India vs New zealand 4th odi preview
New zealand still leading the sreies2-0 are still favourites for the series. India top order is still struggling, have to wake up as it is their last chance for them to square the series. India however cannot win the series should be looking to draw the series 2-2.
Looking into the second odi ,New zealand almost clinched a victory and took it for granted after the depature of Indian skipper Mahendra singh dhoni. But, the heroics of Ravindra jadja and R Ashwin at the depth helped India to finish with a tie. New zealand only fear since the start of the tour Virat kohli failed in 3rd ODI to a well disguised plan by kiwis especially Hemish Bennet. Coming back to Hamilton for the fourth ODI After playing second ODI there one should expect similar kind of surface. Pitch will be slow, it becomes slower and slower as the game progresses .Team winning the toss will be looking to bat first and set a formidable score. India should be hoping to bat first which they haven’t in the past three matches.

Players to watch out
VIrat kohli Undoubtedly one can say he is the superstar of Indian future. He failed in the previous ODI. He is definitely going to be disheartened with that. He will come back harder.
Corey Anderson he has become a star in the cricket world breaking Pakistani all-rounder shahid afridi’s record of fastest hundred. He grabbed five wicket haul, but conceded too many runs in the final over which costed them match.
Suresh raina he got a few starts in the tournament but unable to capitalise. Kiwis tested him with some serious short pitch stuff and they will be continuing as he is still uncomfortable with it.
Brendon mccullumn. NZ skipper has impressed every one with his aggression and made them look like an unit. What should be worrying him is his personal form with two back to back ducks
