'Not good enough': Kohli has no excuses for heavy India Test loss

Southee claims five-for as New Zealand crush India in Test opener NZ take 183-run lead over India at lunch
Noah Ferguson | 26 February, 2020, 14:23

It left the Black Caps a mere nine runs to beat the world's top-ranked side, with Tom Latham and Tom Blundell taking just 10 deliveries to knock off the target and give New Zealand their 100th Test victory.

The hosts had established an 183-run first innings lead after they were dismissed before lunch with Colin de Grandhomme, debutant Kyle Jamieson and Boult counter-attacking to bolster their advantage. Ravichandran Ashwin was trapped in front by Southee, while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant picked out the safe hands of Boult in the deep from Southee's bowling as India were cleaned up for 191 - Southee ending with 5-61, and Boult 4-39.

In winning Black Caps test teams, Southee has 147 wickets at 21.91, with four bags of five wickets.

New Zealand now have 120 points in the World Test championship and India stayed on top with 360 points.

Kohli was even happier when de Grandhomme was given out lbw for seven shortly after by umpire Aleem Dar, but the batsman had the decision overturned on review and he then combined with Jamieson to turn the match back to New Zealand's favour.

Jamieson's emergence as a pace bowling threat who can also bat-he scored 44 in New Zealand's first innings-could create some selection issues with Neil Wagner coming back for the second game starting at Hagley Oval on Saturday. "When you have a couple of poor ones, the want for a good one can be a distraction to getting it", argued Williamson.

In the first session, Kyle Jamieson continued with his dream debut as he and No 11 Trent Boult belted the Indian bowlers for fun to stretch New Zealand's lead above 175-run mark.

"We know them pretty well - we played a series against them late past year, and we saw them beat England the other day in the practice game", the skipper said. "Being able to pick up those two wickets before the second new ball was crucial", Southee said.

It began the day only 51 runs ahead at 216-5 but solidified its position when its last three wickets produced 123 runs.

In the 95 overs of the innings, Ashwin stopped his innings, stopping Ashwin Grandhom from making Fifty.

But that argument won't hold true when the Indian team management is doing the post-mortem of the 10-wicket loss against New Zealand at Wellington.

"It's been about buying into what the team needs. and being willing to try things and look to break the momentum of the batting side", he said.

"Sometimes scores don't reflect the way you are batting", he said.

The two sides will now lock horns in the second Test of the two-match series, beginning February 29 at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
