Highlights, India vs New Zealand, 2nd Test, Full cricket score: Hosts lead by 332 runs in 2nd innings

17:32 (IST)

So, that's that for the day now. Ajaz Patel might have stolen the spotlight with all 10 wickets in the Indian first innings, but Kiwis'performance in their batting took a major backseat, being bundled out for 62. India have all 10 wickets intact, and enjoy a lead of 332 runs. It will be interesting to see if the hosts manage to wrap up the match on Day 3. Until then, it's goodbye from us!

17:27 (IST)

After 21 overs,India 69/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 38 , Cheteshwar Pujara 29)

Somerville continues, as New Zealand keep on resisting with spinners. Still no breakthrough for the Kiwis, and six runs come off the 21st over. Highlight of the over was Mayank's boundary, thumping a flighted ball over the bowlers' head towards long-off for a four. 

Meanwhile, Tim Southee is seen with the ball for the next over, but the umpires are having a chat with a couple of NZ players. However, the light isn't good and the umpires decide it's stumps on Day 2 courtesy bad light. 

17:15 (IST)

After 20 overs,India 63/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 33 , Cheteshwar Pujara 28)

A slight delay in resumption of play as Mayank is seen getting a treatment from the Indian team physio Nitin Patel. Ajaz is seen having a chat with Somerville, in the meantime. Rachin Ravindra comes into attack for the first time this innings. He concedes a four in the second ball, with Agarwal finding the boundary ropes. 

17:10 (IST)

After 19 overs,India 59/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 29 , Cheteshwar Pujara 28)

Somerville continues. Concedes just three runs in the over, including a brace from Mayank. India gaining momentum here.

16:51 (IST)

After 15 overs,India 50/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 24 , Cheteshwar Pujara 26)

Jamieson continues. Mayank with a big pull shot over midwicket, right from the middle of the bat as the ball races past the boundary ropes. The partnership between Mayank and Pujara is now 50. Players take a breather for drinks break. 

16:39 (IST)

After 12 overs,India 38/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 13 , Cheteshwar Pujara 25)

Ajaz Patel continues. He looks tired, and isn't getting the rhythm he got in the first innings. A short ball in the end of the over, and Pujara pulls over midwicket for a six. Eight runs from the over. 

16:37 (IST)

SIX! Short ball from Ajaz and Pujara pulss over the midwicket fence for a maximum

16:33 (IST)

After 11 overs,India 30/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 12 , Cheteshwar Pujara 18)

Kyle Jamieson into the attack. It's his first over of the second innings. He's failed to make an impact in the first innings, but what can he do now? Maiden to start off his fresh spell. 

16:28 (IST)

After 10 overs,India 30/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 12 , Cheteshwar Pujara 18)

Ajaz Patel continues. Pujara with a single in the first ball of the over, and Mayank too collects a quick single off the fifth ball. 

16:13 (IST)

After 6 overs,India 20/0 ( Mayank Agarwal 5 , Cheteshwar Pujara 15)

Ajaz Patel continues. Pujara with an elegant boundary, opening the face of the bat to drive through deep extra cover for a four. Just the four off it.

Ajaz Patel might have stolen the spotlight with all 10 wickets in the Indian first innings, but Kiwis 'performance in their batting took a major backseat, being bundled out for 62. India have all 10 wickets intact, and enjoy a lead of 332 runs. It will be interesting to see if the hosts manage to wrap up the match on Day 3. Until then, it's goodbye from us!

Day 1 report: Mayank Agarwal’s fifth Test hundred rescued India from a precarious position on Friday as the hosts reached 221-4 at stumps on day one of the second Test against New Zealand.

Agarwal finished the day at 120 not out, while Wriddhiman Saha was unbeaten on 25. Ajaz Patel took 4-73 in 29 overs to put a dent in the Indian top-order, with Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli both falling for ducks.

India had reached tea at 111-3 at tea after the morning session was washed out due to a wet outfield. The toss was delayed by two-and-a-half hours and play finally got underway at noon local time.

Openers Agarwal and Shubman Gill (44) combined for 80 runs before Patel provided the breakthrough with Gill caught at slip. It sparked a mini-collapse with Pujara clean bowled and Kohli, returning after sitting out the first test, given out to a dubious lbw decision.

But Agarwal rescued India from 80-3 and added 80 runs for the fourth wicket with Shreyas Iyer (18) on either side of tea.

Agarwal then continued showing the same confidence that had helped him break a run of poor form stretching to the last 13 innings.

He struck seven more fours and another two sixes in the final session and countered New Zealand’s spinners with ease using immaculate footwork. Overall, he hit 14 fours and four sixes.

“It was a great knock (from Agarwal)," Gill said. "He was absolutely determined and it was a great innings. To be able to play 250 balls in a day and remain unbeaten is great.”

Shreyas Iyer (18) fell to Patel after adding 80 runs for the fourth wicket with Agarwal. It came against the run of play as the first-test centurion was caught behind.

India was 160-4 at that stage. Saha then helped put on 61 runs for the fifth wicket with Agarwal.

The opener reached his century off 196 deliveries. It was his first test hundred since November 2019, when Agarwal had scored 243 against Bangladesh in Indore.

With Saha, he helped push India’s score past 200 in the 62nd over.
