We are almost ready for the start of play and the 40, 000 or so crowd inside the stadium is absolutely buzzing. But first, the two teams will line up for their respective national anthems. It will be New Zealand's national anthem first followed by the Indian national anthem.
Mitchell Santner, the captain of New Zealand says that they were challenged in the ODI series but this gives them another opportunity to play India which doesn't come often. Adds that this is a good experience for some of the younger players to play against India at their home which will also give them the chance to shape their team for the T20 World Cup next year. Mentions that they would have bowled first as well and says that Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls have gone back home and Ish Sodhi and Mark Chapman comes in.
Hardik Pandya, the skipper of India says that they will bowl first and adds that there will be a lot of dew in the second innings. Mentions that they want to go out there and play the best they can and the beauty about a young team is the extra energy they bring in. Says that playing the ODI series before the T20 series makes it a bit easier for the transition. Mentions that playing for India has been a honor for everyone and the young guys are keeping on learning. Informs that Yuzvendra Chahal, Mukesh Kumar, Jitesh Sharma and Prithvi Shaw, unfortunately, miss out.

PITCH REPORT - Danny Morrison is pitchside. He says that the average first innings score here is 156 and the square boundaries are a bit over 60 meters with the straight boundaries being over 70 meters. Ajit Agarkar joins him and says that the pitch looks excellent and there's an even covering of grass. Adds that there will be help for the seamers early on and the dew factor will be crucial but the outfield is cut in such a way that the dew can be kept to a minimum.
