Former Blackcap: Conditions should favour Kiwis against India

Today is the day, rain permitting.

The ICC World Test Championship Final starts at 9.30pm this evening.

Being played at a neutral venue adds an extra element that is not often seen in test cricket.

The Blackcaps have lost both ICC finals we've played in, but we have just completed a stellar test series against England.

So how are we going to perform?

Richard Petrie, former Blackcaps bowler who is now a mental skills coach, told Kate Hawkesby the conditions are likely to favour the Kiwi side.

“The conditions are a bit more like New Zealand conditions than they are Indian conditions. The teams do travel, so the Indians play all round the world, but it might be a little bit of an advantage to New Zealand playing in English conditions."
