The Blackcaps are on Indian shores and after a dispiriting start, they got their act together in the second warm-up match against Board President's XI.

This win would instil a lot of purpose and belief into the squad as they await the Indian team, one which is brimming with a lot of confidence and riding on a wave of momentum.

However, much like the New Zealand teams of the past, this particular bunch cannot be underestimated at any cost, since they are capable of upsetting the apple cart on any given day.

Here, in this article, we take a look at five Kiwi players who can pose a threat to the Indian team in the upcoming ODI series.

#5 Matt Henry

Matt Henry
Can ruffle quite a few Indian feathers

The robust right arm quick did create some issues for the Indian batting lineup on his last tour to the country. He is now equipped with some IPL experience and can be a significant hurdle to the flamboyant Indian batting lineup.

Henry has the pace to rattle the batting and he generally uses the pitch to his advantage, something that has proven to be problematic for India over the past 15 months.

Also, he has the ability to come back during the end overs and deliver yorkers to perfection. A definite threat!
