After an overwhelming performance in the Test series, hosts India will look to give a mauling to the Kiwis in the ODIs. The five match ODI series starts with the first ODI at Dharamsala on October 16. The format change is significant for New Zealand as they would want to put their Test performance behind them as fast as they can.

The biggest change for India is at the helm as Mahendra Singh Dhoni comes back to lead the team. Test team regulars Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested from the ODI side, which means a chance for non-regulars like Jayant Yadav and Amit Mishra to impress.

But the usual suspects like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane give the Indian top order a stable look. Suresh Raina is also in the mix after earning a place back in the squad. Bowling looks a little weak, although Dhawal Kulkarni and Jasprit Bumrah will have a tale to tell.

For the Kiwis, it is a chance of redemption. After an impressive start to the Test series, their challenge fizzled out ending in a disappointing whitewash. The advantage they have is that the ODI specialists drafted in to the squad will bring new energy to the side. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor continue to be the pillars of their batting, while Martin Guptill will relish the change of format.

Trent Boult will continue to be their spearhead with the ball, while Mitchell Santner will look to ride on his Test series form. James Neesham and Corey Anderson will look to add muscle with the bat and enterprise with the ball.

Rohit Sharma may have struggled to impress in the Tests, but in ODIs he’s been one of the most impressive performers in recent years. Rohit is a good punt to be India’s best batsman. For the Kiwis, Guptill remains a hot punt to be their best batsman – he did pick up runs towards the end of the Test series.

It’s not easy to get past India at home, but New Zealand won’t be pushovers in ODIs. There are chances that the series would go close and don’t be surprised if the Kiwis end up winners and at these current odds, they are juicy value.
