The weather is nice and cool during the IND-L vs NZ-L fixture with some dew in the air.
The Indore track generally aids seamers a bit. The boundaries are very small though and runs should be easy to come by. Batting second is a better option.

Ross Taylor brings with him immense experience of playing in India. He is New Zealand’s most prolific player and has had a lot of successful exploits in the nation. Facing India as well, Ross Taylor has done enough to torment the Indians and he will be hoping turn back the clock as he does the same against the Legends.
Sachin Tendulkar has had a quiet tournament so far. In his only innings, the ball came off the bat very nicely but a traditional long innings from the little master is yet to be seen. Hopefully with a challenging attack ahead, crowds will be treated to the best of Sachin Tendulkar one more time.
India and New Zealand are known for some nice and unexpected encounters. Now, while India seem in front, New Zealand’s unpredictability against the Indians may put them ahead coming into the contest.
