Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin took two wickets for India, dismissing openers Tom Latham and Devon Conway. Earlier, India were bowled out for 170 runs in 73 overs, setting a 139-run target. Rishabh Pant top-scored for Virat Kohli’s outfit with 41 runs.

Other than Pant, nobody from the Indian batting order could cross the 20-run mark in their second innings, courtesy of some good bowling by New Zealand. New Zealand bowlers began Day 6 on a strong note, with Kyle Jamieson taking the wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli. Trent Boult also took three wickets, with Tim Southee registered two dismissals. Meanwhile, Neil Wagner also took a wicket.
