Zaheer Khan says momentum in India’s favour against New Zealand

Zaheer Khan said on Saturday that India have a fair chance to take a 1-0 lead in the tw0-match Test series against New Zealand.

India face a daunting task of scoring 407 runs to win the first Test against the Black Caps, who suffered a dramatic batting collapse at Eden Park to leave the match wide open.

All front-line bowlers chipped in on the day, with Ishant Sharma taking three for 28 and Zaheer himself returning two for 23 to bring India back in the game, PTI reported.

Ravindra Jadeja was the other wicket-taker with figures of one for 10. In turn, this gave Ishant match-figures of nine for 162 and the senior pro praised him as well, while talking about the difference in the bowling performances in the two innings.

“Short bowling was our plan in the first innings as we wanted to be aggressive as a bowling unit. Bowling bouncers was an aggressive plan for us. In the second innings, we went in with the approach that we have to focus on bowling the right areas and it worked for us,” Zaheer said.
