Shikhar Dhawan India Captain
Not in our control, you just have to wait. We were waiting to get the game started, can’t help it. Now looking forward to the 3rd game. I was quite surprised with the surface, I thought it would be seaming quite a bit, but it wasn’t as much as the last match. It was good to bat on and to see Shubman perform this way was very encouraging. We wanted the sixth bowler to come in, so Sanju Samson missed out and Hooda came in. And Chahar was picked because he can swing the ball really well. A few of our guys are resting but this side is still strong, shows the depth of our squad. (On captaincy with a young squad) Damn exciting, makes me feel so young (laughs). No but seriously this is a good opportunity for the guys travelling so far, to see the way Shubman has batted and Umran’s bowling, glad to see that transition. As a team we want to get our processes right, and put on a good performance in Christchurch. Hopefully we can win and enjoy ourselves.
Kane Williamson New Zealand Captain
Disappointing (to lose this game to rain). The weather has been following us. Good team performances for us so far. Latham played a blinder (in Auckland), nice start to the series, looking forward to Christchurch now. Rankings just float around a bit, but it does recognize the hard work you put in as a team. But you try and focus on things that you can control, what cricket you can play. It was nice to make a contribution (in the first ODI) but I got a nice seat to see Latham make that switch in the second half of his innings. Amazing player (Tim Southee) for us in all formats. The quality he has brought on the field and not just that, the longevity of staying on the park and making valuable contributions for so long and being a leader in our group… it’s always nice to celebrate and recognize those.

Pitch Report and Condition
Looks like a very hard deck, can sense 300 again. Maybe a little bit of moisture early because the covers have just come off. It’s a good wicket and unlike start-stop nature of this surface, there’s enough covering of grass which means it could come on nicely onto the bat” reckon Ajay Jadeja alongside Ashish Nehra.
New Zealand won the TOSS and chose bowl first
