‘It’s amazing to witness New Zealand’s defiant mentality,’ says Kane Williamson.

During the second session of the final day, when his team eked out a draw, the captain admits trying for a win was “off the cards.”

India has won 19 tosses in Tests at home since the start of 2013. With the exception of two weather-affected draws. They have won 16 matches, with only one being decided by less than 100 runs.

This Kanpur draw in the 19th Test is probably the best performance by a team. In the face of arguably the most difficult hurdle in Test cricket today. Facing India in India and losing the toss. It’s difficult enough to play India in India, but once they get their first taste of the pitch, it’s a nightmare, as these statistics illustrate.

The New Zealand captain, could be pleased with his team’s performance, especially after arriving with a “disjointed” preparation. That final product was created with a lot of love and labor.

Having said that. There were numerous contributions throughout the game that kept us in the game for extended periods of time. Especially after losing the toss. Wriddhiman Saha scoring the fifty and putting them back on the front foot and allowing them to declare and try to fight for that winning result was a really solid partnership.

“It was incredibly good for us to have that experience of going out, batsmen spending time in the middle, and bowlers getting some overs under their belt after a rather disjointed preparation. It’s vital that we make quick adjustments once more. We’re heading somewhere new, and it’ll be interesting.”

New Zealand’s defiant mentality

With 14 wickets between them on a surface where India’s spinners did all the damage. Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson kept New Zealand in the game.

That brought up the old debate of whether it was necessary to play two spinners in India instead of your best bowlers, even if it meant bringing in a third seamer. Ajaz Patel and William Somerville, Williamson’s spinners, were guarded there.

“I mean, you’re constantly trying to respond to circumstances.” Williamson explained. “Our spinners have performed admirably for us in a number of games and in these kind of conditions.” They’ll be lot better for the hit out there, in my opinion. They’ve both returned from Auckland, where they’d been confined to their homes for a few weeks. As a result, they’ve been rushing to get some overs under their belts.

“However, they did make significant contributions with the bat and the ball.” The way the two seamers worked together was simply incredible, and it gave us a fighting chance in this match.

“Throughout the sessions, India managed to put us under a lot of pressure. Scoring was difficult to come by, and there was a lot of maneuvering around low bounce and spinning balls. It would have been fantastic to strive to reach near to the target result if everything had gone perfectly. However, I believe that was immediately ruled out after the second session. Then we witnessed a lot of contributions from the boys, who really knuckled down and fought hard to end up with a draw. For us, that was the best option.”
