New Zealand vs India, Bangalore test

2nd Test at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore

Bangalore test, day one: Taylor slams ton, van Wyk scores maiden fifty; Kiwis 328/6

Kruger van Wyk and Doug Bracewell added an unbeaten 82 runs stand to take New Zealand to 328/6 at the close on the first day of the second Test against India at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday. Ross Taylor cracked a brisk century after New Zealand won the toss and chose to bat against India. While India decided to field the same team that defeated the Kiwis by an innings and 115 runs in the first Test at Hyderabad, the Black Caps brought in pacer Tim Southee in place of Chris Martin. New Zealand XI: MJ Guptill, BB McCullum, KS Williamson, LRPL Taylor (Captain), DR Flynn, JEC Franklin, CFK van Wyk (Wicket Keeper), DAJ Bracewell, JS Patel, TG Southee, TA Boult
India XI: G Gambhir, V Sehwag, V Kohli, SR Tendulkar, CA Pujara, SK Raina, MS Dhoni (Capt, Wkt), R Ashwin, Z Khan, PP Ojha, UT Yadav.
Second Test, day one: New Zealand 328/6 (81.3 ov; Taylor 113, Guptill 53, van Wyk 63*) vs India

Bangalore test, day two: Kohli, Dhoni steady India; 283/5 at stumps

Virat Kohli (93*) and Skipper MS Dhoni (46*) stitched an unbeaten century partnership to guide India to 283/5, in reply to New Zealand's 365, at close on the second day of the second Test in Bangalore. Pragyan Ojha, the first Indian spinner to open the bowling in Tests in the first innings, claimed his third five-wicket haul as Indian bowlers made a good comeback by restricting New Zealand to 365. The Kiwis could add just 37 runs in 8.4 overs to their overnight score of 328 for six before India wrapped up the innings 45 minutes into the morning session.
Second Test, day two: India 283/5 (Raina 55, Kohli 93*, Dhoni 46*) vs New Zealand 365 (Taylor 113, Guptill 53, van Wyk 71, Ojha 5-99)

Bangalore test, day three: Ashwin gives India the advantage

Fourteen wickets fell on day three of the 2nd Test match between India and New Zealand courtesy Tim Southee (7/64) and Ravichandran Ashwin (5/69). Earlier in the day, India's Virat Kohli, unbeaten on 93 overnight, struck two boundaries to complete his second test century before he became Southee's first victim of the morning. Tim Southee returned a career-best seven-wicket haul while Dough Bracewell took two wickets in Indian first innings, which folded for 353, 12 short of Kiwi total. India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin once again turned out to be New Zealand's tormentor with his fifth five-wicket haul. With this, he became the first Indian bowler to record five instances of five wickets or more in an innings in the first eight Tests. New Zealand ended the day on 232/9 with an overall lead of 244 runs and their number 10 batsman Jeetan Patel (10) and number 11 Trent Boult (nought) at the crease.
Second Test, day three: New Zealand 365 (Taylor 113, Guptill 53, van Wyk 71, Ojha 5-99) and 232/9 (Franklin 41, Ashwin 5-69) lead India 353 (Raina 55, Kohli 103, Dhoni 62) by 244 runs with 1 wicket remaining

Bangalore test, day four: Kohli, Dhoni guide India to series whitewash [IND-NZL:2-0 (2/2)]

Virat Kohli, who struck a brilliant half-century under pressure, and skipper MS Dhoni led from the front to help India to complete series whitewash against New Zealand with a comfortable five-wicket victory in the second Test at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Virat Kohli hit three boundaries off Tim Southee’s 18th over to reach his half-century and in the very next over, MS Dhoni hit a four and a six in successive balls to seal the victory and become the most successful Indian Test captain at home.
Second Test, day four: India 353 (Raina 55, Kohli 103, Dhoni 62) & 262/5 (Kohli 51*, Dhoni 48*) beat New Zealand 365 (Taylor 113, Guptill 53, van Wyk 71, Ojha 5-99) & 248 (Franklin 41, Ashwin 5-69) by 5 wkts

New Zealand vs India, Hyderabad test

1st Test at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad

Hyderabad test, day one: Pujara slams his maiden Test ton; India 307/5

Cheteshwar Pujara's unbeaten century helped India reach 307 for five on day one of the first Test against New Zealand at Hyderabad. In just his fourth test, Pujara hit 16 boundaries in his innings of 119 not out and his 125-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Virat Kohli turned the match in India's favour after the Kiwi seamers provided a promising opening to the tour. Earlier, India had a brisk start when the opening duo of Gautam Gambhir and Sehwag added 49 runs for the first wicket after Dhoni elected to bat after winning the toss. New Zealand XI: Ross Taylor(c), Brendon McCullum, BJ Watling, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Neil Wagner, Kruger van Wyk(w), James Franklin, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Doug Bracewell, Chris Martin, Daniel Flynn, Tarun Nethula, Jeetan Patel
India XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav.
First Test, day one: India 307 for 5 wkts, 87 overs vs New Zealand

Hyderabad test, day two: Pujara 159; New Zealand 106/5 at stumps

Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha took full advantage of a helpful track to rip through New Zealand's top order and put India in the driver's seat after the second day of their opening Test in Hyderabad on Friday. New Zealand were 106 for five at stumps, in reply to India's first innings total of 438, largely built around Cheteshwar Pujara's 159. India's first innings ended on 438 with Pujara adding 127 runs for the sixth wicket with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni who chipped in with a useful 73.
First Test, day two: New Zealand 106/5 (Williamson 32, Franklin 31*) trail India 438 (Pujara 159, Dhoni 73, Kohli 58) by 332 runs

Hyderabad test, day three: India enforces follow on

1st Test, Hyderabad, Day 3, stumps: India 438 (Pujara 159, Dhoni 73, Kohli 58) lead New Zealand 159 (61.3 ov; Ashwin 6-31) and 41/1 (follow on) by 238 runs

Hyderabad test, day four: India beat New Zealand by an innings and 115 runs [IND-NZL:1-0 (1/2)]

New Zealand imploded for the second time in as many days to slump to an embarrassing innings and 115-run loss in the first Test against India. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up a career-best 12 wickets to help India take a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series on Sunday. Ashwin's 6-54, his second six-wicket haul in the match, and Pragyan Ojha's 3-48 bundled the visitors out for 164 in their 2nd innings, a mere 5 runs more than their 1st innings total.
1st Test, Hyderabad, Day 4: New Zealand 159 (Ashwin 6-31) and 164 (follow on; Ashwin 6-54) lose to India 438 (Pujara 159, Dhoni 73, Kohli 58) by an innings and 115 runs

New Zealand in India, 2012 Test & T20I Series

Pujara, Rahane could get Test spots; Badrinath in for VVS

India start Test series as firm favourites even without Dravid, Laxman

India, who lost eight consecutive away tests in England and Australia last year to relinquish the world number one status, will be without two batting stalwarts in Hyderabad on the opening day tomorrow against New Zealand. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are the most likely candidates to fill the void left by retirements in the Indian team. Badrinath, 31, who has played two Tests for India has been called up to the India squad for the Tests against New Zealand as a replacement for VVS Laxman. Eighth-ranked New Zealand has never won a series in India.

Yuvraj Singh Returns to India T20I Team

VVS Laxman retains spot in Test team

Contrary to media reports of VVS Laxman getting an axe, the Hyderabadi batsman has retained his spot in the Indian Test team against the touring New Zealand. Ishant Sharma, who had undergone an ankle surgery earlier this year, and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who took a break from the Sri Lanka series, are both back in the side.Team India for Test series against NZ: MS Dhoni (Captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Ajinkya Rahane, Piyush Chawla, Ishant Sharma, Suresh Raina. Yuvraj Singh meanwhile returned to the T20I squad after nine months and a battle with cancer. He has been picked in the squad for the T20 matches against the Kiwis on September 8 and September 11 and also for the T20 World Cup which begins in Sri Lanka on September 18. Harbhajan Singh who battled injury and bad form returned after a whole year. The T20 squad consists of eight players who were a part of India's historic T20 triumph in South Africa five years back. Team India for T20Is/ICC World T20: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, L Balaji, Ashok Dinda, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh and Manoj Tiwary.

Kiwis in India as part of their preparations for the ICC World T20
