Going into the One Day International (ODI) series, India were high on confidence after whitewashing New Zealand in the five-match Twenty-20 International (T20I) series.

But back-to-back defeats in the three-match series have brought the Virat Kohli-led side back to the reality. And they will be hoping to get back to the winning track in the last outing at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Saturday.

Though Virat Kohli has said that the ODIs in this calendar year, which will have  T20 World Cup later and is also a part of the two-year-long World Test Championship, he will definitely be looking to avert the embarrassment of a series whitewash.

For New Zealand, three-match series was an opportunity for them to regain the lost glory after the humiliation in the shortest format. And they seem to have done exactly the same by outnumbering India in all departments.
