Brendon McCullum completed his 150 and Corey Anderson struck a half-century as New Zealand continued to pile on runs on Day Two of the first Test against India at Auckland on Friday. The pair also added 100 runs in just 123 balls. New Zealand are on 370 for four with McCullum on 157 and Anderson on 69.

McCuulum and Anderson continued to score runs at will hitting a few boundaries on the second morning. Anderson was particularly harsh on Ishant Sharma hitting three boundaries in an over. McCullum got to his 150 with a boundary off Zaheer Khan’s delivery. Anderson soon followed with another boundary off Ishant to get to his half-century.

With the new ball 10 overs old, the Indian pacers bowled a fuller length to get seam movement in the morning. But the batsmen survived and were more on the aggressive side. At the end of Day One, New Zealand were 329 for four.
