Ind vs NZ, 3rd test, Basin Reserve, Wellington, April 03, 2009.
New Zealand all geared up to square the series with a win. India moves to Basin Reserve, Wellington with the score reading 1 - 0 in this series against New Zealand. Team India can prove the world, that they are the best by registering a win at Basin Reserve, where conditions are quiet different from those in the sub-continents.

Team New Zealand
Glenn Turner, the chairman of selectors, has confirmed that Jacob Oram is not included in the squads. In fact, he was not even considered for selection, as he continues to recover from injuries.
Tim Southee and Daniel Flynn have been recalled to NZ's squad for 3rd Test on Friday. I think Southee's inclusion might be due to the factor, that New Zealand was not able to pick up all the Indian wickets twice in 3 days. Southee might add variety to the attack, though in his last appearance in Christchurch ODI he was all around the park with 105 runs in 10 overs. But this is a different format, hope he is among wickets in this test match.
Flynn is expected to be fit before Friday; his availability will be confirmed only on Friday. Jamie How, who is not among runs in Napier test, will remain in the squad as a cover player for Flynn.

Here goes NZ squad,

New Zealand squad: Martin Guptill, Tim McIntosh, Daniel Flynn, Ross Taylor, Jesse Ryder, James Franklin, Brendon McCullum (wk), Daniel Vettori (capt), Kyle Mills, Tim Southee, Jeetan Patel, Iain O'Brien, Chris Martin.
