India vs New Zealand, 1st Test, Day 2 Live: Team India will start Day 2 of the first Test match against New Zealand at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur on a positive note. Debutant Shreyas Iyer and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja dominated the final session of Day 1 after Kyle Jamieson had troubled India’s top-order with his top-notch bowling. The fast bowler picked three wickets on Day 1 keeping New Zealand in the game. At stumps on Day 1, India were at 258/4 with Iyer and Jadeja batting at 75 and 50 respectively. The duo have added 113 runs for the fifth wicket and will look to extend India’s advantage in the first session on Day 2. On the other hand, apart from Kyle Jamieson, all other New Zealand bowlers looked ineffective in front of Indian batters on the first day. (IND vs NZ LIVE SCORECARD 1st Test Day 2)
