Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

A gutsy New Zealand defeated hosts India by 19 runs in Ranchi on Wednesday (26 Oct) and drew level yet again. Going in to Saturday’s decider in Visakhapatnam, the series is locked 2-2.

For his effort with bat and ball, Axar Patel finished as the highest impact player of the fourth ODI.

Axar claimed one partnership-breaking, top/middle-order wicket in a tight spell (1-38 in 10 overs) and returned to score a defiant 38 under immense pressure – a phase when India lost four wickets for just 39 runs in the space of 40 deliveries. He also featured in a 38-run partnership (off 37 balls) for the eighth wicket with Amit Mishra (14).

Tim Southee, the second-highest impact player of the match, was the highest impact bowler for his pressure-building, three top/middle-order wickets (3-40 in 9 overs). He was also New Zealand’s highest impact player.

Martin Guptill, who was adjudged Man of the match, was the highest impact batsman and the third-highest impact player of the evening. He top scored (72) and gave the visitors a flying start as he and Tom Latham (39) put on 96 runs for the first wicket.

Three players from India failed in the match, while New Zealand had just one such player.
