Ind Vs Nz, Live, 1st Test, Day 5

IND vs NZ, Live, 1st Test, Day 5: Today is the last day for the first Test between India and New Zealand at Kanpur. The fifth day of the match will take an interesting turn. India declared their second innings at 234 for seven, setting a target of 284 for New Zealand. Never in the history of Test cricket has a foreign team cracked such a big target on Indian soil. The West Indies became the first team to score 276 in New Delhi in 1987. The Kiwis lost one wicket in the second innings. Opener Will Young made two runs and was out in the final moments of the fourth day.

New Zealand needed another 280 runs to win the final day. But India need nine wickets to win. The pitch is still helping the batsmen and bowlers. Earlier, Shreyas Iyer (65 off 125 balls, eight fours, one six), who scored a century in the first innings of his Test debut, became the first Indian to score a half-century in the second innings under tremendous pressure. Ravichandran Ashwin (32) put on 52 for the sixth wicket and Wriddhiman Saha (61 not out, four fours off 126 balls, one six) for 64 for the seventh wicket. Saha, along with Akshar Patel (28 not out), put on an unbeaten 67 for the eighth wicket. India declared the innings at 234.
