KL Rahul performed very well in the T20 series, and he was batting first, but he will come to bat at number four or five in the ODI series. Virat Kohli has made it clear.
The ODI series between India and New Zealand will begin with the first match on Wednesday, January 5, 2020, at Sedan Park in Hamilton. The match is to be played at 7:30 am Indian time.
Rohit Sharma is injured in the T20 series, so he will not be able to play in the ODI series. After the ODI series, Team India has to play a two-match Test series in New Zealand.
In the ODI series, New Zealand will be led by Tom Latham. They can include the following players by their playing XI.
