2nd Test: India win toss, elect to bat first against New Zealand

| @indiablooms | 03 Dec 2021, 12:07 pm

Mumbai/IBNS: Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first against New Zealand in the second Test here on Friday.

Kohli is returning to the squad after being rested from international cricket for three T20s and a Test.

India have made three changes to their side.

Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma are ruled out of the Test for injuries.

Apart from Kohli, Jayant Yadav and Mohammed Siraj have made it to the playing XI.

New Zealand too have brought a change to their side.

Daryl Mitchell has replaced injured Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson, whose absence has prompted Tom Latham to play the captain's role.

The first day's play begins with a delay at 12 pm due to rains.
