#INDvsNZ: Forget India, New Zealand end in ignominy


New Zealand team trembled in front of Indian bowlers as no player could score even in two digits other than Tom Latham (10) and Kyle Jamieson (17).

Indian bowlers took revenge of the team’s dismissal entirely on spins and they gave the visitors such a hard time that it was difficult even to understand the ball let alone, play it for shots. 

Kiwis could make merely 62 rums out of their 326 targets, the lowest test totals made in India.

This was also the lowest test total by any team against India and the lowest test total ever of all time in Wankhede.

Ravichandran Ashwin was the most successful bowler for India ad he dismissed 4 of the visitor’s players, two of them were dismissed for zero run in the game. 

The deadly India attack began with Mohammad Siraj three consecutive in the first five overs. He dismissed both the openers, Will Young (4) and Tom Latham (10), in the third over of the game. 

Siraj continued taking revenge for India’s dismissals on the spin by a single Kiwis player Ajaz Patel, as he became the reason for Ross Taylor (1) going back to the dressing room.

The visitors have made history with Ajaz Patel taking 10 wickets haul, becoming third man in cricket to have ever done that after Anil Kumble and Englishman Jim Laker, but they must be hurt with the recent denting by Indian bowlers in Wankhede. 

Ashwin, who went down for duck while batting, bowled out Henry Nicholls for 7 runs, and then India-born Rachin Ravindra had to go back to the pavilion on the ball of Jayant Yadav that caught by aggressive captain Kohli.

Ashwin then took two wickets one after another in the 19th over, where Tom Blundell played the ball for a shot, but unfortunately, it landed in Pujara’s hands, and Tim Southee went back for a duck on another Ashwin’s delivery.

With the wickets of Somerville and Jamieson, India registered their innings win against the Kiwis.
