2022: NZ vs. IND: Three records were broken in the third one-day international in Christchurch on November 3

The third one-day international between India and New Zealand ended in a tie, giving New Zealand their second consecutive series victory over India.

Due to their seven-wicket victory in the opening ODI in Auckland, the hosts, with their full team, have won the three-match ODI series 1-0. The subsequent second match was postponed due to inclement weather.

In the third ODI of the rubber, the Indian batsmen managed only 219 runs before being run out in 47.3 overs after being put to bat first. Pacers Daryl Mitchell and Adam Milne stole the show for New Zealand, each taking three wickets.

The hosts got off to a great start thanks to the openers, especially Finn Allen, who got 57 off 54 balls to chase 220. After 18 overs, New Zealand was 104/1 and in a good position when the rain got strong enough to stop play.

Only two additional overs, and we would have had an outcome, with New Zealand far ahead – by 50 runs – on the Duckworth-Lewis-System (DLS) score. Sadly, the team led by Kane Williamson was forced to settle for a draw instead.

However, a slew of records was set during the third One-Day International on Wednesday between India and New Zealand. Let’s look at the three of them one by one.

#3 Tim Southee is now New Zealand’s third-highest ODI wicket-taker.

Tim Southee has been a great servant to New Zealand over the years. He is a bowler who has a special talent for taking wickets at regular intervals.

Southee became the third-highest wicket-taker for the Blackcaps in an ODI in the third match against India, a significant personal milestone.

The right arm increased his ODI wicket total to 204 in 149 innings on Wednesday by taking two wickets. He overwhelmed resigned all-rounder Chris Harris, who took 203 wickets in his ODI profession.

With 297 wickets in 291 ODIs, Kiwi legend Daniel Vettori leads the list, followed by Kyle Mills with 240 scalps in 170 ODIs.

#2 Shubman Gill is presently the Indian with the most runs in the initial 15 ODI innings

Notwithstanding disappointing and making only 13 runs off 22 balls in Christchurch, Shubman Gill carved a striking batting record to his name.

The Punjabi-born cricketer has the most runs after the first 15 one-day international innings among Indian batters due to an impeccable start to his ODI career.

Gill has scored 687 runs in 15 ODI matches at an average of 57.25 and a strike rate of just under 100. This is the most by an Indian batsman in their first 15 ODI innings.
It’s interesting to note that Gill’s teammate Shreyas Iyer previously held the record for the time period, scoring 686 runs.

#1 Team India has now been bowled out the most times in one-day internationals.

In the third one-day international, India’s batsmen didn’t have a great day against New Zealand, and they were bowled out for 219 in 47.3 overs.

Unfortunately for them, the Men in Blue now have an undesirable record to their name as a result. India has now been bowled out in ODI cricket 285 times, the most by any nation, since being bowled out on Wednesday. In total, India has taken part in 1014 one-day internationals.

India topped Sri Lanka, who have been bowled out 284 times in 878 ODIs, on the list.
