Ind Vs Nz Mumbai Test
India vs New Zealand: Premature rains in Mumbai could disrupt the first day of the second cricket Test between India and New Zealand. Wankhede Stadium pitch due to rain is expected to be favorable for bowlers. Both teams also had to cancel their training sessions due to rain all day on Wednesday. It also seems to be raining on Thursday. The outfield was damp. In the Ilam situation, the Indian team will go to the Bandra Kurla Campus ground where there is an indoor practice facility instead of the Wankhede Stadium. There is no lawn on the Wankhede Stadium pitch. It helps slow bowlers.
However, the longing pitch in the Test starting on Friday is expected to help fast bowlers and spinners. Due to the incessant rain, the pitch was covered. Due to this there is a lot of moisture under the surface. Excess moisture will definitely help fast bowlers more than Kanpur. But, it will also give a lot of turn to wicket spinners like this. It is expected to rain on Friday. Both teams, however, pray that the weather will not be disturbed from day two to day five.
At the same time, the Meteorological Department says that the rainfall is likely to decrease after December 2. In addition, the atmosphere is likely to open. The first match of the two-Test series ended in a draw. Team India were one wicket away from victory in the Kanpur Test. New Zealand drew the match.
Team India Playing XI is about to change.
All eyes were on the Indian team for the match. Mayank Agarwal’s departure is almost certain as captain Virat Kohli returns to the playing XI. Ajinkya Rahane, who has been plagued by poor form, has been backed by support staff, including head coach Rahul Dravid and bowling coach Paras Mahambre. Considering the favorable conditions for fast bowling, Ishant Sharma could be replaced by Mohammad Siraj. Apart from this, both of them are likely to form a fast bowling trio with Umesh Yadav. Akshar Patel will have to step down in such a situation.
