Preview

India will host New Zealand in the first ODI match at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday (January 18). The Indian team beat Sri Lanka in three-match ODI series by 3-0 after their shocking defeat against Bangladesh last month. They put in impressive all-round performance against Sri Lanka with Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj dominating the series. 

New Zealand lost the opening ODI against Pakistan but made a good comeback by winning the following two matches to seal the series. Captain Kane Williamson and head coach Gary Stead are missing the tour alongside star pacers Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Adam Milne, and Trent Boult.

The in-form wicketkeeper batter Tom Latham will be leading the team for the Kiwis, who scored 145* against India during India's tour of New Zealand last month. New Zealand rank first in the current ICC ODI Team's chart and have not lost any of last five ODI encounters against India.
