Dhawan's injury opens doors for Rahul

Shikhar Dhawan, who hit on his thumb during the clash against Australia has been ruled out for three weeks.

KL Rahul will move up the order to open the innings with Rohit Sharma. The no.4 spot could be taken by Dinesh Karthik or Vijay Shankar. Rishabh Pant has been called in as the replacement cover of Dhawan. India could also bring in Mohammad Shami in place of Kuldeep Yadav. Other than this, Virat Kohli's team is likely to stick to the same combination.

Nicholls and Southee fit for selection

New Zealand has not changed their XI since the start of the tournament as the combination has worked pretty well for them so far.

Tim Southee, who facing an injury, is reportedly fit and could find a spot in the XI.
