Indian batters kept hitting the Black Caps for fours and sixes during the third ODI of the series. The hosts scored 385 after sensational hitting by Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Hardik Pandya.

The boundaries have become smaller in white-ball cricket, which allows a batter to go for big hits.

Iceland Cricket wants longer boundaries to prevent batters from clearing the ground easily.

“We would like to see a game with 150 metre boundaries in all directions. Enough of this smacking it into the crowd nonsense, let’s see some all run sixes and sevens.”

Meanwhile, Rohit and Gill scored centuries as the Men in Blue won the game by 90 runs. Chasing 386, the Kiwis managed just 295.

While Shardul Thakur was named the Player of the Match for his 3 wickets, Shubman Gill bagged the Player of the Series trophy for scoring more than 350 runs.
