January 27. 

21:30 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Rohit Sharma (2/2):  (On Kuldeep Yadav) Every time I've given him the ball he has given us a breakthrough. He's an important member again. We just need to give him more games under his belt. (On Shubman Gill) His approach is quite similar. He wants to come out and start afresh which is a good sign. As a young player coming into the team, that kind of attitude is important. He's not stuck on his laurels of the past. (On his 30th ODI hundred) It means a lot to me. I've been batting well but it was just about going that extra mile. Today was a good opportunity and I knew we needed a big total batting first. (Mind moving towards becoming number 1 in Tests too?) Honestly speaking, we don't talk too much about that. It's about doing the right things on the field. How we can win the game is what we think of. We know Australia is a quality team to come up against. It won't be an easy challenge but I'm sure we'll be up for it.

21:29 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Rohit Sharma (1/2):  In the last six games I thought most parts of the game we did the right thing. And that is crucial. You've got to do the good thingsfor a long period of time. We were a lot consistent with our approach with the bat and with the ball as well. When you do that, you will do well. Without Siraj and Shami, we wanted to give an opportunity to the guys on the bench. Quality players again - Chahal, we wanted to get him into the mix and Umran, we know what he can do. I wanted to see how we can put them under pressure. I know we had runs on the board but on a ground like this I don't think any total is safe. I thought we bowled really well. We stuck to our plans and held our nerve. Shardul is somebody who has been doing it for a while. People call him 'magician' in the squad and he's done it again.

21:27 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Shubman Gill (Player of the series): It's always nice when you have a series and you get what you want and perform well. It's always satisfying. (Outlook while batting) I don't think I've changed my approach much when I'm out there. It's all about the approach once you get those starts and how often you can convert those into big ones. That's what I'm trying to learn. As soon as I get a start and every opportunity I get, I want to be able to express myself and convert the starts into big ones. It's all about playing according to the situation and not looking at your runs. Just looking at the conditions and looking at the bowler to try and figure out how you can be looking to score all the time. Feels nice. This was a really good wicket to bat on and our bowlers did a really good job to defend this total. At one point, it looked like the match could go either way but our bowlers did really well on this surface. 

21:26 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Shardul Thakur (POTM): I am (very popular), I am very liked by them and even I like my teammates. Everyone is here to play cricket and at some point they are going to come after you. But when they come after you it is important to stay in the moment and not get too ahead of yourself. So at that point I had to tell myself to execute the same ball next time. As a cricketer you have to be ready for all the situations. You have to be ready to bat or bowl at any time. Everyone enjoys batting. In the modern-day world it is all about batting, don't you think so? (grins).

21:25 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Tom Latham: Obviously, the start with the ball. Gill and Rohit got a fantastic partnership up top and I think we did well to pull that back and restrict them to 380. It doesn't sound right but it was a good effort considering the position we were in. I guess, for us to be bowled out in 40 overs, needing 100 off the last 10, we're in a great position but lost too many wickets and that's where it probably went wrong. (Positives) This is our last experience in India before the World Cup. So, I'm sure that the guys who have had a good series will look back on those times and have sort of found their way to play in these conditions. The more they find themselves in these positions and situations, I feel that counts for what's to come in October. (No Tim Southee) It's always when those guys are back in the side but there's opportunities for other guys to put their hands up. It's been a great experience for everyone. The World Cup is a long time away but the more you're put in these situations, the more you learn. Hopefully, we can take the learnings into the T20 series.

21:24 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Hardik Pandya

I've always enjoyed bowling with the new ball. It was a very good day for me but very satisfying to swing the ball both ways which I recently started. It's really helping me. When I came back I had to work on my alighnment. It has allowed me to swing the ball since my action is much straighter. I wanted to bowl the outswinger but since my alignment wasn't right (before) it was going down the leg-side. (How is the body feeling?) Wonderful. The overs were planned but in this series, I've been able to express myself and let my body do all the talking. I need to do extra maintenance but I'm okay to spend a little more time and ensure I'm fully in rhythm. Who was advising whom during his partnership with Shardul?) Shardul has faith in me and lets me dictate terms. It was more combined but I'm grateful to Shardul for listening to me (grins). On this kind of ground, a more challenging pitch would be good. Next time if they can leave a bit of grass or juice in it, it will be good for the fast-bowlers.

Match Summary

India started to defend their humungous score of 285 with the wicket of Finn Allen on the second ball.

Devon Conway (138) and Henry Nicholls (42) resurrected the innings with a 106-run partnershio for the third wicket. Indian bowlers powered by Shardul Thakur chipped in with regular wickets. 

Conway continued the smashing as New Zealand saw hopes in his valiant approach. The southpaw smashed 12 fours and eight sixes en route to third ODI century. Umran Malik managed to get rid off Conway's carnage in the 32nd over. 

Another promising stand between Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner posed challenge for India. However, Kuldeep ensured Bracewell could not take the game deep unlike in Hyderabad. 

Mitchell Santner played a few great shots off Kuldeep before the Black Caps were bowled out for 295 in 41.2 overs.

Earlier in thr game, Indian openers Rohit Sharma (101) and Shubman Gill (112) stitched 212 runs for the first wicket. All-rounder Hardik Pandya's late blitz ensured India posted a mammoth 385 on the scorecard. India have won the bilateral series 3-0 and will move to the T20I series.

Chahal wraps it up for India

Santner went for the slog but toe-ended the shot as Virat Kohli completes the catch at deep mid-wicket. India comprehensively win by 90 runs to script another whitewash on the wall.

Kuldeep on the song

Lockie Ferguson 7 (12 balls) c Rohit Sharma b Kuldeep Yadav

20:46 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Kuldeep Yadav gets the big fish

As Kuldeep saw Bracewell charging down the wickets, the spinner changed his length, pitching it down the leg. Bracewell could not handle his balance well and lost the plot. Although Ishan Kishan had a moment of fumbled, he managed it well to stump out Bracewell. A big sigh of relief for Indian fielders out there.

20:24 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway's flamboyance comes to an end

Conway went for the flick but couldn't execute it properly. It went high up before it landed in Indian skipper Rohit Sharma at mid-wicket. What a splendorous knock from the opener.

20:01 (IST)24 JAN 2023

No means to stop Conway

Conway bent on one knee and smashed Washington Sundar's floated in delivery for a six into the mid-wicket for yet another maxiumum.

An inside out shot was followed over extra cover for a boundary. Conway is certainly unperturbed about what's happening around him. Just playing in his own zone.

NZ 212/5 (29 overs) Devon Conway 130; Shardul Thakur 3/40

19:53 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Thakur picks his third wicket

Shardul Thakur is getting wickets from the one end as Conway blasts from the other. Thakur bowled a cross sem short of the length to baffle Glenn Phillips.  A leading edge was what the middle-order batter could find and a simple catch was on offer for Virat Kohli at short mid-wicket.

Glenn Phillips 5 (7 balls) c Virat Kohli b Shardul Thakur

19:46 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway smashes Thakur for boundaries

Four!!! Conway smashed Thakur for consecutive boundaries to finish the over. Shardul's celebrations were lived shortly as India have a big task of getting Conway out here.

19:43 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Shardul Thakur strikes twice

Shardul Thakur bowled a bumper to Daryl Mitchell who found a slight part of his glove before the ball went to right of Ishan Kishan. There was an appeal but turned down by the umpire. The review confirmed Mitchell had contacted his glove and hence departed back to the dressing room.

New Zealand's stand-in skipper Tom Latham went for a golden duck as he got the toe-end of his bat and the ball flew to mid-off where Hardik Pandya just pouched it before it made any contact with the ball. 

India will take confidence with these two wickets. 

19:36 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Four!!! Conway finds the gap between extra cover and mid-off as Umran Malik overpitched the ball. Conway says no problem I've got this.

19:32 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway completes century in style

Conway pummelled Chahal for successive sixes to reach his third ODI century. What a knock this has been for the southpaw so far.

19:29 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway smashes Umran for six

Six!!! Conway smoked the pull into the deep mid-wicket stand for six. He is batting here with a fearless mindset.

19:21 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway plays good against spin

Conway plays the reverse sweep against Chahal for a boundary. He takes the advantage of Kuldeep's wrong un and smashes him over wide long on for a six. The left-hander is reading well the spinners and finds no challenges in facing them.

19:01 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Kuldeep ends Nicholls' cameo

Nicholls failed to read Kuldeep's mystery ball and the extra pace does the job for Kuldeep. The southpaw was struck in front of pads and challenged the onfield decision of out for LBW. The DRS didn't help the batter and New Zealand lost a review here!

Henry Nicholls 42 (40 balls; three fours and two sixes) lbw b Kuldeep Yadav

18:49 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway in good touch

Nicholls and Conway are dealing with singles against Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar. 

NZ 90/1 (13 overs) Devon Conway 43; Hardik Pandya 1/20

18:28 (IST)24 JAN 2023

18:25 (IST)24 JAN 2023

NZ smashing it all hard

Six!!! The two southpaws are just getting crazier from here on. Nicholls scooped a full toss to clear the fence at fine leg.

Conway smashed a boundary in the same over as New Zealand announce that they are ready for the 386. Just they wanted the momentum to start and that's exactly what Nicholls has provided.

NZ 56/1 (8 overs) Henry Nicholls 28; Hardik Pandya 1/20

18:20 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Conway hits one big

Six!!! Conway this time comes slightly forward to whip it over mid-wicket for his first maximum of the innings. New Zealand looks to challenge the big score and only shots like these will help them to their cause. 

18:17 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Nicholls opens his arms

Six!!! Nicholls shuffled across the stumps to play the scoop shot. Getting the top edge the ball went for the distance behind the wickets.

Four!!! A pull shot followed through the backward square leg for a four. 14 runs from the over.

NZ 12/1 (3 overs) Henry Nicholls 6; Hardik Pandya 1/10

17:51 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Hardik Pandya bowled Finn Allen on the second ball of the over. A back of the length ball outside the off stump had some extra bounce. Allen went to play with soft hands but found an inside edge that chopped on to the stumps. Early blow for the vistiors in the big chase. 

Finn Allen 0 (two balls) b Hardik Pandya

17:47 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Hardik Pandya opens the bowling attack for India. Finn Allen and Devon Conway set to open the innings for New Zealand. 

17:46 (IST)24 JAN 2023

The dew can assist the visitors in their daunting chase of 386. Eyes will be on the likes of Glenn Phillips and Michael Bracewell. India are missing the experience pace of Mohammed Shami and the intent of Mohammed Siraj. Will Umran Malik and Shardul Thakur dent some early blows for the Blackcaps? 

17:16 (IST)24 JAN 2023

New Zealand run out on final delivery of India innings

Kuldeep Yadav missed the swung of his bat and plundered for a bye. Tom Latham lobbed the ball to Lockie Ferguson at the non-striker's end. Ferguson was quick to collect the ball and whip the bails to complete the run out.

Hardik Pandya gets out just after going past 50

Hardik Pandya slammed a four and six off Duffy. Not a good day for the New Zealand pacer. Hardik picked a couple of runs to complete his fifty in 36 balls.

On the fourth ball of the over, Hardik was caught by Conway at long-on. Great contribution by the all-rounder to get India past 350.

Some great hitting by the all-rounder as he swung hard across the line and beats deep mid-wicket for a four.

Shardul Thakur added one more four in the final delivery of the over. Jacob Duffy has conceded 85 runs at an economy of 9.4 with one more over of his to go.

16:30 (IST)24 JAN 2023

Suryakumar departs after a couple of hits

Jacob Duffy picked his second wicket of the day. The New Zealand pacer bowled full and in slot. Suryakumar made the best use of his wrists to add third six but couldn't enough power on it. Devon Conway did a commendable job to move quite comfortably at long-on to take a great catch.
