The Indian cricket team has touched down in Kanpur and it seems that the players made the most of the day off by trying their hands at indoor activities such as snooker, bowling and air hockey. The Men in Blue were also spotted buying shoes in the local market whereas the visitors went absolutely gaga over the variety of footwear that was on display in Kanpur. 

The third and the final ODI will decide the fate of the two teams as New Zealand won the first ODI by six wickets in Mumbai while the hosts bounced back in the series by clinching the second match in Pune by six wickets.

And ahead of their series-deciding game, Virat Kohli and Co. seem to divert their mind by shopping and indulging in a few indoor activities. 

The BCCI posted a few pictures on its twitter handle where Kohli and MS Dhoni are seen playing snooker and local-boy Kuldeep Yadav trying his hand at air hockey. Meanwhile, a few other players were seen at the bowling alley. 

Young chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, who is the local boy, is expected to play a crucial role in Sunday's match. Kuldeep, who didn't feature in the playing XI in Pune, will surely want to be seen in the Green Park stadium in Kanpur delivering his spells. 

Team India will have to stick to their guns in Kanpur as it known as a batting belter. The toss will be crucial and going by the stats, both teams would want to chase.

The match will begin at 1.30 PM IST.
