    India have lost their first match in the ICC Test Championship. They went down meekly against New Zealand in the first of the two-match Test series in Wellington. This also turned out to be Virat Kohli and his men’s first Test loss in 14 months. The visitors were bundled out for 191 runs in their second innings and it took only more than an hour for New Zealand to pick last six wickets even as Tim Southee ended up with another five-wicket haul.

    It took only 1.4 overs for the hosts to chase down nine runs in the second innings, the target which India had set for them before getting bowled out. Tom Latham and Tom Blundell didn’t even break a sweat to go past the winning line as the former played a sumptuous drive before his partner completed the formalities. Interestingly, this is also the 100th Test match victory for the Kiwis in their cricket history.

    Southee and Boult run through India again

    Earlier, the day began with a slender of hope for India with Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari holding forte. The duo had to blunt the ball in the first hour before the new ball arrived. But to the visitors’ dismay, their vice-captain was nipped out in the third over of the day itself courtesy Trent Boult. The left-arm seamer came round the wickets to angle the ball into the batsman and Rahane just poked at the delivery to edge it to the keeper.

    Hanuma Vihari then played on an incoming delivery from Tim Southee in the very next over to virtually end India’s hopes. Rishabh Pant was there in the middle but the task was too tough for him to score runs from one end. Though the youngster tried his best along with Ishant Sharma and helped India take the lead. Ravi Ashwin‘s poor Test with the bat ended with Southee pinning him in front of the stumps.

    Ishant too got out in the same fashion to Colin de Grandhomme after which Pant tried to hit out and score some quick runs. But even he couldn’t do much and was caught at fine leg for 25. Southee completed his five-fer and 10-fer in the match in the same over snaffling out Jasprit Bumrah as India got skittled for just 191 runs setting only 9-run target for the home side which they chased down comfortably.

    With the series on the line, India now will have to make amends for their poor show in the first Test. They will also be hoping to grab the 60 points on offer in the Test Championship.
