India and New Zealand are set to lock horns in the 2nd and final Test of the ongoing series. The match is set to begin on December 3 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The hosts could not pick up a victory against the visitors in the 1st Test even after reaching so close to victory. Virat Kohli will be back to the team and will lead the side. Shreyas Iyer is in good form for India while Shubman Gill is also looking good with the bat. As far as bowling goes, spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Axar Patel did a commendable job in the 1st Test and will try to replicate the same performance.
NZ have showcased an impressive resistance against the hosts. Even after batting for whole Day 5 in 1st Test, the visitors manage to keep wickets in the end and took the match to a draw. Tom Latham is in brilliant form while Will Young also looks impressive with the bat. The Kiwis have a chance to defeat the hosts in the 2nd Test and win their maiden Test series against Men in Blue on Indian soil.
