Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin Turn Tables On NZ On Day 3

Share

Ravindra Jadeja lived up to his reputation of being a deadly accurate spinner on Indian tracks by picking up his 5th five-wicket haul in Tests today. Along with Ashwin (4/93), Jadeja bundled the Kiwis out for just 262 in the post lunch session on Day 3. The visitors lost their last 5 wickets within a span of 7 runs, and handed India a surprising 56-run lead.

Ravindra Jadeja too hot to handle at Kanpur

At an overnight score of 152/1, New Zealand appeared comfortably placed to earn a handy 1st Innings lead. However, the 1st session of Day 3 demonstrated how quickly fortunes can change when one is playing on tricky pitches such as the one in Green Park. The Kiwis lost wickets in a hurry once the 124-run stand between Latham and Williamson was broken by Ashwin in the 5th over of the day. Luke Ronchi and Mitcheel Santner attempted to rescue the Kiwi ship with gritty 30s, but could not take the team total too far past 250.

Pujara and Vijay construct century stand again

An unbeaten 107-run stand for the 2nd wicket appears to be an encore of the one Vijay and Pujara had created in the 1st Innings. K L Rahul(38) began proceedings for India in the 2nd Innings with a healthy mix of caution and aggression. His quickfire knock at the top ensured that India were not in a spot of bother too early in the all important 3rd Innings of the match. Fears of New Zealand bowlers mounting a quick fightback were put to rest by the Vijay-Pujara duo thereafter, as they took the attack to the opposition in characteristic style. Both batsmen managed to get to their half centuries by stumps.
