Live updates of day two of the opening test between the Black Caps and India in Kanpur.

New Zealand will start day two reasonably happy with the state of the game in Kanpur.

After all, they pulled back a potentially awkward situation to restrict India to 291 for nine. At 154 for one, India were poised to streak out of sight. New Zealand's bowlers stuck to their job in the second and third sessions and got a solid reward.

The first session had produced one for 105 off 31 overs; but the second (80 for three) and especially the third (106 for five) went New Zealand's way.

The problem is, batting isn't about to get any easier. The turn was already there on the first day; New Zealand must bat last in this test and it won't be a picnic, even by day three.
