New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson on Thursday said his team will need to make the most of the second new ball when play resumes on the second morning of the first Test against India here.

Their first aim will be to break the flourishing partnership between Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja. By stumps on the first day, the two had put on 113 runs for the fifth wicket to take India to 254 for four, rescuing the hosts after a wobble in the second session.

“Hopefully the new ball swings a little bit in the morning and we can get them. We need a good start in the morning,” Jamieson said after returning with impressive figures of 3 for 47. “India fraction ahead I think. We hung around pretty well,” he said.

On a surface with variable bounce, India did quite well to end the day at 258 for four after losing three wickets in the second session. “Not a huge amount going on. Found some swing early and it was up and down a little bit.”
