New Zealand ticked the right boxes after their captain Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bowl first. The Kiwis skittled out the visitors for 242 runs and then finished with 63-0 to dominate the first day of the second Test in Christchurch. Kyle Jamieson, who is playing his second Test match, bowled great line and length to take five wickets.

India got off to a bad start as Mayank Agarwal was dismissed early. Trent Boult was able to get the ball move back into the right-hander and the Indian opener was wrapped in front of the wickets. Prithvi Shaw, who had a disappointing first Test, impressed with his stroke play and played his natural game of attacking anything that was loose.

Great work from New Zealand.

Shaw drove with class and scored his second Test fifty but the prodigy batsman could not convert his score into a substantial score as Tom Latham took a one-handed blinder at second slip. Subsequently, India lost two early wickets of Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane.

Kohli was set up brilliantly by Tim Southee who got the ball to move back into the right-hander after bowling the fourth and fifth stump line. Rahane was also drawn into the drive by Tim Southee and the outside edge was taken by Ross Taylor, at first slip.

Pujara and Hanuma Vihari then got India back into the contest as they added 81 runs for the fifth wicket alliance. However, Vihari was undone by Neil Wagner as he was dismissed at the stroke of tea. Subsequently, India lost their remaining five wickets for only 48 runs in the final session.

New Zealand openers did well to go unscathed as they added 63 runs in the 23 overs. Tom Blundell scored 29 runs whereas Tom Latham scored 27 runs.
