IND vs NZ Live: India and New Zealand are currently facing each other in the first test match. Moreover, the game is being played at the Green Park International Stadium in Kanpur, India.
Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane went on to win the toss and he elected to have a bat first. However, India was not very impressive in the first innings. Courtesy to players like Pujara, Rahane, Agarwal and Saha, the men in blue could not do well.
However, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja stood up for the occasion as they put up a 100+ runs partnership. It was brilliant by both of the Indian pairs. Jadeja went on to score a fifty while Shreyas Iyer went on to score a hundred.
As a result of that, the men in blue put up a score of 345 runs which was an okayish kind of score. But New Zealand had a great start on the behest of Will Young and Tom Latham. Both were very good from the starting itself on Day 2.
They put up a partnership of 151 runs for the first wicket. However, the Indian spinners went on to show their magic.
They took the wickets one after the other. And the New Zealand innings went on to crumble down in that period.
As a result of that, New Zealand were all out for just 296 runs in their innings. They fell short and now they are trailing India by 63 runs. However, Kyle Jamieson went on to remove Shubman Gill and India are at 14/1.
IND vs NZ Live: Wasim Jaffer trolls Axar Patel
Wasim Jaffer is a familiar face when it comes to social media and precisely Twitter. He is known for his good sense of humour and constant pulling of others’ legs.
The former Indian cricketer did something similar with Axar Patel. The Delhi Capitals player took five wickets and went on to earn the ball.
However, the ball had a wrong date and Wasim Jaffer trolled Axar Patel on Twitter for that. However, Axar Patel was quick to notice it. He wrote that it was Surya Kumar Yadav who had put the wrong date on the ball.
Axar Patel at the end of Day 3 said, “It is a dream start this is a dream within a dream start for me. No, Test cricket is not easy. It was a hard grind today. They did not lose any wickets yesterday and the talk was to keep it tight, don’t try for wickets every ball, just look to be patient.”
He further added, “I was sticking to the basics and using the crease a bit. My round-arm deliveries were getting something out of the track and I was optimising that a lot. That’s what worked for me.”
