IND vs NZ 3rd ODI Highlights: The 3rd and final ODI was played in Indore's Holkar Cricket Stadium

India vs NZ Live: Rohit Sharma after the game

I thought in the last six games we played we did most part rights and that is the key in 50-over games. We were consistent too. WIthout Siraj and Shami I knew we wanted to give chances to people on the bench. Wanted to get Chahal and Umran in the mix. We wanted to see how they react under pressure. I don't think any score is safe here. Shardul has been doing it for a while. People call him magician in the squad. Just need to get more games under his belt. The wrist spinners get better with game time. Gill's approach is quite similar. As a youngster, coming into the team and have that attitude is great. I've been batting well, so it was just about going that extra mile. The pitch was good today. Honestly we don't talk much about rankings. We discuss mainly about doing the right things on the field. Australia is a quality team and things won't be easy for us but I think we are ready for the (BGT) series.

India vs NZ Live: Shubman Gill Player Of the series

Feels nice when you have a series and you perform well. I don't think my approach has changed after the double hundred. It's all about getting a start and converting every game. Just to be in the situation and looking to score helps convert those starts for me. Our bowlers bowled really well on this wicket.

India vs NZ Live: Shardul Thakur Player Of the Match

I am liked by my teammates (chuckles). When the opponents come after you it's important to stay in the moment. I don't think too much. You got to be ready for different situations. Everyone enjoys batting. In modern day world it's all about batting.

21:20 (IST)24 Jan 2023
India vs NZ Live: Tom Latham after the game

I think the start with the ball wasn't great. Fantastic partnership, but we pulled it back to 380. We were in a great position in the chase, but we lost too many wickets. This is our last experience before the World Cup, so we have got an idea. We wanted to build depth and it's been a great experience for everyone. The more you are in these situations, the more you learn

India vs NZ Live: Hardik Pandya after the game

I have always enjoyed bowling with the new ball, it was a very good day for me. I swung the ball both ways. I have always enjoyed bowling with the new ball. Since I have comeback, I have changed my alignment and it has worked for me. This series has been where I have been able to express myself. I came fully prepared and it has gone well. (On Shardul) Lucky that Shardul had faith in me, because of his faith in me, we combined and I am grateful to him that he listened to me. If they leave some grass on the pitch next time, it will be good for the bowlers. I still think you would be able to see 350-360 runs on this pitch.
