Team India’s performance in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand has been impressive. In the first ODI, thanks to Shubman Gill’s double century, Team India won by 12 runs. On the other hand, in the second ODI of the series in Raipur, Rohit Brigade defeated the Kiwis by eight wickets in a one-sided match. Now the third ODI between the two teams will be played in Indore on January 24 (Tuesday).
Now there is a chance to become number-1 in ODIs as well.
The Indian team may have won the series, but it would not want to take the third match lightly. If Team India wins the third ODI, then it will wipe out the Kiwi team in this series. With this, Team India will also come first in the ICC ODI rankings. In such a situation, the third ODI match is very important for the Indian team. Remind you that the Indian team is already at number one in the T20 rankings. At the same time, he is sitting at number two in the Test rankings.
