Mumbai: Wet patches at the Wankhede Stadium delayed the toss in the second Test between India and New Zealand on Friday after two days of rain in Mumbai.
Umpires were to inspect the surface at 9:30 am (0400 GMT) with ground staff working to make play possible as skies cleared in the western port city.
New Zealand, led by Kane Williamson, mounted a dramatic rearguard action to hang on for a hard-fought draw in the first encounter of the two-match series.
India skipper Virat Kohli returns to action after he stepped down as national Twenty20 captain last month following the World Cup and took a short break.
