Team India produced another clinical effort to defeat New Zealand by 90 runs in the third and final ODI at Holkar Stadium and completed a series whitewash in style.
It is the second consecutive ODI series clean sweep by the Men in Blue and they once again showcased their dominance at home in the bilateral series.
Captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill's century knocks laid the foundation for a big total for the hosts with their stand of 212. The hosts looked poised for their biggest-ever ODI total in the 50-overs format (418 is their highest). But the middle-order collapse and some quality bowling from Blackcaps after the departure of Indian openers ensured the hosts could only manage to post 385 for the loss of 9 wickets.
New Zealand were also off to a flying start despite losing opener Finn Allen early. Devon Conway smashed a 100-ball 138 and kept his team in the hunt.
The southpaw couldn't find support from the other end as he kept losing partners from the other end as Henry Nicholls (42) was the second-highest scorer for his team. NZ were bundled out for 295 in 41.2 overs.
Kuldeep Yadav (3/62) and Shardul Thakur (3/45) were the pick of the bowlers for India.
With this win, the Men in Blue have climbed to the top of the ODI rankings.
