The last ODI series played between India and New Zealand was in 2016 where India won the 5-match series 3-2. The team was led by MS Dhoni but now, Virat Kohli will lead the side who will look to maintain a very good record at home. India has won the most of the limited overs matches in recent years and it will be difficult for BlackCaps to defeat Men in Blue.
