Having won the first two matches and taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ODI series, the Indian team will now face New Zealand at the Holkar Stadium where they have won all the ODIs they have played so far. Although New Zealand will be facing hosts India for the first time in the limited overs One Day International format at the Holkar Stadium, the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) stadium’s 17-year-old record has been in India’s favor. Hosts India have been victorious in all the five One Day Internationals held at this ground between 2006 and 2017, defeating England, West Indies, South Africa and Australia in this format. On the other hand, New Zealand has played only one match at Holkar Stadium as a Test match so far.
