NZ vs IND: New Zealand are scheduled to host India for a 3-match ODI series after the T20I series finished with several rain interruptions. Both teams will look to build their ODI team ahead of the upcoming World Cup in 2023. 

With the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami missing from the squad, the bowling onus would be on Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik and Kuldeep Sen.
