06:50 IST: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the second ODI between India and New Zealand in Mount Maunganui.
Hardik Pandya has left to join the squad in New Zealand after the Committee of Administrators (CoA) revoked the interim suspension on him and KL Rahul but most likely, he will be available only third ODI onwards. The team management played pace all-rounder Vijay Shankar at McClean Park but depending on the conditions, it can bring back Ravindra Jadeja. Ambati Rayudu, who scored an unbeaten 13 off 23 on Wednesday, is expected to get another opportunity following a not-so-productive run in the ODIs against Australia. For India, the biggest plus to come out of the first ODI was Shikhar Dhawan regaining some form with the bat following a lean run in Australia.
The southpaw scored an unbeaten 75 in the team's comprehensive win and in the circumstances, it was a crucial knock. More changes can be expected in the eleven after Kohli takes a break following the third ODI on January 28, creating an opening for the likes of Shubman Gill to make their India debut. New Zealand won the previous home series against India 4-0 but could be heading towards a reverse if they don't up their game. It seemed captain Kane Williamson was batting on another surface as the batsmen struggled at the other end.
