India scored 258 runs for the loss of 4 wickets on the first day of the first test match against New Zealand. If we look at the track record of the last 8 years, then from the position the Indian team is in, there seems to be a result out of equation. That result is the defeat of Team India. India have not lost their home Test every time they have scored 250 or more runs while batting first since 2013.
Has won on 81% of the times
From 2013 till the start of this match, India has scored 250 runs or more while batting in the first innings of the match 16 times. Team India has won 13 of these Tests. 3 matches have been draws. In 15 of these 16 matches, India won the toss and batted first. At the same time, despite losing the toss once, Team India got to bat first. Sri Lanka had called India to bat first despite winning the toss in 2017. That test was a draw.
Indian spinners become more dangerous
Indian spinners become more dangerous after crossing the 250 mark while batting first. The pitch on Indian grounds becomes more helpful for the spinners with each passing day. In such a situation, when he gets a decent score in the first innings, it is very difficult to stop him.
Ashwin and Jadeja will have a tough time playing
Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have bowled excellently in the 16 matches India has batted first in and scored 250 or more at home since 2013. Ashwin has taken 94 wickets in these 16 matches. At the same time, Jadeja has played 15 of these matches and has taken 65 wickets. Apart from these two, there will also be a spinner challenge from Axar Patel in the Kanpur Test in front of New Zealand. Reverse swing has also been seen on the first day. In such a situation, Umesh Yadav can also create trouble for the visiting team.
