New Zealand v India 3rd Test at Wellington

IND v NZ, 3rd Test, Wellington, Day 5: India register historic series victory against New Zealand (IND 1:0)

India has clinched its first test series win in New Zealand in 41 years when the third test is drawn after a rain-shortened final day.
India won the first test by 10 wickets and the remaining two matches were drawn. A century by Ross Taylor his second in successive tests and his record 142-run fifth wicket partnership with James Franklin (49) carried New Zealand to 281 for eight when rain began to fall Tuesday.
India declared its second innings Monday at 434 for seven, with an overall lead of 616, and New Zealand was still 335 behind when rain hastened the close of play.

IND v NZ, 3rd Test, Wellington, Day 4: India six wickets away from historic series triumph

India needed just six wickets to clinch a historic series triumph over New Zealand after tightening the noose on the hapless Kiwis in the third and final cricket Test at Wellington today.
Set a near impossible target of 617, the hosts were struggling at 167 for four before bad light brought an early end of the fourth day's play. The Indians first declared their second innings at 434 for 7 in the morning session by adding 85 quick runs to their overnight tally and then had the Kiwis on the mat to put themselves on the threshold of a 2-0 series triumph.
With one more day left, the Kiwis have to bat out three more sessions to save the game on a Basin Reserve pitch which has not shown any signs of drastic deterioration.

IND v NZ, 3rd Test, Wellington, Day 3: Gambhir hits another hundred

Gautam Gambhir who hit his sixth Test century (167), and Rahul Dravid added 170 runs for the second wicket, effectively taking the game and series away from New Zealand at Wellington. After Dravid fell for 60, Gambhir and Laxman (61) took India to 314 before both fell in quick succession.
India were 319 for five, 501 runs ahead at stumps with MS Dhoni (16 not out) and Yuvraj Singh (15 no) at the crease.

Zaheer Khan claimed his sixth five-wicket bag and Mahendra Singh Dhoni held six catches as New Zealand was dismissed for 197 runs in reply to India's first innings of 379 on the second day of the third cricket Test Saturday.
Zaheer had figures of 5-65 and Harbhajan Singh had 3-43 as India established a 182-run first-innings lead at Wellington. Earlier, India was out in the morning after resuming its first innings at 375-9. At stumps, India had reached 51-1 with Gautam Gambhir 28 not out and Rahul Dravid 9, an overall lead of 233.

IND v NZ, 3rd Test, Wellington, Day 1: Dhoni, Harbhajan help India reach 375 for 9

Brisk half-centuries from Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh helped India post a commanding 375 for nine in the first innings on the first day of the third cricket Test against New Zealand at Wellington on Friday.
Dhoni (52) and Harbhajan (60) helped India recover from a middle-order crisis after Sachin Tendulkar (62) scored a half-century. In the morning, the visitors were asked to bat at the Basin Reserve. For New Zealand, Chris Martin picked up three for 95 while Iain O'Brien and Tim Southee got two wickets each.

IND v NZ, 3rd Test, Wellington: India vow to chase win in decisive Test

India have vowed to chase victory in the third and decisive cricket Test against New Zealand starting at Wellington Friday, rather than seal the series by seeking a draw.
India lead the series 1-0, and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is adamant his team will be trying for their 100th Test victory instead of a conservative draw that would ensure their first series victory in New Zealand since 1967-68.
New Zealand's only question mark is over batsman Daniel Flynn, who missed the second Test after injuring his hand in the first. He batted in the nets Thursday and a final decision will be made on Friday morning.
Their selection quandary is whether Jeetan Patel will stay in the side to partner Vettori as a second spinner, or be replaced by another pace bowler. If New Zealand win the toss and decide on the strategy of taking advantage of any early favourable bowling conditions, Patel would likely miss out.
The 20-year-old pace bowler Tim Southee has returned to the squad after struggling in the one-day series against India, and he will be vying for the final place with Patel and pace bowler Kyle Mills. The often windy conditions in Wellington may give the bowlers some assistance, and the cool autumn conditions in the New Zealand capital may favour the home team, who have won their last four Tests against India at the Basin Reserve.
