New Zealand 129 without loss at stumps against India

New Zealand stamped their authority on the second day of the first Test with an unfinished 129-run opening stand at stumps in reply to India's first-innings 345 all out Friday.

Openers Tom Latham on 50 and Will Young on 75 survived 41 overs of spin by Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel after Tim Southee's five-for on Friday checked the Indian advance after debutant Shreyas Iyer's maiden century.
