Axar carried forward the momentum from the second session to pick two more wickets in the third, while Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed a dangerous-looking Kyle Jamieson on 23 before taking out William Somerville on 6 for New Zealand's final wicket of the innings.

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test: A good day at the office for India

    Well, this was a good day in Kanpur for Team India. Will Young and Tom Lathan stitched a staggering 151-run opening stand but the Indian bowlers made a strong comeback to bag all 10 wickets for the next 145 runs. Axar Patel was the star of the show, as he ran through the Kiwis line-up to bag his 5th five-wicket hauls in just 7 innings (4 Tests). India began their second innings with 49-run lead and would have loved to see their openers unbeaten overnight but it wasn't to be as Kyle Jamieson bagged his 50th Test wicket and got rid of Shubman Gill on 1. Eventually, two streaky boundaries from Cheteshwar Pujara (9*) and nervous-looking Mayank Agarwal (4*) closed out the dayat 14/1, with a lead a of 63 runs.

  • Nov 27, 2021 04:37 PM IST

    IND vs NZ Live Score: Star of Day 3, Axar Patel, speaks

    “It's a dream start, in fact this is a dream within a dream start for me. No, it (Test cricket) isn't that easy. Was a hard grind today. They didn't lose any wickets yesterday and the talk was to keep it tight, don't try for wickets every ball, just look to be patient. I was sticking to the basics and using the crease a bit. My round-arm deliveries were getting something out of the trick and I was optimising that a lot. That's what worked for me. The track is getting slower and there has been more turn now. Variable bounce is also increasing but still think that runs can be made if the batters apply themselves.”

    IND vs NZ Live: Inside edge but safe

    Ajaz Patel has been introduced into the attack

    INSIDE EDGE! Ajaz Patel floats it up around off and Mayank presses forward for a hard push. The ball races past the leg slip off the inside edge and the batters run 2. That wasn't very far from disturbing his timber.

    Splendid performance from Indian spinners led by Axar Patel who took his fifth five-wicket haul in only his fourth Test. Ravichandran Ashwin (3/82) got the key breakthrough in the first session (Will Young) which began India's revival on Day 3.

    Axar Patel carries forward the momentum from the second session to pick two more, completing an incredible fifth five-wicket haul in his fourth Test. India are close to securing a first-innings lead but they need to ensure New Zealand don't reduce the deficit too much.

  • Nov 27, 2021 03:28 PM IST

    IND vs NZ 1st Test Live: WICKET!

    Low bounce gets another Kiwi batter. Blundell departs, Axar gets his fourth!

    Unlucky there, Blundell. Axar pitches it up a little but the ball kept significantly low. Nothing much one can do as a batter against a sudden change of trajectory as big as that.

  • Nov 27, 2021 02:06 PM IST

    IND vs NZ 1st Test Live: Maiden from Jadeja

    Jadeja, meanwhile, keeps it tight from the other end as well. Good variations with pace through the over, and also allows Jamieson some width to work on. The batter couldn't resist but finds fielder at backward point.

    NZ 244/6 in 115 overs

  • Nov 27, 2021 02:03 PM IST

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live Score: NZ 244/6 in 114 overs

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live Updates: India lose second review

    Going down the leg. Ishant looked particularly enthusiastic for this one but it was a good decision from Virender Sharma. A little bit of seam movement into the batter which probably convinced Ishant for the LBW. Blundell survives.

  • Nov 27, 2021 01:56 PM IST

    Axar gets the big fish! Tom Latham departs on 95! Latham steps out on a delivery pitched outside off but the ball turns in sharply into the left-hander. The Kiwi batter completely misses the line as the ball deflects past Latham's gloves and changes trajectory. KS Bharat remains alert of the deviation and collects the ball to low to strike the bails.

  • Nov 27, 2021 12:37 PM IST

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live: NZ 210/2 in 92 overs

  • Nov 27, 2021 12:29 PM IST

    IND vs NZ 1st Test Live Updates: Umesh going short

    The low bounce on the pitch keeps Ross Taylor guessing against the short-pitched deliveries. The third ball, pitched short, goes past Taylor's helmet while the fifth, pitched in a similar area, rises up till his chest as the batter remains in two minds and barely survives nicking it.

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live: Dropped catch, missed stumping!

    Ross Taylor stepping out against Axar on a number of occasions, so the left-armer darts a straight one onto him. Taylor barely manages to get the bat on it and finds an inside-edge. KS Bharat, seemingly blinded by the action up front, fails to collect the ball.

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test Live: Umpire's concerns

    The commentators on-air confirm that the umpire's inhibitions about going across the pitch was over blocking the non-striker's path for a quick single. Since Ashwin cannot inform ahead of the delivery if he will be moving across, it is difficult for the non-striker to pre-meditate and position himself away from the pitch as well.

  • Nov 27, 2021 11:09 AM IST

    Ashwin's stride seems to be causing a problem with umpire Nitin Menon's vision. The off-spinner goes across the pitch after bowling the delivery and even as he's not stepping on the danger zone, it might be hampering with the umpire's vision.

    Beautiful shot from the New Zealand captain. Williamson makes space and uses the crease to glide the length delivery towards point against Jadeja.

    IND vs NZ 1st Test Live Updates: NZ 151/0 in 66 overs

    As Ishant had said ahead of the start of Day 3, there's no real movement so far but a far better line from the pacer to Latham than in the previous over. Ishant draws him to play through covers on the second ball but the batter misses the line completely. 

    Ishant switches sides after the fourth delivery but the lines are way outside off. Latham comfortably leaves both balls.

    Ishant bowls down the leg side as Young regains composure with a four.

    “Little bit of dew on the ground. Let's see how the ball behaves because it's 55 overs old. Don't think it will reverse, it may even go straight. I think there might be normal swing on offer. It's better to go with a planned mindset. Yes, that's what we can do (contain the batters), we have to bowl good line and lengths and wait for things to happen. Don't want to try too many things. If we take one or two wickets, we can pull back in the game.”

    India vs New Zealand 1st Test: Brief recap of Day 2

    India made a shaky start to the second day with Ravindra Jadeja departing without adding a run to his overnight score of 50. Wickets continued to fall at one end as Shreyas Iyer held fort on the other and eventually scored his maiden Test ton. The batter became the 16th Indian to slam a century on Test debut as he scored 105. Ravichandran Ashwin's handy 38-run knock took India to 345.

    However, what followed was a combination of flair and patience from the Kiwi opening duo of Tom Latham and Will Young, as the two added 128 runs for the first wicket and remained unbeaten overnight. The two stuck to their plans against spinners and frustrated the Indian players throughout the second and third session, putting the visitors in control.
