Day 2 Stumps

New Zealand made a strong reply to India's first innings total of 345 all out, reaching 129 for no loss at stumps on the second day of the opening Test here on Friday. Will Young and Tom Latham were batting on 75 and 50 respectively at the close of play on Day 2. New Zealand still trail the hosts by 216 runs.

New Zealand 129/0 in 57 overs Stumps After a lot of discussion between umpires and New Zealand openers, that will be stumps on Day 2 of the first Test. The third session and the day belong to the Kiwis as openers give them a solid start. Earlier, Tim Southee ran through India's lower order. 

New Zealand 128/0 in 55 overs And R Ashwin's genius mind has come up with another idea where he is bowling around the wicket, delivering the ball from close to stumps that he is actually finishing his runup right in front of the stumps. Let's see if this works. Meanwhile, Tom Latham completes his fifty. It's his 21st Test fifty. New Zealand are dominating Day 2 as of now. 

New Zealand 122/0 in 50 overs Unsusal fielding position for Mayank Agarwal as he is on his knees fielding at the second slip. Umpire has a chat with R Ashwin regarding this but it looks like it is well within the rules. Just eight runs were scored in the last five overs. Axar has replaced Jadeja again while Ashwin continues to bowl from the other end. 

New Zealand 114/0 in 45 overs Just 12 runs in last 5 overs by New Zealand openers. Jadeja and Ashwin are bowling stump to stump but Latham and Young are confident on their defence. Axar Patel replaces Jadeja, Young welcomes him with a boundary. 

New Zealand 102/0 in 40 overs Hundred up for New Zealand. Latham is inching towards fifty. R Ashwin and Jadeja are bowling but the duo is not able to find the spot. Young is looking to play on the front foot while the Southpaw is staying on the back foot.  

New Zealand 93/0 in 35 overs New Zealand opening batsman Will Young completed his fifty. New Zealand openers are dominating Indian spinners. Latham is batting on 28 runs in 95 balls. Ajinkya Rahane has used all his five bowlers. Loud LBW shout by Jadeja and Co. but the umpire gives Young not out. Rahane goes for a DRS but it is missing leg, India lose a review.  

Tea Day 2 

New Zealand were 72 for no loss at tea in reply to India's first innings total of 345 on the second day of the opening Test here on Friday. Will Young and Tom Latham were batting on 46 and 23 respectively at the break. New Zealand trail by 273 runs. Earlier, India were all out for 345 in their first innings.

They added just six runs in the second session reaching 339 for eight at lunch. Shreyas Iyer hit a century on his debut before he was out in the morning session. New Zealand pacer Tim Southee took four Indian wickets in the first session on Friday to complete a five-wicket haul.

New Zealand 72/0 in 26 overs at Tea New Zealand batters dominated Indian spinners as they score 24 runs in last six overs. Young, especially was impressive as he use the sweep to good effect. He has scored 46 runs in 86 balls while Latham is on 23 in 72 balls. 

New Zealand 48/0 in 20 overs Indian spin duo are dominating New Zealand openers as they are unable to rotate strike and find gaps. Two big appeals by Jadeja in one over against Latham has put the batter under pressure. Young is trying to stay positive and score quick runs. Just 13 runs in last five overs. 

New Zealand 35/0 in 15 overs Spin from both the ends for Team India as Ravindra Jadeja joins R Ashwin in the attack. Ashwin was asked to bowl early as he was supposed to create a rough patch outside the off stump of Latham. Big appeal on the last ball of Jadeja's over as umpire raise the finger but it was an inside edge that saved Tom. 

New Zealand 23/0 in 11 overs Drinks Break. Indian pacers and R Ashwin have kept the New Zealand batters quiet in the first 11 overs with the run rate of just 2.09. Umesh, Yadav and Ashwin failed to provide India with a breakthrough. Tom Latham and Will Young gave New Zealand a steady start chasing India's 345. 

New Zealand 18/0 in 10 overs After just seven overs of pacer captain Ajinkya Rahane handed the new ball to R Ashwin. Umesh Yadav continues from the other end. New Zealand batsmen are happy to play Ashwin when the ball is not spinning. 

New Zealand 8/0 in 6 overs Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav have really exerted pressure on Kiwi openers Tom Latham and Will Young. In the first six overs, the pace duo hasn't allowed Latham and Young to get off the block by bowling close to the stumps around the off stump line.

India's innings

India were all out for 345 in their first innings on the second day of the opening Test against New Zealand here on Friday. Shreyas Iyer hit a century on his debut before he was out in the morning session. India added just six runs in the second session after they reached 339 for eight at lunch.

India 345 all out in 111.1 overs Indian innings didn't last long after the Lunch break. Ishant Sharma (0) was the last Indian wicket to fall as he was trapped lbw by Ajaz Patel.

India 339/9 in 109.2 overs OUT! Ajaz Patel finally gets his first wicket of the match. The spin bowler dislodges the bells of Ashwin (38) with the turn. The wicket falls as early as the second ball after the Lunch.

India 339/8 in 109 overs Ashwin is on the crease to face Ajaz Patel in the first over after the Lunch break.

India 339/8 in 109 overs  (Lunch break) Ashwin (38*) is moving the scoreboard all alone now while Umesh Yadav was dropped off the last ball before lunch. Earlier it was an eventful morning with Shreyas Iyer starting off on the fifth gear to reach his maiden Test century. The right-handed batter smashed five boundaries to reach his ton. Wickets kept falling at the other end as Tim Southee shone for the visitors with a five-wicket haul. The veteran pacer first castled Jadeja, who fell without adding a run to his overnight score of 50, and then removed Iyer and Axar as well.

India 327/8 in 105 overs Ashwin is pushing India towards 350 after Shreyas Iyer (105) and Axar Patel (3) were dismissed by Tim Southee in quick intervals. Apart from Umesh Yadav (0*), Ishant Sharma is the remaining Indian batter in the pavilion, who is yet to bat.

India 292/6 in 92.2 overs: OUT! Wriddhiman Saha falls right after Iyer reached his century. The 'keeper-batter nicks a full delivery outside the off stump to Blundell behind with the gloves. Saha must take the blame for not committing himself well to the shot. A loose drive with no footwork at all.

India 292/5 in 92 overs Iyer, who has been in great touch since start of the day, reached his maiden Test ton in style by hitting Jamieson for a boundary with a square drive. Iyer wasn't in complete control of the shot but it mattered little.

India 266/5 in 87 overs Jadeja castled by Tim Southee right after a fielder was sent to the deep on the leg side; tricking Jadeja into expecting a bouncer. The southpaw decided to root himself in the crease while the veteran pacer outsmart him with a good length delivery. The ball, coming inwards, took an inside edge and went into the stumps. Wriddhiman Saha joins Iyer in the middle.

India 266/4 in 86 overs After Ravindra Jadeja saw off the first over of the day by Tim Southee, Shreyas Iyer started from where he left last evening with two boundaries off Kylie Jamieson. Are we going to see Iyer bat on the fifth gear this morning?

Day 1 Report: IND vs NZ 1st Test: Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja propel India to 258/4 on Day 1

Debutant Shreyas Iyer was guts, aggression and flair rolled into one during an unbeaten knock of 75, which was nothing short of a baptism by fire, as India ended on 258 for four on the first day of the opening Test against New Zealand here on Thursday. On a pitch that had variable bounce and didn't offer enough pace off it, Iyer put his best foot forward while facing 136 balls, hitting seven boundaries and two sixes on his very first day in office in the longest format of the game.
