  • Tim Southee has taken four wickets against India in this series so far

Rohit scored 147 and Kohli was dismissed for 113 and it was their partnership which was the primary reason behind India's eventual score of 337. The visitors have displayed resilience and fighting power to keep the three-match series alive till the decider, even though they could not make a match of it in the second ODI in Pune.

Magnificent Virat Kohli added another feather to his illustrious career in the 3rd ODI against New Zealand as he surpassed South African legend and Royal Challengers Bengaluru teammate AB De Villiers to become the fastest batsman to scalp the glorious mark of 9000 runs.

"Particularly Tom Latham, from opening the batting and coming into the middle-order, taking that role, adopting it like he has and batting so beautifully is a great sign for us".

In the underway New Zealand series, Virat Kohli is the leading run scorer with 263 runs in 3 games at an average of astounding 87.66.

The 25-year-old used the sweep shot and reverse-sweep superbly and, with a string of textbook cut shots and flicks off his pads against the quicks in Kanpur, showed he's far from a one-trick pony. He faced 138 balls and hit 18 fours and two sixes. "But, unfortunately, today we couldn't get over the line".

The explosion follows just two weeks after more than 350 people were killed in a truck bombing in the city, including 15 children. The second explosion "occurred at the ex-parliament house where there were (military) forces", a police officer told Reuters.

The batsmen have perfected their job, and now it on the Indian bowling attack to convert the good display into a thumping victory in the series decider.

Williamson said it was "hard to swallow", but he was clearly holding his head high.

The run machine Kohli also brought up his 32nd ODI ton and became the first captain to smash six tons in a calendar year.

New Zealand: Ross Taylor, Tim Southee, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (captain), Adam Milne, Colin de Grandhomme, Colin Munro, Trent Boult, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Mitchell Santner, Henry Nicholls, George Worker, Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Glenn Phillips, Tom Bruce.
