Preview

New Zealand have ended their run of five defeats in as many international matches after beating India in the series opening first ODI in Hamilton. Powered by maiden ODI century from Shreyas Iyer and an attacking 88 not out for KL Rahul, the tourists posted a huge 347/4. New Zealand then were guided to a four-wicket win with Ross Taylor hitting a century while opener Henry Nicholls and captain Tom Latham hitting half-centuries.

The series is on the line and India captain Virat Kohli might ring in changes to draw level. New Zealand might not disturb their winning combination, hoping to close out the series in Auckland.
