Pre-match chat: New Zealand's World Cup bowling attack to miss Indian one-day series
The pace bowling attack that carried New Zealand to the Cricket World Cup final at Lord's will not be seen during the Indian one-day series.
Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry have all missed selection against the world's top-ranked side, sidelined by various injuries.
Boult (broken finger), Ferguson (calf strain) and Henry (broken thumb) were all key cogs in the Blackcaps' surprising run that fell one-run short of claiming a first World Cup win.
They have been replaced for the Indian series by Kyle Jamieson, Scott Kuggeleijn and Hamish Bennett, with Tim Southee expected to lead the attack.
Coach Gary Stead also confirmed Cantabrian Henry Nicholls would continue to open the batting, after replacing Colin Munro in the role midway through the tournament last July, with Tom Latham the first-choice wicket-keeper.
"Henry will remain at the top of the order, after impressing in the opportunities he’s had," Stead noted.
"He's been in good form opening for Canterbury in the latest rounds of the Ford Trophy, with a hundred and a half-century to his name.
"It's great to have Tom fit, so we can call on his experience behind the stumps and in the middle order.”
James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme have kept their spots in the all-rounder spots, while Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner will provide spin options. Tom Blundell has been selected as both batting and wicketkeeping cover.
The first of three matches takes place in Hamilton on Wednesday, February 5.
