Default New Zealand tour of India, 2012

Pitch: Looks pretty dry, grass has been shaved off. Bit of dampness. Will take turn fairly soon. If you lose the toss and bowl first, you might still have a chance with some swing, says Craig McMillan.
8.30am: Nice and early. Good morning everyone and welcome to the coverage of the first day of a long home season for India. They're at Hyderabad for the first of two Tests, against New Zealand. Clear skies. Toss is at 9, the first ball 30 mins later.
Speaking of India and New Zealand, there's another game happening live. The Under-19s are playing the World Cup semi-final at Townsville. I hope the seniors here are keeping a ear out to what's happening there. India have been kept to a competitive 209 at the break. My colleague Venkat Raghav is tracking that. Follow it here.
The talking point is the Indian batting order. Evidence points towards Pujara at No.3, Kohli at No.5 and Raina at 6. Ganguly, on TV, reckons Kohli should come in at 3, because he's done it with flair in the one-dayers. Pujara is surely playing, he says. He doesn't want to reveal his position yet. We should find out soon.

So weird to see only Sachin in there. He must feel lonely.

Now there will be extra pressure on him. No Dravid or Lax to save his ***.

yeah only sachin in the middle order, sehwag still there though. must be a different feel for sachin but i'm sure he'll be fine, if pujara and kohli can consistently do what they did yesterday then sachin shouldn't feel to much pressure. as far as raina goes i really think they should be trying someone else for now, plenty of talent there i mean they have rahane and tiwary and others sitting on the sidelines, raina has had a good number of matches and has struggled so give one of them their turn.

Always knew Pujura would do well. The guy showed a lot of resilience in the tour of SA. He has a hunger to score runs and will be a run machine for India. Really should be playing all 3 formats.

the young batting talents will do well they just need to be given enough time to settle in. but for now no more sharma or raina please.

this NZ team is definitely weaker than BD
lost five wckts for 100 something against Ind bowling attack is laughable.

5 wickets under 100 runs in a session was just not on the cards

As expected; a one-sided series against in India in India with probably the weakest NZ team to date.

I don't really see anybody standing out though apart from Pujura and Kohli. Rahane has tailed off, Tiwary has some flaws in his game that will get exposed as he plays more, likewise for Badrinath. So I think they have to live with Raina and Sharma for now.

I wish we could play NZ in Tests. I feel we could definitely beat this team.
