Virat Kohli Quickest to 9000 ODI Runs

Preview: Coming from a six-wicket victory, India will look to defeat New Zealand in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) to clinch the series at the Green Park on Sunday. India will be aiming to continue their dominance at home while New Zealand have a chance of securing their maiden series win in India.

When is the India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI match?

The 25-year-old used the sweep shot and reverse-sweep superbly and, with a string of textbook cut shots and flicks off his pads against the quicks in Kanpur, showed he's far from a one-trick pony.

He and Henry Nicholls, who put on a 59-run fifth-wicket stand, had their side right in the hunt with four overs to play, with 35 runs from 24 balls required, and with six wickets up their sleeves.

Colin Munro (75), skipper Kane Williamson (64) and Tom Latham (65) were the major contributors for New Zealand. "But, unfortunately, today we couldn't get over the line".

Last year's decider, played exactly a year before this encounter, will either galvanise or haunt the incumbent Black Caps.

Kohli, in 2013, became the fastest player to 5000 ODI runs, equalling West Indies' Viv Richards record, reaching the mark in 114 innings. "The quickly you rectify, the better it is", Rohit said.
