EVEN before a single ball was bowled in the first Test between India and New Zealand in Kanpur, there were a lot of talks about the importance of spinners. The line-up of both teams with three spinners each gave a fair picture of what to expect in the Test. It was quite understandable with the past history of Green Park track, which has assisted spinners as early as Day 1.

If it was Kyle Jamieson on the opening day, Tim Southee, who bowled in the right channels, scalped four wickets (and one on Day 1) on Friday. It was the experienced pacer’s spell, which brought back the Kiwis into the game with India skidding from 258/4 to 345 all out.
