New Zealand vs India, Day 2 of the second Test match at Bangalore and Tim Southee leads the Black Caps' charge against the hosts. Virender Sehwag flatters to deceive, while Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni rescue the Men in Blue.

Second day's highlights:

# Virat Kohli has posted four fifty-plus scores in his last five innings - the scores being 75, 116 & 22 against Australia and 58 & 93 not out against New Zealand.

# Kohli's second fifty against New Zealand is his fifth in Tests.  His superb unbeaten 93 is his second highest score in Tests - the highest is 116 against Australia at Adelaide in January 2012.

# Suresh Raina (55 off 90 balls) has registered his seventh fifty in Tests - his first fifty against New Zealand.

# Raina's above innings is his second half-century in nine innings in India - his highest is 86 against Australia at Mohali in 2010-11.

# Tim Southee (3/35) has recorded his best bowling figures against India, eclipsing the three for 119 at Hyderabad in November 2010.

# New Zealand (365) have recorded their highest total against India at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.

# Pragyan Ojha (5/99) has recorded his third five-wicket haul in Tests - his first two instances were against the West Indies.

# Ojha became the third Indian bowler to take five wickets or more in an innings against New Zealand at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.  He has joined Narendra Hirwani - 6/59 in November 1988  and Anil Kumble - 5/81 in October 1995.

# Doug Bracewell (43 off 79 balls) has posted his career-best score in Tests.

# Kohli and Dhoni were associated in an unbroken stand of 104 - India's highest sixth wicket partnership at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.

# The above stand is the fourth partnership of 100 or more for the sixth wicket at M.Chinaswamy Stadium -  two for Australia and one each for Pakistan and India.

# The 'bowled' dismissal is Sachin's 50th in Tests.  Two players have recorded more 'bowled' dismissals in Tests than Sachin - Rahul Dravid (55) and Allan Border (53).

# Kruger van Wyk (71 off 100 balls) has recorded his highest score in Tests.
