India won the toss and elected to bat first in the first Test between India and New Zealand in Kanpur starting today. Since captain Virat Kohli did not play in this match, Ajinkya Rahane will replace him as captain.

Mayank Agarwal, India’s opening batsman, was dismissed for 13. After that, Shubman Gill and Pujara formed a partnership and drove better. Gill, who played well, scored a fifty. But Boltaki came out on top with a 52-run knock off Jamieson’s innings without using the opening innings. Gill and Pujara combined for 61 for the 2nd wicket.

Killa was followed by Pujara for 26 and then Shreyas Iyer paired with captain Rahane. Rahane, who has been consistently batting lately, felt compelled to need a big innings in this match and realized it and drove clearly. Rahane, who started well and played well, was expected to play a big innings in the match, but was bowled out for 35 by a misjudged shot.

He became the inside edge when he hit the ball that went out of the stumps. Rahane, who was playing well, was dismissed for 35 by a wrong shot selection.

Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja together saved the Indian team, which lost 4 wickets for 145 runs. Shreyas Iyer, who made a huge impact in the inaugural match, is on the field with 75 runs at the end of the first day’s play. Jadeja, who scored a half-century, is also on the field with 50 runs. At the end of the first day, the Indian team scored 258 runs for the loss of 4 wickets.

VVS Laxman has strongly criticized Ajinkya Rahane for missing the wrong shot in the match. Speaking on the occasion, VVS Laxman said that Rahane’s shot pitch did not play well. Rahane will not play short pitch balls with any shot other than a bull shot. In South Africa or Australia, you can go and play near the ball line; Because there will be good bounce. But that shot should not be played in Kanpur where there is no bounce. Laxman said that on pitches like this one should play in a vertical bat in the full face of the bat.
