Both team captains at the toss

Tim Southee We would have bowled first, taking the dew into consideration, but there’s going to be dew right throughout the game. It’s always about trying to improve, so we had to keep fighting and take the game deep in the first match. We have to focus on the positives. We’ll have to deal with the dew, no point of using it as an excuse, we just need to find a way to put up a good performance. We have three changes. Milne, Neesham and Sodhi are back for Ferguson, Rachin Ravindra and Astle.

Rohit Sharma We are going to field first. We have seen it here, it’s a nice option to go with. Considering the dew factor, it’s good to chase in Ranchi. It was a good effort from the boys. It was good learning for them as they finished the game, it was a good positive to have from that game. The game is such that you need some energy and experience. We have youngsters who want to express themselves, it’s a good setup, it’s important moving forward. We have one change, Harshal comes in for Siraj.

After claiming a thrilling win in the first T20I of the three-match series against New Zealand under the new captain Rohit Sharma and new coach Rahul Dravid, Team India will aim to seal the series in the second T20I here at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi on Friday. In the first T20I, R Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were impressive with the ball while skipper Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav were too good with the bat for Blackcaps bowlers. For New Zealand, the form of Mark Chapman and Martin Guptill will be crucial going forward into the series.
