India has won the series but what they witnessed in the last match was nothing short of a nightmare. Rohit’s 200th ODI went like he would have never expected as New Zealand outplayed India and showed to the world that they still have something left in them to prove.

What to expect?

Fifth ODI will be played at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Sunday. After discovering India’s struggle with the swinging ball, the pitch is expected to be helpful for the fast bowlers. Clear sky with mild temperature is what the forecast says.

Team News:

New Zealand

New Zealand has performed exceptionally well in 4th ODI with bowlers doing their job brilliantly. Trent Boult took 5 wickets and won the man of the match. The Batsmen had a small task but did their job well by chasing the target in just 14.4 overs.

Ross Taylor is looking really good and a lot is expected from his in the 5th ODI as well. Martin Guptill was unsuccessful again in the last game, but we can’t underestimate a player of such talents. Also, Henry Nicholls scored an unbeaten 30 and will be a crucial player for New Zealand tomorrow.

Probable eleven

Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (c), Colin de Grandhomme, Trent Boult, Tom Latham (wk), Todd Astle, James Neesham, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Henry Nicholls


For India, it was their 7th lowest total and was a record they would want to forget coming into the game tomorrow. Rohit and Shikhar will look to bounce back and will be looking to end things on a good note for India. Ambati Raydu after facing criticism might be dropped. Also, Dhoni probably will play tomorrow and strengthen the lower order.

Probable eleven

Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ambati Rayudu/Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed
