India vs New Zealand First Test: Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, the two most experienced batsmen of the Indian team, once again disappointed the fans in the first Test against New Zealand at the Green Park ground in Kanpur. Ajinkya Rahane, who was captaining the team in the absence of Virat Kohli, could not show anything amazing with the batting and scored 35 runs and was clean bowled by Kiwi bowler Jamieson. At the same time, Cheteshwar Pujara also lost his wicket after being set up as usual. In this match, Pujara, who was the vice-captain of Team India, scored 26 runs off 88 balls.

Earlier, Captain Rahane won the toss and decided to bat first. Mumbai’s star batsman Shreyas Iyer, making his Test debut for India, was donned by former great opener Sunil Gavaskar with the India cap. Team India did not have a good start and Karnataka opener Mayank Agarwal, who was returning to the Test after a long time, was dismissed after scoring just 13 runs. At the other end, Shubman Gill hit some catchy shorts as he completed his half-century. It seemed that the young opener was in the mood to play a long innings today, but he became Jameson’s second victim on a personal score of 52 runs.

Indian fans are trolling Rahane and Pujara, who have been going through poor form for a long time, on social media. Some users even said that now the time has come to show them trust in the young players by dropping them from the team.

Shreyas Iyer scored a half-century on his Test debut

Till the last update, Team India has scored 217 runs for the loss of four wickets. Shreyas Iyer, playing his first Test match, impressed everyone and scored the first half-century of his Test career. Iyer and Jadeja have added 70 runs for the fifth wicket and are still at the crease.
