India will be playing against New Zealand in the third and final ODI of the series at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. The match is scheduled for 24th January 2023 at 1:30 PM IST. 

The match is of little consequence as far as the series is concerned. India have already won two matches and sealed the series. They will look to test out their squad depth leading to the ODI World Cup that is to take place later this year. 

Meanwhile, New Zealand will try and win this match to end affairs on a high and take some confidence into the T20I series. 

Before the match starts let us look at some important stats, the prime player picks and the best-predicted XIs for the fantasy contests of this match. 

Ground Stats: Holkar Stadium, Indore

The Holkar Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for team India. They have played five matches here and have won all five of them. A good batting pitch can be expected, however, the pitch might be a bit slow in the first innings.

IND vs NZ, Match 3: Top Five Picks

  1. Shubman Gill (IND): Shubman Gill has been in fine form in the series. In both the matches he looked in brilliant touch and is a must pick for the match.
  2. Michael Bracewell (NZ): Michael Bracewell has been in a brilliant all-round form in this tournament. He is bowling some decent overs in the middle-phase and is doing a great job with the bat. 
  3. Mohammed Siraj (IND): The Indian speedster has been the go to bowler for the team in ODI format for the last year or so. With the kind of wicket taking form Siraj is in, he should be one of the safest picks for the match. 
  4. Mitchell Santner (IND): Santners has been one of the few positives that New Zealand can take from this series. He has made his presence felt not only with the ball but also with the bat. 
  5. Mohammed Shami (IND): The Indian pacer has been dong his job under the radar. With the Indian batters taking all the limelight away, Shami's potent opening spell has not been that much in discussion. But Mohammed Shami's presence in the fantasy XI ensures some guaranteed points.
