The Indian team scored 258 runs losing 4 wickets on the first day of the Kanpur Test. There was a 113-run undefeated partnership between Shreyas Iyer (75) and Ravindra Jadeja (50) for fifth field. The India team, which had lost all four wickets for 145 races at a time, was looking for trouble, but the partnership of Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja brought the India team to 250.
On day one, New Zealand fast pitcher Kyle Jamieson emerged as the biggest problem for the India team. Jamieson sent Mayank Agarwal (13 races) and Shubman Gill (52), Team India’s opening pair, to the pavilion. He also uprooted the grounds of Ajinkya Rahane (35), who had a keen eye on the ground. Jamieson took 3 wickets for 47 runs on 15.2 balls. At the same time, the Saudi team got a window. It caused the vice-captain of the India team, Cheteshwar Pujara (26), to be trapped behind the wicket.
Shreyas Iyer showed strong play on his first tryout. Coming to bat in the fifth order, Shreyas played an undefeated inning of 75 runs on 136 balls. The all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja supported him well. Jadeja returned to the pavilion undefeated in 50 against 100 balls. There was an undefeated 113-run partnership between the two players.
