Highlights, Ind vs NZ 1st Test, Full Cricket Score, Day 1: Iyer and Jadeja's fifties guide hosts to 258/4 at stumps

India vs New Zealand Live Score, Final Cricket Score and Live Streaming, Latest Updates: SIX! Iyer hits with the turn after getting one in the slot, and hits this well enough for the ball to sail over the midwicket part of the fence, and land among the spectators. Second six of the innings for Iyer, who moves to 75 with that shot. And it’s STUMPS on Day 1 at the end of this over as the umpires have decided the light is insufficient for play to continue any further, bringing to the opening day to an end.

16:43 (IST)

That brings us to the end of our coverage of the opening day of the first Test between India and New Zealand at the Green Park in Kanpur. The fifth-wicket stand between Iyer and Jadeja certainly has given the home team hope of posting a solid first innings total in excess of 400, though a couple of early wickets tomorrow could swing things back in the Black Caps' favour.

Do join us tomorrow for Day 2. For now, this is Amit Banerjee bidding you all goodbye!

16:41 (IST)

Kyle Jamieson speaks to the commentators after stumps:

Jamieson: (On Indian conditions) It’s a little different from back home. Nice to have some swing. I’ve hardly played in the last couple of months, so took a while to find my rhythm. Nice to get back into the park and play Test cricket. The new ball swings in the morning and we can take a few. At the same time, two classy guys (Iyer and Jadeja) in the centre. I think we hung around pretty good till four down. If we get a good start tomorrow morning, we can get into a good position."

16:34 (IST)

After 84 overs,India 258/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 75 , Ravindra Jadeja 50)

SIX! Iyer hits with the turn after getting one in the slot, and hits this well enough for the ball to sail over the midwicket part of the fence, and land among the spectators. Second six of the innings for Iyer, who moves to 75 with that shot.

And it’s STUMPS on Day 1 at the end of this over as the umpires have decided the light is insufficient for play to continue any further, bringing to the opening day to an end.

16:31 (IST)

In a league of his own
 

16:26 (IST)

After 83 overs,India 252/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 69 , Ravindra Jadeja 50)

Two from the over, with Jadeja bringing out the sword celebrations after completing a quick single in the third delivery to bring up his half century. The pair will perhaps look to see off the remaining overs of the day and try and preserve his wicket.

16:25 (IST)
fifty

Fifty up for Ravindra Jadeja! The all-rounder dashes off for a quick single after tapping the ball towards mid off, completing the milestone in 99 deliveries, and brings out the iconic sword celebration. This is his 17th Test half-century. IND 252/4

16:22 (IST)

After 82 overs,India 250/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 69 , Ravindra Jadeja 49)

As expected, Kyle Jamieson returns from the other end and starts off his new spell with a delivery that stays low and challenges Jadeja’s outside edge. Jadeja then collects back-to-back boundaries to take the fifth-wicket stand past the 100-mark, and is one short of his fifty after collecting a single off the last delivery.

16:19 (IST)
four

FOUR! Jamieson fires a length ball down the leg side, and Jadeja tucks this towards the fine leg fence to bring up the century stand with Iyer in style. The pair have consumed 192 deliveries so far. IND 245/4

16:17 (IST)

After 81 overs,India 241/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 69 , Ravindra Jadeja 40)

And the Black Caps have decided to make use of the second new ball right away. Tim Southee gets to make first use of it, and starts off his new spell with a maiden.

16:11 (IST)

After 80 overs,India 241/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 69 , Ravindra Jadeja 40)

Jadeja runs the ball down the ground off the fourth, followed by an on drive off Iyer’s bat through midwicket, both collecting a single as a result. Two from the over, with the second new ball now available for the Black Caps. Will Williamson take it right away and bring Jamieson and Southee back?

India vs New Zealand 1st Test preview: India take on New Zealand in the first of the two Tests, in Kanpur.

The Kiwis beat India in the first cycle of the World Test Championship final six months ago to lift the title. Since then they have met a few times in white-ball cricket. It will be different ball game this time though as the Kiwis will be playing on the Indian soil.

They will face an uphill task against the Indian spin attack which is one of the best in the world. The last time the Kiwis toured India, they were outclassed 3-0. R Ashwin and R Jadeja combined to take 41 out of the 57 wickets taken by the bowlers.

Ashwin has been in good touch of late having returned to the white-ball side after four years. He will be the biggest threat to the Kiwis.

The Kiwi batsmen would have to show more application and adapt to the conditions quickly as the turnaround time from white-ball to red-ball cricket has been very short. There are no practice matches as well.

Kane Williamson, who played a couple of brilliant innings in the WTC final, will be the key for the Kiwis in that middle order.

India will be missing some of their first-choice players in Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami Rishabh Pant, who have been rested. Kohli has been rested for the first Test and Ajinkya Rahane will lead in his absence. India received a blow ahead of the series as KL Rahul was ruled out of the series due to thigh strain.

Suryakumar Yadav has replaced him in the squad. This means that Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill will in probability open the batting. And Rahane confirmed that Shreyas Iyer will make his Test debut, so he will most likely bat at No 4 in absence of Kohli.

Rahane and Pujara will be looking to get back to their best after struggles of late.

Kane Williamson will be hoping that some luck goes his way with regards to the toss which could be crucial. Last series, he lost all the tosses and scoreboard pressure does play a role especially in India.

The Kiwis would be looking for their first series win in India while rampant India would be looking to make it 14 series wins in a row at home. We can expect an enthralling contest.
