India vs New Zealand 3rd Test Day 1 Highlights 8th Oct 2016, Watch IND vs NZ Day 1 Cricket Highlights 2016. Eden Garden, Kolkata will host the 3rd and final test between India and New Zealand with the series already decide following two comprehensive wins by India in Delhi and Kanpur. The Black Caps will be desperate for some sort of momentum with the ODI series around the corner, and will be hoping that their batsman can shape up in the final test.
The spinners have dominated the series thus far, and Eden Garden will be more of the same. After the first two test matches not a single batsman has managed to score a century, proving the dominance of the bowling attacks. Ravi Ashwin has been the main difference, taking 14 wickets, while New Zealand’s top spinner Santner has just 9.
New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson has led from the front with the bat, averaging 50 thus far in the series, but will need more support from his top order, who have struggled to cope with the condition in India. The New Zealand bowling attack has been balanced, but perhaps has been found wanting in the quality spin department, with Patel and Sodhi looking out of sorts.
Another huge worry for the Black Caps will be the fact that Indian Captain Virat Kohli has averaged just 20 in the series, meaning that he is due with the bat, which could be punishing for the New Zealand bowling attack. India have four batsman averaging above 50 in the series, showing how they have dominated in this department.
The opening day of the test will be crucial for the tourists who will be hoping they can win the toss and bat first, and batting last on the wickets will see the Indian slow bowlers taking complete control and get them the white wash they are after.
