New Zealand continues to search for a way to defeat India who has been cruising in the ongoing 5-match ODI series at home. The visiting side dominated the first three ODIs thoroughly to seal the series with two more games to be played. Skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for the remainder of the tour with Rohit Sharma taking up the responsibilities. The Kiwis would be hoping to capitalize on the absence of the World No.1 batsman who is expected to be replaced by a young Shubman Gill.
