“I forgot what we wanted to do, had a lot of discussions with the team about the toss decision, just wanted to challenge ourselves in difficult situations, but we will bowl first.

India cruised to a massive 8-wicket win over New Zealand after bowling out the visitors for just 108 runs. Good luck Gill (40 not out) and Rohit Sharma (51) are the team’s highest run-scoring batsmen.
At the end of the match, Rohit reflected on his team’s performance, saying: “In the last five matches, the bowlers have really stepped up. Whatever we have asked them to do, they have stepped up and delivered. You don’t usually see this kind of movement. Seam movement in India, you usually see in India. See it out there. These guys have some serious skills, they work really hard and it’s great to see them get rewarded. We had practice yesterday and the ball bounced under the lights. We knew if they were 250 or more, it might be. It was challenging for us but it was a matter of choosing to chase. We batted first in the last match, so the idea was to challenge ourselves.”
India have already decided the fate of the series with a 2-0 lead. In all likelihood, some changes may be made to the XI for the final match.
