New Zealand are a young side brimming with confidence after their successful series against West Indies. Apart from senior pros Brendon McCullum and Ross Taylor, we look at some of the young Kiwi players who could make a difference in the home series against India.
Kane Williamson is widely regarded as the future of New Zealand cricket. A No.3 in all formats of the game, he is a future captain in the making.
Corey Anderson rose to prominence after smashing the fastest hundred in ODI history. The all-rounder is a menace with both ball and bat and is looking to make a mark against India.
India's weakness against quality seam bowling will be tested against left-armer Trent Boult, who is coming off the back of an excellent series against the Windies.
Boult's partner-in-crime Tim Southee is New Zealand's most experienced pacer at just 24 years of age. He will be a thorn in the Indian batsman's flesh.
Mitchell McClenaghan has been a revelation in ODIs taking 43 wickets in just 18 games. The left-arm medium-fast pacer is an excellent limited over bowler and will hope to reach greater heights against India.
