India superstars Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara were among the victims as New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson caused havoc on his Test debut in Wellington.
The 25-year-old quick rocked India’s top order on the opening day of the first Test, dismissing Pujara for 11 and Kohli for two before rounding out his haul with Hanuma Vihari shortly after.
The six-foot eight-inch Jamieson ensured Kane Williamson’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss paid early dividends, while Ross Taylor marked his landmark 100th Test cap – and the formation of an exclusive new club – with the slip catch to dismiss Kohli.
Fellow seamers Trent Boult and Tim Southee also got in on the action, claiming a scalp each before rain brought an early end to the opening day’s play.
