Mumbai: India needed less than an hour's play on Monday morning to take the last 5 New Zealand wickets and wrap up the 2nd Test. Jayant Yadav picked up 4 wickets and R Ashwin wrapped up the final wicket as India hammered New Zealand by 372 runs, their biggest-ever victory in terms of runs in Test cricket.

New Zealand, who were bundled out for 62, managed 167 in their second innings as they lost their last 5 wickets for just 27 runs on Day 4 morning. After holding fort to draw the first Test in Kanpur,



New Zealand ran out of steam on a difficult Mumbai pitch where spinners ruled roost. Despite Ajaz Patel picking up a record-setting tally of 14 wickets, New Zealand conceded the series as their batters failed to step up against a high-quality Indian attack.

This was also India's 14th successive Test series victory at home -- a record-extending streak. Also, India have won each of their 11 Test series played under Virat Kohli's captaincy at home.
