New Zealand tour: Indian team reaches Auckland

The visitors sealed the two series by 2-1, while they settled with a 1-1 draw in the T20I series. "The Windies were brilliant at it and had that "scare factor", which is what India have now", Jones wrote in his column for Times of India.

The former Australia cricketer added: "This was the greatest tour that India has ever had to Australia". "You can't replace such great players, they only come once in 30 or 40 years". "Everyone did something on the tour to contribute". Kohli also surpassed Tendulkar to become the quickest to score 10,000 ODI runs for India.

MS Dhoni had a fine run in the recent three-match ODI series against Australia in which he scored 194 runs in three matches at the average of 194. The 37 year old struck three consecutive half centuries to guide India to a historic series victory over the hosts in the ODI series. The match-winning 87 in the series decider helped the senior campaigner silence his critics and prove he's well and truly back to peak form.

As far as squads are concerned, the Indian selectors had made a decision to rest their premium fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah for both the Australia and New Zealand tour.


"The main "problem" is Dhoni".

"I've played a few internationals now and understand my role in the team".

Strong crowds are expected throughout the tour as India make their first visit to New Zealand since 2014. "What would be the worst thing to ruin this would be to go out against the Black Caps and drop their guard".

Taylor, Martin Guptill, and captain Kane Williamson will be the key batsmen for New Zealand that takes on India in the five-match ODI series beginning on January 23.
