Kanpur: India have opted to bat first after winning the toss. Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal are all set to open while Shreyas Iyer has been handed his Test debut by stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane. 

New Zealand have never won a Test series in India. KL Rahul has been ruled out of the two-match Test series against New Zealand as the Indian opener had sustained a muscle strain on his left thigh. Suryakumar Yadav has been added to the squad as KL Rahul's replacement. Rahul's injury is a massive setback to the Indian team with the likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli already missing. Kohli will return to lead the side in the second Test in Mumbai but Rohit has been rested from the entire series.

Latest update: India were batting on 15 runs for no wicket in 5 overs, when the last reports came in. 

India: Ajinkya Rahane (captain), Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Jayant Yadav, Srikar Bharat (2nd wk), Prasidh Krishna

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Tom Latham (wk), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell (wk), Will Young, Glenn Phillips (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Kyle Jamieson, William Sommerville, Ajaz Patel, Mitchell Santner, Rachin Ravindra
