Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Martin Guptill with a peach of delivery which gave the much needed breakthrough for India. He gave 46-ball 66 which was a flying start to his team and scored 106 in the partnership of Henry Nicholls. At a desperate need of wicket leg spinner stuck at the right time.
The ball hit the top of the off stump after pitching on middle and leg stump. The commentators Aakash Chopra and Spinner Harbhajan Singh called the delivery as the ball of the decade.
Chahal continued with another big wicket of the right hander Kane Williamson. This New Zealand captain gave simple catch to Mayank Agarwal.
India posted total runs of 196 earlier. KL Rahul’s 112 and Shreyas Iyer’s 62 resulted in decent total of the visitors. But this score couldn’t be enough for the hosts who chased down on the back of three half centuries from players like Colin de Grandhomme, Guptill and Nicholls.
In the ODI Series India have been whitewashed and now looking forward to turn things around in the Tests.
