After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said, "Looks a good wicket to bat on, to come out and bowl again with this humidity will make it a tough day. Looks similar to the wicket at Kolkata, this has always been a good cricket wicket."

For New Zealand, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme are roped in for the middle order, while Tom Latham will take the gloves and also bat in the middle order.
