The hosts will be looking to steal the ODI series after a loss in the T20I. Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson, who missed the last T20I is set to be back as captain for the ODI series. However, the squad of Blackcaps is looking pretty good with Conway and Allen set to open the innings. Tom Latham is also in the squad and can bat at the top with replacing Allen or Conway. Then skipper Kane Williamson, Glenn Philips, and Daryl Mitchell will bat in the middle while James Neesham and Santner will act as all-rounders.
In the pace department, the Kiwis have Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Adam Milne, and Matt Henry while Bracewell and Santner are the two spinners on the side. Trent Boult and Martin Guptil both Kiwi players are out of NZ’s central contract for different reasons and are not a part of the squad. Can they challenge the visitors with this power-paced squad?

After a victory in the T20 series, team India is all set to face the Kiwis in a three-match ODI series in preparation for the upcoming world cup in India. In absence of Rohit and Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan is set to lead the side as usual with Gill set to open with him. Surya, Shreyas, Pant, Samson, and Hooda are the choice of middle-order batters in the squad while Sundar and Thakur are the two all-rounders in the squad.
The pace department is consist of Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar, who make a comeback in the squad. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if coach Laxman gives a chance to Umran Malik. Yuzi Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are the two main spinners in the squad rather than Sundar. So, the squad is looking good overall to challenge the home side in the series.
