Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult Give Kiwis Day 1


India wobbled from 154/1 to 291/9 on Day 1 of 1st Test against New Zealand at Kanpur today. Mitchell Santner and Trent Boult picked up 3 wickets each, as the Kiwi bowlers rocked India’s party after the hosts were seated comfortably in the driver’s seat on 105/1 at lunch. Ravindra Jadeja is still there in the middle, and Indians would be hopeful of pushing for a score of atleast 330 tomorrow morning.

Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara hand India early advantage

Day 1 had ‘India’ written all over it in most of the first and second sessions of play. K L Rahul began aggressively but was foxed by Mitchell Santner early in the day. Pujara and Vijay then constructed an artistic 112 run-stand for the 3rd wicket and gave India the master control button for the Test match. Both the right handers scored useful half centuries before the Kiwi bowlers realized that they were missing a trick or two.

Mitchell Santner and Trent Boult turn it around for New Zealand

If the first 1.5 sessions had belonged to India, the next 1.5 went to New Zealand! And it was all because of the well thought-out and disciplined bowling performance from Mitchell Santner and Trent Boult. To an extent, they may have been the beneficiaries of the effect that Neil Wagner’s reverse swinging deliveries had on the minds of the Indian batsmen, on the dusty Green Park track. Wickets fell in a a heap, following Pujara’s dismissal for a well made 62. Barring the resistance offered by a 52-run stand for the 6th wicket between Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin, India pretty much fell apart in the fading hours of the day’s play.
