Ranchi - New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bat in the fourth one-day international against India in Ranchi on Wednesday.

The visitors, who are in a must-win situation, have made three changes from their loss in Mohali on Sunday that put them 1-2 behind in the five-match series.

Batsman Anton Devcich, wicketkeeper BJ Watling and leg-spinner Ish Sodhi return to the side in place of Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi and Matt Henry.

The hosts have made just one change to their starting lineup with Dhawal Kulkarni replacing fellow medium-pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

India's skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be looking to seal the series at his homeground Ranchi.


India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Dhawal Kulkarni, Umesh Yadav

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Anton Devcich, BJ Watling, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Ish Sodhi
