Kanpur - New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl in the third and deciding one-day international against India in Kanpur on Sunday.

The visitors, who lost the previous ODI of the three-match series, have fielded an unchanged side as they search for their first series win on Indian soil.

"Great opportunity to win a series in India for the first time, but we're just looking to enjoy ourselves today," Williamson said at the toss at Kanpur's Green Park Stadium.

India skipper Virat Kohli went in with the same side that won the previous game by six wickets to level the series at 1-1.

"New Zealand is always a competitive side. They're not verbal, they don't annoy you but they're always at you and we appreciate at that," said Kohli. "They play like gentlemen on and off the field."

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wicketkeeper), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Trent Boult
