Gill

New Zealand got the breakthrough they wanted when Mayank Agarwal wafted at a tempter in the fourth-stump channel, but Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara have helped India recover nicely. Gill was cautious to begin with but took his chances after getting his eye in as he reaches the half-century landmark. He could have been dismissed if New Zealand had gone for an LBW review. The ball is gripping occasionally but Gill and Pujara have blunted the Kiwi spinners while pouncing on the scoring avenues.
