Preview: Dhoni returns for 5th ODI vs New Zealand

Feb 02, 2019 19:48 IST

India will aim to finish the 5-match ODI series against New Zealand on a high note on Sunday, after an embarrassing collapse in the 4th ODI; while New Zealand having already lost the series 3-1, will try to salvage their pride. Dhoni has been out with a hamstring injury for last 2 matches and is all set to join Rohit Sharma-led team India for the 5th ODI. The focus, once again, will be on the middle-order. In Kohli’s absence, Shubman Gill is likely to come out to bat at No. 3, even though he failed to get the meter running on his debut. A 4-1 margin will look much better than 3-2, but it will be easier said than done at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.
