Once again Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul took up the responsibility and the duo added important runs. However, Shreyas Iyer had to go for 62. KL Rahul, on the other hand, got to his fourth ODI hundred and made 112 before his dismissal. He was accompanied by Manish Pandey who gathered important runs of 42, took the team to 296.
Chasing the same, Guptill and Nicholls added 106 runs for the first wicket and Nicholls carried on after Guptill got for 66. India then quickly dismissed Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor after their cameos. However, Colin De Grandhomme took the game from the visitors with his unbeaten 58 to take the series 3-0.
