8:17pm - 3 overs
Ishant stays around the wicket to Latham.
2.1 - Straight, and Latham defends.
2.2 - Straight again, and Latham gets forward to defend. Clearly a plan to bowl straight at Latham, looking for LBW.
2.3 - Just like that! Latham's struck on the pad, given out and reviews it straight away! Has he hit it? He has. Latham survives.
2.4 - Full, and Latham drives through backward point to get off the mark with a boundary!

2.6 - Young to face Ishant for the first time. Wide, and Young leaves it alone.
8:11pm - 2 overs
Umesh Yadav takes the ball from the other end. Can't remembe the last time India opened the bowling with two quicks at home, some real 4D chess going on from the hosts. Will Young takes guard.

Ajinkya Rahane leads India in their huddle, as Latham and Young arrive at the crease.
Will India open the bowling with seam or spin? It looks like it'll be Ishant to take the new cherry.
Southee leads the Blackcaps off the field, his 5/69 doing the bulk of the damage, backed up by Jamieson (3/91) and Ajaz (2/90).
But now the real challenge begins. The Blackcaps will need to bat well on this surface, which will help India's spinners without question.
We'll be back in around 10 minutes for the New Zealand first innings.
7:52pm - 111.1 overs
Ajaz stays on to Ishant.
111.1 - WICKET! And that should be the end of it. Ishant's trapped on the pad, and given out LBW bang in front. He reviews straight away, more in hope than expectation. Three reds. Ishant's out for a duck. India are all out for 345.
7:49pm - 111 overs

109.1 - Wide to start, Ashwin looks to hammer it through point but can only hit it into the ground.
109.2 - WICKET! And Ajaz strikes second ball! Ashwin looks to give himself some room, but misses completely. The ball hits the footmark, and turns to clatter into middle and leg. Ashwin goes for 38, Ishant Sharma is the last man in.
109.3 - First ball for Ishant, and he leaves it outside off.
109.4 - Full from Ajaz and Ishant defends.
109.5 - Full again, and an inside edge evades Latham at short leg.
109.6 - Ajaz hones in on the front pad, but Ajaz defends.
We're back after the break. How big can India go in the afternoon? Ashwin will be the key, but he's running out of partners with the bat.
7:03pm - LUNCH
The Blackcaps' session, led by Southee. NZ took 4/81 this morning, but India are threatening another fightback with this partnership.
Terrifying signs for the Kiwi batters, with more than one ball keeping low from the spin of Ajaz.
We'll be back in about 40 minutes for the afternoon session.

92.6 - Wide and swinging away to finish, Iyer leaves.
5:39pm - 92 overs
Jamieson continues, Iyer on 98.
91.1 - Outside edge past a diving Latham, and that should be two runs to deep point! Iyer comes back for the second and completes a century on test debut! The 16th Indian to achieve the feat. He removes his helment and kisses the badge, a great knock so far.

Right then, Jadeja takes guard to face the first over of the day. Southee will take the ball. Can he find some early swing to start the day? Around the wicket to start.
84.1 - First ball of the day, wide and left by Jadeja.
84.2 - Wide again to follow, and Jadeja leaves it again.
84.3 - Wide with the third ball too, no real movement. Jadeja is happy to leave it alone.
84.4 - A little bit of movement back into the left-hander, but wide enough for Jadeja to leave.
84.5 - Straight from Southee, and he hits Jadeja on the pad! Huge appeal for LBW, but it's turned down. Williamson reviews. Potentially going over the top of the stumps. Clipping the top of the bails, but not enough to reverse the decision. Another umpire's call goes against the Blackcaps.
84.6 - Straight, and Jadeja defends to point. Maiden over.
The Blackcaps' bowlers are going through their warm-ups ahead of the day's play, as are India's spinners.
Interestingly, Ravindra Jadeja is warming up with the ball rather than with the bat. Make of that what you will.
Kane Williamson leads the Blackcaps out to the wicket, followed by Shreyas Iyer and Jadeja.
Play to resume shortly.
In better news for the Blackcaps, Tim Southee looks to have overcome any injury woes that troubled him on day one.
He'll need to be on-song from the word go, this new ball is just four overs old.
Looking at the pitch, the cracks that were present on day one have started to open up, which will have India's spin trio licking their lips.
This surface should be alright early today, but the longer this test goes, the harder it will be to bat.
And chances are the Blackcaps are going to have to bat last to win.
Word from the ground is that play will start on time - despite yesterday's lost overs.
I guess the hosts are confident of not needing five days...
So that'll be first ball from 5pm (NZ time) then.
Good afternoon! We lost six overs yesterday due to bad light, so we're expecting play to get underway a little earlier than 5pm to make up for lost time.
No official word yet on an early start though, so stay tuned!
Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's live updates of the first test between the Blackcaps and India from Kanpur.
Well, after day one bragging rights slipped between Kiwi fingers, the Blackcaps need to take early wickets in order to restrict India from reaching a first-innings score nearing 400.
The hosts resume at 258/4, thanks to an unbeaten partnership of 113 runs between debutant Shreyas Iyer (75 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja (50 not out).
Kyle Jamieson led the way for New Zealand on day one, taking three of the four wickets to fall, with Tim Southee taking the other - despite appearing to suffer a hip flexor injury in the afternoon session.
Worryingly though, the Kiwi spin trio failed to have the impact needed on a pitch that took turn inside the opening 10 overs, with Ajaz Patel, Will Somerville and debutant Rachin Ravindra all ending day one wicketless.
India will likely look to bat until the evening session at the very least, if they're able to, before they almost certainly have a crack at the Blackcaps' top order with their three-pronged spin attack later in the day.
These two sides met at this same venue four years ago, where India's spinners took 16 of the available 20 wickets, with Kane Williamson was the only Kiwi batter in the current XI to pass 50. India went on to win that test by 197 runs.
TAB odds: NZ $13.50, India $1.24, draw $4.35
