IND vs NZ Prediction: India are set to clash against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for the second and final test match. The first test at Kanpur was a thrilling see-saw battle with the balance shifting after every session. In the end, Rachin Ravindra produced a defensive masterclass amid fading lights to salvage a draw for the visitors.
India sorely missed skipper Virat Kohli and his on-field antics as they failed to clean up the tail in time. He is back in the side for the second encounter and it will be interesting to see who makes way. Shreyas Iyer had a dream debut and seems undroppable after piling 170 runs in the first game. Pressure further mounts on Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane as their string of low scores continued.
The Kiwis exceeded expectations in the first game and negotiated the Indian spin attack really well. They should field the same side though Ajaz Patel might way for Mitchell Santner. Neil Wagner might also get a look in.
