The second day’s play was called off early as rain washed out the entire last session in the first Test between India and New Zealand in Kanpur. The umpires called for covers at the Tea break and as rain continued, play was called off an hour before schedule close of play.

Earlier, unbeaten fifties by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Tom Latham, who shared an unbeaten stand of 117 runs, led their team to 152/1 at Tea. The visitors still trail India by 166 runs. Williamson (65*) reached his 23rd Test fifty while Latham (56*) made his eighth Test fifty.

The Indian spin duo of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja created some problems in the second session with both turning the ball sharply. But both Williamson and Latham denied them any wicket. The only wicket that fell on Day 2 was that of Martin Guptill when he was trapped LBW by Umesh Yadav. The play will resume early on Day 3.
