It took them a while but New Zealand seamers seem to have finally got in the thick of things as they have sent back both the Indian openers- Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill- in the second hour of the morning session.

Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill had successfully negated the opening hour against the likes of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, and Kyle Jamieson.

The duo batted outside the crease to negate the movement, were proactive in the footmark, and cashed in on anything that was short or full with disdain.

But as it looked like the openers were warming up for a 100-run-stand, Kyle Jamieson lulled Rohit Sharma into an ill-fated drive, only to give a catch to the slip cordon.

It all happened to the 3rd ball of the 25th over Shubman Gill pushed at a fullish length delivery away from his body to give BJ Watling a regulation catch.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli survived the last few overs before the lunch break to ensure that India went into the changing room at 2/69 after 28 overs.
