Kyle Jamieson to Mayank Agarwal, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Mayank Agarwal departs and the Kiwis have drawn first blood early in the morning session. Kyle Jamieson has been probing and making life difficult for the Indian openers and he reaps rewards for his hard work here. Can't say that he hasn't deserved this honestly. He keeps pushing with the same line and length and gets rid of Agarwal. Back-of-a-length delivery again, on the fourth stump line, the ball lands and curls away. Mayank Agarwal, like he has been all morning, looks for the tentative poke but only manages a thin feather, which is gobbled up by Tom Blundell behind the sticks. Agarwal has a chat with Gill but he opts not to take the review.
