New Zealand take the Wellington Test and thereby ensure that they won't lose the two-match series but it is the series win that will spur the home side at Christchurch, where Neil Wagener will return to the squad. India will have lot to ponder in the days ahead of the second Test if they have to restore parity and register an important away win. The second Test might still be a few days away, more cricketing action coming your way as India meet Bangladesh today in the Women's T20 World Cup, do follow our website for all the coverage. Until we meet next, it is a goodbye from us.

Kane Williamson, winning captain: Outstanding effort over the space of four days. We know how strong India are all around the world. The effort in the first innings and then a competitive total with the bat was great. The lower order runs are important to get a bit of a lead. So allround team effort. Didn't know what to expect from the pitch on the morning of the Test. I suppose, because it wasn't as windy this week, there was a bit more swing. The bowlers were brilliant but a real team effort. Kyle was brilliant. he has been throughout the summer, in white-ball cricket as well. He has made his effort with ball, bat and in the field. So great debut for Kyle, contributed in a number of ways. Southee's mindset wasn't of one with a point to prove. He wanted to operate as best as He just wanted to lead with the ball. Having his good mate (Boult) at the other end was good help for him too. Left-arm, right-arm combination can be wonderful. We know India can bat for days, so many world class players the patience both of them showed was great. Blundell's injury is alright, he said his pain level is 2/10, so that's fairly good.

05:53 (IST)

Virat Kohli: The toss turned out to be very important. We were not competitive enough. The first innings lead put us under a lot of pressure. Overall, we did put in a good effort but we could've had more discipline. You don't want to be too hard on guys. Prithvi  played just two overseas Tests. He'll figure it out his way. He will score runs. 

05:52 (IST)

Southee, Player of the Match: Great win. I think to beat Indian side is very pleasing. Pleasant change coming back to home conditions. Effort throughout everyone was great. Think this morning was a massive time in the game, we were looking to get couple of wickets before the new ball. A little less wind around, it tends to swing a bit more. The more you back you get back into the rhythm. Reasonably happy as a bowling unit to take 20 wickets. The pitch had a little bit more there than usual. Tennis-ball bounce.

05:45 (IST)

Yet another disappointing Test defeat for India outside the sub-continent. Yes, toss was a huge factor here and the visitors were pegged back early by batting first under challenging circumstances. However, when they did get their chance second time around they should have shown better resistance. You cannot blame the external factors for that.

Latest Updates, 1st Test, Day 4 India vs New Zealand: That's it! Blundell with the winning runs! Flicked away through square leg to register 10-wicket win over the number 1 ranked Indian side.

Day 3 report: Trent Boult followed up his counter-attacking cameo innings of 38 to take three wickets, including that of Virat Kohli, to put New Zealand on top against India at the end of the third day of the first Test on Sunday.

The visitors, who had not lost any of their seven previous International Cricket Council World Test Championship matches, were 144-4 at the close of play at the Basin Reserve, still 39 runs behind and staring at their potential first defeat.

India’s hopes on Monday will rest with vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, who was on 25, and Hanuma Vihari (15), with Rishabh Pant and Ravichandran Ashwin the only remaining players likely capable of building a total they can defend.

Boult added it was too early to determine what kind of total they would be comfortable chasing with India still having some resistance in their lineup.

“I hope I don’t have to bat again,” he said with a grin.

“If I do my job we won’t be chasing too much. It’s a very good wicket (and) we know that we have to be on the ball.

“We can’t be walking around feeling we’re well ahead of the game because there is a lot of cricket to be played.”

Boult added dismissing Kohli for 19 had been important in putting pressure on India’s batting lineup.

“Almost every time we miss, he hits and he hits it well and gets boundaries,” Boult said.

“From our point of view, we were trying to dry that up and for me personally using the wicket and the shorter ball was a good plan to try and control his run rate.”

The hosts had established a 183-run first innings lead after they were dismissed for 348 before lunch with Colin de Grandhomme, debutant Kyle Jamieson and Boult counter-attacking to bolster their advantage.

De Grandhomme and Jamieson put on 71 runs before Boult then shared in a 38-run, 10th-wicket stand with Ajaz Patel, who held up the other end as the pace bowler scored all of the runs in their partnership.

“Batsmen don’t get out anymore,” Ashwin told reporters of the stubborn resistance by New Zealand’s bowlers. “Lower order batters do put a price on their wickets.”

Ashwin also said it was too early to determine what direction the match might go.

“There’s six sessions to go in the game and we’re not even at the stage where we can think about what’s a good score to defend,” he added.

“If you can get as close to the first innings score as they did then we might present ourselves an opportunity to do something, but that’s very far away in the game.”
