Colin de Grandhomme registered the best figures by a New Zealand debutant after his spell of 6-41 helped the home side seize the early initiative on day two of the first Test against Pakistan in Christchurch. Tahir Whitehead Jersey . The tourists were bowled out for just 133 before an impressive unbeaten 55 from Jeet Raval in his first Test innings helped the home side reach the close on 104-3.Earlier in the day Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl first on a green surface that had spent the previous day under the covers.No play was possible at the Hagley Oval on Thursday because of rain but the home side soon started to make up for lost time once play got under way on day two.Azhar Ali (15) was the first wicket to fall, cleaned up by a gem which nipped back through the gate to send his off stump cartwheeling and give the 30-year-old de Grandhomme a memorable first Test wicket.Tim Southees first four overs were a little wayward but a change of ends worked for him as Sami Aslam edged to Raval at second slip for 19 to make it 53-2.De Grandhomme took two more wickets in the first session after careless drives from Babar Azam (7) and Younis Khan (2) both ended up being caught in the slip cordon as the tourists reached 88 for 4 at lunch.And things didnt get much better for Misbah-ul-Haqs side in the afternoon as Asad Shafiq (16) poked at de Grandhomme to give Raval his third catch of the innings to make it 88 for 5.Sarfraz Ahmed then cut Southee to Todd Astle in the gully for 7 before Trent Boult bowled Mohammad Amir (3) with a vicious outswinger to leave Pakistan reeling on 114-7.Sohail Khan followed shortly after, chipping to Latham at mid-wicket to as de Grandhomme became the eighth New Zealander to take a five wicket haul on Test debut.Misbahs resistance (31 from 108 balls) came to an end when he miscued Boult to Kane Williamson at mid-off.Rahat Ali (0) edged behind as Pakistan were all out for 133 just before tea as de Grandhommes figures of 6-41 eclipsed Alex Moirs spell of six for 155 against England 65 years ago.Then it was the turn of the other debutant Raval to shine as he moved smoothly to 55* from 108 balls at stumps.He was well supported by Henry Nicholls (29 not out) after Tom Latham, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor had all fallen cheaply.The hosts will begin day three 29 runs behind Pakistan but if Raval carries on where he left off the headlines might be dominated by the new boys once again.Watch day three of the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan live on Sky Sports 3 on Friday at 9.30pm. AShawn Robinson Jersey . -- James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and the Houston Rockets dug out of a double-digit, first-half hole to beat the Orlando Magic 101-89 on Wednesday night. Anthony Zettel Jersey . Jacobs scored two in the first end, but Jahr briefly took charge with two in the second end and two more in the third. Jacobs, from Sault. Marie, Ont., gave Canada some breathing room, following his big fourth end by adding two more points in the fifth to go up 7-4. http://www.lionsfanspro.com/Black-Quandre-Diggs-Lions-Jersey.html?cat=912 .Y. - Peyton Manning made his fifth MVP award a family affair.Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke says hes not leaving the company amid speculation that he will be stepping down to look for a new challenge.
