New Zealand on the ropes, India close in on big win

  • India set New Zealand 434 to win
  • Visitors 93-4 at stumps
  • Ashwin claims 200th test wicket

Jadeja, who scored 42 not out in the first innings and claimed five wickets with his left-arm spin, continued to have a good match.

The left-hander clobbered three sixes en route to his second test fifty before breaking into a bat-twirling celebration.

"Still six wickets to go," New Zealand bowling coach Shane Jurgensen said.

"If you get a partnership you can score at a decent rate. More importantly, you can bat for time. That's our goal, to fight for as long as we can."
