And 52 races since the last two wickets have extended the Kiwis advantage to 183 races. Trent Boult threw his bat at everything and everything scoring a 38 of 24 balls to thwart the Indians.

Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor combined to ensure that New Zealand had an advantage in the first inning, but the advantage was not overwhelming.
India kept hunting with three wickets in the final session, including Williamson for 89 and Taylor for 44 and the wicket showed early signs of spinning.
Williamson and Taylor’s 93-run position for the third wicket was enough to lift New Zealand from 73-2 to be ahead of 165 in India before tourists defend themselves.
When the bad light brought an early end of the day, New Zealand was 216 for five, leading by 51.
Ishant Sharma, returning from an injury and struggling with the time lag after arriving in New Zealand, was chosen by Indian bowlers with three of 31 of 15 out of 15.
However, with the initial fading of the green cover from the wicket, there were early turn signs that could affect New Zealand’s last bat in the match.
