Indian middle-order batsman Suresh Raina has been ruled out of the first ODI of the five-match series against New Zealand due to viral fever.
While confirming the news, the BCCI further said that there would be no replacement for Raina in the team.
"The BCCI medical team has confirmed that Suresh Raina, who is recovering from a bout of viral fever, is ruled out of the first ODI of the Paytm ODI Trophy against New Zealand," the media release read.
India, who have recently completed a three-match series whitewash against New Zealand, will play the ODI series against the Kane Williamson-led side from October 16 in Dharamsala.
