After a humiliating 10-wicket mauling of the visiting team, skipper Virat Kohli is expected to return the favor but will be needing assistance from the entire team in order to overhaul a pumped-up Kiwi side. Not many changes are expected however Wriddhiman Saha is expected to be back in place of Rishabh Pant. From the home teams perspective, Kane Williamson won't be tinkering much with the winning combination except Neil Wagner joining the playing XI in place of Ajaz Patel.
