Continuing on their winning momentum, from the series win against Sri Lanka, India went on to clinch the ODI series win against New Zealand as well. The bilateral assignment between India and New Zealand began with the ODI series, with the host winning the series after victories in the first two games itself.
The focus will shift to the shortest format of the game but India will miss some major players for the T20I series. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are part of the ODI team but will continue to be absent from the T20I side. KL Rahul and Axar Patel both have not been selected for either of the two squads, due to personal commitments.
Wicketkeeper-batter KS Bharat was included in the ODI team, while Prithvi Shaw returned to the T20I squad for the first time since July 2021.
