Shreyas Iyer hit his maiden Test ton before Ravichandran Ashwin frustrated the New Zealand bowlers in the first session on Day Two of the opening Test against New Zealand on Friday.

In the first session on Day Two, India scored 81 runs and lost four wickets. The hosts ended the opening session at 339/8 with Ashwin and Umesh Yadav unbeaten on 38 and 4 respectively here at the Green Park Stadium.

Shreyas completed his maiden ton but it was Southee who rose to the occasion and broke the 121-run stand between the centurion and Ravindra Jadeja. However, Ashwin played a gutsy knock to make sure India remained firm at the crease at the cusp of lunch.

Resuming the day from 258/4, India started off confidently but Southee drew the first blood on Friday as he removed Ravindra Jadeja in the 87th over.

However, Shreyas continued his fine form and hit his maiden Test ton. He became the 16th men's player to score a hundred on Test debut for India.

Southee, meanwhile helped New Zealand comeback as he dimissed Wriddhiman Saha and Shreyas in quick succession.

The right-handed pacer then came back to dismiss Axar Patel as India got reduced to 313/8.

Earlier on Day One, Shreyas and Ravindra Jadeja registered half-centuries as India dominated on Thursday.

India ended Day One at 258/4 after being down to 154/4 in the second session.

In the third and final session of Day One on Thursday, Shreyas and Jadeja ensured that India do not lose any more wickets before the close of play.

Brief Scores: India 339/8 (Shreyas Iyer 105, Ravindra Jadeja 50; Tim Southee 5-69) vs New Zealand. (ANI)
