    India in New Zealand: Players to watch out for

    • Brendon McCullum is an impact player for New Zealand, especially in the shorter forma, and the team would like up to him to provide the spark. (Getty Images)

    • Ravindra Jadeja has been the go-to man for MS Dhoni, more so with the ball than the bat. He would want to make some contribution with the willow as well in New Zealand. (Getty Images)

    • Corey Anderson will pose a big threat for India after his fastest ever ODI hundred off a mere 36 balls against West Indies recently. (Getty Images)

    • Comeback man Jesse Ryder left his troubled past behind when he slammed a 51-ball 104 in the third one-dayer against West Indies in Queenstown and will look to hit a consistent note against the Indians. (Getty Images)

    • With Test centuries under their belt on the tour of South Africa, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli would like to convert those contributions into winning knocks in New Zealand. (Getty Images)

    • Ajinkya Rahane - with Test knocks of 47, 15, 51, 96 in South Africa - has definitely taken a step forward to stamp his authority on India's middle order. (Getty Images)

    • India have reasons to worry with Ross Taylor in top form. The right-hander slammed one double hundred and two centuries in three Tests against West Indies recently. (Getty Images)

    • Trent Boult has been a real find for New Zealand and his 20 scalps in his last three Test outings speak volumes about the left-arm seamer's skills. (Getty Images)

    • After the retirement of senior players, Virat Kohli has become the crux of Indian batting, be it any format, and he will play a major role in the ODI series as well. (Getty Images)

    • Rohit Sharma is yet to prove himself on foreign soil, especially after a flop show in South Africa both in Tests and ODIs. That makes this tour a crucial one for the right-hander. (Getty Images)

    • Kane Williamson at number three in the batting order has a big role to play in New Zealand's campaign against India. (Getty Images)
