A probing spell by Mohammed Shami has kept New Zealand in check in the post lunch session on Day Three of the first Test against India on Saturday. Shami took the wicket of Corey Anderson for two, New Zealand are 38 for the loss of five wickets.
Shami started over the wicket post lunch but immediately turned to round the wicket to angle the ball in. He was successful as he went past the defense of Anderson as the ball clipped the leg-stump. New Zealand had gone in to lunch at 15 for four with Shami dismissing Hamish Rutherford and Peter Fulton in quick succession.
Shami bowled a lot fuller and so did the other bowlers and created more trouble for the batsmen. He kept Taylor on his toes finding his edges frequently which fell short of slips. Ross Taylor is batting with keeper BJ Watling.
