Excellent session for Rahane and Co. as Indian bowlers toppled four wickets and changed the complexion of the match. It was primarily a spin dominated session led by Axar Patel who scalped three crucial wickets of- Latham, Taylor, Nicholls. Jadeja outplayed Rachin Ravindra.

India vs New Zealand 1st Test Day 3, 1st session: The turf at Green Park, Kanpur had a different offering this morning. A comparatively low bounce besides offering a little turn, the pitch seemed a haven for the Indian spinners. Lethal bowling from Ashwin got India the first wicket of Young following which Latham and Williamson carried forward NZ innings. However, just at the stroke of lunch on Day 3, Umesh Yadav removed Kane Williamson and the Indian players returned for an early lunch with happy faces.

New Zealand 192/1 in 83 overs: Tight bowling from the spin web comprising Ashwin, Jadeja and Patel. However, Williamson and Latham look set on the pitch and well acclimatized to the conditions. Eight runs from the previous five overs but the search for the second wicket is still on for the Indian bowling line-up. 

New Zealand 184/1 in 78 overs: Fine bowling spell from Ashwin and Jadeja. Quite frequent close-necked appeals especially from Ashwin's bowling. India desperately looking for the second wicket. The spinners gave away just eight runs from the last five overs.

New Zealand 151/1 in 66.1 overs: WICKET! Ashwin breaks the opening partnership and gets the first wicket for India. The ball outside off stump didn't turn much, kept low and found a faint edge of Will Young's bat. The low catch was safely pocketed by substitute keeper Srikar Bharat. Will Young c (sub)Srikar Bharat b Ashwin 89(214) (4s-15)

New Zealand 143/0 in 63 overs: New Zealand openers- Latham and Young wary of Ashwin's spin. The Kiwi batsmen are careful of the low keeping bowl that is coming with the spin on the abrased turf.

IND vs NZ 1st Test Match Report: Young, Latham fightback after Iyer's maiden Test ton

Tim Southee bowled an incisive morning spell to take five wickets which was then brilliantly complemented by openers Will Young and Tom Latham as New Zealand dominated India to reach 129 for no loss on the second day of the opening Test here on Friday. The only highlight for India in an otherwise disappointing day was Shreyas Iyer's (105 off 171 balls) debut hundred. 

Playing his 80th Test match, Southee (5/69) took his 13th five-wicket haul on an unresponsive track to send India packing for 345 after they started the day at 258 for 4.

Young then held centre-stage in his fourth Test appearance as he looked composed and unperturbed during his unbeaten knock of 75 off 180 balls.

Latham (50 batting off 165 balls), the seasoned campaigner, survived three on-field decisions (two leg before and one caught behind), negated by DRS, and decided to frustrate the two Indian spinners with a gritty defensive game.

The Green Park track became better for batting on the second day and the turn that was on offer was minimal. The variable bounce wasn't also there for the better part of the 57 overs that they batted. Since it was slow turn, the Black Caps duo mostly plonked their front-foot and neutralised the turn. And when they played on the back-foot, there was enough time to manoeuvre on both sides of the wicket.
