Day 4 : Ravichandran Ashwin Puts India On Road to Victory

Share

3 quick wickets from Ravichandran Aswhin in the 4th Innings has put India firmly on the road to victory at the end of Day 4 in the 1st Test against New Zealand. The visitors ended the day on 93/4, after being set a massive 434 for victory by Kohli’s men. Earlier in the day, aggressive batting from Rohit Sharma(68*) and Ravindra Jadeja (50*) had catapulted India to a score of 377/5 at Tea, before declaration.

In what turned out to be a vastly improved batting performance from India in 2nd Innings, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja blew the winds out of the Kiwi sails today. Both batsmen had strike rates in excess of 70, as they put up a 100-run stand for the 6th wicket in less than 20 overs. While Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner had looked menacing after the wickets of Vijay, Pujara, Kohli and Rahane, they found no answers to the counter-attack from Rohit and Jadeja. The quick runs made sure India had enough time to bowl New Zealand out in the final innings.

That Ravichandran Ashwin is a menace to deal with in the 4th Innings is very much a foregone conclusion in Tests in India these days. He lived up to that reputation today by sending back both Kiwi openers within 4 overs. New Zealand’s best chance of putting up a fight on the final day vanished as soon as Ashwin trapped skipper Kane Williamson (25) plum infront of the stumps. Ross Taylor (17) survived a couple of insanely close calls for leg before wicket, but ultimately had to walk back after a freak run out. Luke Ronchi and Mitchell Santner were at the crease at stumps.
