India vs New Zealand, 1st Test, Day 2 Live: Shreyas Iyer scored his maiden Test century against New Zealand at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur. The middle order batsman has been impressive since the morning of day 2. Tim Southee is the only successful bowler for New Zealand on the second day as he dismissed all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha early. Jadeja scored 50 before being sent back to the pavilion and added 121 runs for the fifth wicket with debutant Shreyas Iyer. The duo dominated the final session of Day 1 after Kyle Jamieson troubled India’s top order with his top bowling. Jamieson picked up three wickets on the first day, keeping New Zealand in the game.
