India Vs New Zeland 2nd Test Day3 Highlights Reports

At Stumps on Day3 India lead the 2nd Inning by 339 runs with 2 wickets in hand, it didn’t look too rosy when they were 43 for 4 at one stage. Bhubneshwar Kumar is batting on 8* and W.Saha on 39*. India started day3 expecting New Zealand to bowl out cheaply in 1st Inning and get huge lead however, Jeeten Patel making test comeback played beautifully for his 47 runs which get New Zealand past 200 run mark. Bj Walting also chipped in with useful 25 runs on a pitch which started to keep low and slow on 3rd day of the 2nd Test Match.

However India able to get useful lead of 112 runs in 2nd Test match by dismissing New Zealand for 204 runs. India went into lunch for 12 runs on the board and 10 wickets intact. But soon after lunch New Zealand bounce back with 6 wickets in post lunch session and India looking in deep trouble with all top gun back in the hut, Only Virat Kohli made substantial contribution with 45 runs and lead only 218 runs and 4 wickets in bag it look like New Zealand is of to something at Eden garden, Kolkata.

But as soon as Wridiman Saha arrives to the crease Rohit Sharma and Saha got into good partnership to take India lead past 300 runs. Looking at the pitch how it behaved on Day3 it’s easy to say that India is on verge of another victory and if they able to do the same they will become Number 1 Ranked Test team in the world.

At once Rohit Sharma looked to became first player to score century in the series but at his personnel score of 82 he misread Mitchell Santner arm ball and nicked to wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi, in same over Ravinra Jadeja dismissed after hitting Santner for six over cow corner.

With pitch behaving with uneven bounce now it looks like we will have the result in this match on day4 itself. New Zealand who is without their regular captain Kane Williamson will have mountain to climb in 4th inning with target of 350.
