Kanpur: New Zealand will field three weirdos in the first test against India. Kiwis trainer Gary Stud has pointed this out. “If the situation calls for it, there will be three specialty spinners on the field against India,” said Gary Stud. The first test between India and New Zealand will be played in Kanpur on Thursday. There are two games in the series.

Ajaz Patel from Mumbai is sure to play alongside veteran weirdo Mitchell Santner. Off-spinner Will Somerville and all-rounder Rajin Jadeja are the other spinners in the squad. Gary Stud suggests playing in Somerville. The lack of a trendy bowler at fast-paced bowling is unlikely to hurt the kiwis. Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamison are the main fast bowlers in the New Zealand lineup.

The first test at Kanpur will begin without Indian batsmen. Virat Kohli, who retired as captain in the Twenty20 series, will not play in the first test. In the absence of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane will lead India. Rohit Sharma, Jaspreet Bhumira, Mohammad Shami and Rishabh Pant got rested from the series. Kane Williamson, who was rested for the Twenty20 series, will play in the Test series.

New Zealand are returning to the Trials streak after losing all three games against India in the Twenty20 series. In the absence of Kane Williamson, Tim Southee and Mitchell Santner led New Zealand. Rohit Sharma, who had taken over the captaincy of Virat Kohli full-time, was able to start the series with a win. This is Rahul Dravid’s first series to replace Ravi Shastri as coach.
