Skipper Rohit Sharma will play his his 200th ODI against a below-par New Zealand in the fourth ODI here Thursday. A 4-0 lead will be India's biggest series win (across formats) in their 52 years of touring New Zealand having first visited the country back in 1967. For India, the two remaining matches give the side an ideal platform to once again test the bench strength. The status of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's hamstring injury is not known but according to team sources, there is nothing much to worry about. Indian fans could get a glimpse of the immensely talented Shubman Gill.
Rohit is regarded as one of the best limited overs cricketers in the world. He is a right-handed batsman and was an occasional right-arm off break bowler. He plays for Mumbai in domestic cricket and captains Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. Having started his international career at the age of 20, Sharma quickly came to be pegged by many analysts as a permanent fixture in the Indian cricket team in the next decade.In 199 ODI matches, he scored 7779 runs.
