New Zealand in India, 2010 Test Series

India vs New Zealand, 1st Test, Ahmedabad, Nov 4-8

Ahmedabad Test, day five: Harbhajan Singh's century helps India pull off a draw against New Zealand in the 1st Test, IND-NZL:0-0(3)

Harbahjan Singh scored his first ever century in international cricket against New Zealand today, saving India from defeat and also earning the 'Player of the Match' title. After India's batting line-up collapsed, with seven of the batsmen getting only single-digit scores, Laxman and Harbhajan took India's total which was at one time 15/5 to 228/7. VVS Laxman also helped India's score with 91 runs before he fell LBW to Vettori even after he got a thick inside edge on a forward defensive poke. Zaheer Khan also left in a similar fashion in the very next ball, with umpire Steve Davis playing the kill joy. However, Harbhajan shrugged off the double setback by waltzing down the wicket to launch Vettori over wide long-off for six and reach his century in the ultimate style. It came from 165 balls with 10 fours and two sixes. New Zealand scored 22 runs for loss of a wicket in 10 overs in their second innings. Zaheer removed Tim McIntosh for a duck, the Black Caps opener completing an unwelcome pair.All eyes now on the 2nd test that will take place at Hyderabad from Nov 12 to 16.
India 487 and 266 (Martin 5-31, Harbhajan 115, Laxman 91) draw against New Zealand 459 (Williamson 131, Ryder 103, McCullum 65, Taylor 56) and 22/1

Ahmedabad Test, day four: Five-for Martin helps New Zealand wrest initiative

New Zealand pacer Chris Martin bowled superbly on an unhelpful pitch to demolish the top order and leave India with a fragile lead of 110 and six wickets down in their second innings on Sunday. His victims included Sachin Tendulkar as he took 5-25 to leave the home side on 82-6 at the end of the fourth day's play, a lead of only 110 runs.
Earlier, 20-year-old Kane Williamson became the youngest New Zealander to score a century on his Test debut. He made 131 out of a total of 459, Pragyan Ojha taking 4-107 for India.
India 487 and 82 for 6 (Martin 5-31) lead New Zealand 459 (Williamson 131, Ryder 103, McCullum 65, Taylor 56) by 110 runs

Ahmedabad Test, day three: New Zealand's Jesse Ryder & Kane Williamson defy India

Jesse Ryder (103) and newcomer Kane Williamson (87*) led a brave New Zealand fightback on day three of the first Test against India in Ahmedabad. The Kiwis were 137-4 when the pair came together but added 194 to see their side to 331-5 at the close.
New Zealand 331 for 5 (Ryder 103, Williamson 87*, McCullum 65, Taylor 56) trail India 487 by 156 runs

Ahmedabad Test, day two: Harbhajan's 69 Lifts India against New Zealand

Tailender Harbhajan Singh struck a career-best 69 before India picked up two early wickets to put New Zealand under pressure on the second day of the first Test on Friday. Harbhajan slammed three sixes and five fours in his 97-ball knock to steer India's first innings to 487 after the hosts had been reduced to 412-8 on a deteriorating wicket at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad.In the two hours to stumps, the tourists responded with 69 for two, with Brendon McCullum to resume tomorrow on 38 alongside vice-captain Ross Taylor on 18.
New Zealand 69 for 2 trail India 487 (Sehwag 173, Dravid 104, Harbhajan 69) by 418 runs

Ahmedabad Test, day one: Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid put India in charge

Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid scored centuries and shared a 237-run second wicket partnership to dominate the opening day of the first Test against New Zealand on Thursday. Sehwag made 173 before being bowled by Black Caps skipper Daniel Vettori, while Dravid contributed 104 as India reached 329-3 at stumps. Sachin Tendulkar (13) and VVS Laxman (7) were not out at the close.
