New Delhi: India did wonders on the fourth day of the ongoing Kanpur Test against New Zealand. When the third day's play was over, there was a lot of pressure on the Indian team as Shubman Gill's wicket had fallen and Team India was aiming to score big on the fourth day. But the first session of the fourth day went completely in New Zealand's favour and Team India's 5 wickets fell for just 51 runs. But by the end of the fourth day's play, Team India made a great comeback and are now only 9 wickets away from victory.
When the fourth day's play started, India came up with Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agarwal thinking of a big goal. But New Zealand had something else in their heart, with New Zealand bowling well in the first session of the fourth day, with half the team returning to the pavilion for just 51 runs. However, Shreyas Iyer, Ravichandran Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha later batted brilliantly to take India to a respectable score. Shreyas Iyer also scored a fifty in the second innings, he had already scored a century in the first innings. Shreyas Iyer has now become the first Indian batsman to do so.
Wriddhiman Saha, who has been in constant question, also made a brilliant comeback and scored a half-century in the second innings. However, Ajinkya Rahane and vice-captain Cheteshwar Pujara, who were the team's top scorers in the Kanpur Test, once again failed to score big. India has set New Zealand a total of 284 runs, with just a few overs left for New Zealand to bat. Ashwin gave New Zealand their first blow and sent Will Young to the pavilion. Although the replays seemed to be will young not out, he could not take a timely review. Team India now need 9 wickets to win on the final day of the Kanpur Test. If the magic of Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja's spin goes on, no one can stop Team India from winning.
