Can India breach Hagley Oval fortress to save the Test series?

Feb 28, 2020 12:50 IST

After a crushing defeat in the first Test, India are now left with no breathing space as the 2nd and final Test at Christchurch is a do or die affair for them. New Zealand exposed India's weakness against swing and Hagley Oval is expected to have a similar pitch. Moreover, this ground is the most successful home venue for the Kiwis who have lost just 1 of their 6 Tests here, whereas India will play its first Test at the Hagley Oval on Saturday. Virat Kohli's men had a perfect wake up call in Wellington and the number 1 Test side is surely up for the Kiwi challenge and will look to avoid their first Test series defeat in 17 months.
