He will have the responsibility to take care the overs of Kuldeep and Chahal in the middle. He was not at his best in IPL but on these pitches he will fancy his chance.
  • Ross Taylor will bat next, he is the most consistent performer for Newzealand in recent time. Recently he has scored 94 runs against middlesex.
  • C Munro may follow next as Latham will not play so Newzealand can give some match practice to him as well but he may or may not bat.
