Mohammed Siraj And Mohammed Shami Rested For the Third ODI:

Rohit Sharma thinks the pitch looks good, and the team wants to take advantage of it. He also recognizes that there are still areas where the squad can improve and sees this match as an opportunity to do so.

Additionally, he has stated that Umran Malik and Yuzvendra Chahal are in for the game while Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami are resting.

“We would have batted first, as a team we want to get out and play well. It is a great ground to play in, every time we come here it has been a good score. What is important is to give chance to some of the new guys who haven’t had a game and see how they go. We have got two changes – Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj are out, and Umran and Chahal are in.”

The New Zealand team has also made some roster changes for the forthcoming match. Doug Bracewell has been brought in to replace Henry Shipley in the starting XI.
