New Zealand captain Ross Taylor kept his promise of attacking India's spinners by smashing an entertaining hundred as the visitors reached 328 for six at the close of the first day of the second and final test in Bangalore on Friday.
Kruger van Wyk (63 not out) and Doug Bracewell (30 not out) carried on the good work after Taylor's dismissal, adding an unbeaten 82 runs for sixth wicket before bad light ended play 35 minutes early.
The 28-year-old Taylor had promised a positive approach at the Chinnaswamy Stadium after New Zealand lost 18 wickets to the Indian spinners in the first test in Hyderabad, which the hosts won by an innings and 115 runs to go 1-0 up in the two-test series.In Image: India's captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, left, and teammate Virat Kohli, right, appeal unsuccessfully for the wicket of New Zealand batsman Kruger van Wyk, center
