NZ bowl first
New Zealand win the toss and opt to bowl first. The coin continues to land against Virat Kohli in another important game. Kohli says they would have bowled first as well because of the conditions.
India have not made any changes in their XI which they announced on the eve of Day 1 of this Test match. Kane Williamson confirms a four-man seam attack for the Kiwis which means they will take the field without a spinner.
