Rohit, who was adjudged Man of the Match, was not in a good touch in the previous matches but in the third match, played to his potential and slammed a beautifully crafted ton which helped India beat the visitors by six runs. The Indian skipper didn't stop there and went on to score his 32nd ODI century in his 202nd ODI encounter. While the whole team enjoyed some off time from their grueling schedule, five Indian players including Hardik Pandya and skipper Virat Kohli skipped the optional practice session ahead of the series decider.

In the end, New Zealand's fearless chase of the target fell just six runs short to hand India a 2-1 victory after a hard-fought series.

After scoring 337 runs for the loss of four wickets, Indian bowlers restricted New Zealand to 331 runs for the loss of seven wickets. For the Indians, it was an optional practice session and captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya were among the five team members who chose to skip practice. Kohli also breached the 9000-run mark in one-day cricket, the 19th batsman in history to do so, becoming the fastest to achieve the feat.

Southee, Adam Milne and Mitchell Santner claimed two wickets each.
