Today is the second day of the first test match between India and New Zealand (IND vs NZ) being played at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur. Indian batsmen did well on the first day and ended the day with 258 runs for the loss of four wickets. Shubman Gill played an innings of 52 runs. Although the Kiwi bowlers troubled India in the second session of the day, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja, playing their first match, saved the team from disintegration with a century partnership. Iyer had scored a half-century in the debut match itself and returned unbeaten on 75. On the second day, he would like to make his debut memorable by completing a century. At the same time, Jadeja returned unbeaten after scoring 50 runs. His effort will also be to put more and more runs in his account and give a strong score to the team. The Kiwi bowlers would like to stop Team India from scoring big and for this it is necessary that they end the Iyer-Jadeja partnership.
Shubman Gill gave a good start
Shubman Gill gave India a good start in the first session of the first day. After the early dismissal of Mayank Agarwal, he took over the team and scored a half-century. He was out in the second session of the day.
Rahane, Pujara fail again
It was expected that Ajinkya Rahane and vice-captain Cheteshwar Pujara, who were captaining in this match, would score big. Both of them had started well but could not convert them into big innings.
