New Zealand and India begin their three-game series at Westpac Stadium tomorrow evening, following the White Ferns game against India women.

Not been part of the ODI series in Australia and New Zealand, Pant would be looking to make the most of this opportunity at the top of the order, something which even Dhawan mentioned about him during his interaction with the media. Agreed that Dhoni found his lost form last month and is certain to board the flight to England, he still should not be rested in the matches leading to the World Cup.

The differentiator, however, remain the two Indian wrist-spinners.

On the other hand, Kiwis have had a few injuries to deal with.
