Kane Williamson shines with bat in Wellington

After rain curtailed the opening day of the first Test match between India and New Zealand, the fans got to witness a lot of action on the next day. Resuming their overnight score of 122-5, India added only 43 runs to lose the next 5 wickets and get bundled out for 165 runs.

In response, New Zealand started well but then lost both openers to get reduced to 73-2. At this situation, the hosts were in need of a sturdy batting show and skipper Kane Williamson led from the front. Tackling both the spinners and pacers well, Kane scored his 32nd Test half-century. This effort of him helped Blackcaps to get installed into a healthy position as the senior duo shared a vital partnership of 93 runs for the 3rd wicket.

Unfortunately, the 29-year old batsman wasn’t able to reach the magical three-figure mark. However, he was easily the player of the day from both the sides. India fought back with late wickets as New Zealand went from 166-2 to 207-5. Nevertheless, the day clearly belonged to the Kiwis.
