Neesham brought in for injured Guptill in T20 series

MS Dhoni is set to return for India

With momentum on their side, New Zealand has a good opportunity to challenge India in the ODI series.

Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman was effusive in his praise for the Indian cricket team for winning the final ODI against New Zealand after a top order collapse. The visitors will now play three T20Is against the Kiwis, the first of which will be played tomorrow at Wellington. From that squad, only Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik are part of the current squad.

New Zealand's recent T20I form has been disappointing, having won just two of their last seven 20-over series but India are yet to win an away series in the shortest format of the game, coming up short in their 2009 visit. BCCI regularly shares a glimpse from the show after every match India wins.

New Zealand cricket team will be looking to turn things around after losing the ODI series 4-1. When he was left out of the T20I squads for the home series against Windies and the T20Is in Australia, it seemed unlikely that he'd make a return to the format so soon. Kedar Jadhav (up eight places to 35th) is another one to advance for India in the list led by their captain Virat Kohli.

With three T20I tons to his name, Munro is capable of pulling off the occasional blinders and it will be up to Bhuvneshwar Kumar to stop him with the new ball. It was during the 2016 World T20 match played at Nagpur.

Rishabh Pant, the 21-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman, made his debut a couple of years and hasn't gone out of the national selectors' radar by any stretch of the imagination. And the prospect of fours and sixes, because you know that the average first-innings total in New Zealand since January 2016 is 183, adds to the great day this is going to be.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, India also can't afford to drop pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar which leaves them with only one spot of a fast bowler.
