On Tuesday, India will lock horns with New Zealand in the final ODI of the three-match series in Indore. Having won the first two games convincingly, India have already clinched the series. 

Meanwhile, former Indian opener Aakash Chopra has predicted a high-scoring encounter in Indore on Tuesday. 

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Chopra reckoned that the track in Indore always remains flat and expected India to score 400 if they bat first. 


Here's what Chopra stated

"What can we expect from this match? The Indian team has already lived up to expectations. I won't be surprised if India score 400 if they get to bat first, that's what I feel. 200-225 runs are scored in T20s here,

"The opposition team is weak, the pitch is extremely flat and the ground is very small. So when such an opportunity comes, all batters say they should improve their records because an international match is an international match."

The surface in Indore indeed assists batters throughout the day. However, there will be a little help for the spinners, so it will be interesting to see how the batters fare on this deck. 

With the series in their kitty, India might make some changes to their playing XI for this face-off. So, if the Men in Blue go with a deep batting lineup, they might actually end up scoring a mammoth total in this match.
