Latham, Williamson lead strong New Zealand reply

  • India all out for 318 in first innings
  • Latham, Williamson hit unbeaten fifties

"We were in a similar position wherein we were 150-odd for one at one point of time. Obviously when the ball starts to get older and the batsmen tire a bit, you get a breakthrough and it can be a different ball game."

Resuming on 291 for nine, the Indian tail wagged to take the hosts past 300.

With number 11 Yadav (nine) at the other end, Jadeja (42 not out) took the onus of scoring on himself, contributing 26 of the 27 runs India added to their overnight score.

Jadeja hit Mitchell Santner for a six but could not get to his second test half century as Neil Wagner had Yadav caught behind to end a 41-run partnership for the last wicket.
