Auckland: Team India got defeated in the first ODI match played in Napier, the second match was canceled due to rain in Hamilton, and now the same fear is haunting Christchurch's 3rd ODI. India and New Zealand will face each other in the third and final ODI on 30 November. The completion of this match is more important for Team India than for the Kiwi team. If the match happens, then Team India will have a chance to level the series. But, if the match gets washed out due to rain, then the team along with captain Shikhar Dhawan will have to return home empty-handed.
Let us tell you that till now there have been only two captains of Team India who have won the ODI series in New Zealand. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli have done this feat. Shikhar Dhawan could have been the third captain in this sequence. But, the bad weather over there dashed his hopes. Trailing 0-1 in Hamilton ODI, the Indian team's dreams of winning the first series were shattered.
In fact, the overall weather in Christchurch on November 30 is not looking good. The day will start with good weather, but as the day progresses, the chances of cloud cover and rain will increase every second. According to the Meteorological Department, there is a 60 percent chance of rain in Christchurch on November 30. This rain is in the afternoon and is expected to intensify in the evening. That is, the situation will be such that the match will either be seen to be on-off or it will be completely washed away.
