The Indian cricket team will play the third ODI against New Zealand on Wednesday. In this match, Team India’s effort will be to save the series by winning. The chance to win the series had gone from his hand after the second ODI. Because this match played in Hamilton could not be completed due to rain. New Zealand took the lead in the series by winning the first match. Now in such a situation, if India wins the third ODI to be held in Christchurch, then the series will be tied at 1-1. There are many questions regarding the playing-11 for India in this match.
Shikhar Dhawan is captaining the ODI team on this tour. The challenge in front of Dhawan will be to save the team from defeat under his captaincy and at the same time the coach of the team on this tour VVS. Laxman will also try his best to save India from series defeat. Yes, if it rains, then the match can be canceled and this situation will not be good for India.
Dhawan will get Pant out
India had made changes in the playing-11 of the second match. The team included a sixth bowling option and replaced Deepak Hooda but still the team had to face criticism as the team management dropped Sanju Samson and retained Rishabh Pant to bring in Hooda. Pant is continuously failing and in such a situation the team is continuously giving him opportunities while Samson is not getting many opportunities. Samson is repeatedly dropped from the team.
Now it has to be seen whether Dhawan makes a change in the playing-11 of the second ODI and gives Samson a chance by leaving Pant out or not. Samson played the first ODI and scored an inning of 36 runs.

Will there be a change in the New Zealand team?
In the second ODI, New Zealand included Mitchell Bracewell in the playing-11 in place of Adam Milne. Now it has to be seen whether he plays in the third ODI or not. Or the New Zealand team decides to go with four fast bowlers like in the first ODI.
