India vs New Zealand Strongest first-choice Test Series Playing 11
Here you can see the India Squad for the Test Series against New Zealand. The start of the World Test Championship 2021-23 was very positive for Team India. India remained a strong team in the championship with a 2-1 win in the England Test series. This is a great achievement for Team India considering their struggle in Test cricket in England.
After that assignment, Team India has now moved to a more comfortable environment at home to face New Zealand. While New Zealand is a very strong team, the same cannot be said looking at their performances over the years in India. Only twice in 34 Tests has New Zealand been able to win in India. Surprisingly, they have not won a Test series in India yet.
