Munro recalled into the side

New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has been ruled out of the fifth ODI due to a back injury.

According to the Cricbuzz report, Colin Munro has been recalled into the squad for the last game. Munro was dropped in the previous match due to his poor form through the series while Guptill himself has been short of runs lately. Captain Kane Williamson might not look into any further changes in the side after their resounding win in Hamilton.

Uncertainty rues over Dhoni's injury

MS Dhoni has been out of the XI in the last two games due to a hamstring injury and there is no update on his fitness yet.

If he is declared fit in time, Dinesh Karthik might have to sit out in order to accommodate the veteran wicketkeeper in the side. Shubnam Gill failed to impress on his ODI debut, but the 19-year-old is likely to get another opportunity to prove himself. Stand-in captain Rohit Sharma might also look to bring back Mohammad Shami in place of Khaleel Ahmed after resting the experienced speedster in the Hamilton ODI.

The Westpac pitch has a reputation of offering swing with the new ball, but batting is a lot easier towards the back end of the innings.

The spinners will definitely come into play and might slow the proceeding of the batting side. The weather is expected to bright and sunny and there won't be any rain affecting the match. Blackcaps will have their work cut out while challenging their Indian attack and it would be interesting to see how the series ends.
