So, its a Day-night Match.. India is the Clear Favorite in this match too. Good News for NZ that their Captain is Back in the playing 11.
India wins the toss and elects to bowl first. No changes for India from the last game.

New Zealand make two changes. Vettori comes in for Elliot while Southie replaces injured Tuffey. B McCullum is still out with a back injury.

Dew factor will certainly have effect on this match
Kiwis 62/1 after 15

Very sluggish start to say they are only 1 wicket down!
Am impressed with Sreesanth. Seems to be getting his game and sanity back. He needs to concentrate on his game.
