New Delhi: The Indian team was close to winning the First Hala Test, but New Zealand drew. Team India will be stronger with Kohli's arrival. On the other hand, the team's problem will be compounded when New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is dropped from the second Test. His elbow injury has emerged. New Zealand missed Neil Wagner in the Kanpur Test, who could have troubled the Indian batsmen in the second innings. In that case, Wagner can be taken into the team by eliminating Will Summerville.
