On the second day of first test match, New Zealand bowled out India for 318.
After electing to bat in the historic 500th Test on Thursday, India gave away a solid start as a middle-order collapse saw them reduced to 291 for 9.
Murali Vijay (65), Cheteshwar Pujara (62), and Ravichandran Ashwin (40) were the pick of Indian batsmen, most of whom received a lot of criticism for their poor shot selection.
On the other hand, Kiwis’ decision to name three spinners in their lineup seems to have worked perfectly.
Neil Wagner, Mitchell Santner, and Ish Sodhi bowled a total of 59 overs between themselves and dismissed five of the top order Indian batsmen.
