New Zealand are determined to make amends for their miserable showing so far in India during the rest of the one-day international series, according to fast bowler Matt Henry. 

After losing all three Test matches, the Black Caps were well beaten in the opening ODI last weekend and will look to stop the rot in the second match in Delhi on Thursday.

Henry was rested for the clash in Dharamsala but is set to return in Delhi. He told stuff.co.nz: "After the Test series, we really wanted to make a statement. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be.

"The guys are still up for it and working hard, and keen to move on to the next one. Everyone's determined to make amends and there are areas we can make adjustments in. We'll be good and ready to go."

The star of the show in Dharamsala was another young bowler, 23-year-old Hardik Pandya.

On his ODI debut, the right-armer, who has played in 16 Twenty20 internationals for India, took three for 31 from his seven overs and was named man of the match.

Unsurprisingly, he is set to be given another chance in Delhi, and head coach Anil Kumble is excited by Pandya's potential.

Kumble told a press conference broadcast on bcci.tv: "He's someone who obviously gives us the right balance.

"It was nice that he really bowled well in his first game with the new ball. That was certainly a strategy that [captain] MS Dhoni wanted Hardik to try.

"It's really heartening that he came out with the man of the match. That I'm sure should give him a lot of confidence.

"All-rounders who can come in and bowl quick and bat are certainly an asset and he's someone who we'll closely monitor and see how he progresses.

"He has the potential and he's showed his potential in the limited opportunities that he has got. We are hoping that he will continue with that in this series."

India will again be without batsman Suresh Raina, who missed the first ODI with a virus and has not recovered sufficiently to rejoin the team.

Watch the second ODI between India and New Zealand live on Sky Sports 2 on Thursday from 8.50am.
