New Zealand were 152 for one at stumps against India, still trailing their hosts by 166 runs, after a rain-hit second day’s play of the first Test in Kanpur on Friday.

Skipper Kane Williamson on 65 and Tom Latham on 56 were leading a strong reply by the tourists in response to India’s first innings total of 318 when rain stopped play after tea to wash out the final session

The visitors lost opener Martin Guptill earlier in the day but Williamson and Latham’s unbeaten 117-run stand provided a strong reply to India’s first innings total of 318.
