Match Notes

  • Won't allow NZ spinners to dominate - Rahane

    Ajinkya Rahane, the only centurion in India's last home series, has spoken of the need to bat better against the New Zealand spinners, who are a more formidable test than Simon Harmer, Imran Tahir and Dane Piedt

  • Ronchi ton gives New Zealand selection dilemma

    Luke Ronchi and Martin Guptill combined to give the New Zealand team management a selection headache sooner than they would have anticipated

  • Mumbai flay NZ spinners on 402-run day

    Suryakumar Yadav, Kaustubh Pawar, Siddhesh Lad, Arman Jaffer and Aditya Tare continued the tradition of Indian domestic batsmen softening up touring spinners, as New Zealanders' trio of slow bowlers went for 263 in 51 overs

  • NZ declare at 324, Latham and Williamson tune up with fifties

    New Zealanders showed positive intent with the bat against a non-threatening Mumbai attack on a non-threatening track on the first day of the warm-up game in Delhi

  • Kotla pitch stymies NZ's quest to acclimatise

    New Zealand's only warm-up match in a tour played during India's off-season will be played on a pitch that bears little resemblance to the raging turners that they are likely to confront during the Test matches
