Nehra: experienced performer
Left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra has replaced Praveen Kumar in India's squad for the first one-day international against New Zealand on November 28.
Kumar is ruled out of the Guwahati showdown by fever, prompting the Board of Control for Cricket in India to send for Nehra, a veteran of 108 one-day internationals.
India have named an under-strength squad for the first two games of the five-match series with the Black Caps.
Gautam Gambhir will lead the side in the absence of regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and four other frontline players.
