New Zealand were reminded of what was going to be the tougher of their two tasks on this brief tour of India. Not so much bowling against the Indian batting on the country’s slow, low turners, but batting on those, against the pressure of a sizeable total and the hypnosis wrought by spin. In reply to India’s first innings total of 438, New Zealand ended the second day of the Hyderabad Test at 106 for 5.
After the breakthrough came from Pragyan Ojha who was brought on in the eighth over, R Ashwin prised out the middle of the New Zealand batting, getting Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Daniel Flynn and ending the day with 3 for 30. Ojha has 2 for 35, forcing the error from the capable Kane Williamson for 32, who was out three overs before stumps, which has exposed the New Zealand lower order. James Franklin is batting on 31 along with wicketkeeper Kruger van Wyk.
