After winning the T20I series against New Zealand with a strong lead of 3-0, India is now all charged up to defeat the Kiwis in the upcoming Test series. The two-match Test series will be played on November 25th and December 3rd. This time the Test team will be led by Ajinjkya Rahane and we might not see some prominent players like Kl Rahul, Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rishabh Pant. That being said, there are have been slight changes in the Indian team for the second 2nd test. Team India captain Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja have been ruled out of the 2nd test due to injuries. Ishant Sharma dislocated his finger, while Ravindra Jadeja has sustained a right forearm injury during the 1st Test match in Kanpur. Moreover, Ajinkya Rahane suffered from a minor left hamstring strain during 1st Test match and he has not been able to recover from it.

The New Zealand team will also try its level best to make a comeback by winning both the matches in the Test series. So, one can easily expect a lot of cricketing action during the Test matches between both teams. However, the question here is: how will you watch it?
