Commentary (New Zealand innings)

Stupendous bowling performance by India to bundle out New Zealand cheaply! Their spinners were too hot to handle for the Kiwis as the duo of Ashwin and Ojha hunted down 9 wickets between them. Franklin (43*) was the only batsman who looked at ease but he ran out of partners eventually. INDIA HAVE ENFORCED THE FOLLOW-ON! With the lead of 279 runs in the pocket, the hosts would be hoping for another excellent show by their spinners and achieve an innings defeat. Join us in a while for the post lunch session...

Pitch - It is very hot there and sun is out. Lots of footmarks on the wicket and there will be sharp turn for the spinners. The pitch will have variable bounce too and the fast bowlers can also play a part. Big challenge for New Zealand!

"The play will begin at 10.30 and a minimum of 83 overs will be bowled today. Lunch at 12pm Tea at 2.40pm. Play can be extended till 5.30pm!" tweets BCCI.

Update 0955 IST - Umpire Steve Davis is satisfied with the work that has been put in by the groundsmen and informs that the match will start at 1030 IST. Also adds that, the match can be extended by half-an-hour, i.e. 1730 IST! 83 overs to be bowled.

There is no problem with the outfield and the umpires will be out in a few minutes to inspect the conditions. Stay tuned for further updates...

The covers are coming off and the groundsmen are busy getting the field ready for play. Whatever little drizzle was there has stopped and Ravi Shastri (on air) reckons that the match could get underway in 45-50 minutes.

Hello and a warm welcome to all our viewers and thank you for tuning in to the coverage of the third day of the first Test match. Like yesterday, the ground is covered in anticipation of some rain, however, it is drizzling just a bit. So, the start has been delayed once again. Stay tuned for further updates...

Day 3, first session...

That's it from us for today. Do join us for the Day 3 action tomorrow. Good bye.

The day belonged to India surely. They put up 438 on the board with Cheteshwar Pujara reaching a career best 159. MS Dhoni played a handy knock as well. His skillful captaincy reaped dividends when Pragyan Ojha was introduced in the 8th over itself and took the wicket of Brendon McCullum. Ravichandran Ashwin was then brought on to bowl in tandem and he took the wicket of Guptill off his first ball. The Kiwis lost two quick wickets after that. There was a gritty partnership between Franklin and Williamson but the latter threw his wicket away by playing a rash shot towards the end of the day. From here on, New Zealand would only hope to avoid the follow-on.

Commentary (India innings)

New Zealand have done well in the afternoon session to get India all out. 67/5 in 26.3 overs after lunch and the hosts will be disappointed not to cross the 500-run mark. Jeetan Patel was the most successful bowler with a four-wicket haul and Trent Boult also impressed with his three-for. The star for India with the bat was of course Cheteshwar Pujara and his partnerships with Dhoni and Kohli were very crucial. India will hope for a good start with the new ball, while New Zealand have to bat well initially. Join us in a while...

Day 2, second session...

Interesting stat - This is the 10th time an Indian batsman has registered a 150-plus score in the 1st innings batting at number 3.

Fine session for India! However, they scored just 64 runs in the 21 overs bowled and didn't allow the opposition to take any wicket. The going was slow initially as the batsmen were watchful but once they settled in, the runs started to flow. Cheteshwar Pujara is looking rock solid on 151 and along with skipper Dhoni (61), he is amidst a 111-run stand. The NZ bowling was average as they failed to utilize the overcast conditions to their advantage. Signs are ominous for the Kiwis as expect India to up the scoring ante after the break.

The players are making their way out in the middle. Pujara (119) and Dhoni (29) are the overnight batsmen. Trent Boult [16-2-63-2] to start off with the proceedings from the Visaka End. Here we go...

Right then, the anticipated rain has not arrived and the groundsmen are slowly removing the covers. We will get underway any time soon. Stay tuned...

Not a pleasant news first up, it is drizzling a bit and the big blue covers are out on the field. There are a few rain clouds hovering over the stadium and the groundsmen are expecting some more rain. The umpires, Steve Davis and Ian Gould are out in the middle inspecting the conditions. It seems we are in for a delayed start. Stay tuned for latest updates...

Sanjay Manjrekar is very pleased with the performance of Cheteshwar Pujara. He tweeted a while ago, "Amongst the noise of pop music there will still emerge a pure young classical singer..Cheteshwar is a bit like that in modern cricket!"

Pitch - There are a few footmarks already on the wicket but it is still a good one for batting.

Still unbeaten on 119, Pujara would be hoping to bat as long as possible with the lower-order and help India post a big first innings total. New Zealand, on the other hand, would look to exploit the overcast conditions with the 7-over old new ball and bowl out India quickly. It promises to be another exciting day of cricket...

Warm welcome to all our viewers and thank you for tuning in to the coverage of the second day of the first Test. Yesterday, belonged to only one man, in fact a young man from Saurashtra, Cheteshwar Pujara, who lived up to the hype surrounding him and notched up his maiden Test ton. His innings was full of classy shots, solid forward defense and some excellent back foot punches through covers. His partnership with Virat Kohli was just the glimpse of what we will see more and more in near future for India.

Day 2, first session...

That's it from all of us here. Do join us for the coverage of day 2 tomorrow. Till then, good bye and take care.

India have done well to post 307/5 on day 1. Cheteshwar Pujara led the way with a brilliant maiden century. After getting a good start, the openers departed in quick succession, Tendulkar too didn't last long. The youngsters, Pujara and Kohli, took over the reins and added 125 for the 4th wicket to help India rebuild. After the departures of Kohli and Raina, Dhoni and Pujara put on an unbeaten 47-run stand and made sure that there were no more slip-ups. For New Zealand, Martin and Boult bowled with great heart but didn't have the wickets to show against their name. The Kiwis would be looking to get early wickets tomorrow morning, while the Indians would be looking to post a sizable total.

Stupendous bowling performance by India to bundle out New Zealand cheaply! Their spinners were too hot to handle for the Kiwis as the duo of Ashwin and Ojha hunted down 9 wickets between them. Franklin (43*) was the only batsman who looked at ease but he ran out of partners eventually. INDIA HAVE ENFORCED THE FOLLOW-ON! With the lead of 279 runs in the pocket, the hosts would be hoping for another excellent show by their spinners and achieve an innings defeat. Join us in a while for the post lunch session...

Slight hold up in play. The cameraman behind is creating an issue. Chris Martin runs in, and there is another distraction! One of the groundsman was walking across the sight-screen. Finally, play to begin!

Play is about to start! The Indian openers, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir are out in the middle. With the new ball, it will be Chris Martin for the Kiwis.

New Zealand - Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Daniel Flynn, Ross Taylor(C), Kane Williamson, James Franklin, Kruger van Wyk(WK), Doug Bracewell, Trent Boult, Jeetan Patel, Chris Martin.

India - Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(WK/C), Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav, Pragyan Ojha.

Toss - MS Dhoni has won the toss and INDIA WILL BAT FIRST! He informs that Badrinath, Ishant Sharma, Piyush Chawla and Ajinkya Rahane miss out on this game. Ross Taylor says that Chris Martin, James Franklin and Jeetan Patel will feature in the playing XI.

Pitch report - Sourav Ganguly is doing the pitch report. He informs that it is very dry and there is not much of grass on the wicket, contrary to earlier reports. A lot of cracks are visible on the pitch. Hence, the team winning the toss, should bat first.

India are playing without VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid for the first time in 16 years in Tests. A very tough challenge for the side from now.

Hello all and welcome to the first of the two-Test match series between India and New Zealand at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. The Kiwis are coming off a Test series loss in the Caribbean and would look to adjust well to the alien conditions. For India, their middle-order leaves a gaping hole with the retirement of VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid. They look a mediocre Test side with the absence of these two Test stalwarts. Sachin Tendulkar will have to take the burden of the middle-order work.

Welcome back for the evening session. Pujara and Kohli are the two batsmen at the crease. Jeetan Patel will start off proceedings for the Kiwis!

At tea on day 1, India are 182/3. Again a mixed session for both the teams as India managed 85 runs but they scored them at a slow pace.

Right then, the players are out in the middle. van Wyk and Franklin are the overnight batsmen. Zaheer Khan will start proceedings. Here we go...

Pitch - It is very hot there and sun is out. Lots of footmarks on the wicket and there will be sharp turn for the spinners. The pitch will have variable bounce too and the fast bowlers can also play a part. Big challenge for New Zealand!

"The play will begin at 10.30 and a minimum of 83 overs will be bowled today. Lunch at 12pm Tea at 2.40pm. Play can be extended till 5.30pm!" tweets BCCI.

Update 0955 IST - Umpire Steve Davis is satisfied with the work that has been put in by the groundsmen and informs that the match will start at 1030 IST. Also adds that, the match can be extended by half-an-hour, i.e. 1730 IST! 83 overs to be bowled.

There is no problem with the outfield and the umpires will be out in a few minutes to inspect the conditions. Stay tuned for further updates...

The covers are coming off and the groundsmen are busy getting the field ready for play. Whatever little drizzle was there has stopped and Ravi Shastri (on air) reckons that the match could get underway in 45-50 minutes.

Hello and a warm welcome to all our viewers and thank you for tuning in to the coverage of the third day of the first Test match. Like yesterday, the ground is covered in anticipation of some rain, however, it is drizzling just a bit. So, the start has been delayed once again. Stay tuned for further updates...

Day 3, first session...

That's it from us for today. Do join us for the Day 3 action tomorrow. Good bye.

The day belonged to India surely. They put up 438 on the board with Cheteshwar Pujara reaching a career best 159. MS Dhoni played a handy knock as well. His skillful captaincy reaped dividends when Pragyan Ojha was introduced in the 8th over itself and took the wicket of Brendon McCullum. Ravichandran Ashwin was then brought on to bowl in tandem and he took the wicket of Guptill off his first ball. The Kiwis lost two quick wickets after that. There was a gritty partnership between Franklin and Williamson but the latter threw his wicket away by playing a rash shot towards the end of the day. From here on, New Zealand would only hope to avoid the follow-on.
