The no.1-ranked Test team India tasted their first defeat in the ICC World Test Championship history after recently losing the Wellington Test against the hosts New Zealand.

It was the first game of the two-match Test series between the hosts New Zealand and the visitors India. While the hosts won that match by ten wickets, India can only save the series by winning the second and last Test. The series decider final Test of this series will be played at Hagley Oval (Christchurch) from 29th February.

While the upcoming Christchurch Test will be the must-win game for India, the visitors can make three changes from the last Test playing XI. These possible changes have been briefly discussed here.
