The first Test between India and New Zealand ended in a draw in Kanpur after the Kiwis put on a gritty display for the last wicket to deny the hosts what looked like a guaranteed win. Following the match, members of the cricket fraternity took to Twitter to congratulate both sides and also appreciate the beauty of Test cricket.
Mumbai Should Be a Cracker:
Test Cricket is best cricket. Epic effort by New Zealand to save the test match. Well tried India. Mumbai should be a cracker.

All told, draw was a good result for NZ after conceding crucial first innings and having to bat last on pitch of inconsistent bounce. That said, their batting strategy was baffling, surrendering initiative in both innings with uncalled for defensiveness.

Fascinating game of ebbs and flows, NZ reiterated why they are such a hard aide to beat. India will be disappointed at falling just short, but they can be proud of how they plugged away on a slow track. #NzvInd
