IND vs NZ, First ODI, India tour of New Zealand, 2018-19
McLean Park, Napier
23rd January 2019, 7:30 AM IST

Venue details:

Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor

Team News:
BCCI’s ineptitude in the talk show controversy means Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul will not be featuring in this series. Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill replace them.
India made plenty of changes in the third ODI against Australia. Chahal and Kedar Jadhav proved their worth in the side. Vijay Shankar and Ravindra Jadeja were ineffective.

The top three – Rohit-Dhawan-Virat – remain untouched. Kedar Jadhav’s bowling puts him ahead of Ambati Rayudu. Dhoni may bat at four, followed by Jadhav and Dinesh Karthik.
India will be tempted to play both Kuldeep and Chahal but in order to do that, they will need to include the all-rounder Vijay Shankar. Otherwise, they may opt for Jadeja and Khaleel Ahmed in place of Kuldeep and Shankar.
Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will handle the opening and closing of the bowling innings.

New Zealand:
Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner return to the squad for the first three ODIs. They are taking the places of Tim Seifert, Jimmy Neesham and Todd Astle.
The NZ batting lineup is easy to predict. Munro-Guptill followed by Williamson and Taylor should make a compelling top four. Henry Nicholls and wicketkeeper Tom Latham complete top six.
Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santer will take the next slots if NZ plays with two spinners. They may replace Sodhi with Colin de Grandhomme for a seam option.
The home team has been rotating its pace bowlers. Three from the four of Southee, Boult, Ferguson and Henry will feature. Matt Henry may sit out for the first ODI.

Probable Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav/Ravindra Jadeja, Vijay Shankar/Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami
