Watch India vs New Zealand cricket highlights of the third One Day International, IND vs NZ highlights today on 23 October 2016, New Zealand vs India video highlights. India lost the previous ODI which was their first defeat at the hands of New Zealand after 13 long years. At 20 October 2016, people at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium watched a true thriller which went to the last over. In the end New Zealand successfully maintained their nerves relaxed and won the game in a thrilling fashion. They batted first and after many twists and turns, they were able to score a fighting total of 242 runs. Kane Williamson played a great innings of 118 runs in a game where all others failed to make an impact. Only three other players managed to enter double figures. It was one partnership between Williamson and Latham that saved them from another humiliating defeat. Both made a 138-runs stand for third wicket and saved the game for the team.

The five-match series is still alive for both teams. They have won one ODI each so far which gives today’s game a special status. This afternoon, India won the toss and opted to bowl first. They hope to restrict the opposition to a smaller total. However they must be anxious not to repeat the last game’s performance in bowling which allowed Kiwis to amass such a big total.

Many critics point to India’s abnormal dependence on Virat Kohli in batting department which makes other batsmen play irresponsible shots. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Rahane and Dhoni must perform to shake off this troubling dependence on one player.

For Kiwis, Boult played a key role in their victory in previous match. He gave away only 25 runs in 10 overs and took two important wickets. Others also performed well and Tim Southee’s three wickets made victory possible for the team. It was a team level effort in bowling and fielding which worked.
