India Vs New Zealand 2nd test, day 1 highlights

New Zealand 351/4 in 90 overs after the end of day 1
Taylor 151, Ryder 137*

After centuries from Ryder and Taylor, New Zealand got to a commanding position of 351/4 in the second test. Batting first NZ lost 3 early wickets within 10 overs making 23-3 but the two batsmen then took the team to very secured postion after a 271 runs partnership for the third wicket. Taylor got out in 70th over making 151 off 204 balls however Ryder is playing on 131 with Franklin on other end.

Before the start of day 1, MS Dhoni, the Indian skipper was ruled out due to injury. On the other hand, NZ had Taylor back in the team. NZ won the toss and chose to bat first. It seemed it was India's day after Zaheer and Sharma took the wicket of McIntosh, Guptill and How making 23/3. The two centurians then smashed the Indian bowlers all the way.

First Taylor made half century, Ryder followed then Taylor made his 100 which was again followed by Ryder. Harbhajan Singh was then able to take the wicket of Taylor. The day ended with no more wickets then.

  1. I think the hero of the second test was Gautam Gambhir..Goutty batted patiently and sensibly refraining from his attacking nature
