IND vs NZ, 1st ODI Live Updates: India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat against New Zealand in the first ODI at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. India make three changes as Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur replace KL Rahul, Axar Patel and Shreyas Iyer. The Rohit Sharma-led side will be high on confidence after defeating Sri Lanka comprehensively in the recently concluded series. Virat Kohli was the wrecker-in-chief for India with two brilliant centuries. On the other hand, the Kiwis will have a tough time with Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Kane Williamson and Trent Boult all unavailable for the first match of the series. The visitors, however, are oozing with confidence, after toppling Pakistan last week.(LIVE SCORECARD)
