India’s Predicted Playing XI for the 5th ODI against New Zealand

India’s Predicted Playing XI for the 5th ODI against New Zealand

He's got that calm demeanour in the middle order.

Dhoni's return was confirmed by assistant coach Sanjay Bangar on Saturday. Dhoni's presence will be a factor in that middle order which still doesn't rock solid if skipper Virat Kohli isn't around.

The visitors have an unassailable 3-1 lead in the 5-match series, but after an off-day in the fourth ODI where the batsmen failed miserably and the team was bundled out for 92, the fifth ODI will show if the Indians have learnt from their mistakes.

He continued in the same vein in the ongoing series against New Zealand, scoring an unbeaten 33-ball 48 to take India to 324-4 in the second ODI.

The windy condition at Basin Reserve in Wellington could just be the shot that Trent Boult would need as he again marks his run-up.

But it remains to be seen who he replaces: will it be Shubman Gill who made his debut in Hamilton or Dinesh Karthik who has been keeping wickets in Dhoni's absence.

Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ambati Rayadu, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed, and Yuzvendra Chahal. Neesham also mentioned that the New Zealand bowlers would be looking to restrict MS Dhoni in the remainder of the tour.

With the three-match T20I series ahead and also the World Cup round the corner, India will have to address this weakness to ensure that their much-vaunted batting doesn't crumble on an odd day when the conditions aid swing bowling in England.

Remember the Champions Trophy final?

Hardik Pandya is one to watch out for.

The team management might also want to test Mohammed Siraj as Khaleel Ahmed wasn't very impressive in the last game.

New Zealand, however, is likely to miss out opener Martin Guptill who suffered a back injury during practice. In the bowling department, Boult has swung his way with a five-wicket haul while Grandhomme seemed to have regained confidence with his three-wicket haul in the last match. After winning back to back three games, India lost the track in the fourth ODI when the hosts went on to clinch the game by 8 wickets.

Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls (wk), Kane Williamson (C), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Todd Astle, Matt Henry, and Trent Boult.

On that note, here is the strongest playing eleven of India for the fifth ODI against New Zealand.

There were huge concerns in the Indian dressing room surrounding MS Dhoni's form at the start of the year after a bleak 2018 in which he could manage only 275 runs from 20 matches.
