New Zealand yesterday had a tough game playing against India. The visitor side was sent back to the pavilion by the Hosts at a score of mere 299 runs against India’s 557. In spite of the 5 runs that were given to the Kiwis to compensate the foul by Ravindra Jadeja, they were not able to make it back.
Ashwins five star performance that helped him clinch 6 kiwis in his spinning ball, by giving only 81 runs in 27.2 overs. He also had 5 overs where not a single run was given, 5 maidens. Two kiwi batsman were bowled out by the “Danger Area Runner”,Ravindra Jadeja. And the rest were sending back to the pavilion while they were running for greedy singles and doubles.
Three half centuries from Martin Guptill(72), Jimmy Neesham (71) and Tom Latham(53) never helped Kiwi’s to go to the score of 300. Indian starts today with a headstart of 257 runs.
