The first game of the much awaited India vs New Zealand Test series is all set to get underway at Green Park Stadium in Kanpur on Thursday.
The spirits in the Indian camp will be high while heading into the two test series as the Men in Blue conquered the Blackcaps with a 3-0 victory in the three match T20I series recently.
Ajinkya Rahane will led India in the 1st Test while Virat Kohli will return to the squad in the 2nd match. Other than Kohli, the hosts will miss the services of Rohit Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah in the opening encounter, while KL Rahul has been ruled out of the entire series due to an injury.
New Zealand on the other hand have never won a Test series in India but will fancy their chances this time against a talented but depleted Indian side. Their talismanic captain Kane Williamson will be back to lead the squad after missing the T20I series.
