Update 10.13 am IST (4.43 am GMT) - Sigh! There was an inspection supposed to take place but before that, it has started to spit again and the covers are back on. As we are typing, it has started to drizzle properly and more covers are coming on. This is frustrating for the ground staff, players and fans. The wait continues...
Update 9.57 am IST (4.27 am GMT) - The match officials are in conversation with the groundsmen. It seems that they are concerned about the soggy outfield.

Update 8.35 am IST (3.05 am GMT) - The rain continues to fall and it has gotten heavier in the last few minutes. The groundsmen were expecting this and that's the reason the covers were on even though there was barely any drop. We've started to lose overs now. Let's hope for the best. Stay tuned...
We have more cricketing action later in the day with Sri Lanka taking on Afghanistan in the 2nd ODI of the 3-match ODI series. Sri Lanka need to win to stay alive in the series but even more importantly, their direct entry to the upcoming 50-over World Cup is at stake. They have to win all their remaining few games to stay in the hunt. As far as Afghanistan are concerned, they have kept themselves away from the chasing pack and by winning the first ODI, they have given themselves some breathing space. 2.30 pm IST (9 am GMT) is the start time for the second ODI.
Update 8.06 am IST (2.36 am GMT) - No fresh update from the ground. The last we heard was the rain eased a bit but the covers were firmly in place. The groundsmen certainly have seen something on the radar that we are not aware of! Stay tuned for more updates...

Time to get underway! The New Zealand players get into a quick huddle before heading to the ground. The conditions remain murky and there will certainly be some assistance for the pace bowlers. Out walk the Indian openers - Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill. Tim Southee, playing his 150th ODI, is all set to kick off proceedings...
Shikhar Dhawan, the skipper of India, says that they would have bowled first as well. Reckons that there would be some moisture due to the covers. Feels that they have to go with the pace of the game with the bat. Adds that they started slow early on but accelerated towards the back end of the innings in the first game. Says that they will look to bat with positive intent in this game. Informs that there are two changes in the playing XI - Deepak Hooda comes in for Sanju Samson and Shardul Thakur is replaced by Deepak Chahar.
Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, says he is bowling first due to the weather as the pitch has been under cover. Wants his bowlers to make use of the conditions. Informs that they have brought in Michael Bracewell in place of Adam Milne. On Tim Southee playing his 150th ODI, Williamson calls it an incredible achievement and that tells you about his great longevity in the game. Feels that India played well with the bat in the first game but he liked the intensity shown by his bowlers.
India (Playing XI) - Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda (In for Sanju Samson), Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar (In for Shardul Thakur), Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal.
New Zealand (Playing XI) - Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson (C), Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (WK), Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell (In for Adam Milne), Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson.
TOSS - The coin toss lands in the favour of New Zealand and they have opted to bowl first.
PITCH REPORT - Ashish Nehra feels it is a very hard deck, the same as the previous game in Auckland. He reckons that it is a 300-run wicket. Ajay Jadeja joins him and says that there might be a little moisture early on due to the covers. Ends by saying that there is enough covering of grass so the ball should come on nicely.
Arshdeep Singh is in for a chat now. Starts by saying that he is grateful to represent India and hopes to do well in future games. Shares that he tries to get batters bowled or LBW when the ball is swinging. Adds that he tries to keep it tight with the old ball. Shares that he tries to back his strengths and be as aggressive as he can. Ends by saying that he takes ground dimensions into account as well as the weaknesses of the batters.
Update 6.34 am IST (1.04 am GMT) - Good news, folks! The covers are coming off. The conditions have certainly brightened up. Toss though is delayed by 10-15 minutes and there is no change in the scheduled start of play.
Matt Henry is in for a chat now. The pacer says that it is always special to play against India. Adds that he has fond memories of playing against them but every time it is a new game. Shares that he has been lucky with injuries and it is all about taking care of yourself. Reckons that New Zealand have slightly different assets with the ball. Also says that Shane Bond was a player he looked up to and it was nice to work with him.
Weather report - The conditions remain overcast and there is a nice breeze blowing across the field. The forecast is for rain and the covers are on as a precautionary measure.
Is that an indication? Simon Doull has an eye of a hawk. The Indian players are going through their warm-up drills and the Kiwi spots that Shardul Thakur is not having his bowling boots on. Will that mean Thakur is not going to play in this match? We will find out soon.
The hosts, New Zealand, had a near-perfect game in the first ODI. Starting with the ball, Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson combined to take six Indian wickets. With the bat, Tom Latham and Kane Williamson stitched a massive 221-run stand to see New Zealand home with 17 balls to spare. Since New Zealand looked settled in the first ODI, they might stick with the same team. With the threat of rain looming large over the second ODI, it will be interesting to see if the weather influences the decision-making of either side. Will New Zealand seal the series in Hamilton, or will India force a series decider? Toss and team news coming up shortly...
Sent into bat first in the first ODI, India failed to make use of the fielding restrictions as they got off to a very cautious start. However, the pair of Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar provided some much-needed impetus to the Indian innings that allowed them to cross the 300-run mark. While defending the total, Indian bowling lacked sharpness and seemed to depend on the opposition making mistakes rather than inducing them. India looked handicapped without a proper sixth bowling option in the first game, and they might look to bolster the bowling attack with some changes.
Hello and welcome to our coverage of the 2nd ODI of the 3-match ODI series between New Zealand and India. Having emerged victorious at Auckland in the first ODI, the hosts hold a 1-0 lead heading into the second ODI. New Zealand will be hoping to take an unassailable 2-0 lead with a win in Hamilton, whereas India will look to bounce back with a win in the second ODI and take the series to a decider in Christchurch.
