The world cup is a long away, and we will be taking one match at a time: Tom Latham

New Zealand will look to forget the three-match ODI series as a bad memory and look to focus on the upcoming T20I series against the Men in Blue after being thrashed 3-0. While the Kiwi side put up a commendable performance in the first ODI losing to a narrow margin of 12 runs.

The team let down their supporters with a poor display in the second game where they folded for just 108 runs on the board. 

The team looked in a strong position to chase down the desired total in the third came, but once again their batters could not cope under the pressure and collapsed like a deck of cards after Conway's dismissal.

New Zealand's skipper Tom Latham who was leading the side in absence of regular skipper Tim Southee talked about the outcome from the series, and while he did say his side had a disappointing run, there is still time to prepare for the upcoming World Cup, 

"I think obviously the start of it was wrong for us. It was great on our part to restrict them to 385 runs after the brilliant start that they got. It was great to play in the series. Fingers crossed, but the world cup is a long away, and we will be taking one match at a time. It will be the T20I series next and we would look to put in a good show in the series."

New Zealand will be in action against the hosts in a three-match T20I series starting 27th January at Ranchi. India will be led by Hardik Pandya with a bulk of senior players rested for the all-important Border Gavaskar series starting 9th February.
