India vs New Zealand, Highlights, 2nd Test in Christchurch, Day 1, Full Cricket Score: Latham, Blundell steer Kiwis to 63/0 at stumps

12:31 (IST)

It was a long day of Test cricket with match starting 45 minutes late due to wet conditions but we still managed to see 86 overs bowled today. Kiwis go back as the happier side. India on back foot again. And they have a lot to answer tomorrow. There will be many discussions in the Indian dressing room. Visitors will have to do something extraordinary to pull things back in their favour tomorrow. 

For now, we will take your leave. Come back again, for Day 2 coverage, at sharp 4 am (IST). 

12:31 (IST)

And the day belongs to New Zealand. First they bowled India out for a modest score and then the openers have played out the new ball without any damage. India's lead is less than 200 and if their bowlers do not strike early in the morning tomorrow, their chances in this Test will be all but gone.

12:21 (IST)

After 23 overs,New Zealand 63/0 ( Tom Latham 27 , Tom Blundell 29)

That's stumps on Day 1. And all the three sessions today belonged to the hosts. They bundled out visitors for 242 and then Latham and Blundell made sure Kiwis did not lose any wicket till the close of play. India would be very disappointed. Nothing went there way today starting from toss. Kiwis 63/0 in 23 overs in first innngs so far, trail by 179 runs. 

12:15 (IST)

After 22 overs,New Zealand 59/0 ( Tom Latham 26 , Tom Blundell 26)

Bumrah returns to the attack and almost got Latham on two occasions as ball missed his edge once and then the top of off stump. Latham manages to evade the threat in this over. We have one more over left today. 

12:10 (IST)

After 21 overs,New Zealand 57/0 ( Tom Latham 25 , Tom Blundell 25)

Ravindra Jadeja, Left arm orthodox, brought into the attack as close of day's play nears. Blundell defends first three balls very well and then Kohli places a silly point but no damage done. Jadeja starts off with a maiden. The next over should be the last of the day.

12:06 (IST)

After 20 overs,New Zealand 57/0 ( Tom Latham 25 , Tom Blundell 25)

Two beautiful looking boundaries by Latham in this over. Shami is going too fuller in length now. Latham is not leaving any opportunity to score the boundaries. NZ have now surpassed the fifty-run mark as well. 

12:05 (IST)
four

FOUR! Not the ideal delivery to Latham by Shami, fullish and Latham stood and presented the full face of the bat to fetch four runs with a beautiful looking off drive. 

12:03 (IST)
four

FOUR! That is pushed through the covers for four. Timed beautifully from Latham. That boundary helps New Zealand surpass fifty-run mark. 

12:02 (IST)

After 19 overs,New Zealand 49/0 ( Tom Latham 17 , Tom Blundell 25)

Umesh smashed for a boundary off the first ball by Blundell. New Zealand have brought the deficit below 200 runs now with 10 wickets still intact. Kohli has stuck to pace in these 19 overs. Still no sign of spin from the captain.

11:58 (IST)
four

FOUR! Short ball from Umesh and Blundell was waiting for that, he shifts weight on back foot and smashes him for four runs to deep mid-wicket.

Latest Updates, 2nd Test, Day 1 India vs New Zealand: That's stumps on Day 1. And all the three sessions today belonged to the hosts. They bundled out visitors for 242 and then Latham and Blundell made sure Kiwis did not lose any wicket till the close of play. India would be very disappointed. Nothing went there way today starting from toss. Kiwis 63/0 in 23 overs in first innngs so far, trail by 179 runs.

Preview: India will look to bounce back hard when they take on New Zealand in the 2nd Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. New Zealand's meticulous planning systematically dismantled India in the first Test in Basin Reserve and it also meant that Black Caps would go unbeaten in six consecutive series at home.

The sour taste of a 10-wicket loss to New Zealand in the first Test had been a good lesson for India’s cricketers and there was no doubt they would be far more competitive in the second in Christchurch, coach Ravi Shastri said.

The visitors had won their previous seven International Cricket Council World Test Championship matches to lead the standings on 360 points before they were hammered at the Basin Reserve.

Shastri, however, said his side had learned a lot about how New Zealand would bowl to them at Hagley Oval when the game starts on Saturday and the sting of defeat was on their minds as they look to level the two-match series.

“We were outplayed in the first Test but I always believe that a shake-up like that is good. It opens your mindset,” Shastri told reporters in Christchurch on Friday.

“If you have not tasted defeat you can have a closed or fixed mindset. Here, when you see what has happened, it is good, it gives you opportunities to learn.

“You know what New Zealand are doing and what to expect. It’s a good lesson and the boys are up for the challenge.”

Shastri did not confirm the playing XI on Friday but hinted there was some debate over whether Ravindra Jadeja or Ravichandran Ashwin would occupy the spinning all-rounder spot in the side.

A final decision would be made just before the toss on Saturday, although Shastri said that Ashwin’s batting had slipped.

The off-spinner, who has four Test centuries along with his 365 wickets, has not passed 50 since Aug. 2017 and has scored a total of 126 runs in his last 10 matches.

“He is a world-class bowler,” Shastri said. “There is absolutely no doubt about it. But ... he will be disappointed in the way he has batted and he will need to improve that.”

New Zealand pace bowler Trent Boult, who was eyeing a green Hagley Oval wicket on Friday, said the Indians would definitely have learned and adapted after the hosts bogged them down in Wellington.

Boult and his new-ball partner Tim Southee took 14 of the 20 wickets to fall in Wellington and will welcome back Neil Wagner after he missed the first game to attend the birth of his first child.

“We’re definitely expecting them to adapt pretty quickly and be positive coming into this Test match. Their records speak for themselves,” Boult said.

“They’re number one in the world for a reason and that’s solely because they can adapt to any conditions.”
