IND vs NZ: 1st Test Day 3 Review
Brief Scorecard: India: 14-1 (Cheteshwar Pujara 9*; Kyle Jamieson 1/8) &
345 all out in 111.1 overs (Shreyas Iyer 105, Shubman Gill 52, Ravindra Jadeja 50; Tim Southee 5/69)
New Zealand: 296 in 142.3 overs (Will Young 89, Tom Latham 95; Axar Patel 5/62)
The Indian spinners dominated the day after a 151-run opening stand between Young and Latham. Throughout their combination, Young and Latham were calm and confident, battling the Indian bowlers for a long time. Williamson and Latham took it upon themselves to raise the total to 197 until a Umesh Yadav ball skidded onto Williamson’s pads at the stroke of lunch.
The home team dominated the post-lunch session, with wickets falling at vital moments. Following the dismissals of Taylor and Nicholls, the Indians went on a rampage. Axar Patel extended his golden run in advantageous home conditions, claiming another five-wicket haul to put India in the driving seat after New Zealand were bowled out for 296.
The left-arm spinner severely derailed New Zealand’s solid first innings. Ravichandran Ashwin was also accurate, moving closer to being India’s third-highest wicket-taker in Tests. Kyle Jamieson meanwhile became the quickest Kiwi bowler to 50 Test wickets as he knocked out Gill.
