In the month of November 2022 just after the ending of the T20 World Cup, the Indian squad will arrive in New Zealand in order to play 3 ODI matches. The cricket authorities of both nations have confirmed the Indian tour and announced the dates, and venues of the upcoming New Zealand vs India ODI series 2022. The tournament comprises 3 ODI matches which will begin on 25th November and conclude on 30th November 2022.

Last time, the team India went to New Zealand in 2019-20 where they played 3 ODI matches series but could not achieve a single victory in the series. New Zealand defeated the Indian team very badly and won the series by 3-0 where Ross Taylor (NZ) became the Man of the Series. For the Indian team, Shreyas Iyer performed well with the bat and contributed 217 runs whereas Yuzvendra Chahal took the most wickets with 6 wickets in the series. Virat Kohli was leading the team at that moment, and now the team will be in New Zealand again for 3 ODI series under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli, the run machine of Indian cricket, is going through a bad form for a long time, and let us hope he will come back in form soon. He has lost his position in the ODI ranking also and came at the number 5th position.
In terms of head-to-head in One Day Internationals, both the teams have faced each other in 110 ODI matches where India has won 55 matches and lost 49 ODIs, this shows both the nations have no big difference in terms of performance. Both have got almost equal results in the One Day Internationals since 1975 when both the cricket team faced each other in ODI for the first time. Overall, as of July 2022, New Zealand has appeared in 781 ODI matches where they won in 360 matches and lost 374 matches.

On the other hand, team India has contested 1005 ODI matches out of which they won 523 matches and lost 432 matches. This year team India has played 9 matches till July in which they won 5 and lost 4 matches. So, let's see what tactics will the Indian team apply in order to win the ODI series between New Zealand and India in 2022.
