The India vs New Zealand cue ball series is nearing completion with only one game left. India won T20I Serie who witnessed two of the three games hindered by rain. Subsequently, New Zealand triumphed in the first ODI, however, the rain came back as a killjoy in the second ODI and also washed away the match. Now the third and final ODI match is scheduled at Hagley Oval, in Christchurch. The stadium replaced Lancaster Park in Christchurch as the international venue in 2011, the latter having been heavily damaged by the February 2011 earthquake.
