India vs New Zealand 3rd Test which is being played in Nagpur, was on the verge of being washed out, but thanks to the next day’s bright sun everyone’s hope just sort of revived. After the toss the Kiwis have decided to bat first on a wet and soggy field. There were good rains the day before the commencement of the third test, as a result the start of the match was delayed by more than two hours.
Both the test teams have made a change in the bowling department, on New Zealand’s bench we have Andy McKay making his debut here at the Nagpur test and India had to force Zaheer Khan out of the team line up after he sustained a strain injury, as a result Ishant Sharma has taken his place.
India is set to take on New Zealand with a four bowler combination squad, but after the toss Dhoni was quite disappointed, as the pitch would be of no help to the spinners, and India has a spearhead attack from the spinners department. After looking at the condition of the field the question here is very imminent, that why dont the grounds men cover the entire field as the Sri Lankans do. For this will actually help a lot in conditions as such.
