India will be playing five one-dayers and three T20 Internationals against the 'Black Caps'. <p></p> <p></p>Entering the Test series worried about how to decode Kohli, the Australians recently learnt it the hard way as <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/cheteshwar-pujara/">Cheteshwar Pujara</a> stole the thunder Down Under, helping his team to an epic triumph. Taylor doesn't want his team to follow a similar approach.

It's easy to get caught up in him. You've got two pretty good openers at the top, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rohit-sharma/">Rohit Sharma</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shikhar-dhawan/">Shikhar Dhawan</a>, before he gets in," Taylor was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz. <p></p> <p></p>Taylor had his first net session at the McLean Park after his finger injury during the home series against Sri Lanka. <p></p> <p></p>While Kohli averages a staggering 113 in ODIs in 2018, Taylor's average is 92 in the same period across 13 ODIs.

I've worked on my game and try and rotate the strike early and be as busy as I can. Different shots against spinners at different stages have maybe evolved my game in a positive way," Taylor said.
