1st Test Day 1 Live: Agarwal, Rahane Solid But India Three Down At Lunch

New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl on a green wicket and the decision paid dividends as they finished the first session with three wickets. After Tim Southee removed Prithvi Shaw early for 16, debutant Kyle Jamieson bowled a dream first spell as he sent both Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli packing. Ajinkya Rahane and Mayank Agarwal then put their foot down and built up a decent partnership, taking India to 79/3 at Lunch. Immediately after the toss the covers were briefly put on the wicket as a light shower passed over the Basin Reserve ground. But the match started on time and Prithvi Shaw got off to a flyer, before losing his wicket. Ross Taylor, playing his 100th Test, will be pleased too, having taken the catch to dismiss Virat Kohli. (LIVE SCORECARD)
