India's Kanpur Green Park stadium - last 10 Test stats.
I wasn't aux fais with this venue so decided to go back a little in history to see how India progressed in their first innings on the park given BLACKCAPS restriction of their much vaunted hosts. I have tallied the last ten tests at the venue dating back to 1979.
There doesn't appear to be any consistency, though India's last 6 innings have seen a decided increase in first innings totals, against all opposition, and wins.
10 innings - 1 loss, 5 drawn and 4 wins out of last 5 matches.
Scores (1 = Bat first, 2 Bat second)
