For Team India the test is crucial as it would be looking for wrapping up the series having already gone one up after having won the first test played at Delhi. Pakistan, which thwarted hosts chance of winning the series after a draw, would be looking for equalling the series by winning at the M Chinnaswamy stadium, their favourite and lucky ground. The visitors had in their previous four outings here had won two with the other two tests drawn.
A win in this ground for Team India would be a bonus for Anil Kumble who got captaincy as Diwali gift. The win would create a record in this ground in both the way of winning the test for the first time and the series against Pakistan.
The teams, after a day's rest would have net practice tomorrow.
