07:00 hrs IST: Yesterday, India U-19 defeated Pakistan to reach the U-19 World Cup final. It was an easy 10-wicket win. Click here for the report.
06:41 hrs IST: Good morning everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the 1st ODI between New Zealand and India, at Seddon Park. Can the visitors carry on with their consistent form or can the Black Caps bounce back?
Injuries to Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan could pave the way for youngsters like Prithvi Shaw, who will be aiming to make an impressing in from of Ravi Shastri and his backroom staff. Also, this will be India's third ODI assignment since the 2019 World Cup. The Men in Blue have previously beaten West Indies and Australia. Meanwhile, New Zealand will play their first ODI since the World Cup final defeat at Lord's.
The last time, both these sides met in ODI cricket, New Zealand knocked out India from the 2019 World Cup in a dramatic semifinal clash. Kohli's team exacted revenge with a 5-0 T20 clean sweep this year.
Other than Sharma, Dhawan, India will also be without Hardik Pandya, Bhuveshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahal. New Zealand will be without Kane Williamson, who joins Trent Boult on the injury roster.
Mayank Agarwal has been named as Sharma's replacement. Also, Kohli revealed that Shaw could make his ODI Debut. He also stated that KL Rahul will keep the wickets and will bat at number five.
In the bowling department, India could play with three pacers, with Kuldeep Yadav expected to return as a spinner.
New Zealand will have Tom Latham as captain. The Black Caps will look at Ross Taylor for inspiration in the absence of Williamson.
All-rounder Jimmy Neeshan has been recalled along with Colin de Grandhomme. Ish Sodhi is only there for the first ODI and the hosts could opt for a two-spinner attack given the slower surface at Seddon Park. Keeper-batsman Tom Blundell and lanky pacer Kyle Jamieson are the only ones who don't have an ODI cap to their name.
India: Virat Kohli (capt), Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (wk), Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini.
New Zealand: Tom Latham (capt and wk), Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Jimmy Neesham, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tom Blundell, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Hamish Bennett, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, Mark Chapman.
