Kohli hails India's new spin duo ahead of NZ ODI series”

Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat first in the opening one-day global against New Zealand at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The duo troubled Aussies continuously and scalped wickets at a regular interval; they were the top two clinchers for India sharing 13 wickets between each other.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wicket-keeper), Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, George Worker. The Black Caps earned a 33 runs victory which will give them the much-needed momentum before colliding with the hosts in their own backyard at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The three-match T20I series will begin November 1 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi - a game which senior Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra has said will be his last in global cricket.

This will be India's first series after ICC revamped the rules.

When and where is the India vs New Zealand 1st ODI match? The match is on October 21, 2017.

The 1st ODI between India and New Zealand will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. "These youngsters have stepped up and it creates a strong pool for us before the World Cup".

India (Playing XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (w), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal. "People talk a lot about adjusting to the conditions in India, and that is really important not just when you come to India but the specific grounds you play at, they are always a little bit different", New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said in Mumbai.
