India vs New Zealand Second Test 2009: New Zealand on Top After Day 1

It seemed that New Zealand players have learnt something after suffering a crushing defeat in the 1st Test against India. Indian bowlers were at top in the first hour of Day 1. However, after that for the rest of the day, it was two Kiwi batsmen who dominated all the way. In fact, at one stage, the Kiwis were in deep trouble in 23/3. Many fans thought that it was the end for them in this test. However, Ross Taylor and Jesse Ryder had something in their mind and they put on a massive partnership. Taylor scored 151 and Ryder is unbeaten 137 and 271 runs came from fourth wicket partnership. At the end of the day, the Kiwis were 351-4.

The obvious goal of New Zealand will be pile up a huge and imposing total on Day 2. They will surely look for a score 500+ in the first innings. On the other hand, Indian bowlers will want to restrict the Kiwis under 400 runs. The Indian fans are perhaps worried after Day 1. It should be mentioned here that their team has never won a test series in New Zealand. This is indeed their best chance to rewrite the history.
