In the lead up to the game, Dharamsala has remained fairly warm during the day before becoming considerably cooler after sunset. The forecast for Sunday is on similar lines. HPCA chief curator Sunil Chauhan said the surface will be seamer-friendly, but aid stroke-play. “I’m hoping for a 270-plus score,” he said. “The idea was to prepare a pitch that remains good for 100 overs.
Dew is likely to set in by the end of the first innings and that it might help the chasing side. The last time New Zealand came to India they sprung a surprise by playing three spinners in their opening game. There was not much that could be gleaned from their practice sessions on their probable XI, but there will likely be a toss-up between Matt Henry and Tim Southee for the second seamer’s position.
India doesn’t have the services of another comeback man, Suresh Raina – he is recovering from a fever. Going by the batting and bowling sequence in India’s practice session, Mandeep Singh and Umesh Yadav are likely to sit out. On the eve of the game, Kedar Jadhav had a lengthy batting stint followed by a brief session of off-spin bowling, which suggests he might be called upon to bowl a few overs in the middle stages if required.
Despite bowling for nearly three-fourths of India’s nets session, it seems likely that Jayant Yadav will be superfluous to a side that has two other spinners in Amit Mishra and Axar Patel. MS Dhoni indicated he will bat slightly higher up the order, possibly at No. 5.
