MOUNT MAUNGANUI, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl Tuesday in the third one-day international against India at Bay Oval.

Williamson missed the first two matches of the series with a shoulder injury. In his absence New Zealand won the first match by four wickets and the second by 22 runs to take an unassailable lead in the three-match series.

Williamson’s return displaced Tom Blundell from New Zealand’s top order, while Mitchell Santner has overcome a stomach virus to replace Mark Chapman.

India made only one change, selecting Manish Pandey in place of Kedar Jadhav.
