India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ) 2nd Test, Day 2 Highlights: India extended their overall lead to 332 runs after bowling out New Zealand for 62 in their first innings of the second Test here on Saturday. At stumps on the second day, India were 69 for no loss in their second innings. Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara were batting on 38 and 29, respectively, after India decided against enforcing follow-on despite taking a huge first-innings lead of 263 runs. Earlier in the day, New Zealand left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel became only the third player in Test cricket to pick all 10 wickets in an innings in India’s first innings total of 325 all out.

Opener Mayank Agarwal top-scored for the home team with a fine 150, hitting 17 boundaries and four sixes during his long stay in the middle. Axar Patel contributed 52 runs down the order as India crossed 300 before Ajaz wrapped up the innings to finish with incredible figures of 10/119 in 47.5 overs. The Indian bowlers hit back in style to bundle out the visitors for just 62 for a massive lead.

India vs New Zealand 2nd Test, Day 2 Highlights:

17:19 (IST)04 Dec 2021
IND in control as Day 2 ends.

21st over starts. India in firm control of the situation as Pujara and Mayan have found their groove. And Sommerville is hit for a 4 by Mayank in the 4th ball. IND 69/0 after 21 overs. And that's it for the day. Southee pretends to bowl the next over and the light isn't good enough. 

17:05 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Gill update:

Update: Shubman Gill suffered a blow to his right elbow while fielding in the first innings. He has not recovered completely and hence not taken the field as a precautionary measure.

16:55 (IST)04 Dec 2021
50 up

India reach 50 as we go for drinks. The 15th over was bowled by Jamieson and he was punished in the 4th ball. India skipping along nicely. IND 50/0 after 15 overs.

16:37 (IST)04 Dec 2021

11th over was good from the Kiwi perspective as they get a maiden over. And the 12th over ends with a 6. Pujara latches onto the delivery and pulls it over mid-wicket. IND 38/0 after 12 overs.

16:21 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Great shots by Indian openers

The 6th over had a glorious 4 by Pujara and the 7th over played host to another boundary by Mayank. India going steady. 8th over yields 2. IND 26/0 after 8 overs.

16:10 (IST)04 Dec 2021
India steady

India start second innings steady. With Pujara and Mayank Agarwal in the crease, they will hope to get a decent amount of runs on board and declare the innings. 5 gone. IND 16/0 after 5 overs.

16:01 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Brisk start for India!

India are batting again. New Zealand are 263 behind. Shubman Gill has suffered an injury while fielding. Cheteshwar Pujara has walked out with Mayank Agarwal in the middle. A brisk start for the new opening pair of India, they have dealt in boundaries so far. India: 12/0 (2 overs)

15:43 (IST)04 Dec 2021
NZ bowled out for 62

India has bowled out New Zealand for 62. It is New Zealand's lowest ever total against India. Axar Patel gets the wicket of Kyle Jamieson. A sensational catch from Shreyas Iter at the silly point after it took a deflection from Saha's gloves. NZ: 62 all out (28.1 overs)

15:38 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Ashwin gets his 4th!

R Ashwin gets his fourth wicket as William Somerville is gone without scoring. A 26-ball duck for Somerville, who danced down the wicket to play an aggressive short, he only managed to chip it down to Siraj at mid-on.  NZ: 62/9 (28 overs)

15:13 (IST)04 Dec 2021

Ashwin adds two more to his tally! He first scalps the wicket of Blundell (8) off a catch by Pujara at leg slip. Two balls later, Southee (0) walks back. Suryakumar at forward short leg dives to his left to take the catch. NZ: 53/8 (20 overs)

15:02 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Jamieson, Blundell in the middle

Jamieson (2*) and Blundell (3*) restart proceedings in the third session. The former takes a single. NZ: 40/6 (18 overs)

14:39 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Tea break!

Jayant sends Ravindra back to the pavilion on 4 off a catch by Kohli! The batter tries to defend with his bat forward but the ball turns, gets an outside edge and straight into the laps of the skipper at slip. And that's tea! NZ: 38/6 (16.4 overs)

14:26 (IST)04 Dec 2021

And it goes from bad to worse! Ashwin comes into the attack and strikes on his very first ball! The ball sneaks through the gap between the bat and the pad of Nicholls (7) and the off-stump goes! A very dire situation. NZ: 31/5 (13.1 overs)

14:20 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Nicholls, Blundell hold fort for visitors

Nicholls (4*) and Blundell (0*) are taking it very slow, resorting to just defence. India in control. NZ: 28/4 (12 overs)

14:03 (IST)04 Dec 2021

New Zealand are crumbling like a pack of cards now! Axar joins the party as his spin traps Mitchell (8) between the wickets! The batter takes a review but it shows three reds, with the ball crashing into middle. NZ: 27/4 (8.1 overs)

13:48 (IST)04 Dec 2021

On a roll now! Taylor walks back to the pavilion on 1 after being cleaned up by Siraj! A brilliant delivery which uproots the batter's off-stump. On the hattrick ball, Nicholls survives a LBW call, courtesy of a review. NZ: 17/3 (5.2 overs)

13:36 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Siraj scalps two wickets in same over!

Again! Latham (10) tries to hook Siraj's delivery and it's easily caught by Shreyas at deep square leg. NZ: 15/2 (4 overs)

13:31 (IST)04 Dec 2021

There's the early breakthrough! Siraj strikes as he brings an end to Young's stay in the middle! The pacer's delivery has some extra bounce and Young gets an outside edge. Kohli, right of second slip, dives and catches it! NZ: 10/1 (3.1 overs)

13:24 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Young hits first boundary!

Young announces himself to the scene quite confidently as he punishes Siraj with the first boundary of the innings! The batter leans and then clips the ball in front of square on the on-side. On the other end, Latham's on 2*. NZ: 6/0 (2 overs)

13:18 (IST)04 Dec 2021
Latham, Young open for NZ!

Tom Latham and Will Young open the innings for New Zealand. Umesh Yadav starts the proceedings with the ball.
