A fresh New Zealand side will take on a confident India side in the first One Day International (ODI) at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.

The match will start New Zealand's tour of India which comprises three ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals.

Having already played two practice matches against the Indian Board President's XI in Mumbai, 'The Black Caps' are already looking prepared for their first outing since the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.

Out of the 98 ODIs the two sides have played against each other, India has won 49 and lost 43. There has been one tie and five have yielded no result.

However, it will be the T20I head-to-head record that India would be desperate to change. The Kiwis have beaten the Men in Blue in all five T20Is so far.
