Kanpur: India were 82 for 2 in their first innings of the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur, a shortwhile ago.

Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bat first at the Green Park Stadium.

For India, Shreyas Iyer has made his Test debut and will be looking to make a mark in the first game of longer format.

Team India opener Shubman Gill slammed his fourth half-century in Test matches as the hosts got off to a decent start after winning the toss in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur on Thursday, November 25. Stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and chose to bat first on a good batting surface.

Openers Gill and Mayank Agarwal had to counter the swing early on from the New Zealand pacers. While they managed to get through the first half an hour, the latter, who looked tentative against the moving delivery was dismissed by the tall Kyle Jamieson for just 13 as the visitors got an early breakthrough.

India Playing XI: Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, and Umesh Yadav.
