India vs New Zealand 1st Test: Day 2, Session 1: Shreyas hundred powers India amid Southee fifer

In
the
first
session
on
Day
Two,
India
scored
81
runs
and
lost
four
wickets.

The
hosts
ended
the
opening
session
at
339/8
with
Ashwin
and
Umesh
Yadav
unbeaten
on
38
and
4
respectively
here
at
the
Green
Park
Stadium.

Shreyas
completed
his
maiden
ton
but
it
was
Southee
who
rose
to
the
occasion
and
broke
the
121-run
stand
between
the
centurion
and
Ravindra
Jadeja.

However,
Ashwin
played
a
gutsy
knock
to
make
sure
India
remained
firm
at
the
crease
at
the
cusp
of
lunch.

Resuming
the
day
from
258/4,
India
started
off
confidently
but
Southee
drew
the
first
blood
on
Friday
as
he
removed
Ravindra
Jadeja
in
the
87th
over.

However,
Shreyas
continued
his
fine
form
and
hit
his
maiden
Test
ton.
He
became
the
16th
men’s
player
to
score
a
hundred
on
Test
debut
for
India.

Southee,
meanwhile
helped
New
Zealand
comeback
as
he
dimissed
Wriddhiman
Saha
and
Shreyas
in
quick
succession.

The
right-handed
pacer
then
came
back
to
dismiss
Axar
Patel
as
India
got
reduced
to
313/8.

Earlier
on
Day
One,
Shreyas
and
Ravindra
Jadeja
registered
half-centuries
as
India
dominated
on
Thursday
(November
25).

India
ended
Day
One
at
258/4
after
being
down
to
154/4
in
the
second
session.

In
the
third
and
final
session
of
Day
One
on
Thursday,
Shreyas
and
Jadeja
ensured
that
India
do
not
lose
any
more
wickets
before
the
close
of
play.
It
was
controlled
aggression
by
the
two
batsmen
that
placed
the
Kiwis
on
the
backfoot
on
Day
1
despite
some
wickets
in
the
post-lunch
session.
