India will be seeing the return of their original skipper Virat Kohli today and is likely to replace Mayank Agarwal in the Mumbai Test. While India seemed lethal with a bashing knock from debutant Shreyas Iyer 105(171) supported by Jadeja’s cameo 50 they failed to put runs on the board in the second innings. Kohli’s return will strengthen the top order and India will be looking forward to rectifying their mistakes of the first test keeping their undefeated home series streak alive.

IND vs NZ – Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
India is expected to win the match against New Zealand
KhelTalk experts feel India will win against New Zealand in this match. India are undefeated at home since 2012 and with the return of skipper, Virat Kohli, India will be starting as a favorite. India is full of match-winners and the presence of Legend R Ashwin in the spin department gives India a huge edge. Shreyas Iyer’s debut has also proved to be fruitful with him stacking 150+ on the board for his team. Srikar Bharat is another gem discovered with 2 Catches and 1 stumping to his name.
India just needs to rectify the mistakes of the first test as they have the potential to defeat New Zealand. On the other hand, the Kiwis are also a dedicated side under Kane Williamson’s brilliant leadership. They will also look to restrict India from the first day itself.
