Opener Prithvi Shaw had a swelling on his left leg and skipped the nets on Thursday (February 27) and it raised doubts over his availability for the Hagley Oval Test. But head coach Ravi Shastri gave a go-ahead for Shaw, and rest assured he will be opening with Mayank Agarwal. Similarly, Shastri hinted at a tight competition for the spinner's slot between R Ashwin, who had played at Wellington, and Ravindra Jadeja. Shastri talking about the overall utility and batting could well be a tilting factor.

The first Test's best performer with the ball, Ishant Sharma is set to miss the second Test with an ankle injury. Umesh Yadav will replace him in the side.

New Zealand, who had taken a 1-0 lead in the series, might just reinforce their bowling attack adding Neil Wagner for this Test, though a call is expected only on Saturday. Wagner can unsettle batsmen with his pace and ability to bowl accurate short-pitched balls. And the Hagley Oval trampoline is expected to offer bounce and carry to the quicks.
