Rohit Sharma has consistently performed well at the top order and has regained some of his form in the recently concluded IPL.. He is also one of the most reliable openers in ODIs for Indian cricket and after recuperating from his injury certainly, fits the bill.
Meanwhile, in the first warm up match against New Zealand, India won by 45 runs, courtesy of the D/L method. Mohammad Shami was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/47. While skipper Virat Kohli scored a gritty knock of 50 to guide India to a victory.
