New Zealand fast bowler Hamish Bennett is unlikely to bowl on the second day of the Ahmedabad Test against India, after suffering a groin strain on the opening day of the series. The team's medical staff said it was too early to determine the seriousness of the injury.
Bennett, who is making his debut, impressed with his pace on the first morning, regularly delivering at speeds around 140kmh. He had figures of 0 for 47 in 15 overs at the end of the day.
New Zealand used six bowlers as India piled up 329 for 3 on Thursday and the loss of Bennett means they will have only one fast bowler - Chris Martin - and two other specialist spinners - Daniel Vettori and Jeetan Patel - at their disposal on the second day. Their part-time options are medium-pacer Jesse Ryder and offspinner Kane Williamson.
