New Zealand had an excellent first session on Day 2. They quickly opened the remaining lands of India in the first hour and now enter unscathed to rest. Both Latham and Blundell have overcome the difficult period and also cut 17 of the deficit. More of the same is what the Kiwis would want. India, on the other hand, has not been very bad with its bowling. Bumrah has been a bit short but Ishant has been good. However, the wicket seems to have eased and does not offer much help.

Ishant Sharma shares the red cherry with Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah launches the first meeting for India, Tom Latham on strike

Five wickets in just over an hour complete an excellent bowling performance of the Kiwis! Kane Williamson could not have asked for anything more from his bowlers after choosing to play bowling. They got rid of the higher order at a low price. The middle order showed no resistance and the lower order could not do anything substantial today. Only the 43 races is what the Indians could add. Rahane was the only man who showed a certain fight. Pant also looked good before it ran out. The procession began from there and India has grouped for a negligible total. For the Kiwis, Southee and Jamieson were the choice of bowlers. Both ended up with 4 wickets each.

OVERS 64.2: FOUR! Shami exceeds a Southee delivery over a ravine for his first limit

OVERS 62.5: Ishant gets caught, but goes to the review knowing that he has not surpassed Southee’s delivery and the repetitions confirm that there is no advantage. They also verify the LBW since the ball had hit the pad but the impact was off the line

OFFERS 62.3: OUT! Rahane (46) seeks to abandon Southee’s delivery, but when he takes the bat out of the way, the ball has gone over the edge into the hands of goalkeeper Watling. India 143/8

OFFERS 58.2: OUT! WITHOUT!! Rahane hits a Southee delivery to signal and calls Pant for a quick single, who doubts with his eyes on the ball, but by that time Rahane is already in the middle of the field, Pant (19) then runs but fails to beat a Ajaz Patel’s direct hit that had a stump to aim and the shot was perfect. ABSOLUTE DISASTER! India 132/6

OVERS 55.4: GREAT HIT! First scoring shot of the day and it’s a Pant SIX that destroys it in the middle of the wicket. India 128/5

Ajaz Patel plays the first part of the day, Rishabh Pant on strike

The game will be extended in the second and last session to compensate for part of the lost time.


Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant leave in the middle to resume India’s first entries on Day 2 of the first Test at the Wellington Basin Reserve.

The first day of the test belonged to the Kiwis and probably everything went well for them.

New Zealand won the draw and chose to launch under cloudy conditions on green ground. Their bowlers justified the decision, as they continued to take wickets at regular intervals and also made the score very difficult for India.

The Kiwis were rewarded early when Tim Southee eliminated Prithvi Shaw by 16 with an outwinger who picked up the stump when the opener tried to drive without moving his feet.

The debutant Kyle Jamieson was the choice of bowlers for the Kiwis, as he took three portholes that included Indian captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara.

Jamieson showed his safe hands to catch Mayank Agarwal after the Indian starter beat Trent Boult on a long leg.

Jamieson added to his wicket account after lunch with another more complete delivery that Hanuma Vihari (7) beat wicketkeeper BJ Watling.
