India and New Zealand are going head to head in ODI and T20 series starting this Wednesday. The tour does not have any test matches. Both teams are in good form and have won their last series. NewZealand whitewashed Srilanka by 3-0 in the recent series when Srilanka came visiting. India trounced the Australians by 2-1 in their own backyard. The Men in blue created history as this was the first time in history that India won a bilateral ODI series in Australia.
Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill were late addition to the team. They were only made part of the team after the controversy erupted over the comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul on a chat show. Both are still awaiting their fate. Rishab Pant is not part of the ODI squad but is a part of the T20s that will be played after the ODI series.
The tour will start with the one-dayers. The first one will be played in Napier on Wednesday and will start at 7.30 am IST. The itinerary and the squad are following for the NewZealand tour. The series will be streamed live on Star Network in India.
