New Zealand and India are playing the first One-Day International (ODI) at McLaren Park, Napier. For MS Dhoni and his men, it is a new start after a disappointing campaign in South Africa. New Zealand would be confident though, as they have a side of a few natural entertainers and genuine match-winners. India have won the toss and elected to bowl.

India have dropped Yuvraj Singh from their one-day side and that leaves the door open for Ajinkya Rahane to come into the team. Ambati Rayudu is waiting in the wings, but Rahane should beat him in the race. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma will be the main men at the top and they would eye a turn-around after the tough tour to South Africa.

On paper, India may be stronger, but don’t count New Zealand out as they can strike form as a unit.

Teams:

New Zealand: Jesse Ryder, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum (c), Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi (wk), Nathan McCullum, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Mitch McClenaghan.

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma.
