WICKET! Shubman Gill c Watling b Wagner 28 (64 balls)
Gill edges a delivery which went straight with the arm from Wagner, BJ Watling makes no mistake behind the stumps. Good length delivery around off, nipping back in, forcing Shubman Gill to play. He went for an off side defense but misses. The ball gets the outside edge and it’s a regulation catch for BJ Watling in his final Test match. India 63/2 (24.3 overs) vs New Zealand
Cheteshwar Pujara yet to get off the mark
Cheteshwar Pujara yet to get off the mark after 15 deliveries, being tested by Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson at the moment but the veteran batsman won’t be bothered by his strike rate as we have all seen in the past. India 63/0 (24 overs) vs New Zealand. Shubman Gill 23*, Pujara 0*
WICKET! Rohit Sharma c Southee b Jamieson 34 (67 balls)
JAMIESON PROVIDES THE BREAKTHROUGH! Rohit goes after a wide delivery, full outside off-stump, but only manages to edge it to 2nd slip. Bowls it fuller outside off, Sharma was leaving anything in that channel but not this time. He pokes at it. The ball finds the outside edge and flies to Tim Southee at third slip. He does well to grab it with both hands diving to his right. India 62/1 (20.1 overs) vs New Zealand
Lunch in Southampton ?
After India's solid start, the Kiwis have fought back with two massive scalps!
