KANPUR: Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer feels New Zealand batter Tom Latham will be the key for the Kiwis in the first Test which gets underway on Thursday.
The first Test of the two-match series between India and New Zealand begins on Thursday in Kanpur.
Jaffer said Latham has the ability to succeed in the subcontinent and plays the sweep shot well.
"Tom Latham is going to be key for NZ. He has the game to succeed in the subcontinent. Plays the sweep shot well. Has a hundred in SL, two hundreds in UAE vs Pak, and got three fifties last time NZ were here. Ashwin v Latham is going to be a cracking contest," Jaffer said on Twitter.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson also pointed out that spin will play a big role in the upcoming series against India.
"I suppose it is important to adapt and adjust and see what might be the most effective. As we have seen in this part of the world, the spin component has been very large and it has played a big role in changing the complexion of the game. So I am sure both sides will be aware of that and looking to play strong spin component," said Williamson.
India had defeated New Zealand 3-0 in the three-match T20I series.
