Following injuries to first-choice seamers Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson, New Zealand have been forced to name a new-look pace attack for the three-match ODI series at home against India. While Henry suffered a broken thumb, Boult and Ferguson have been sidelined with a broken hand and a calf strain respectively. However, New Zealand are hopeful of Boult recovering in time for the two Test matches.

Scott Kuggeleijn, Hamish Bennett and uncapped Kyle Jamieson have been picked in the absence of the trio with Tim Southee leading the attack. Kuggelejin has so far played only two ODIs for New Zealand whereas Bennett has played 16. Both these seamers played their most recent ODIs almost three years ago in 2017. Legspinner Ish Sodhi will play the first ODI at Seddon Park but will be released in time to play for New Zealand A in the four-day match against India A in Christchurch.
