Fifth ODI: India win toss, elect to bat first against Kiwis; Dhoni returns to squad

Wellington, India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat first in the fifth cricket one-dayer against New Zealand at the Wellington Regional Stadium here on Sunday. Team India's confidence was startled by some incisive swing bowling in challenging conditions in Hamilton but the jolted visitors will gain confidence from Mahendra Singh Dhoni's return as they aim to finish the series against Kiwis with a victory. After losing first three ODIs of the series, New Zealand roared back with a strong eight wicket win at Hamilton. With series already done and dusted the home side would want to end the series on a high with another win.
