  • India lead series 1-0

    India win the first Test in Hyderabad and lead the series 1-0. It started with a great batting performance by Cheteshwar Pujara, supported by Kohli and Dhoni to end up with 438 in the first innings. The spinners took control of the match, and even the rain delays could not help the Kiwis. Ashwin took 6 and Ojha took 3 in each innings to make things difficult for the visitors. The catching helped the bowling, resulting in an all round performance.New Zealand were bowled out for 159 in the first innings and made to follow on. Their second innings performance was only slightly better, as they got to 164. They can blame a few bad decisions, and the situation may have been different if they had gone their way, but overall it was a dismal performance from them. They need to forget this test and have a lot of work to do to prepare for the next one.
  • Over 80 - Ashwin 0-W-0-0-W

    WICKET! A sharp catch by Sehwag in the slips. Ashwin bowls a great top spinner and Boult edges it to the slips. Ashwin picks up his fifth of this innings and 11th of the match. WICKET! Chris Martin goes for another duck, Ashwin gets him lbw with the carrom ball. NZ all out for 159 in the first innings and 164 in the second. Ashwin starts with 6 wickets in each innings.
  • Over 79 - Ojha 0-0-0-0-0-4

    Patel almost hits the umpire as he hits one to the leg side. Ojha bowling a very good over. NZ trail by 115 runs.
  • Over 78 - Ashwin 1b-W-0-0-0-0

    WICKET! Kruger van Wyk departs after playing a bad shot. Playing a reverse sweep in a test is unusual, but playing it when you are an innings and 119 behind is just silly! Ashwin gets his forth making it 10 wickets for him this match. Another appeal for lbw, but it was going down leg. Boult the new man in.
  • Over 77 - Ojha 0-0-4-4-0-0

    van Wyk plays this one nicely on the leg side for a four. Another four, this time behind point. So van Wyk has decided that he will play his shots. Ojha goes for 8 in that over. NZ 120 runs behind.
  • Over 76 - Ashwin 0-0-0-1-2-0

    Jeetan Patel who is just in plays one through the covers for a couple of runs. Just three from that over, spinners in control.
  • Over 75 - Ojha 0-0-1-0-0-W

    Ojha from the other end. The batsmen struggling against spin. Good catch by Kohli, Bracewell has to go. Ojha creates a nice angle, ball going away from the right hander who touches it and Kohli dives to catch a low one. Seven down now, Kiwi being out-spinned!
  • Over 74 - Ashwin 1-0-0-0-0-0

    Ashwin after tea, van Wyk works him to the leg side for a single. Good turn and purchase off the pitch for Ashwin. Just the single from that over.
  • Over 73 - Ojha 0-0-0-0-0-0

    NZ now trail by 133 runs. India looking to get the four remaining wickets. Ojha bowls another maiden. Umpires call TEA!
  • Over 72 - Ashwin 0-1-0-0-0-0

    Dhoni started today with these two spinners, but realized the pitch was not helping them then. It is certainly helping them now. Good bounce and spin. A good take from Dhoni as the ball bounces high. van Wyk is trying to sweep every ball, which could cause an lbw.
  • Over 71 - Ojha 0-0-0-0-0-0

    Ojha bowls a maiden to van Wyk. Really good bowling from India, supported by good catching.
  • Over 70 - Ashwin 0-0-0-0-0-W

    Franklin trying to get a single but failing, Indians keeping it tight. A good over from Ashwin and get rewarded with a wicket. WICKET! A beautiful catch from Sehwag, Franklin has to go. Ashwin spinning away at the Kiwis. A wicket maiden. Sehwag stretched it and took it almost behind Dhoni's gloves, great catch!
  • Over 69 - Ojha 1-0-0-0-0-0

    van Wyk is trying to attack the bowler and playing his shots, not sure if that is the right idea at this stage. Rahane got hit on the hand as he tried to duck and cover his helmet, he was in a bit of pain but is smiling now.
  • Over 68 - Ashwin 0-W-0-0-0-2

    WICKET! Flynn tries to sweep against the spin of Ashwin and is given out lbw. No doubt about that one, he was caught in front of the stumps. Dhoni putting pressure on van Wyk. van Wyk pulls away this one for a couple of runs.
  • Over 67 - Ojha 0-0-0-0-0-4

    Now there are four men around the bat, one on the off and three on the leg side. Franklin defending well, then goes with the spin and over the in-field for four.
  • Over 66 - Ashwin 0-0-0-0-0-0

    The spin twins operating for India. Ashwin runs in with four men around the bat. A maiden from Ashwin, another good over.
  • Over 65 - Ojha 0-W-0-0-0-0

    Ojha brought back into the attack and claims the wicket of Williamson. Sehwag takes a low catch, as Ojha picks up a typical off spinners wicket. WICKET! Williamson departs after a good knock, Franklin walks in. A wicket maiden.
  • Over 64 - Ashwin 0-0-0-3-0-0

    Williamson runs hard and gets three runs to bring up his 50. A well fought innings from him. He has played well and steadied the ship for NZ.
  • Over 63 - Raina 1-0-0-0-0-1

    Raina chips in with another good over. Williamson is still on 49.
  • Over 62 - Khan 3-0-0-0-0-0

    Ashwin chasing the ball and stopping it just before the ropes, they run three. Khan still searching for his first wicket of the test match. Williamson has now been at the crease for over 3 hours.
