The upcoming series will be an important test for Kohli-led side, who recently lost in the World Test Championship (WTC) final. New Zealand defeated India by eight wickets, at the Ageas Bowl.
The visitors have already faced a huge setback, with Rishabh Pant having tested positive for coronavirus. The wicketkeeper-batsman hasn’t travelled to Durham and won’t feature in the practice match.
