3rd ODI, In numbers: New Zealand inflict India's first whitewash in 31 years




New Zealand were domineering throughout, at an extent that Jasprit Bumrah looked clueless even with his awkward angles while Virat Kohli slumped to his first low in five years. And even stood well ahead of their Indian counterparts in all the departments. The openers got them off to a flier in all the three matches while India lost quick wickets at the top. The No.3 provided solidarity while Kohli struggled to manage only 75 runs in the series. The only thing that stood common for both was the middle-order lineup. While for New Zealand it was a medium of carrying the strong momentum provided by the top-order batters, for India, they had to heavily depend on KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer for the bulk of runs. And in the bowling, unlike for most of India’s opponents, New Zealand pacers fared better while the likes of Bumrah, Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini struggled to pick wickets.
