India and New Zealand are currently involved in a three-match ODI series. While the first game was won by the Kiwis, the second fixture concluded without a result. Hence, all the attention will be on the third match, which will happen at Christchurch. Here, we look at the pitch report of Hagley Oval and the weather conditions in Christchurch for IND vs NZ 2022.
India’s strategies have been strange in this series. Despite doing well in the first encounter, to add more balance to the XI, Sanju Samson was dropped for the second game. Considered he is well suited as a batter to these conditions, it needs to be seen if the management would bring him back.
The return to form for Kane Williamson has been the highlight of the series till now, along with Tom Latham’s special knock. The Kiwis would hope for the openers, especially, Finn Allen to contribute more in the final game.

The Hagley Oval has, till now, witnessed 15 ODI encounters. In these games, seven matches were won by the chasing side. Nevertheless, due to the threat of rainfall, the captain winning the toss could opt to field first.
With average runs per over more than 5, the Hagley Oval can prove to be a good batting park. Trent Boult once picked up seven wickets in an innings on this track. That happens to be the most memorable individual performance at this venue.

Like Hamilton and Napier, the temperature is likely to be around 18 degrees celsius in Christchurch, too. However, rain is a problem again.
Both the T20I and the ODI series have been affected by rainfall and the final match is also likely to go in the same route. With a precipitation chance of 70%, rain is expected on Wednesday at the venue.
