A three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is set to get underway next week – here are the squad list for IND vs NZ 2023, including team news and updates.
The two sides will meet for the second time in as many months, after a heavily rain affected ODI series in New Zealand in December ended in a 1-0 New Zealand victory. Both teams have played plenty of cricket in between the series’ with India having won bilateral series against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, New Zealand having played an ODI series against Pakistan.
