This is a golden opportunity for New Zealand to win the series when India go without superstars. New Zealand last won a Test series in India in 1988. The Kiwis have a golden opportunity to end their 33 – year wait. Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and Jaspreet Bumra are not with India.

Defeating India at the plate is not an easy task. No team has won a Test series in India in recent times. Under the tutelage of Ravi Shastri, India’s Test team has made great strides. This is the first Test series since Shastri was replaced by Rahul Dravid.

India will not be able to win the Test series as easily as they did in the T20 series. The lack of superstars for India is likely to backfire. In the absence of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, Shubhman Gill and Mayank Agarwal will be paired in the opening. The team has high hopes for senior players Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. The recent performances of both are not so great. Cheteshwar Pujara has scored a century in 1057 days. Rahane was disappointed on the last tour of England. The batting performance of both the batsmen will be crucial for India when they return home. While India have high hopes as superstars, both need to rise accordingly. Otherwise the team is more likely to be eliminated.
