Pitch Report: Danny Morrison and Murali Kartik: 278 – average first innings score, it suggests it’s a good surface. Either side (square) – 63 metres and downtown 70 metres. Not a cloud in the sky. The pitch – it’s a nice straw-coloured surface, light grass but pretty evenly rolled. Batting first or batting second is immaterial. The curator says it’s pretty cold in the evenings which is what we saw in the last two days. There’s not enough dew to suggest that batting second is an option. It’s up to the teams’ makeup what they want to do.
Rohit Sharma: We will bat first. Looks a good pitch, little dry. We want to make sure we want to bowl under lights and defend score. We did well against Sri Lanka, but this is a different challenge. Important for us to keep the momentum going. The spirit in the team is really good. Three changes. Hardik is back, Shardul is back. SKY and Ishan are playing as well.
Tom Latham: We would have bowled first. Looks a good surface. They tend to be pretty good in India. We are missing a couple of key guys from the Pakistan series, but it’s an opportunity for the other guys. We love coming to India and experiencing all that the country has to offer. Most of the squad has pretty much played a good number of games. Three seamers and two spinners today.
India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami.
New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham(w/c), Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner.
