India take on New Zealand in the first ODI in Napier on Wednesday. The Men in Blue lost their last ODI series in New Zealand 4-0 and therefore Virat Kohli’s team will be raring to set the record straight in this five-match ODI series. The visitors are high on confidence after winning the three-match series against Australia and they would look to confirm their team combination for the World Cup later this year.
