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.
