Kane Williamson Hails 'Outstanding, Clinical Performance' in Third ODI

Kane Williamson Hails 'Outstanding, Clinical Performance' in Third ODI”

Tim Southee took the big wicket of Virat Kohli, going through the Indian skipper's defence to disturb the stumps, gone for 15 with the visitors at 57/3. Despite missing inspirational skipper Kane Williamson in the line-up due to a shoulder injury, the hosts shrugged off the T20 series debacle to claim the ODI series.

The Indian bowling force was left clueless after a strong batting performance by the Kiwis as they handed India a rare series whitewash after getting humiliated in the T20I series. The Men in Blue suffered a whitewash in an ODI series since their 0-5 defeat against West Indies in 1988/89. After Agarwal departed after scoring 1, it was Prithvi Shaw who flaunted glimpses of his potential by scoring 42-ball 40 before getting dismissed off an unfortunate run out.

There is absolutely no stopping KL Rahul at the moment.

Late flourish from Manish Pandey helped India to a competitive total of 296 for seven.

However, KL Rahul's knock 112 runs boosted India to 296/7 in the allotted fifty overs.

Player of the Match Henry Nicholls, who scored 80 in the final ODI, said his team benefitted from good batting starts during the series. However, the introduction of 6-foot-8 Kyle Jamieson would be his undoing, the debutant taking a wicket with the final ball of his first over in global cricket.

"To come back and win 3-0 after the T20Is is nice". The way (Martin) Guptill played today allowed us to get ahead.

"In the field, we weren't good enough at all", Kohli said after the series.

"The games were not as bad as the scoreline suggests".

"We have a really balanced Test team and we feel we can win the series here, but we need to step on to the park with the right kind of mindset". "Haven't played so badly, but we didn't grab opportunities", he added. They deservedly won 3-0.

"We know how good they are at all formats, but for us the clarity about the roles the guys had was the most important thing", said Williamson in the post-match presentation, reported Cricbuzz.

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.
