Indian cricket team s captain MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to field against New Zealand in the first ODI on Sunday. Hardik Pandya, the all-rounder who has been a regular member in the T20I side, was given his ODI debut by the hosts. Pandya, struck in the first over of his One-Day International (ODI) debut, when he had the New Zealand opener Martin Guptill caught at the second slip in the first match at Dharamsala. But the success came at some cost for the right-arm bowler, who was hit for three boundaries earlier in the over by the New Zealand opener Guptill, who has been in a desperate search for runs.

India became the first ever team to feature in 900 ODI games since the inception of the 50-over format. India played their first ever ODI game against England at Leeds in 1974, which was won by the hosts by 4 wickets.
