India vs New Zealand Test Series 2016

With New Zealand coming to India in the month of September 2016 – test matches return to India after a long gap of a year. India has been playing either shorter format at home or longer version in overseas condition.

However, Team India under Virat Kohli has done great and it has really achieved fabulous results considering it’s a young team and led by a very young leader. Anil Kumble is at the helm while it comes to coaching of the Indian team and they have done fairly well till now under him as well.


Test Match Conditions

We can expect Indian team to play at their strength and make turning tracks to help spinners but they will have to keep in mind that even New Zealand have couple of good spinners in Santhner and Ish Sodhi, Indians would like to avoid 2012 England in India results. Where making turning tracks came back to haunt Indian team only and they ended up loosing the match.

Team Squads – India vs New ZealandĀ 

We can expect both teams to play experienced players and would not like to experiment much with their respective squads, they will also would like to keep it simple and ensure players with experience in Indian conditions get the chance to represent New Zealand team.
