Pitch report- IND vs NZ 3rd ODI

The Ground has not featured many ODIs on it. The first ODI was played in 2014 and the ground generally assists the fast bowlers. The seam bowlers get help from the surface and the ball swings well. To add on, as the weather in Christchurch is forecasted to receive showers and stay cloudy, the fast bowlers will likely make life difficult for the batters, especially in the initial overs. The average score at this venue is in the 230s. 

Will toss play a role?

There are 15 ODIs played at this venue. There have been 8 times that a team batting first has won, while there have been 7 occasions where the chasing side has prevailed. 

Highest and lowest totals

The highest total at the venue was scored by Scotland against Canada. The Scottish side scored a mammoth 341/9 in an ODI in 2014. The lowest total at the venue is scored by West Indies (99/9 in 2017).

India's squad:

Shikhar Dhawan(c), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar
