IND vs NZ: 2nd Test Day 1 Review
India recovered from a mini top-order collapse to reach 221 for four in two extended opening day sessions. Mayank Agarwal was the highlight of the day as he held the fort with wickets tumbling at the other end. While Ajinkya Rahane was supposedly ‘dropped’ due to a niggle, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli failed to worry the scorers. Pujara was clean bowled by Ajaz Patel while Kohli fell to a contentious decision by the third umpire.
Ajaz Patel was by far the best New Zealand bowler, having reduced India from 80 for no loss to 80 for three. Agarwal might sit out when Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are back, but his strokeplay delivered a statement of determination. He put on an 80 runs stand with both Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer. Before the end of the play, Agarwal added another 61 runs with the help of Wriddhiman Saha.
