South Africa can reach 121 points if they complete a 3-0 series win over Bangladesh but India will overtake them if they win the opening match against New Zealand to be played the same day.

Rahane stepped up in the absence of Dhawan as the Mumbai batsman scored four consecutive half centuries.

India's record in bilateral ODI series at home has been phenomenal, having lost just two out of 16 played since their defeat to Australia in 2009-10.

"We played them last time and we know what they'll bring to the table and we know what they're capable of as a bowling unit". Munro and Guptill at the top are both exciting stroke makers and look to play their natural game which is I think is important.

"Rahane has always grabbed his opportunity as the third opener". As I mentioned there was K L (Rahul) as well competing for the spot.

"It's been a combination of both, giving guys the chances and understanding the workloads of players who have played for a while. This should not be an area where players are changed according to form, you need to look at all aspects in terms of how many games you are playing, how much rest you are getting", Kohli said.

When Ross Taylor and Virat Kohli played together for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2008, the Indian batsman had not become a household name - although Kohli had captained U-19 to glory a few months ago. You need to find your game in ODI cricket. Contrary to a lot of things being said left right and center, we understand how the dynamics of this team work best, that is something very hard to explain otherwise. We are really happy with what we are doing as a team at the moment.

Kane Williamson is hoping Latham and Co live up to the challenge in the ODI series where negotiating Indian wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in the middle overs will be the key.

"Yes, we played a couple of games in the World Cup, against other opposition, but the guys have played IPL games here, it is a nice stadium and so it is nice to get the series underway here at the Wankhede", said the 27-year-old batsman.

"R. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have played limited overs cricket for last 6-7 years regularly, but these youngsters have come up well".

Kohli refused to be drawn into a debate regarding rankings, saying it's not something that the players worry about.
