India in control after day 1

It was the same old story. After reducing NZ to 60-6, India failed to deliver the knowckout punch. Brave centuries from Vettori (118) and Ryder (102) saw NZ end at 279. In reply, India were 29-0 at stumps, Sehwag yet again in prime form. Hopefully, India wont lose too many wickets in the first session tomorrow.

And this tradition of letting teams claw back into the test from seemingly hopeless positions has to be broken once and for all. Of course, the morning sun played its part in making the pitch a bit more playable. Z Khan was not his usual self (4+rpo), still we managed to pin them down. I think Harbhajan was over-bowled on the first day (22 overs just 1 wicket). It seems India still needs a quality fast bowling all rounder for such wickets.

Still India are in control on day one. We must look to make 550+ and not bat again – ideally.
