Will the Black Caps take 4 seamers into Basin Reserve Test?

7:28 am on 12 February 2014

The Basin Reserve wicket was unveiled yesterday as a green seamers paradise.

There has been plenty of rain in the capital in recent days but groundstaff were able to get plenty of work into yesterday.... the forecast is generally good for the rest of the week with the second Test against India starting on Friday.

The Black Caps rolled the West Indies on a similar looking Basin wicket last month.

Coach Mike Hesson wouldn't committ just yet on whether they'll go with 4 seamers or keep leg spinner Ish Sodhi in the team.
