India vs New Zealand, Highlights, 2nd Test in Christchurch, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Visitors lead by 97 runs in second innings at stumps

11:38 (IST)

What a day of Test cricket we witnessed. As many as 16 wickets fell through the course of the day's play, six of which are Indian. A score of 90/6 doesn't inspire much confidence and unless Vihari and Pant conjure up a magical partnership tomorrow, their chances of levelling the two-Test series look very difficult.Can't wait to see how the day unfolds on Monday. For now, it's a goodbye from us.

11:38 (IST)

Well, India are in a spot of bother here. They have thrown away the advantage as the pendulum has swung towards New Zealand at the fag end of the day. But from New Zealand's point of view, it is good to see Boult bowling at his usual best after being off coloured in the previous few innings. India have to bat out their skins tomorrow to get close to the 200-run mark. 

11:36 (IST)

Cheteshwar Pujara dismissed by bowlers most times in Tests:

9 : Nathan Lyon
7 : James Anderson
4 : Stuart Broad, Josh Hazlewood, Ben Stokes, TRENT BOULT*

There were 16 wickets fell today - the most in a day’s play at this venue.

After 36 overs,India 90/6 ( Hanuma Vihari 5 , Rishabh Pant (W) 1)

Boult rattles the stumps with a vicious inswinger once again, this time dismissing Yadav for 1 with India losing their sixth wicket in the process. Out walks Rishabh Pant at No 8, and he gets off the mark right away with a single. A run and a wicket from the over, and that will be all for today.

India crumble to 90/6 at stumps after yet another batting collapse, with Vihari and Pant batting on 5 and 1 respectively.

BOWLED EM! Boult hits timber once again! This time gets rid of the nightwatchman Umesh Yadav as India lose their sixth wicket with less than 100 on board. Boult thinks it's stumps and prepares to collect his belongings from the umpire, only to be told that there will be a few more deliveries bowled today. IND 89/6

Four off the over, with Vihari collecting his first boundary of the innings with a well-timed cut through the point region off the fourth delivery of the over.

FOUR! A much-needed boundary to lift the Indian spirits after the flurry of wickets. Vihari gets on top of the bounce and cuts this through point. IND 89/5

11:23 (IST)

After 34 overs,India 85/5 ( Umesh Yadav 1 , Hanuma Vihari 1)

Boult delivers a body blow to the visitors by breaching Pujara's defence with a spectacular inswinger, rattling the stumps as the latter's innings comes to an end in the 88th delivery. Vihari walks out to bat next, with India's chances of posting 200 looking bleak now.

OUT! Pujara's undone by a beauty from Boult, as he departs after putting up a stubborn resistance that had given the visitors hope of going past the 200-mark. The ball swung back in sharply, going through the batsman's defence with Pujara attempting to block this. IND 84/5

Latest Updates, 2nd Test, Day 2 India vs New Zealand: Boult rattles the stumps with a vicious inswinger once again, this time dismissing Yadav for 1 with India losing their sixth wicket in the process. Out walks Rishabh Pant at No 8, and he gets off the mark right away with a single.

Day 1 report: Jamieson took five for 45 as New Zealand dismissed India for 242 after tea on day one of the second and final Test on Saturday before consolidating their advantage by reaching the close of play on 63 without loss.

Playing only his second Test after making his debut in the 10-wicket victory in Wellington last week, the tall right-armer wreaked havoc in India’s lower order as the tourists lost their last five wickets for 45 runs after the second break.

Jamieson, enjoying some of the luck that had evaded him earlier in the day, claimed four of those wickets after starting with Cheteshwar Pujara, who had threatened to guide the tourists to a more than competitive total.

Pujara, picking his shots with the care of a player who knew how important his innings would be, ground out a 25th test half century and enjoyed a partnership of 81 with Hanuma Vihari that had India looking comfortable at 194-4 just before tea.

Vihari gloved behind for 55 to bring up the break, however, and Pujara was gone for 54 two overs after the resumption when he abandoned his circumspection and skied an attempted hook that wicketkeeper BJ Watling took with ease.

“It was a wrong time to get out obviously, just before tea,” Vihari told reporters. “I was batting positively, I thought I played one shot too many.

“But that’s the name of the game, sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn’t.”

Jamieson then removed Rishabh Pant, Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja in short order and left Trent Boult to mop up the final wicket by bowling Mohammed Shami for 12.

“It’s a pretty special feeling,” Jamieson said after carrying the ball off the field.

“I think as a bowling unit we did so well and I was lucky to grab a few. At one stage I thought they were probably going to get a few more, (the wicket) wasn’t doing quite as much as it did in Wellington, so to keep them to 240 is pretty good.”

The day started poorly for the tourists when New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and sent his five-pronged seam attack out to bowl on a green track.

Opener Prithvi Shaw provided the first bright moments of the day for the Indian supporters with a quickfire half century in the rain-delayed first session that presented a stark contrast to what was to come from Pujara.

Jamieson dismissed the 20-year-old caught behind for 54, though, and his opening partner Mayank Agarwal (7) was also sent back before the first break.

Skipper Virat Kohli’s batting woes continued as he was trapped plumb in front by Tim Southee for three from the first ball he faced after lunch to take his tally to a paltry 24 from his three innings in the series.

New Zealand openers Tom Latham, who was unbeaten on 27, and Tom Blundell (29 not out) successfully negotiated 23 overs until stumps and will resume on Sunday looking to cut deep into India’s 179-run lead.
