After giving a mouthful of a chance to Kiwis to score and win, India is all set to claim their series win as they come for the 5th ODI and with the return of MS Dhoni in the squad, India is back in full form to face New Zealand.
Except for their previous outing, New Zealand has been disappointing in the series. And even if they manage to clinch a victory in this fixture, the series is still going to be lead by India. The pitch is favorable for batting conditions and looks like Indian batsmen would be making strong amends from their past mistakes.
Needless to say, India is yet again going to clinch a series win. Although performance has been quite disappointing from both ends and this can shower a point of concern to Virat Kohli following the World Cup campaign.
New Zealand: Colin Munro/Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (C), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Todd Astle, Matt Henry, Trent Boult/Tim Southee.
India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed.

With MS Dhoni making a return, his aura can definitely bring the spirit back and India can call for a victory.
