India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI Highlights:

15:09 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Grandhomme finishes run chase

Colin de Grandhomme finishes the run chase with a boundary. Grandhomme remains unbeaten for 58 from 28 deliveries. An easy win for hosts as they finish off the run chase with 17 balls to spare. Jasprit Bumrah remains wicketless today. The T20I series belonged to India. The ODI series belonged to New Zealand as they clean sweep the hosts by 3-0. NZ - 300/5 after 47.1 overs

15:03 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Grandhomme hits 21-ball fifty

Colin de Grandhomme makes a mockery of Shardul Thakur's bowling. Thakur continues to trust his short deliveries and Grandhomme continues to punish him. 20 runs from the over including three fours and one six. He reaches his fourth ODI half-century from just 21 deliveries. This is the third joint-fastest fifty against India in ODIs. What an inning, what a comeback it has been. NZ - 293/5 after 46 overs

14:57 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Easy going for New Zealand

Virat Kohli brings back Jasprit Bumrah early as Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur bowl expensive overs. The over from Bumrah does not make a difference either. Grandhomme hits his low full toss for a boundary. Four more singles from the over. New Zealand need 24 runs from 30 balls. NZ - 273/5 after 45 overs

14:54 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Latham-Grandhomme in control of run chase

Navdeep Saini has gone for 68 runs in his eight overs already. Tom Latham hits a boundary from the over, not taking any risks after that, working for singles. NZ - 265/5 after 44 overs

14:48 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Poor bowling from Thakur

Despite his short balls going for boundaries, Shardul Thakur continues to bowl them. At that pace, these deliveries are freebies for Colin de Grandhomme. The Kiwi all-rounder whacks them on the leg side for a six and a four. Tom Latham scores a boundary as well. 15 runs from Thakur's over. It's a tough time to be captain. Virat Kohli can't have his two fast bowlers struggling when he has only five bowlers in the team. NZ - 255/5 after 43 overs

14:44 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Grandhomme goes big

Believe it or not, Colin de Grandhomme's six off Yuzvendra Chahal helped him post his highest score in this tour (including T20Is and ODIs). 12 runs from Chahal's last over. He finishes with three wickets for 47 runs including a maiden over. Grandhomme is now batting on 14. Before this innings, he had scored 14 runs on the whole tour. NZ - 240/5 after 42 overs

14:39 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Run out chance missed

Mayank Agarwal's throw from the deep did not have enough power in it. India are trying to slow down the flow of runs and Jasprit Bumrah has been trying to do that. Just 5 runs from Bumrah's eighth over. NZ - 228/5 after 41 overs

14:35 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Kohli furious over Saini

Colin de Grandhomme takes the aerial route on the last ball of the over from Yuzvendra Chahal. It could have been a half chance had Navdeep Saini attempted it but he waited for it and fielded it on the bounce. Virat Kohli is not happy with that effort. NZ - 223/5 after 40 overs

14:33 (IST)11 Feb 2020

An easy catch for Virat Kohli at short mid-wicket. James Neesham's unnecessary attack on Yuzvendra Chahal takes his wicket. Chahal takes his third wicket. What a bowling performance it has been from the leg-spinner. NZ - 220/5 after 39.3 overs

14:24 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Jadeja ends his spell

Ravindra Jadeja has done exceptionally well today with the ball. Just one single from the over. James Neesham was happy to play out the rest of the over. Jadeja finishes his quota of 10 overs with one wicket for 45 runs. NZ - 216/4 after 38 overs

14:22 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Saini's bad run continues

At the start of the over, Jasprit Bumrah had a few suggestions for a struggling Navdeep Saini in the presence of skipper Virat Kohli. However, Saini leaked 8 runs from the over including a boundary off Tom Latham's bat. Saini needs to be economical in his remaining three overs if India are to win this match. NZ - 215/4 after 37 overs 

14:14 (IST)11 Feb 2020

Shardul Thakur bangs it short and outside off stump to James Neesham. A loosener asking to be hit by James Neesham and he hits it over the fielder at the fence for a maximum. First boundary since Ross Taylor's wicket. NZ - 199/4 after35 overs

14:05 (IST)11 Feb 2020
HUGE SCALP for Thakur!

The set batsman is gone. Henry Nicholls goes poking towards the back of the length delivery outside off stump from Shardul Thakur and ends up edging it to the wicketkeeper. Nicholls for 80. The game is officially wide open now. The required run rate of 6.29 can soon convert to 8-9 runs per over. NZ - 189/4 after 32.5 overs

13:59 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Taylor falls cheaply

Ross Taylor did not look comfortable in the crease at all. Taylor was itching to get off the strike and in the process chipped one straight to the short cover fielder Virat Kohli. Taylor departs for 7. Henry Nicholls' role as an anchor becomes more crucial now. NZ - 186/3 after 31.5 overs

13:52 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Rahul almost pulls off a run out

KL Rahul took off his glove in a flash and threw the ball at the non-striker's end and hitting the stumps. But, Ross Taylor managed to get inside the crease despite mix-up with Henry Nicholls. Taylor has been vulnerable early in his innings. NZ - 175/2 after 30 overs

13:47 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Expensive from Saini

Navdeep Saini seems to be having an off day. Saini bowls short, into the comfort zone of Henry Nicholls and he hits him for two consecutive boundaries. India missing a sixth bowler here, again! NZ - 170/2 after 29 overs

13:38 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Chahal's magic works again

Yuzvendra Chahal breaks another partnership. Kane Williamson gets out trying to work the ball towards the leg side but finds the short mid-wicket fielder Mayank Agarwal. Soft dismissal for Williamson as he departs for 22 on his return after injury. IND - 159/2 after 27.1 overs

13:35 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Eventful over from Saini

Navdeep Saini bowls a no ball. Well, not exactly. Saini's foot was well behind the line while landing. Saini bowls a wonderful slower delivery to follow it up, no run off free hit.. The umpire calls another no ball, this one was correct. Nicholls pulls away the short of the length delivery for a boundary towards deep mid-wicket making full use of the free hit delivery. An overthrow from Virat Kohli in the over as well venting out his frustration when Nicholls was standing in the crease. 10 runs from the over. NZ - 159/1 after 27 overs

13:20 (IST)11 Feb 2020

Henry Nicholls works the ball between the mid-on and mid-wicket fielder for a boundary to get to his half-century from 72 deliveries. Nicholls has anchored the run chase well so far. NZ - 135/1 after 23 overs

13:17 (IST)11 Feb 2020
Run out chance missed

India needed that run out. Pressure was created by spinners with short balls. Henry Nicholls was looking for a quick single off Jasprit Bumrah and was taking on the mid on fielder Shardul Thakur. Nicholls would have been way short of the non-striker's end had the throw from Thakur been on target. Virat Kohli is obviously not impressed with that effort.
