    Kiwi leg-spin woes continue in India

    New Zealand A have fallen to a comprehensive six-wicket defeat in the the third ODI against India A in Visakhapatnam.

    New Zealand A's woes with legspin have continued as they stumbled to a six-wicket defeat against India A in the third ODI in Visakhapatnam.

    Legspinner Karn Sharma, who had taken 16 wickets in the two earlier four-dayers, took 5-22 as the Kiwis were bowled out for 143 in 37.1 overs.

    George Worker and Colin Munro had started steadily after the Kiwis won the toss, but after reaching 39 without loss midway through the eighth over they unravelled quickly.

    Worker was dismissed for 22 and Munro for 29, Glenn Phillips following soon after for nine and Tom Bruce for 14.

    At 97-4, Henry Nicholls and Colin de Grandhomme managed a brief recovery to put on 37 for the fifth wicket, but any resistance folded when Nicholls was dismissed for 35 and New Zealand A lost their last six wickets for nine runs.

    India A didn't start their run chase convincingly, losing their first three batsmen cheaply to sit on 23-3 two balls into the eighth over.

    However, Shreyas Iyer steadied the ship with 37 off 36 balls then Vijay Shankar and Deepak Hooda put on an unbeaten 57-run partnership to see India home.

    India take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series in Visakhapatnam after the first game was washed out and the second ended in a dramatic tie.

    The fourth match begins mid-afternoon on Friday (NZT), with the final game two days later.
