Being proactive is the only way to score runs on this particular Kanpur wicket, and Shreyas Iyer and R Ashwin seem to have cracked the code. They joined each other at a delicate scoreline of 51/5, but have looked to score all along as a flurry of boundaries help India arrest the slide. The pitch is such that one can't play possum, otherwise a ball with your name written on it is always round the corner. India would bank on the enterprising duo to build on their 33-run partnership.
