However, India was bowled out for 170 on the Reserve Day after Kyle Jamieson wreaked havoc again and dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in the first hour. Rishabh Pant managed to keep the scoreboard going with 41 runs but wickets kept on falling from one end.

Later, at one stage, New Zealand were 44 for 2 in the 139-run chase, however, Kane Williamson (52*) and Ross Taylor (47*) took his team safely over the line.
