However, after that, we can expect conditions to be dry with the temperature reaching up to 31 degrees on most days. Hence, we can expect a result between the two teams.
The Wankhede wicket will assist more for the fast bowlers than what we witnessed at Green Park in Kanpur. The green surface will offer more for the bowlers. Hence, we can expect the pitch to bounce and turn throughout the match.
IND vs NZ LIVE: Preview
Team India had a great chance to take the opening lead in the Test series. However, they let it slip away from their hands. On the other hand, New Zealand fought a great fight in the fag end of the overs of the final day.
India took nine wickets of New Zealand and were just a wicket away from winning the Test. Nonetheless, Rachin Ravindra had other ideas as he defended the balls quite well. The southpaw stood tall against the spinners.
Indian spinners bowled really well on the wicket but failed to break through Ravindra’s defence. New Zealand somehow survived India’s dominance and settled for a draw.
Now, the action shifts to the second and final Test match. The game kicks off tomorrow at Wankhede. Indian captain Virat Kohli is back to lead the team from the vanguard.
On the other hand, New Zealand will come strong in the second Test. Both teams will play for a win in order to win the series. Earlier, India whitewashed the Kiwis by 3-0 in the T20I series.
