MS Dhoni is likely to miss fourth ODI as the team management wants him to completely recover from his hamstring injury ahead of a hectic season.

Dhoni, who was declared Man of the Series in India’s ODI assignment against Australia, didn’t play in the third match. He had scored 33-ball unbeaten 48 in the second ODI against New Zealand.

In his absence, Dinesh Karthik will continue as the wicket-keeper batsman for Men in Blue and Shubman Gill will make his debut. India are expected to make couple of changes in the fourth ODI match against the Kiwis.

Gill is expected to replace Virat Kohli in the playing XI. Team India’s regular skipper has been rested owing to workload. The visitors are leading 3-0 in the five-match series.
