India Vs NZ 1st Test Day 1 of Kanpur Test Highlights

  • Green Park Stadium, Kanpur Pitch Report: Kanpur pitch is expected to support spin bowlers from the second day itself. However, there is expected to be some help for seamers initially because of the moisture in the wicket in Kanpur.
  • India won the toss and elected to bat first here in Kanpur.
  • Agarwal Wicket – 13 (28): Jamieson’s got his first wicket in Asia. Superb bowling, he’s deserved it. Length ball in the corridor, straightens just a touch, and Agarwal, pressing half-forward, plays away from his body, somewhere between a defensive shot and an attempted push into the covers. Thin edge through to Blundell, and Agarwal walks off after a brief chat with his partner – maybe he wasn’t sure he felt the edge? Seemed quite a clear edge, though 21/1
  • Shubman Gill 52 of 93: 29.6 bowled him, this is a terrific delivery from Jamieson! Another in-ducker, his third of the over, but this one is the fullest, on the fuller side of a good length outside off, and just nipping in off the deck. Gill isn’t fully forward to defend this, he’s just landed on his heel when he plays it, and that ends up causing a gap to form between bat and pad. Off the inside edge to disturb the furniture 82/2
  • Pujara 26 of 88: 37.4 got him, huge wicket for Southee! Terrific delivery, fullish and straightening in the corridor. Pujara presses forward to defend, and he gets a thin outside edge that just about carries to Blundell. Williamson had just brought Southee on, and the change works immediately. Pujara usually lets the ball hit his bat when he defends, but on this occasion the bat slightly went towards the ball, with harder hands than usual 106/3
  • Rahane 35 of 63: 49.2 doesn’t get away with it the next ball. Chopped on! He will be bitterly disappointed with that shot. Away from his body, and the ball also keeps a bit low. It was a harmless length ball outside off. Jamieson has bowled much better balls today without any kind of reward. Rahane is disconsolate as he walks off. This has been a good innings, but like so many in recent times, he is gone before making it count 145/4
  • Middle Orders: The two batters have been rotating the strike nicely since the start of third session among Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja on day 1 of first Test in Kanpur

  • Good session for New Zealand, this. Kyle Jamieson picked two while Tim Southee removed Cheteshwar Pujara as New Zealand struck thrice in the second session.
  • With Rahane also back in pavilion, the onus is now on debutant Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja to steer India out of trouble.
  • KL Rahul’s injury shifts focus on to Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane
  • And he’s gone on the very next delivery. Bowled! Jamieson gets his third. Wide outside-off from Jamieson and Rahane atempts the cut, but the ball deflects past the bottom edge onto the stumps. India 145/4 in 49.2 overs
  • Jamieson strikes again! Gill out on 52. Brilliant start yet again from the Kiwi quick. He breaches through Shubman Gill’s defence, targetting the opener’s front foot. Pitches it marginally outside off-stump, drawing Gill to play a front-foot defence; however, Gill finds a huge inside-edge and gets castled.
