India managed to emerge victorious in the T20 series. That being said, the 50 over format is a slightly different ball game and New Zealand will be hungry to exact revenge on this Indian side.
Suryakumar Yadav has been in fine form scoring a brilliant century in the second T20I which won him the ‘Player of the Series’ award. Indian fans would be hoping that he can continue in this vein of form in the One Day International series too.
There is a slight shuffle in the squad as Shikar Dhawan will be leading the team in the ODI series. It has been a long time since we saw the 36-year-old left-handed batsman in the Indian jersey. He must be gunning to prove himself again.
With so many youngsters in this squad we may be able to see some of the future talents in action, as this would be a great platform for them to build their international career upon.
