Undone by spin in the opening match, New Zealand's embattled cricket team is hoping that the overcast conditions here would favour its pace bowlers when it takes on India in the second and final match of the series starting on Friday.


Their pace bowlers are hoping to utilise the overcast conditions prevailing at Chinnaswamy Stadium to their advantage in the second Test starting August 31.


"At the moment the wicket looks nice and has a bit of grass on it, but I expect it to be removed before the Test begins. The overcast weather here looks to be helping us and it might work in our favour," all-rounder Doug Bracewell said.
