Spinner Mitchell Santner will be the key to halt the flow of runs for India in the middle overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar scalped 3 wickets sending the openers Guptill and Munro back. After a below-par effort from the bowlers in the first match, India came up with a spirited and disciplined bowling performance in the second match to square the series.
India hit back in the second game in Pune with a six-wicket win of their own to level the three-match series 1-1, but Tim Southee felt that his team was more excited than nervous going into the all-important clash at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur on Sunday (October 29).
