A five-for by left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha has helped India restricted New Zealand only to 365 runs on day two of the second Test at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday.
New Zealand started day two of the second Test with a score of 328 runs for the loss of six wickets against India at Chinnaswamy Stadium at Bangalore on Saturday.
Earlier on day one, captain Ross Taylor launched a stunning counter-attack with a blistering 113 as New Zealand showed great fighting spirit against India to recover from early jolts in the second Test at Bangalore on Friday.
Taylor notched up his seventh Test century to pull his team out of trouble and guide the Kiwis to a respectable 328 for six on the opening day before bad light stopped play at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
It was a vastly improved batting display by the Kiwis who were bundled out cheaply in both the innings in the massive defeat in the first Test in Hyderabad.
Brief Scores: New Zealand 365 (Ross Taylor 113, Kruger van Wyk 71, Martin Guptill 53; Pragyan Ojha 5 for 99, Zaheer Khan 2 for 83) vs India
