Sehwag, Dravid hit centuries as India dominates

Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid produced centuries in contrasting styles to help India dominate the opening day of the first test against New Zealand on Thursday.
Sehwag made a well-paced 173 while Dravid compiled a steady 104 as the home side reached 329-3 after electing to bat first on a good batting pitch at the Sardar Patel Stadium.
Sachin Tendulkar (13) and VVS Laxman (7) were not out at the close.
Top-ranked India is the favorite in the three-test series, having just beaten Australia 2-0 in a two-test home series.
The remaining two tests are to be held in Hyderabad and Nagpur.
