Playing under overcast conditions, New Zealand's pace battery made early inroads into the India batting line-up at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Day 2.
Cheteshwar Pujara tried to pull a Tim Southee bouncer to the fence. The ball hung in the air for long only to be taken by Trent Boult in the deep.
Much was expected from Sachin Tendulkar to put India back on track. But he was undone by Doug Bracewell.
Suresh Raina played the repair man's role to bring back India's first innings on track. He fell to Tim Southee after a 90-ball 55.
Doug Bracewell bowled well and took the two important wickets of Virender and Sachin Tendulkar after the lunch break.
Virat Kohli joined forces with Suresh Raina first, and MS Dhoni later to resurrect India's innings. He is batting on 93.
MS Dhoni didn't let the momentum slow down after he came in at the fall of Suresh Raina. He remained unbeaten on 46 with five boundaries and two sixes.
