After Guptill’s early exit, it was the partnership between Henry Nicholls and Kane Williamson that threatened India.
The two added 68 runs for the 2nd wicket after very slow start.
Just when the partnership was getting New Zealand back on track Ravindra Jadeja bowled a magical ball to Henry Nicholls to get rid of him at score 69.
This is what Jadeja brings when he is in playing 11.
He bowled wicket-to-wicket and when the batsman wasn’t attacking him, he kept hitting a consistent line and got one to spin sharply. Nicholls tried to defend off the front foot, but the ball sneaked through the bat-pad gap to hit middle and off stump.
The stubborn 68-run stand was broken and the Indian fans were absolutely loving it in the stands.
