On Tuesday, January 24, at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore, Team India defeated New Zealand by another significant margin of 90 runs to complete a 3-0 whitewash. India overtook England to take the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings with the victory at the Holkar Cricket Stadium.
Earlier in the day, India's opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started out on fire, slamming 212 runs between them before the captain was dismissed. The 212-run partnership between Rohit and Gill is also the most by an opening pair against New Zealand in ODIs.
Gill scored 112 runs in 78 deliveries, while Rohit scored 101 runs off 85 balls, his second-fastest ODI ton. At the young age of 23, Gill's century also helped the batsman to tie Pakistan's Babar Azam for the world record for most runs scored (360 runs) in a three-match ODI series. Hardik Pandya, an all-rounder, joined the fray and struck a magnificent half-century to help the Men in Blue post a massive total of 385/9 in their 50 overs.
Unfortunately for the visitors, their two centurions were the only positive aspect of the entire ODI series. In the third ODI, Devon Conway was the lone fighter for the Black Caps, smashing a magnificent century (138 off 100 deliveries), but his efforts were completely in vain because none of his teammates were able to hang in there and the Indian bowlers were simply too good for them to handle.
Brief scores: India 385/9 in 50 overs (Shubman Gill 112, Rohit Sharma 101; Blair Tickner 3 for 76) beat New Zealand 295 (Devon Conway 138; Shardul Thakur 3-45) by 90 runs
