Thank you joining us today in our coverage. We hope to see you tomorrow, hang around for all the news, updates, analysis and opinions that will follow throughout the day on Firstpost. See you at 3 am IST tomorrow. It is the third day, the moving day.

11:45 (IST)

That's it for the day. The light has faded away significantly in the last 15 minutes or so. Hence the umpires are left with no option but to call it a day. Nevertheless, it has been a good session for the visitors as the three wickets in that extended final session has given India some oxygen. However, with a lead of 51 and still five wickets in hand, New Zealand are firmly ahead in this Test match.

After 71.1 overs,New Zealand 216/5 ( BJ Watling (W) 14 , Colin de Grandhomme 4)

The umpires have called it stumps on day two owing to fading light in Wellington. Plenty of overs left in the day but umpires have checked the light it wasn't fit to play, looks like it was already belated decision, Virat Kohli is expectedly not happy with it but the right call has been taken. So, India have made a comeback late into the Test on a day that been largely dominated by the Kiwis, they still hold the advantage but a wicket or two early on day three and the equation will quickly change. 

New Zealand lead by 51 runs with still five wickets in hand.

FOUR! Bumrah is recalled into the attack and his first delivery goes to third man boundary via a thick edge from Watling's bat. It remained all along the ground because of the soft grip

After 71 overs,New Zealand 212/5 ( BJ Watling (W) 10 , Colin de Grandhomme 4)

Ishant Sharma returns to the bowling crease. After four dots to Watling, he slides one on the pads that is nudged to fine leg for a single. De Grandhomme ends the over with a boundary and by the virtue of that he also opens his scoring.

FOUR! Short and wide, asking to be hit and De Grandhomme obliges, flat bat and smashed through extra cover for his first runs.

11:36 (IST)

After 70 overs,New Zealand 207/5 ( BJ Watling (W) 9 , Colin de Grandhomme 0)

Ashwin tastes success in New Zealand for the first time as he gets rid of Henry Nicholls, who was just looking to find his feet but the star off-spinner undone him with a brilliant off-break. Colin de Grandhomme joins Watling in the middle for now less than 30 mins of play left in the day.

OUT! Ashwin strikes to end a fledging partnership. Henry Nicholls is man dismissed with Virat Kohli taking the catch in gully. Great bowling from Ashwin, tossing the ball and getting the ball to drift in and then leave the left-hander. Another timely wicket for India. Indian captain as usual is extra jubiliant.

11:30 (IST)

After 69 overs,New Zealand 202/4 ( Henry Nicholls 16 , BJ Watling (W) 5)

Nicholls finds the fence of the first ball of Shami's over, the shadows of the fielders around the bat getting longer spreading over the pitch as the light starts to fade and spotting the ball will become slightly more challenging. NZ go past the 200-run mark with six runs coming off the over.

11:30 (IST)

Feel if India manage to contain New Zealand with a lead not more than 100-120 then they have a genuine chance of getting back in this game. The pitch will be best for batting on Day 3 and the Kiwis have already lost both Williamson and Taylor. So, one or two wickets in this last hour's play will open the game for sure.

Latest Updates, 1st Test, Day 2 India vs New Zealand: The umpires have called it stumps on day two owing to fading light in Wellington. Plenty of overs left in the day but umpires have checked the light it wasn't fit to play, looks like it was already belated decision, Virat Kohli is expectedly not happy with it but the right call has been taken. So, India have made a comeback late into the Test on a day that been largely dominated by the Kiwis, they still hold the advantage but a wicket or two early on day three and the equation will quickly change.

Day 1 report: The final session of the first day’s play in the opening Test between New Zealand and India at the Basin Reserve was washed out by heavy rain on Friday, giving the tourists time to regroup after they were reduced to 122-5 at tea.

The rain swept in seconds after the players had left the field for the tea break and, despite the skies clearing, umpires Aleem Dar and Richard Kettlebrough ended play at about 5.30 p.m. (0430 GMT) after a pitch inspection.

New Zealand pace bowler Kyle Jamieson enjoyed a dream Test debut, tormenting India’s batsmen and taking three wickets and a catch in the deep, stealing the headlines from Ross Taylor, who was playing his 100th Test.

Ajinkya Rahane will resume on Saturday on 38 while the recalled Rishabh Pant will be with him on 10.

“From a team perspective we are in a pretty strong position,” Jamieson told reporters. “The game is quite advanced and we are pretty happy with where it is.

“From my experience playing here the (wicket) usually holds that pace and bounce for a couple of days so I am sure there will still be a little bit tomorrow to help us and I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”

The 2.03m tall Jamieson, who dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara (11) and the world’s top-ranked Test batsmen Virat Kohli (two) before lunch, grabbed his third wicket when Hanuma Vihari edged the first ball after the mid-session drinks break to wicketkeeper BJ Watling.

Vihari’s dismissal for seven reduced India to 101-5.

Jamieson also held a steepling catch at fine leg from a mistimed hook shot by opener Mayank Agarwal (34) off Trent Boult, who had dropped a difficult caught and bowled chance on the previous delivery.

“As a batsman you never felt like you were completely in,” Agarwal said of the testing conditions and the pressure New Zealand’s bowlers were able to exert on their lineup.

“They bowled good areas and kept testing us and didn’t give us anything loose.

“Even after lunch it was doing a little bit.”

Jamieson was only making his Test debut because Neil Wagner withdrew from the squad as he awaited the birth of his first child. Wagner confirmed on social media that his daughter had been born on Wednesday.

Tim Southee had bowled Prithvi Shaw for 16 early in the first session after Kane Williamson had won the toss and chosen to field on a green pitch.

Taylor became the first cricketer to play 100 matches in all three formats and just the fourth New Zealander to achieve the 100-game milestone in Tests.
