After dominating New Zealand in first three ODI's, India are all set to continue their winning streak in the fourth match at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Thursday.
The visitors might make some changes in their playing XI to give ample rest to the core team. There is still uncertainty on whether veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni will make an appearance as he suffered an injury before the 3rd ODI. If Dhoni is not declared fit, it is quite probable that young Shubman Gill might get a chance to debut.
While Mohammad Shami might also get the rest after heavy workload from past few months, left-armer Khaleel Ahmed may be given a chance to make a comeback on the squad.
The hosts, who have been performing consistently poor in last three matches, recalled their experienced all-rounder Jimmy Neesham in the squad.
Neesham's inclusion will bolster New Zealand lower-batting order, which was miserable in the last three matches against India's fierce bowling attack.

Kohli absence might make a difference in the match but India will still enter the match as favourites after taking the unassailable 3-0 lead. Kane Williamson and Co. will play for the pride now, while India have nothing to lose in the series now.
