India vs New Zealand 1st test 2020 1st day highlights – It was a shaky start by India in the morning session after New Zealand won the toss and opted to bowl first. It was Kyle Jamieson who controlled the proceedings for the hosts while India’s inexperienced openers continued to struggle.

Tim Southee was the one who started to bring early in roads for the Indian batsmen. Southee picked up Prithvi Shaw for just 16 runs and this wicket triggered an unhealthy collapse in the Indian innings.

The New Zealand bowlers used the windy conditions to good effect. Kyle Jamieson picked up his first wicket in form of Cheteshwar Pujara. India’s number 3 couldn’t read that peach of a delivery from Jamieson. Pujara was out for just 11 runs.

Rahane and Agarwal tried to steady the Indian innings but could only add 40 runs to the team’s total. Mayank Agarwal was the batsman who looked comfortable other than Rahane. But just like the ODI series, Agarwal wasted his start. He couldn’t convert that start into a big one and in the end he gave his wicket away. Agarwal scored 35 runs.

But before this shocking batting performance, India’s selection also had some issues in the first test match. Rishabh Pant, who was been ignored for the limited overs series had suddenly been favoured in the place of India’s regular keeper, Wriddhiman Saha.

Now the only thing left to seen, will Pant make the most of his chances? Or will it be the same old story again? Currently, Rishabh Pant is batting on 10 runs with Ajinkya Rahane, who was unbeaten on 38 runs.

India has scored 122 runs for the loss of five wickets. Now, if India wants to build a healthy 1st innings total, then on the second day, Rahane and Pant will have to hold the key for India’s fortunes.
