A perfect calm and massive batting performance. After being asked to bat first, the two Indian debutants started well but fell in quick succession after their 50-run opening stand. Iyer joined Kohli then and added 102 runs between them. Kohli fell just after reaching his half ton but Iyer continued. He got another able partner in the form of KL Rahul. The duo added 136 runs between them and that association took the Indians towards a huge total. Iyer, after raking up his maiden ton, holed out but a final flourish from Rahul and Jadhav sees India put on a mountain in front of the Kiwis.
Tim Southee did bag a couple of wickets but he gave away 85 runs for it. Bennett, Neesham, and de Grandhomme too couldn’t trouble the Indian batters much. Ish Sodhi who removed the Indian skipper with a beauty, bowled only 4 overs in the innings and gave 27 runs for it. One would feel that he was under-bowled but with shorter boundaries and the Indians in red-hot form, Latham must’ve thought something and went to their experienced campaigners but that didn’t work out.
