Kiwi bowler landed on ‘dishonest’ in front of Kane Williamson
The New Zealand team is known for its gentleman nature. This team never splashes on the field, nor do the players of this team appear in anger. But on the first day of the Kanpur Test (India vs New Zealand, 1st Test), something happened that everyone was stunned to see. New Zealand spin bowler Ejaz Patel started bowling against Shreyas Iyer which also upset the umpire and he complained to Kiwi captain Kane Williamson.
Talking about left-arm spinner Ejaz Patel who bowled from a negative line against Shreyas Iyer. While bowling from over the wicket, Ejaz Patel continuously bowled towards Shreyas Iyer’s feet. Seeing this line length of Patel, Iyer stopped putting the bat on his balls and he was constantly seen stopping him from the pads. Seeing all this, the ground went to the umpire Kane Williamson and he complained to Ajaz Patel.

In fact, during his negative bowling, Ejaz Patel threw many balls out of the leg side, which the umpire did not give wide. After this, the umpire went to Kane Williamson and he warned that if such bowling continues, then he will give wide to the ball outside the leg side. After this Williamson talked to Ajaz Patel and then this bowler changed his line length. Let us tell you that Ejaz Patel adopted this strategy so that he would not let Shreyas Iyer hit big shots. He was wasting time by bowling like this and at the same time it is also a trick to break the attention of the batsman.
However, this strategy of the Kiwi bowler did not help. Shreyas Iyer hit a brilliant half-century and he along with Ravindra Jadeja made a century partnership for the fifth wicket. Jadeja scored an unbeaten 50 and Iyer was also unbeaten on 75. Shubman Gill also played an excellent innings of 52 runs. By the end of the first day’s play, India scored 258 for 4 wickets. Jameson got 3 successes and Tim Southee got one wicket.
