Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India is all set to take on New Zealand in a three-match ODI series starting on November 25 in Auckland. It is worth noting that the southpaw will be leading the visiting side as regular skipper Rohit Sharma has been rested for the series. The BCCI on Thursday shared a video on social media of the unveiling of the ODI trophy for the series. On his way to the ceremony, Dhawan was seen having a good time with his New Zealand counterpart.
In the shared clip, the Dhawan-Williamson pair share a laugh and hug each other before marching towards the unveiling of the trophy.

Talking about the captaincy role at a press conference, Dhawan said, “I am really fortunate to have got the captaincy of the Indian team. It is great to get this challenging opportunity. We have also won a good series. Withdrawn. I don’t mind if something doesn’t happen the way we wanted.”
India play the 50-over format against the Black Caps after registering a 1-0 win in the rain-affected three-match T20I series. The first match of the series was abandoned due to rain in Wellington, before India won the second game at Mount Maunganui by 65 runs. The third match between the sides in Napier saw a draw result after the DLS method was invoked following rain interference, while India were 75/4 after 9 overs chasing 161.
