For the opening Test, India are without stalwarts like KL Rahul (injury), Virat Kohli (rested), Mohammed Shami (rested), Jasprit Bumrah (rested), and Rishabh Pant (rested). Ajinkya Rahane leads the Test side in absence of regular captain Kohli, who will return for the second Test. Shreyas Iyer received his maiden Test cap. On the other hand, the visitors will be hoping to get off to a good start with Kane Williamson coming back to lead his team in both the encounters. New Zealand, who currently hold the top spot in the ICC Test rankings, crushed India by eight wickets in the ICC World Test Championship 2019-21 final earlier in July.
