After winning the last test match against Sri Lanka with a come from back performance and thanks to a very good hundred by VVS Laxman, India will change gears when they take on New Zealand in the first match of the ODI tri-series also featuring Sri Lanka.
Both India and Sri Lanka go into the match without some key players. India who already missed Zaheer Khan and Harbhajhan in the tests will now have to do without Ishant Sharma who was ruled out of the match after an injury.

MS Dhoni, V Sehwag, R Ashwin, RA Jadeja, KD Karthikâ€ , V Kohli, P Kumar, A Mithun, A Nehra, PP Ojha, SK Raina, I Sharma, RG Sharma, SS Tiwary, Yuvraj Singh
