IND vs NZ 1st Test, Day 1 Stumps: Ravindra Jadeja, Shreyas Iyer fifties dominate Kiwis, put India in control; IND 258/4

India Won the Toss opted to bat first: After opting to bat first on a flat surface in Kanpur, India suffered an early blow with Mayank Agarwal departing in the 8th over. But Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill steadied the innings with a 61-run stand.

This was the time when New Zealand launched a comeback bid, taking three wickets for 63 runs. Kyle Jamieson bagged two in this session while Tim Southee dismissed Pujara. But a dominant performance from Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer meant, India took the honours on Day 1.

For Shreyas Iyer, who may not have a place in the XI when Virat Kohli returns to the side in the 2nd Tets, made most of his opportunity. His patient 75-run knock off 136 deliveries gave India a middle-order solidity that Team India missed. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara failed to live up to the expectations.

But a young Iyer carried on in the two’s absence on the crease. His matured shot selection and only going after the loose deliveries besides targeting New Zealand spinners helped India cruise to 258/4 at end of Day 1. Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten on 75 while Jadeja remained not out on 50 while Kyle Jamieson returned with 3/47.

India Playing XI 1st Test: Shreyas Iyer in, India ready to…

Despite of India being under-strength, World Champion New Zealand has a huge challenge at their hands – Check why?

  • New Zealand hasn’t won a test in India since 1988
  • Has never won a test series in India
  • New Zealand have won just two of the 34 tests they’ve played in India.

IND NZ Kanpur Test – How will India cope without Virat, Rohit, Rahul?  India is expected to enter the contest with confidence having beaten New Zealand 3-0 in the recently-concluded T20I series, but an injury to KL Rahul has now meant that the team will be without the services of three top-class batsmen in Rahul, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Kohli and Rohit have been rested with an eye on their workload in recent times. In the first Test, Ajinkya Rahane will be leading the side in Kohli’s absence and with Rahul now missing, it will be all about Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara rising to the challenge in the middle-order.

Challenges for Indian Batting

  • Other than Pujara, Rahane, Mayank Agarwal – No batsman has played 10 test matches
  • Mayank & Shubman both returning from injuries & will open for India
  • Shreyas Iyer to debut but hasn’t even played longer format in domestic cricket in last 2 years
  • Rahane short of runs – short of confidence
  • Pujara hasn’t scored a big one since 2019

IND vs NZ LIVE Score:

Ind vs NZ 1st Test: India has also given rest to the likes of Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami – this means India will be on park with their regular pacers as well.

The spin department is well taken care of as Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja are all available for selection.

Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav are expected to be the first choice pacers, looking at the experience they have and Kanpur wicket is also expected to offer some reverse swing as the game progresses on.

New Zealand Looking Strong: Coming to New Zealand, Kane Williamson will mark a return in the Test series, having taken a break from the T20Is. Pacer Trent Boult would not be available for selection, but the pace bowling department is taken care of with Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, and Neil Wagner.

Ind vs NZ 1st Test LIVE – IND NZ Kanpur Test: One needs to see how spinners Ajaz Patel, Rachin Ravindra, and Mitchell Santner perform in the series as the heavy workload will fall on their shoulders looking at how Indian pitches deteriorate as the Test progresses.

Likely Playing XI
India: 1 Mayank Agarwal, 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Cheteshwar Pujara, 4 Ajinkya Rahane (capt), 5 Shreyas Iyer, 6 Ravindra Jadeja, 7 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 8 R Ashwin, 9 Axar Patel, 10 Ishant Sharma 11. Mohammed Siraj OR Umesh Yadav

New Zealand: 1 Tom Latham, 2 Will Young, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Henry Nicholls, 6 Tom Blundell (wk), 7 Mitchell Santner/Kyle Jamieson, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Neil Wagner, 10 Will Somerville, 11 Ajaz Patel.
