Crucial Period for New Zealand

New Zealand would be hoping that they don’t get bundled out. The batters must focus on building a partnership as there’s a lot of time remaining in the match where a score around 200-220 could also be effective on this pitch were there’s a bit of movement for the pacers

India would be delighted with this start as they not only have taken wickets but dried the runs. Skipper Rohit Sharma may bring Mohammed Siraj back into the attack as a couple of more wickets would seal the match for Men in Blue. It would be interesting to see how the spinners fare on this track especially Kuldeep Yadav who is in the form of his life with his foxy variations.
