India beat New Zealand in thriller to clinch series

The partnership between Kohli and Rohit helped India to score 337 runs against New Zealand.

Team India skipper Virat Kohli became the fastest to reach 9000 ODI runs, taking just 194 innings, in the third and final ODI of the ongoing series against New Zealand in Kanpur on Sunday.

With an eye on the three-match Twenty20 series between the sides, starting in Delhi on Thursday morning (NZT), it's no wonder Black Caps captain Kane Williamson hailed Latham's form since dropping down the order.

Right through the chase, the visitors were in the contest but they could not clinch the match because none of the batsmen were able to convert their starts and conjure a big total which would have allowed New Zealand to reach the target.

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.

"It's been great. I probably surprised myself a little bit in terms of the role", Latham said of his move down the order. "But, unfortunately, today we couldn't get over the line". While the whole team enjoyed some off time from their grueling schedule, five Indian players including Hardik Pandya and skipper Virat Kohli skipped the optional practice session ahead of the series decider.

Kohli said, "It looks a good wicket".

Virat Kohli has been stitching up his own records and one such record came on Sunday when the Indian cricket captain became the fastest batsman to get to 9,000 ODI runs.

Sharma, who smashed 147 off 138 balls, and Kohli, who made 113, became the first pair in ODIs to record four double-century stands between them after putting together 230 runs for the second wicket.
