Sanju Samson support at FIFA World Cup 2022
Sanju Samson is one of India's best batters, but the team management and selectors have never given him regular chances.

New Zealand won the toss and chose to bowl Wednesday in the third one-day international against India at Hagley Oval.

The toss was delayed for 15 minutes while the covers were removed after light rain but the match is threatened by heavier rain forecast later in the day.

New Zealand leads the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first match at Auckland by seven wickets. The second match at Hamilton was washed out without a result as was one of three Twenty20 internationals between the teams.

New Zealand made only one change to its lineup, naming fast bowler Adam Milne in place of allrounder Michael Bracewell.

India named an unchanged lineup.
