Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been declared fit and will play the fifth and final ODI against New Zealand, India's assistant coach Sanjay Bangar confirmed on Saturday.

MS Dhoni was out of the last two ODI games because of a hamstring injury.

The 37-year-old won the man of the series award in the recently concluded three-match ODI series against Australia after scoring three half-centuries.

He continued in the same form in the ongoing series against New Zealand, scoring an unbeaten 33-ball 48 to take India to 324-4 in the second ODI.

Dhoni's experience in the middle order was missed when India suffered a humiliating loss in the fourth ODI against New Zealand. India are currently 3-1 up in the five-match ODI series and will play the final match at Westpac Stadium. Rohit Sharma has been made the stand-in captain in absence of Virat Kohli.
