India vs New Zealand, 2nd Test Match at Christchurch, Day 2, Highlights: As it Happened
India vs New Zealand 2nd Test Day 2 latest update: WICKET! Boult storms in and goes wide of the crease to bring it back into the right hander and Umesh Yadav's stumps are knocked over. India six down now.

Day 1 Report: After a fantastic debut in the first Test, Kyle Jamieson continued his rich vein of form as he grabbed a five-wicket haul on Saturday to put New Zealand in the box seat on day one of the second Test against India in Christchurch.
Mar 01, 2020 11:34 (IST)

End of play on Day 2 and India finish with a lead of 97 runs and the score at 90/6. The New Zealand bowlers have really put the hosts in driver's seat for a whitewash here. Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari will have their task cut out in the first session on Day 3. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:28 (IST)

WICKET! Boult storms in and goes wide of the crease to bring it back into the right hander and Umesh Yadav's stumps are knocked over. India six down now. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:26 (IST)

Vihari vs Wagner resumes in the second innings and the batsman has made good use of a short wide delivery. Cuts it away four a boundary through covers.

Mar 01, 2020 11:23 (IST)

Vihari and Umesh in the middle now with about five overs to go now. India in all sorts of trouble with Boult and Wagner looking hungry for more wickets. India lead by 92 runs. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:19 (IST)

WICKET! Boult strikes and it's the big one as he castles Pujara. Goes right through his gates and Pujara is gone for 24. India are 84/5. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:14 (IST)

Boult into the attack as Williamson looks to dislodge one more before close of play. Tight over with some probing lines from the left armer. India move on to 77/4. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:09 (IST)

Umesh Yadav comes in as nightwatchman here and picks up a boundary of the thigh pads immediately. He's just about survived the rest of the over from Wagner as New Zealand look for another wicket before stumps. 

Mar 01, 2020 11:06 (IST)

WICKET! Wagner breaks through as Rahane is unable to read the slower bouncer and chops it onto the stumps. Rahane goes for 9 as India lose their fourth. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:59 (IST)

Wagner and Jamieson continue to test the Indian batsmen's short ball technique here. They're at it relentlessly and for now Rahane and Pujara are able to negotiate safely. India move on to 71/3 with the lead at 78. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:51 (IST)

Ouch! This time Jamieson has hit Rahane flush on the helmet. Rahane was through the shot and is having a laugh at the end of it all. But that would have shook him up. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:51 (IST)

Ouch! This time Jamieson has hit Rahane flush on the helmet. Rahane was through the shot and is having a laugh at the end of it all. But that would have shook him up. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:49 (IST)

Wagner continues to look for wickets for New Zealand and is looking particularly unhappy still about the dropped catch a couple of overs ago. One run from the over takes India to 69/3. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:42 (IST)

Rahane picks up a boundary at fine leg with a leg glance to start off the Jamieson over and he ends it with a knock on the helmet. But he's fine and India move five runs further ahead. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:37 (IST)

Dropped! Shocking from everyone! Wagner sets up the short ball field and Rahane obliges with a pull played in the air but Colin de Grandhomme has put down an absolute sitter! Williamson and the rest can't believe it. India's lead is 70 runs. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:33 (IST)

Jamieson back into the attack now and goes through his over pretty quickly with five dots and a single of the last delivery. NZ would love a repeat of his first innings spell right now. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:29 (IST)

Wagner goes through his second over without much ado and is still warming up it would seem as the pace is still not up there. Three runs takes India's lead to 67. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:25 (IST)

Rahane and Pujara pick up a single each from the de Grandhomme over as India move along to 57/3. India lead by 64 runs. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:22 (IST)

Wagner brought into the attack by New Zealand and he's started off with a maiden. Wagner engineered the collapse in the first innings after he got Vihari just on the stroke of tea yesterday. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:17 (IST)

Ajinkya Rahane is the new man in. So far him and Pujara are looking to be cautious, which is what India need at this point. Ideally for India, these two will still be batting come the start of Day 3. 

Mar 01, 2020 10:06 (IST)

OUT! De Grandhomme strikes and Kohli has to go. The Indian skipper is trapped plumb in front of the stumps and the umpire has no hesitation raising the finger. Kohli's poor run of form continues. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:57 (IST)

De Grandhomme and Jamieson continue to chug away nicely here. Meanwhile, the duo of Kohli and Pujara are looking well set. India will want them to bat on for as long as they can. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:47 (IST)

TWO FOURS! Jamieson comes into the attack now and Kohli takes him on early. Slightly wide and Kohli caresses it towards the sweeper cover region, beating the in field and collecting a boundary. Follows that with a well-directed shot towards third man. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:38 (IST)

Kohli and Pujara have quite the task on their hands now. The openers departing cheaply was far from ideal and these two will now have to rebuild the innings. Kohli gets off the mark with a stylish push through the leg side that goes for four. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:27 (IST)

OUT! Southee strikes now and it is Shaw who has to depart. He ends up spooning an easy catch to Tom Latham after getting caught on the back foot by a well-directed bouncer and India are two down. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:16 (IST)

Boult and Southee continue to ask a few questions of the batsmen. So far, Shaw and Pujara have stood up well to these two. The challenge will be to see this period through then look to attack when the ball gets older and the pitch does less. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:08 (IST)

FOUR! Shaw gets another boundary, this time hitting Boult towards the third man area. It will be interesting to see his approach given India have already lost a wicket early. 

Mar 01, 2020 09:01 (IST)

Exactly what India didn't need. An early wicket falls. 

Mar 01, 2020 08:54 (IST)

FOUR! Southee pitches one up but it was a half-volley and Shaw effortlessly drives him straight down the ground for a boundary. Good start for India as 6 come off the first over. 

Mar 01, 2020 08:51 (IST)

Hello and welcome back for the second innings. Shaw and Agarwal are out in the middle for India, Southee will bowl the first over. India will need to be patient at first whereas New Zealand will want quick wickets. 

Mar 01, 2020 08:31 (IST)

Jamieson has been cleared, thankfully and continues to play. However he falls just short of his 50, top edging one off Shami that Pant catches after covering a fair bit of ground towards his left! That's the end of the innings then and New Zealand have posted 235, meaning India lead by 7 runs going into the second innings.

New Zealand, who won the crucial toss with an inviting green pitch on offer, were 63 without loss when stumps were drawn after having skittled India out for 242.

Tom Blundell was on 29 with Tom Latham on 27.

Jamieson, who has his sights on becoming established as an all-rounder, grabbed the headlines on debut with four wickets and a sparking 44 runs in New Zealanda's 10-wicket first Test victory in Wellington.

He backed that up in Christchurch with five for 45 to blunt a promising start by India in the second Test.

Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma Vihari all collected half centuries for India to show that the green wicket was not as threatening as expected.

Shaw was in sparkling form at the top of the innings with 54 off 64 deliveries while Pujara and Vihari played more patient roles.

Pujara faced 140 balls for his 54 while Vihari's 55 took 70 deliveries but with most of his runs coming in a late flurry of boundaries.

Captain Virat Kohli again fell cheaply and there was little life in the tail.

The last six wickets produced only 48 runs with 26 of them from Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah for the final wicket.

After Mayank Agarwal fell early, Shaw and Pujara put on 50 for the second wicket before the 2.03-metre (6ft 8in) Jamieson struck for the first time when he found the edge of Shaw's bat and a leaping Latham snared the catch at second slip.

Enter Kohli and a chance for the master batsman to play a captain's knock as India battle to save themselves from a whitewash in the two-Test series.

Instead his disappointing tour continued and he was out for three when a Tim Southee outswinger seamed back and trapped him lbw.

It followed scores of 19 and two in the first Test and from 10 innings across all three formats on tour against the Black Caps, Kohli has totalled only 204 runs.

Southee followed with the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane for seven before Pujara and Vihari stabilised the innings in an 81-run stand for the fifth wicket.

Wagner bagged Vihari with the last ball before tea and Jamieson took Pujara soon after the resumption before racing through the lower order to remove Rishabh Pant (12), Ravindra Jadeja (nine) and Umesh Yadav (nought).

Trent Boult ended Shami's 16-run cameo to finish off the innings leaving New Zealand 23 overs to bat before stumps.
