Jasprit Bumrah to Tom Blundell. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Sharma. New Zealand win! Terrific display from the hosts to get the lead in the series and break the table toppers unbeaten run. Their bowling was the stand out for me, such a tight line and length they bowled to a plan that worked every time. They go into the next game with a series win on their minds, even if they don't come out with it, they will be very happy to beat the number one ranked test side.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Mohammed Shami. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Blundell. India all out for 165! What a morning for New Zealand and Tim Southee, Shami was just going for it at the end there, eventually a booming drive goes to a fielder and Southee gets his fourth. Quality bowling display from New Zealand, they didn't put a foot wrong, they go into their innings full of confidence as they look to get a big first innings lead.

OUT! Caught. Kyle Jamieson to Ishant Sharma. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Watling. Wicket! Sharma out! He nicks one to Watling and Jamieson gets his fourth, such an impressive debut, he will be eager for that fifth wicket. New Zealand need one more wicket to get India all out cheaply and put pressure on India going into New Zealand's innings.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Mohammed Shami. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Shami showing his quality with the bat here, he's waited for a bad ball from Southee and he's let his hands go at this shorter ball. Shami finds the gap perfectly on the on-side to get his third boundary in three overs.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Mohammed Shami. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Four more, what an over this has been, four over the slip cordon, a dropped catch and now a well timed flick down the ground from Shami for four.

Williamson with the drop! He gets under the big swirling ball, he's set, but he lets it run through his fingers. Big chance to get the ninth wicket, Williamson should be taking that.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Mohammed Shami. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Another edge for four, I wonder how many runs have been scored through edges this innings? A couple of boundaries today, and a good few yesterday which has helped increase their total.

APPEAL! Tim Southee to Ishant Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Watling, appeal made for Caught. Close!

India eight down now, Southee looking in great touch early on day two.

FOUR! Trent Boult to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past deep backward point for 4 runs. Rahane swings hard at this wide ball from Boult, he gets enough on it for it to fly over the in-field for four. A very intriguing battle ahead here, Rahane stuck with Sharma at the other end, will he trust the seam bowler to see out the pace bowlers, or will he try and get the runs himself with more expansive shots.

OUT! Bowled. Tim Southee to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Ashwin gone! What a ball from Southee, perfect length, bit of late swing away from the batter, for any batsman that would've been tricky to keep out, let alone a bowler. And just like that the momentum is with New Zealand as they look to bowl India out cheaply.
58.2
W
OUT! Run Out. Tim Southee to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to point, direct hit by Patel. Pant out! A huge mix up between Rahane and Pant, Pant wants the one, but Pant is slow off the mark, Patel with a good pick-up and with one stump to aim at he gets the direct hit. What are these two thinking, India need to hold on to their wickets and get a partnership going to put pressure on the home side, instead they let New Zealand in with a comical dismissal.

Start of India Innings. Welcome to the first test of this two match series between New Zealand and India, the first of which is taking place at Wellington. What a test series we have in store, two of the best sides in the world batting in out in the World Test Championship. So far in the tournament, India are at the top of the tree, winning seven out of seven. New Zealand are stuck in mid-table after a disappointing series with Australia. New Zealand have a great chance of rectifying those defeats with a series win against India, that's easier said than done though, India have been so dominant of late, the only big thing that sways towards New Zealand winning this series is the fact they are at home. The start of day one is close, will New Zealand be able to break the unbeaten India? We will find out over the next few days.

OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Trent Boult. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Pant. Wicket! The Boult cameo ends after a short ball cramps him for room giving him no chance to defend it well. New Zealand end the innings with 348, a really good score and a big lead of 183 which puts massive pressure on the two openers. India had a great start to the session with the wicket of Watling, but after that flurry they didn't bowl to the best of their ability. New Zealand will take that, lots of work to do from their bowlers though with this pitch flattening out.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Ajaz Patel. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Just past leg-stump for four, Bumrah has really struggled this innings and that four is the perfect summary of how bad his bowling has been. Patel close to chopping on, bit of luck for the number 10.

Gone for 44, he holes out to Vihari who takes the somple catch at long-on. A great innings from him on his debut, sadly he couldn't get a fifty. Ashwin with the change in angle to round the wicket and since then he has halted the runs. India need two more wickets now.

Interesting to see India open the day with their two openers with the new ball just 6 overs away, maybe Kohli backs them to get a couple of wickets before the new ball, but if they can't find those wickets Ashwin might have to come on and that could cause them all sorts of problems.

First ball of the day and India get off to the perfect start. Watling out playing at a short one that he would leave at any other point of the game. Watling will be kicking himself with that one, normally he is so patient at the crease, a lapse in concentration has cost him his wicket.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to BJ Watling. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Back to back fours, Watling with an outside edge down to third man for four, runs are crucial to both teams, so New Zealand will be happy with them no matter how they come. And now they are coming off because the sun has gone down which means stumps on day two. New Zealand will be fairly happy with this, but after the start they made with Williamson and Taylor they will be kicking themselves with the three quick wickets they conceded. India have clawed their way back into this, some good bowling at the end from Sharma, Shami and Ashwin is the reason for this. Good morning, we're back in Wellington for day three of the first test. After a great start to yesterday New Zealand lost their grip on the game a little bit with three quick wickets going. Taylor and Williamson gave them a lead at two down then they and Nicholls departed leaving New Zealand on 216 for 5. Shami, Sharma and Ashwin all key to the change in momentum for India, lots of work still to be done by them though with New Zealand still in the driving seat.

Runs : 4 Bowler: Kyle Jamieson Wickets : 0
Good morning and welcome to the fourth day in Wellington. New Zealand are closing in on a dominant win against the World Test Championship leaders with the visitors struggling on 144 for 4 in their second innings. They still trail the hosts by 39 runs, but with time in favour of the home side and the pitch getting better and better to bat on it will be hard for India to really set up a good total with only 2 more recognised batters left to come. It's all set up for day four, it should be a thrilling day of test match cricket.
Over 65. 4 runs. Bowler: Kyle Jamieson. India: 4-144(rr 2.22)

FOUR! Kyle Jamieson to Hanuma Vihari. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Cut away by Vihari and that four was the last ball of the day, India will go into day four on 144 for 4 after a good New Zealand bowling display got them in a tangle. Great bowling so far from New Zealand which has kept India at bay, with players like Kohli and Pujara runs can be scored at a good rate, but the bowling has been to a plan that has worked. Lots of work for India to do tomorrow, time favours the home side in this one.

Like I said before it wasn't the best ball from Southee, but the way he had been hitting a consistent line and length made Agarwal go after the fuller ball.

Some Wagner-esque bowling from Southee, it seemed to be working, but Agarwal pulls hard at one and gets four for his troubles. One thing that's been impressive from New Zealand is the aggressive field they have set India throughout the innings, they've not given the batsmen much room for error and no easy runs, and because of that New Zealand are in the driving seat.

Cracking bouncer from Jamieson, gets Pujara in all sorts of trouble, he ends up fending at it, dropping his hands and letting it hit his arm guard. A big should from the Kiwi's they think they have him, but the umpire doesn't give it. They review, it's very close, it might've hit the glove, but there isn't enough evidence to overturn the decision.

OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Prithvi Shaw. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to square leg, by Latham. Wicket! Big early wicket for New Zealand, India looked good in the early stages of this innings but Shaw lets New Zealand in. I think this one cramped him up, he wanted to get it to third man, but he splices the ball to square leg who takes a good diving catch. India under pressure early in this innings now.
