    Live Cricket Score- India 221/4 vs New Zealand Stumps on Day 1

  • 5:55 PM IST

    IND vs NZ Live Match Scor and Updates: India’s day eventually and it is all thanks to Mayank Agarwal who has played brilliant innings. He has scored more than half the runs of his side and is the sole reason for their position in the game. It though all began for India with Gill and Agarwal. The two added 80 before Ajaz Patel got three in no time. Iyer and Agarwal then put up another stand but Patel struck again. That though was the last wicket as Saha and Agarwal who is now over 100, look unbreakable.

    India vs New Zealand Live Streaming Cricket: Shubman Gill – “I was batting well and it was an opportunity for me to go big but unfortunately I missed out on this. There wasn’t much in it for the pacers but there was something for the spinners. The oddball was turning and gripping initially but as the match went on, the wicket settled a bit. It’s important to play the line of the ball, if it’s spinning you don’t go with the spin, it’s important to play the line. If it spins too much, you just hope that it doesn’t take your outside edge and you try not to get lbw especially against to left-arm spinners. Unfortunately, I haven’t got a hundred yet in these 10 matches. It’s not because of my concentration, I have been unlucky sometimes or just not been able to convert those. I feel converting hundreds into big ones is actually one of my strengths. (On Mayank’s century) It was a great knock, he didn’t score much in the first match, he came in and played a determined and great innings. To be able to play 250 balls in a day and go not-out is exceptional.”
