Mohammed Shami‘s wayward bowling helped Jesse Ryder to start his innings in the usual aggressive way by smashing three boundaries in the second over of the day. Shami drifted down the legs of Ryder’s legs and the burly batsman had no problems in glancing them for fours.


The deep fielders being in orthodox positions further helped the Kiwi opener who played fine on the leg-side. New Zealand are on 33 for no loss after five overs.


In the first over by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Varun Aaron misfielded and gave away a boundary to kickstart the New Zealand innings.


New Zealand are chasing 279 to seal this series with an unassailable lead. India’s innings was boosted by scintillating knocks from MS Dhoni (not out 79) and Ravindra Jadeja (62 not out)
