Dinesh Karthik's unbeaten 64 eases India to victory in Pune

The teams are tied 1-1 and both sides have gone in with an unchanged playing eleven.

Chasing 338, the Black Caps rode on half-centuries from Colin Munro (75), Kane Williamson (64) and Tom Latham (65), but fell agonizingly short in the spirited chase.

Here are the reasons why India managed to clinch the match and eventually the series.

As soon as Kohli took a single off Mitchell Santner in the 44th over of the innings, the fan jumped on to the ground and started running towards him with a shirt bearing Kohli's name. They were flawless with the throws back in to the keeper.

Latham, who hadn't batted at No 5 in an ODI since December 2014 before the series, was in control of every aspect of his game, and was particularly impressive against India's spinners.

The diminutive leg-spinner was at his best for the entire series but he peaked at the ideal time for the hosts as he ended with figures of 47 runs for 2 wickets in 10 overs.

The partnership between Kohli and Rohit helped India to score 337 runs against New Zealand.

"Great opportunity to win a series in India for the first time, but we're just looking to enjoy ourselves today", Williamson said at the toss at Kanpur's Green Park Stadium.

It was an off day for Bhuvneshwar Kumar who was taken to the cleaners by Colin Munro, but this did not come in his way when he came back to bowl in the death overs as he combined beautifully with Jasprit Bumrah to strangle the New Zealand batting in the final four overs.

Magnificent Virat Kohli added another feather to his illustrious career in the 3rd ODI against New Zealand as he surpassed South African legend and Royal Challengers Bengaluru teammate AB De Villiers to become the fastest batsman to scalp the glorious mark of 9000 runs.
