ya gambhir is playing well, scoring back to back hundreds, that too in 87 and 88 balls, really good work. he is in sublime form. superb partnership from virat and gambhir. virat kholi once again showed his consistency. and gambhir lead the team very well in the absence of senior players.

Though NewZealand is going through a touch patch, we can not say it is easier for India to play. Bacause even India has rested its senior and key players like Sachin, Dhoni, Sehwag, Zahir (Though for first two match)etc. So even then its was very well effort by entire team. Even we can not forget performance by Indian bowlers wich restricted NewZealand. Overall I am very satisfied with team performance. Hope India winning series continues till next world cup and may we will agiain taste sweet victory in World Cup 2011

Yap, India thrash kiwis with an unbelievable margin but i can't say india is in good form at all because Kiwis are going through with a bad day as BANGLADESH the weakest team also defeat the kiwis before coming to india of clean sweep 4-0. Real test will be judge in the upcoming tour to SA on that time we will find is really our indian cricket is in terrific foam..but for the huge victory A BIG HURRAY FOR Indian Team!!!

It is a good symbol for the Indian cricket that despite the presence of senior players India has won the ODI series against the NZ team. There is no need to argue how weak the NZ team was but it won't able to decrease the credit of winning the series. A series win is always a series win. This will increase the confidence and the strength of reserve bench. India won on the roller coaster of Gambhir's another back to back unbeaten century. Bowlers did their job well restricting the NZ within 230

I guess India is getting stronger and stronger OR Kiwis form is going down day by day !!!! Whatever it is, India gives nice performance in 3rd odis.. Our batting and bowling both were good. Specially Gambhir and Virat are becoming more consistent.. Good For India. I hope Players will continue their performance in South Africa series too.. Conditions will be way difference from now.
