Kanpur: Dominating against Indian bowling, New Zealand has scored 152 runs with a loss of its major batsman Martin Guptil at tea on the Day 2 in the first Test of the three-match series at the Green Park in Kanpur on Friday.

Kane Willamson and Tom Latham were at the crease scoring 65 and 56 runs respectively. Guptil made 21 runs before being given lbw on Umesh Yadav's delivery.

Willamson has scored 65 runs hitting seven boundaries while Lotham has hit five fours so far.

New Zealand is trailing by 166 runs.

Earlier, Jadeja and Umesh last wicket partnership of 41 runs helped India to reach respectable total of 318 runs on the Day 2.

India lost advantage on Day 1:

  • India frittered away the advantage of winning the toss and batting first on a slow track of the Green Park stadium.
  • At stumps on first day of the first match of three-match Test series, Ravindra Jadeja (16) and Umesh Yadav (8) were at crease.
  • No big partnership was seen except a classy one of 112 runs for second between between Vijay-Pujara.
  • Pujara scored 62 runs at a good strike rate hitting eight fours in 109 balls knock.
  • Vijay had hit 65 runs.
  • Indian captain and Vice-captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane failed to create any impact after being dismissed at scores of 9 and 18 runs respectively.
  • Rohit Sharma, whose selection was a debatable one, was again a disappointment scoring 35 runs.
  • For New Zealand, Mitchell Santer and Trent Boult bagged three wickets each while others including Craig and Sodhi claimed single wicket each.
  • Wanger took two wickets.

The pitch is expected to take huge turn from Day 2.
