Virat Kohli is not playing in Kanpur. That is why Ajinkya Rahane will be the captain. There was a lot of burden on the captain in batting. The importance of Cheteshwar Pujara in the third place is also very high. In the opening, Mayank Agarwal and Shubhman Gill have high hopes. Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, is set to make his Test debut in Kanpur, which has long been considered the best player in the format. However, the experience in batting was lacking. Only Rahane, Pujara and Mayank Agarwal have played more than 10 Test matches. The rest of the weekend is new to Test cricket. But, there is a lot of talent in the players. On home soil they want to surpass the Kiwis bowlers and excel.
Indian bowling is strong ..
Even if you have no experience in batting. Two players like Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja seem to have mastered the bowling attack. Ishant Sharma, who also scored a century in Test matches, is also with the team. Umesh Yadav’s experience will also help the team. At the same time Akshar Patel has been a great strength to the excellent form team. Kanpur pitch is conducive to spin. India are expected to enter the ring with three spinners.
New Zealand is no less ..
New Zealand lost the Test series against India 0-3 in 2016. However, the team must learn a lesson from that defeat. Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham are the strength of this team. These three experienced batsmen can determine New Zealand’s victory. At the same time, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jameson can prove to be a big threat in bowling. In the spin department, Ejaz Patel and Mitchell Santner can enter the field. Also, Kiwi team off-spinner William Somerville could be tried. Overall, the Kiwi team is balanced. Looking to do wonders in Kanpur.
