New Zealand openers not only survived but scored 72 runs in the 2nd session of day 2 of the 1st test after bowling India out for 345 here in Green Park Stadium, Kanpur. 

Resuming the session at 339/8, Umesh Yadav smashed Kyle Jamieson for a six to clear his intentions while at the crease, however, Ajaz Patel finally got his line and length right to remove R Ashwin and Ishant Sharma and wrap up the Indian innings. 


Kiwi openers Tom Latham and Will Young began well to counter the new ball. Ishant Sharma almost got Latham out but the decision was reversed after finding an inside edge. A similar thing happened later when Ravindra Jadeja too got him out only to get the decision reversed. 

The duo has so far looked solid and has added 72 runs. With the wicket not doing much for the spinners, it'll be a tough task for the Indian bowlers to get the Kiwis out.
