Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Sanju Samson, 1.3 ov), 2-48 (Virat Kohli, 4.3 ov), 3-52 (Shreyas Iyer, 6.3 ov), 4-75 (KL Rahul, 8.4 ov), 5-84 (Shivam Dube, 10.2 ov), 6-88 (Washington Sundar, 11.3 ov), 7-131 (Shardul Thakur, 16.3 ov), 8-143 (Yuzvendra Chahal, 17.5 ov)
17.5 to YS Chahal, back of length, thin edge to the keeper and India lost their eighth. Southee banged it in with a stifling line around off, Chahal barely moved and stayed inside the line of the ball to edge it for an easy catch. 143/8
1.3 to SV Samson, oh, dear. Terrible stroke and he's gone. That's a chance wasted. Samson looks to hoick across the line from outside off, gets a top-edge and Santner at cover takes an excellent catch as the ball descends. A quality player like him shouldn't be rushing through to play strokes when he has the entire innings left for himself. He'll be cursing himself for the rest of the evening for missing out on this flat deck. 14/1
11.3 to Washington Sundar, inside edges it to his stumps. A regular offbreak from Santner from around the wicket, he pitches it just outside off and extracts turns, the batsman doesn't move his feet at all while poking and ends up edging in. 88/6
4.3 to V Kohli, what a catch! Leading edge and Santner leaps high and to his right to grab that stunner. India were looking dangerous, Kohli surprised by extra bounce.. 48/2
16.3 to SN Thakur, gets carried away and tries another swing, this one goes really high and Southee gets under it around short mid-on to get both hands. It was the knuckleball from Bennett, Thakur shuffled to off and swung hard but didn't middle it at all. 131/7
6.3 to SS Iyer, got him! Another wrong'un, Iyer looking to cut but is cramped for room, gets a big edge and Seifert takes a superb catch. Rose with the bounce and covered the line nicely. That was a big deflection. India in trouble, needing a middle-order rally. 52/3
8.4 to KL Rahul, he's picked out deep midwicket. That's an absolute dolly to Santner through a horror dragdown ball. What have you done, KL? India slide further.. 75/4
10.2 to S Dube, a big heave, almost another collision but Tom Bruce takes it eventually and Shivam Dube has given it away. Slow delivery by Sodhi on middle stump, Dube went for a big slog-sweep that didn't get the distance at all even on this small ground, went pretty high and Bruce ran to his left from long on to catch it almost colliding into a tumbling Santner. 84/5

Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Martin Guptill, 4.2 ov), 2-96 (Colin Munro, 11.4 ov), 3-97 (Tom Bruce, 12.1 ov), 4-159 (Ross Taylor, 19.1 ov), 5-163 (Tim Seifert, 19.3 ov), 6-164 (Daryl Mitchell, 19.5 ov), 7-165 (Mitchell Santner, 19.6 ov)
19.1 to LRPL Taylor, holed out to deep midwicket, Ross Taylor has thrown it away! A fullish delivery, Taylor lofted it really, really high to his favourite area and Shreyas Iyer had enough time to come under it and get both hands to it. 159/4
19.5 to DJ Mitchell, one more falls, New Zealand are crumbling! It's the knuckleball on length, Mitchell lofts it on the off side, hearts are pounding as the ball hangs in the air, and Shivam Dube comes under it easily from mid off. 164/6
4.2 to MJ Guptill, top-edge, taken by Rahul! Looking to whip this off his hip but the incoming length ball flew off the top edge. The ball was swirling for a while, Rahul called for it loud and clear, trembled just a hint as he saw the ball sway, but was right under it to pouch it.. 22/1
12.1 to TC Bruce, bowled him around the legs! Bit of drift as Chahal slows this one down, it pitches on middle and leg and Bruce wants to paddle it fine by exposing his stumps, the ball doesn't turn but goes straight and knocks over leg stump. 97/3
