Live Score Card

5:39 am:

WICKET ALERT! Latham (52) leaves when he misjudges one of Shami who intervened to hit the stump while he chose to leave it. NZ 130/4, trail for 112 races.

5:34 am: Tom Latham brings out his 17th century, a fight of 119 balls.
New Zealand 127/3, following for 115 races.

5:24 am: Jadeja is doing the job for which Kohli took him: he got a gate, kept the races low and allowed the pacemakers to have a much needed break. 1/10 so far in its four overs.
NZ 119/3, trail for 123 races.

5:14 am:
JADEJA SMELL! Taylor (15) loses patience and ends up mistreating while trying to dance on the floor. Umesh takes a good catch running backwards. NZ 109/3 at 38.4 overs, trail by 133.

NZ 101/2, trail for 141 races.

4:53 am: Clearly, Kiwi batters, Latham (38 *) and Taylor (9 *), have thrown the anchor after the hosts lost two first wickets today. Now they are looking to negotiate the movement early in the morning on the air and off the field.

63/0, and Umesh Yadav running to play first in India.

3:15 pm Welcome once again to the coverage of Timesofindia.com of the second and final Test between India and New Zealand to be played in Christchurch, where India will watch some quick wickets in the morning.

India regretted another batting failure the first day after New Zealand put visitors to bat in a green top at the Hagley Oval.

Prithvi Shaw (54) and Cheteshwar Pujara (54) struck half a century in contrast to take the fight to the rival camp. However, the dismissal of Hanuma Vihari (55 of 70 balls) to the blow of tea tipped the scales in favor of New Zealand.

Kyle Jamieson (5/45) cast an inspired spell after tea to fly to the low and medium order batters of India, as the visitors were grouped by 242.

The hosts finished the day with 63 lossless with Toms – Latham (27 batting) and Blundell (29 batting) barely worried about Indian pacemakers.
