    WICKET

16:51 (IST)

STUMPS: And it's stumps on Day 2. New Zealand finishing the day on 128/7, trailing India by 188 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar stars with a five-wicket haul for India

16:42 (IST)

Jeetan Patel connects this time and gets a boundary

16:42 (IST)

Oh so close! Bhuvneshwar bowled an out-swinger and Jeetan Patel went after it. The ball missing the outside edge by a whisker

16:40 (IST)

WICKET: Bhuvi takes another one. Wickets off back to back deliveries, this time it is Matt Henry, New Zealand in trouble at 122/7

16:39 (IST)

WICKET: Bhuvneshwar Kumar strikes again, this time it is Santner

16:36 (IST)

Lights are on at the Eden Gardens as Santner and Watling battle it out in the middle for New Zealand 

16:24 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar strikes immediately after play resumes, removes the kiwi skipper Ross Taylor

13:35 (IST)

RAIN: The covers are on and the players are coming off the field.

13:32 (IST)

WICKET: Jadeja breaks the partnership. Slides that into Ronchi who misses it completely and is trapped in front. Ronchi is out for 35 and New Zealand are now 85/4

13:30 (IST)

Another boundary for Luke Ronchi. A nice drive through the covers region

13:11 (IST)

And that's played very late by Ross Taylor. Gets a boundary and that also brings up the fifty-run stand between him and Luke Ronchi

13:06 (IST)

That's a close shout. Jadeja looped that one in the air and it struck Ronchi in front. Umpire Rod Tucker suggesting it would have missed the leg-stump to the bowler 

13:04 (IST)

The Kiwis taking the attack to India's premier bowler, Ross Taylor hits two back to back boundaries off R Ashwin. It's a costly start to the spell for the offie

13:02 (IST)

Ashwin is introduced into the attack and Ronchi opens the face of the bat outside off-stump to help that to the boundary

12:56 (IST)

DROPPED! Luke Ronchi cuts that hard off Shami but Gambhir was not able to pluck that. It went very quickly to Gambhir who was stationed at short point

12:44 (IST)

That's a great shot by Luke Ronchi, straight down the ground for a boundary. Ronchi and skipper Ross Taylor fighting back after Indian pacers made early inroads

12:23 (IST)

WICKET: Bhuvneshwar Kumar strikes again, breaches the defence on Henry Nicholls to give India their third wicket. New Zealand in big trouble now at 23/3

11:38 (IST)

LUNCH: New Zealand 21/2 at lunch on Day 2, trail India (316) by 295 runs. Taylor 2*, Nicholls 1*

11:28 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar castled Martin Guptill (13) after Mohammed Shami removed Tom Latham (1).

11:18 (IST)

 WICKET! Shami gets the breakthrough, Latham departs for 1. NZ 14/1, trail India (316) by 302 runs

10:58 (IST)

ALL OUT! New Zealand bowl India out for 316 on Day 2. Saha 54*, Matt Henry 3/46

10:43 (IST)

FIFTY! Wriddhiman Saha brings up his third Test fifty with a six off Santner. India 304/9

10:33 (IST)

WICKET! Santner removes Bhuvneshwar for 5 runs. India 281/9

10:23 (IST)

FOUR! Saha comes forward and lofts it inside-out over the covers. Excellent use of the feat by him.

10:20 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the new man at the crease. Can India score 300 plus against the Kiwis?

10:17 (IST)

WICKET! Wagner ends Jadeja's stay at 14. India 272/8

09:44 (IST)

250 comes up for India with a boundary from Wriddhiman Saha.

Saha 25*, Jadeja 2*

09:38 (IST)
09:38 (IST)
08:39 (IST)

For the Kiwis, it was a tale of two comeback men as first 24-year-old Henry (3/35), who had replaced their pace spearhead Tim Southee created quite a flutter by removing both the openers -- Shikhar Dhawan (1) and Murali Vijay (9).

LIVE SCORECARD:

Day 1, round-up: India's vaunted batting line-up failed to recover from the early blows dealt by New Zealand's concerted bowling effort and wobbled to 239 for 7 on the opening day.

Barring Cheteshwar Pujara (87) and Ajinkya Rahane (77), none of the batsmen came good after skipper Virat Kohli opted to bat on the relaid pitch of the historic Eden Gardens stadium, hosting India's 250th home Test.
