India vs New Zealand 1st Test Highlights: New Zealand crushes India for 10 wickets | Cricket News



New Zealand needed 10 balls to eliminate these races! This is a resounding victory for New Zealand against the number one team in the world. From the first moment, it was the Kiwis who directed this game. Yes, they were lucky on day 1 when they won the draw, they chose to play in conditions that were the best to play, in this Test match, however, they made excellent use and grouped the Indians for only 165. Jamieson was the star for them when he shone in the debut with a four-fer. Southee also took four, but Jamieson’s 4 included Kohli, Pujara, Vihari and Sharma. New Zealand managed to form many practical positions and a couple of great ones. Captain Kane Williamson was his top scorer. There were three batters who started. However, it was a general batting effort for them and that effort brought their advantage to about 183. For India, they did not have the same conditions to throw as the Kiwis, but their players looked different in color. Bumrah and Shami were disappointing, although Sharma and Ashwin did a decent job, especially the first one to get a room. India also failed to cross the 200-race mark in its second inning. Agarwal was the only one who showed a certain fight with a 50 but no other hitter managed to cross the 30-run mark. However, they managed to take the lead and make the Kiwis hit again, but it was a thin one that the hosts managed to eliminate in a very short time.

India, faced with a deficit of 183 runs in the first innings, was 144/4 in Stumps on day 3, still 39 in default with Rahane and Vihari in the fold.

New Zealand’s left pacemaker, Trent Boult, stood out on Day 3 with 27/3 figures when India, the world’s best ranked team, seemed lost in New Zealand conditions.

Tourists needed patience and determination while working to amortize the deficit in the 65 excesses they faced before stumps.

After Prithvi Shaw fell early, caught by a Tom Latham who dived back in the square leg to give Boult his first gate, Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara raised the score cautiously to 78/1.

But Pujara was knocked down by Boult in the last ball before tea.

Agarwal went for 58 shortly after the resumption and India fell to 96/3.

He pressed Captain Virat Kohli to perform after a series of low scores in New Zealand, but on 19 his patience abandoned him and a wild blow in a brief delivery of Boult was bitten to the goalkeeper and India was 113/4.
