Statistical highlight of day three of the opening Test match between India and New Zealand at Auckland on Saturday.

# New Zealand (105) have posted their fourth lowest total against India — their lowest Test total is 94 at Hamilton in the 2002-03 Test.

# New Zealand’s lowest total vs India at Auckland is 101 off 61.4 overs in March 1968.

# Test cricket’s lowest ever total is registered at Auckland — 26 off 27 overs by New Zealand vs England in March 1955.

# India, while batting second, have conceded a first innings lead of 301, their second highest to New Zealand. They conceded a first innings lead of 314 in the 2008-09 drawn Napier Test. The scores were New Zealand (619 for 9 wickets declared) & India (305 & 476 for 4).

# India have dismissed their opponent’s first five batsmen for 25 runs or less five times in an innings — once each against Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Australia, West Indies and New Zealand.

# Seventeen wickets were taken on the third day — the second most in an Auckland Test. Eighteen wickets fell on the first day in a Test match involving Australia and New Zealand in March 1974.

# In New Zealand’s first and second innings, a difference of 398 runs was witnessed, their highest against India.
