Wet outfield due to rains on two successive days before the Test meant that the first session of Day 1 of the second match between India and New Zealand was washed away on Friday. The teams took an early Lunch.

The toss will now take place at 11:30am IST with the game scheduled to commence from 12 noon IST.

While the second session will run for an extended period, from 12 noon to 2:30pm IST, the final session will be from 3pm IST to 5:30pm IST, light permitting.

Both teams were dealt with injury blows ahead of the start of play with Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma and Kane Williamson ruled out.
