IND vs NZ: India look to start New Zealand tour on a high
Napier, Jan 22 (CRICKETNMORE): Riding high on confidence, the Indian team led by Virat Kohli will look to maintain their winning run when they take on hosts New Zealand in the first contest of the five-match ODI rubber at the McLean Park here on Wednesday.
The Men in Blue are brimming with high spirit after a convincing series win, both in Tests and ODI, against Australia in their own backyard.
However, the tourists have won only 10 out of 35 ODIs against the Kiwis in their home turf, which also includes a 0-4 thrashing in 2014.
The Indian team boasts of a strong batting lineup with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and an in-form Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
