India vs New Zealand Live Cricket Score, 1st Test, Day 5: After removing Will Young cheaply on 2, India will aim to pick the remaining nine New Zealand wickets on the final day of the Kanpur Test and go 1-0 up in the ongoing two-match series. New Zealand, on the other hand, will resume Day 5 from the overnight score of 4/1 and need another 280 to win the contest. Tom Latham, who fell five runs short from a deserving century in the first innings, will start the proceedings with night-watchman William Somerville. The tourists will heavily rely on their prolific skipper Kane Williamson and veteran batter Ross Taylor to rescue them out of the danger. Meanwhile, veteran off-spinner Ashwin, who is playing his 80th Test will be eyeing another milestone as he now stands a wicket away from surpassing Harbhajan Singh to become the third-highest wicket-taker from India in the red-ball format. The carrom ball specialist has so far scalped four wickets in the match. Catch the LIVE score updates of India vs New Zealand 1st Test, Day 5

A tough stumping opportunity for KS Bharat. The ball turns wide of Somerville, who leans forward to push the ball towards the mid-on region. Fails to make any connection, loses his balance and comes out of his crease. However, the wicketkeeper fails to hold onto the ball and it goes past him and the leg slip as the batter runs a double. NZ: 12/1

IND vs NZ: Pitch report by Deep Dasgupta and Simon Doull
Both the ex-cricketers reckon that the pitch hasn’t “deteriorated”. A good sign for the Kiwis, we must agree.
“It hasn’t deteriorated as much as expected, it still looks alright. There are a few cracks but either they are too full or too wide. The areas where the spinners will mostly bowl looks alright. It’ll still be lot of hard work.”

IND vs NZ: Rahane draws flak after yet another poor display
Ajinkya Rahane has received a lot of flak for his show with the bat. The stand-in skipper scored 35 in the first inning and could only manage 4 in the second. Assessing Rahane’s show, former New Zealand international Simon Doull said:
“He’s a better player than that. His dismissals against spin since 2019, you look at those, outside the line of off-stump, a lot of full deliveries. So, he’s getting lbw with the one that’s skidding on, he’s nicked off, or he’s chipping one to cover, mid-off and those areas. So, those are the dismissals against spin he would be worried about.”

‘We have real spin power’
“Rahul Sir had told me to bat as many balls as possible and I was determined to do that. We felt that 250 including the first innings lead would have been a good score, so we’re very happy with where we are now. Actually, not a lot was happening with the wicket today, the ball was keeping a bit low. The talk was to get to a competitive total and I feel that it’s a really good total. We have real spin power, so hopefully we can get the job done tomorrow.” – Shreyas Iyer after stumps on Day 4

Simon Doull rates Rahane & co against spin
“Normally you’d think Indian players, Indian conditions, better players of spin. I don’t think by any stretch the current crop of Indian players are anywhere near the quality of players of spin of years gone by. The Laxmans, the Dravids, the Sachins, and Gautam Gambhir. Players like that who were just brilliant players of spin. I don’t think the current crop are as good,” the former Kiwi international said on Star Sports during the lunch break on Day 4.

Shreyas Iyer: India’s debutant makes an instant impact
India middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer scripted history on Sunday afternoon in the ongoing Test between India and New Zealand in Kanpur. The right-handed batter, who scored 65 off 125 balls, became the first Indian to score a century and a half-century in the same Test on debut. He is overall the tenth cricketer to achieve this big feat.
Nov 29, 2021 07:34 AM IST
India rode on fifty-run partnerships for the sixth, seventh and eighth wickets— only the second occasion in Indian cricket history—after the top and middle-order batters failed again.
The hosts set an improbable 284-run target and Ashwin dismissed Will Young (2) before the Kiwis ended the day on 4/1. TV replays suggested the ball would have missed the stumps. Young contemplated a review, and by the time he made his request, the 15-second DRS window had elapsed. With that dismissal, Ashwin became the joint third highest wicket-taker for India, equalling Harbhajan Singh’s haul (417 wickets).
