Wellington, Feb 14: After losing the Auckland Test by a narrow margin of 40 runs, India takes on New Zealand in the second and final Test in Wellington starting on February 14, 2014. The tour has been a disaster for the Indian team as they lost the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series 4-0. The only saving grace for the team was the third ODI which they managed to tie.
Lady luck smiled on MS Dhoni who won the toss and elected to field. The Indian side has played well in the Test as compared to the ODI series. India will be hoping the team clicks at the right time and return home on a winning note. The pick of the bowler remains Ishant Sharma while the batsmen will be lead by Shikhar Dhawan.
