India Sealed The Series…..

All important 3rd ODI between India and New Zealand was played at Vadodara. It was indeed a bed of roses for India to seal the five match series 3-0.

Indian Captain again won the toss and once again invited New Zealanders  to bat first.  Then, the same stories began again. Openers did not last long, even middle order failed miserably and New Zealand was 7 down for just 106 on a batting paradise.

N McCullum  and J Franklin put up some fight and showed good resistance before Ashwin removed McCullum for his well made 43. New Zealand was able to score just 224 of their 50 overs which was never going to be enough on such a flat surface.

Indian innings started with no real drama. Captain Gambhir and M. Vijay made sure that India may not loss its way. Gambhir again leaded from the front scoring superbly through all parts of the ground at very good pace.

Gambhir scored his second consecutive hundred from just 88 balls and lead from the front. In their reply, India lost only one wicket that is of Vijay who was run out. No kiwi bowler was able to pick up a wicket.

With this win, India have taken an unbeatable lead of 3-0 in five ODIs series.

Next match will be played at Bangalore on 7th December. Will India be able to clean sweep the series or New Zealand will provide their fans something to cheer about, we will just have to wait and see.
