Day 3 belonged to Kane Williamson's boys!
A day which has New Zealand written all over it! Not that India played badly or were very poor, but this is just a display on Day 3 by the Kiwis which has been supreme and they have pushed the Indians hard and it will surely be Williamson, who walks back with a smile on his face. 

Right then. New Zealand are behind by 116 runs and with the batting line-up that they have, they will be confident to turn that deficit into a lead, unless they have a collapse, like how India did. On the other hand, India knows that with their lead being so low, they will need quick and timely wickets and they will be aiming for the same. The action on Day 4 will begin at 3:00 pm IST, but, as you already know, the build-up will be up earlier. Do join us then. Until then, cheers and take care! 

India did not find the wickets with ease!
Not a bad day for India, but it wasn't quite smooth sailing for them. With the bat, they crumbled when their skipper was sent back and were not able to end on the 250-270 run mark and just finished on 217. They bowled well, but Latham and Conway did not let the Indian bowlers have a sniff. A very well bowled slower ball, by Ashwin deceived Latham and in what turned out to be the last over of the day, Ishant removed the well-set Conway too. 

Did well with both bat and ball!
The Kiwis knew that they had to bowl well, as the duo of Kohli and Rahane were very assured in their stay out on Day 2 and they did just that. Jamieson bowled a peach and got rid of the Indian skipper and after that, there was an absolute collapse as Jamieson led the charge and forced the downfall of the Indian middle order, which saw them end on 217. Their openers - Conway and Latham were slow but were steadily building their innings. It took some time and they crossed their 50-run stand too, but a good delivery from Ashwin saw the back of Latham. Conway reached his half-century but a loose stroke saw the back of him, towards the end of the day. 

217 (92.1)

101/2 (49.0) CRR: 2.06
New Zealand trail by 116 runs
