When Axar Patel was dismissed, India ran the risk of being skittled out before the Lunch break. However, Ravi Ashwin guided the side to the interval in the company of Umesh Yadav. Though the tail couldn't wag much on the other side of the meal break as India were bowled out for 345. New Zealand have blunted India's new-ball merchants well so far, notwithstanding a couple of lbw shouts. In fact, DRS came to Tom Latham's rescue after he was given out on-field despite a faint inside edge onto the pad.
Openers on their way. Tom Latham and Will Young to begin the reply to India's 345. Follow live in NZ on @skysportnz & @SENZ_Radio with live scoring | https://t.co/yGSlW6a2d5 #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/GtI2rYraOW— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 26, 2021
