India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live Updates: Not enough movement, says Jamieson
Kyle Jamieson said after the game that there isn't much movement off the surface but is hopeful of the new ball troubling Indian batters early on Day 2.
“Not a huge amount (of movement) going on. Found some swing early and it was up and down a little bit. Hardly played the last couple of months. Nice to get back onto the park. Hopefully the new ball swings a little bit in the morning and we can get them. India fraction ahead I think. We hung around pretty well. Need a good start in the morning.”

India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live: Spinners not so effective so far
The Kiwi spinners haven't been as effective as their pacers on the first day of the match despite getting significant turn off the surface. However, Rachin Ravindra did create some early troubles with his occasional sharp drifters, which would keep Jadeja and Axar Patel interested. Ajaz Patel, meanwhile, had to resort to bowl negative lines during the closing hours of play and was eventually reprimanded by the umpire.

India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live Updates: Gill on opening
"I have opened for my state team and India A. I have batted in the middle-order as well. There is a little bit of tweaking when you play as an opener or you play as a middle-order batter. It is more on the mental side of the things rather than the technique," the Indian youngster said in the press conference after the first day's play.

Shaw slammed 134 on his Test debut against West Indies in 2018. The record for the highest score by an Indian on Test debut is held by Shikhar Dhawan (187, against Australia). Can Shreyas Iyer join the elite list?

India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live: Brief recap of Day 1
Stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane had won the toss and opted to bat, with India facing an early blow as Mayank Agarwal was dismissed on 13. Shubman Gill (52), along with Cheteshwar Pujara (26), stabilised the innings in first session before the former's wicket in the first over after lunch triggered a middle-order collapse.
Pujara and Rahane (35) failed to impress as both threw stong starts, but Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja put an impressive stand to steer India out of trouble.
For New Zealand, Kyle Jamieson starred with figures of 3/47, while Tim Southee took the wicket of Pujara.
