Kiwis were lead by Tom Latham and he won the toss and chose to bowl first.
It was actually a bold step by the Captain as chasing big totals are really difficult. Considering the toss, India started off with a great start. India tested newbies this time and good that they performed really well. To pick a few names, Shreyas Iyer, Mayank Agarwal, Shivam Dube, and Saini.
