India vs New Zealand, Highlights, 1st Test in Wellington, Day 1: No play in third session due to rain; visitors 122/5 at stumps

10:27 (IST)

That's all we have for today. It was a memorable day for debutant Kyle Jamieson, who picked three wickets on the opening day, which included the likes of Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara. The way he setup Kohli's dismissal was exceptional, considering this is his career's first Test. 

Ajinkya Rahane was unbeaten on 38 while Mayank Agarwal made 34 before getting dismissed. India will resume tomorrow under pressure with Rahane and Rishabh Pant in the middle. Pant has a decent record in Test cricket and he'll be looking to put out a decent performance.

We will also bring you the action of Women's T20 World Cup today. The first match is between India and Australia. Do check our blog, which will be up by 12 pm, for all the updates from the match We will see you tomorrow so till then, have a good one. 

10:10 (IST)

The day's play has been called off due to rain and wet conditions. Don't think India will mind this. The forecast for tomorrow is much better.

News coming in that play has been called off! 

The rain situation has gone bad so the final session will not take place.

Looks like it has started to rain again in Wellington so more delay. 

09:38 (IST)

The rain has stopped and currently the umpires are in the middle inspecting the field of play. Earlier the wind was so strong that the groundsmen struggled to keep the covers in place on time. So there might be a few wet patches near the bowlers' run-up. So, think even if there is no rain, it will take 45 minutes or so to resume the action.

Windy Wellington with rains. Looks like it will go on for a fair bit.

Rain delays third session

Well, 43/2 for India in the second session. New Zealand have continued to dictate terms in the day's play. Meanwhile, right after the end of session a mild drizzle has swept the ground. The pitch is under cover and the intensity of the rain is getting stronger. Looks like we might a longer break now.

Day 1, Tea


Boult to bowl the final over of the session. Just a single from the over as players head for Tea. Rahane and Pant play out close to 14 overs of the session adding just 21 runs but they have temporarily stemmed the fall of wickets. These two have a lot of work still to do. In the first half of the session India lost Agarwal and then Vihari. Boult and Jamieson the wicket-takers in the afternoon session. Meet us after this short break.

Latest Updates: News coming in that play has been called off! The rain situation has gone bad so the final session will not take place.

Preview: The return of pace spearhead Trent Boult will come as a welcome boost for New Zealand in their flagging ICC Test Championship campaign as they face top-ranked India in a two-match series starting at the Basin Reserve in Wellington on Friday.

Boult broke his hand in the second Test against Australia in December and had to sit out the T20I series and one-day matches against India.

“I suppose breaking a hand, you don’t really know how much you use it until it’s broken,” he told reporters this week after playing in a club match.

“Everything has gone well but catching would be the biggest issue for me at the moment. I’m 100% fit and hungry."

“It’s been nice just to be able to bowl.”

India swept the T20 matches 5-0 but Kane Williamson’s side, without several first-choice bowlers, had their chances to win the last three games of that series.

New Zealand turned the tables in the one-dayers, beating India 3-0, and the hosts will look to build on that in the Test series against Virat Kohli’s side, who lead the World Test Championship with 360 points — 64 ahead of second-placed Australia.

New Zealand, who suffered a recent 3-0 hammering in Australia, are sixth on 60 points.

The Basin Reserve match will be Ross Taylor’s 100th Test and he will also become the first man or woman to play 100 games in all three formats.

He played his 100th T20I earlier this month and has also played 231 one-day internationals.

The decision to go for Ajaz Patel ahead of Mitchell Santner in the squad suggests a far more attacking outlook from the hosts and the left-arm spinner is expected to do more than just play a holding role if selected to start.

Kyle Jamieson could earn his Test debut alongside Boult and Tim Southee after left-arm seamer Neil Wagner withdrew from the team on Wednesday.

Wagner’s wife is due to give birth to their first child and a spokesman confirmed he would remain at home until after the birth and had made himself unavailable for the first Test.

Matt Henry has been called in as cover.

The visitors’ Test batsmen all had significant hit-outs in a warm-up match in Hamilton last week, with Cheteshwar Pujara and opener Mayank Agarwal posting half centuries.

Rishabh Pant also scored 70 in the second innings against the New Zealand XI and while he took the gloves in that match, Wriddhiman Saha is expected to be wicketkeeper in Wellington.

However, Rohit Sharma’s calf injury has left a void in the top order and team management are working out who will partner Agarwal at the top.

Prithvi Shaw was previously an automatic choice for the opener’s role before he lost his place to injury and a doping suspension. The Mumbai player will be hoping to be reinstated ahead of the uncapped Shubman Gill.
