India vs New Zealand, Highlights, 2nd Test in Christchurch, Day 3, Full Cricket Score: Black Caps win, sweep series 2-0

Latest Updates, 2nd Test, Day 3 India vs New Zealand: Jadeja comes in from the other end. Taylor collects a single off the first ball of the over, with Nicholls tapping the ball around for the next three deliveries without scoring a run. India decide to go for the review after an unsuccessful caught-behind appeal against Nicholls off the fifth delivery, and it turns out to be a front-foot no-ball that brings the equation down to just one run. Nicholls collects the winning single off the last delivery, as New Zealand win by seven wickets. The Black Caps thus register their 101st Test victory to complete a 2-0 series scoreline against the No 1-ranked Indian side!Well the Indian skipper decides to have a bowl now (wearing his shades while doing so), and starts off with a delivery that moves away after pitching wide outside off. Nicholls gets off the mark with a boundary off the fourth ball, steering a full delivery outside off through point. Just three more needed now.

And that concludes another disappointing tour for India in the SENA nations as India follow their 5-0 sweep over the Black Caps in the T20Is with 0-3 and 0-2 reversals in the ODIs and Tests respectively. Despite them still being No 1 in the longest format as well as on top of the ICC Test Championship points table, the two defeats once again poses some questions to Virat Kohli and Co on their ability to win matches in tough away conditions against tough sides. Full credit to Kane Williamson's side for the way they bounced back after the disappointments in the 20-over contests, and they now find themselves at the second spot in the ICC Test team rankings for their hard work and smart planning.

We hope you enjoyed our coverage of the tour of New Zealand. The Indian team flies back home for a short limited-overs contest against South Africa before the Indian Premier League gets underway later this month. For now, it's a goodbye from us.

Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain: Outstanding. Both equally sporting surfaces. I guess underlies the value of the partnerships we had. I don't think the end result implies how tight the match was. Fantastic series from our side in terms of our efforts with the bat and ball. (On Jamieson) Very exciting talent. Obviously contributed incredibly well both with bat and ball. Complemented the attack nicely. The extra bounce on these surfaces was helpful. The runs he scored at the backend were incredibly valuable. The guys had to be disciplined, and the wicket was doing enough. They were able to execute their plans for long periods of time. Collectively they were outstanding in these last couple of games. (Looking back at the summer) A number of good bits and learning curves. You're always trying to improve, and these two games were opportunities to take steps forward.

Tim Southee is Player of the Series. He took 14 wickets in Test series. 

08:34 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: I think it was a matter of not having intent in first game. Small margins here. You have to give credit to New Zealand bowlers. I think it was combination of not playing well and New Zealand bowling well. It was just not enough done by batsmen in series for bowling unit to put up a fight. We bowled really well. If you feel like, as a batting unit, you are not backing up the bowlers, then it is disappointing. We need to go back to drawing board and see what needs to be done. Toss can be a factor but we are not a side which thinks like that. As an international side, you are expected to deliver in any conditions. If we want to keep winning away from home, we need to keep doing that. T20s were pretty good. In ODIs also, youngsters stepped up when Rohit and I could not deliver. But here in Tests, we were not at par with New Zealand. If we deny that, we are not going to improve. We are going to take this on chin and try to improve.

08:29 (IST)

Kyle Jamieson is the Player of the Match for his all-round effort!

Kyle Jamieson: Its been pretty surreal couple of weeks just being part of the group. It's a real privilege being part of this group. Pitch conditions give you a wee bit of help. I guess it's just allowing the natural variations to take over. (On his batting skills) It's certainly something I try to work on, the runs down the order are so crucial and can make a massive difference. This is where I want to be.

08:20 (IST)

So there it is. Formalities are done and dusted. Another series defeat for India in SENA countries. They have been completely outplayed in these two Tests. Think this Test series has been more one-sided than the 2002-03 one. Hardly any positive for them whatsoever. In hindsight, New Zealand with 120 points from this series are now back on track in the World Test Championship.

Latest Updates, 2nd Test, Day 3 India vs New Zealand: Jadeja comes in from the other end. Taylor collects a single off the first ball of the over, with Nicholls tapping the ball around for the next three deliveries without scoring a run. India decide to go for the review after an unsuccessful caught-behind appeal against Nicholls off the fifth delivery, and it turns out to be a front-foot no-ball that brings the equation down to just one run. Nicholls collects the winning single off the last delivery, as New Zealand win by seven wickets. The Black Caps thus register their 101st Test victory to complete a 2-0 series scoreline against the No 1-ranked Indian side!

Day 2 report: India stormed back into the second and final Test against New Zealand on Sunday, taking all 10 wickets to dismiss the hosts for 235 and extending their slender lead to 97 by the close of play on day two at Hagley Oval.

The match remained very much in the balance, however, after the Black Caps ran through the Indian top order to reduce the tourists to 90 for six at stumps on an extraordinary day when 16 wickets fell.

Hanuma Vihari (five not out) and Rishabh Pant, who had scored a single off a thick edge, will resume on Monday looking to give their attack something to bowl at in New Zealand’s second innings.

Already 1-0 down in the series after a thumping 10-wicket defeat in Wellington and under pressure after a final-session batting collapse on day one, India needed something special to get back into the match.

Their bowlers provided it by firing for the first time on this tour, ripping through New Zealand’s top order with seam and swing in the first session and mopping up the tail after some stiff resistance in the second.

Mohammed Shami took 4-81, Jasprit Bumrah finished with 3-62 and spin-bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja pitched in with a couple of wickets and an astonishing catch to winkle out Neil Wagner.

New Zealand, who resumed on 63 without loss looking to rack up a big lead over India’s first-innings 242, lost their 10 wickets for the addition of just 172 runs.

Opener Tom Latham (52) managed to reach his 17th test half-century as wickets tumbled around him, before leaving a Shami delivery that nipped in to rattle his leg stump.

Wagner hit 21 but Shami got him too when Jadeja, at deep square, leapt into the air and plucked a ball that looked destined for the boundary clean out of the sky.

“I was standing at deep square leg and I knew he was going to hit that ball but I didn’t know it was going to come at double pace with the wind,” Jadeja said.

“The ball was coming too quickly, I just put my hand there and it stuck. I didn’t realise I’d made the catch.”

Kyle Jamieson marshalled the rearguard action with a gritty 49 and he was the last wicket to fall as India took a slender first-innings lead of seven runs that had looked highly unlikely when play started.

New Zealand’s attack would have been licking their lips watching the movement the Indians were getting and they took full advantage of the conditions when they got their chance.

None of the Indian top-order were able to get a start in the face of a hostile barrage of short-bowling with Virat Kohli’s batting slump continuing.

Trent Boult (3-12) and Tim Southee had already combined to remove openers Mayank Agarwal (3) and Prithvi Shaw (14) when Colin de Grandhomme trapped Kohli in front for 14, leaving the India captain with 38 runs from his four innings in the series.

“The bowlers pitched the ball up nicely and got rewards,” Boult said. “(I) feel we are in a decent position and it’s going to be another big push tomorrow."

“We are all enjoying hunting out there as a pack. The bowling unit is very clear with how they are trying to target the opposition.”
