In the first ODI of the 5-match series, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first against India. On a high after a defining tour of Australia, the Virat Kohli-led Indian team faces a trickier challenge as it locks horns with Kane Williamson's New Zealand in a five-match ODI series starting today at McLean Park in  The Indian cricket team, which is now focused on ICC World Cup 2019 preparations, is still searching for the right middle-order combination despite their first-ever bilateral ODI series win on Australian soil.

Here are the playing 11 of both the teams:

India playing 11: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami
 
New Zealand playing 11: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w), Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's hat-trick of half-centuries has brought joy to the Indian dressing room but the smaller grounds in New Zealand against a better seam attack comprising the wily Trent Boult, the talented Lockie Ferguson and the relentless Tim Southee will be a different test altogether for the 'Men In Blue'.
 
New Zealand in their own backyard have always been a force to reckon with and the touring Indian teams over the years will testify that: they have won only 10 of the 35 ODIs played against New Zealand. India got a 0-4 drubbing during their last New Zealand series in 2014.
