India got to their biggest win in Test cricket as they got better of New Zealand on Day four.
The first innings began with Mayank Agarwal’s 150 and Shubman Gill’s 44. On the other hand, Ajaz Patel ran through India’s batting order and with the wicket of Mohammed Siraj, he completed ten wickets, becoming just the third man to achieve this feat in Test cricket.
However, his heroics were cut short by poor batting performance from the visitors as they bundled for just 62. Mohammad Siraj gave the first break and ended with three wickets while Ravi Ashwin finished off with four wickets.
Virat Kohli opted to bat once again rather than putting New Zealand back to bat.
India pushed Pujara to open as Gill suffered a niggle while fielding. Mayank Agarwal, on the other hand, got to yet another fifty, scored 62. Pujara made 47, so did Gill. Virat Kohli had a good start, made 36 but couldn’t convert it to a big score yet again. With Axar Patel’s 41, India made 276 for 7.
Chasing a big total of 540, New Zealand needed someone to stand up for the team. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Daryl Mitchell was the only one to get past half-century, made 60. While spinners ran through the batting order, Henry Nicholls tried his best to hold on to his wicket. The middle order batter made 44 but was final wicket to fall on Day four.
Jayant Yadav gave the opening for India on the 4th day morning and Ashwin finished off the Test match, wrapping it by dismissing Nicholls.
Both Ashwin and Yadav ended with four wickets as India got to their biggest win of their Test career. With this, they also wrap the series 1-0.
