India vs New Zealand 1st Test, Day 1: India take on New Zealand in the first Test of the two-match series at the Green Park in Kanpur starting Thursday. This will be the first Test for Team India under new coach Rahul Dravid where many big names like regular skipper Virat Kohli, pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami and wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant are missing from the squad. Kohli will join and lead the team in the second Test in Mumbai while Ajinkya Rahane is captaining the side for the first Test. Rahane captained India in three Tests during the Australia tour where his young brigade defeated the Tim Paine-led side for the second consecutive time down under. On the other hand, New Zealand, who will go into the game after a 0-3 defeat to the Men in Blue in T20Is will see their regular skipper Kane Williamson returning to the side after a break. The last time these two sides met in a Test match was back in June this year when the Blackcaps lifted the inaugural World Test Championship trophy. (
