Rohit Sharma won the toss in the 2nd ODI vs New Zealand and opted to bowl first. Both teams went in unchanged, but the highlight was the way Rohit Sharma reacted after winning the toss. With a hand over his head, Sharma forgot what he wanted to do and took his own sweet time to make the decision. 

Tom Latham, on the other hand, just like everybody around, stood smiling and looked confused. With dew around, Rohit's ultimate decision to bowl bodes well as batting under lights would become a bit easy.  "I forgot what we wanted to do. Actually had plenty of discussions with the team about the toss decision, just wanted to challenge ourselves under difficult conditions, but we'll bowl first. Was a good test for us, knowing that the wicket will get better to bat on and that was the challenge in front of us," said Rohit

How's The Pitch Expected To Play?

No international game has been played at this venue. From what we have seen in a few IPL and CLT20 games, the pitch does offer some assistance to pacers and spinners. It is one of the most balanced wickets in India. If the pitch assists the bowlers, one can expect a score in the range of 250-280. If not, well, the sky's the limit.
