  • Print

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and sent New Zealand in to bat Friday in the fifth and final one-day cricket international at Wellington Regional Stadium.

Dhoni called correctly for the fifth time in the series and elected to give his bowlers first use of a pitch which looked hard and fast.

New Zealand, which leads the series 3-0 with one match tied, made two changes to its lineup for the match, naming fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan in place of Tim Southee and Matt Henry to make his debut in place of another quick, Hamish Bennett.

India made one change, recalling opener Shikhar Dhawan in place of Stuart Binny, who made his ODI debut in the fourth match at Hamilton which New Zealand won by seven wickets.
