IND vs NZ Match Preview New Zealand Tour of India 2nd Test:

India and New Zealand will lock horns against each other in the second Test match at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai from the 3rd of December till the 7th of December. The 1st Test at Kanpur ended in a nail-biting draw. India was on the verge of winning the game but poor lights on the field allowed no further play. 

India won the toss at Kanpur and batted first. India went on to pile up 345 runs in the first innings. Debutant Shreyas Iyer stacked a terrific century, followed by half-centuries by Shubman Gill and Ravindra Jadeja. Tim Southee grabbed a perfect 5-wicket haul, while Jamieson and Ajaz Patel picked 3 wickets and 2 wickets respectively.

New Zealand got off to an excellent start as they put up a 151-run partnership for the opening wicket, Tom Latham stacked 95 runs while Will Young scored 89. However, there was very little support from the other batters, and as a result, New Zealand ended on 296 despite such a great start. Axar Patel picked 5 wickets while Ashwin hunted 3 scalps.

India declared at a score of 234 in the second innings. Shreyas Iyer was the leading run-scorer once again (65), followed by Wriddhiman Saha (61*). Southee and Jamieson hunted 3 wickets each. India bowled pretty well in the last innings but failed to wrap up things, and New Zealand escaped the defeat by 1 wicket. Axar Patel hunted 4 scalps while Ashwin picked 3 to his name. 

Debutant Shreyas Iyer was adjudged the player of the game for his outstanding contributions with the bat in both innings.

The series still stands at level and the winner of this game will win the series. Virat Kohli will also be returning to the Indian squad for this game.
