India are set to resume Day Three on 130 for four in reply to New Zealand’s 503 in the first Test at Auckland. India are still in trouble with only 6 wickets in hand and still needing 173 more to avoid the follow-on. Dhawan and Pujara fell to loose shots while Kohli and Vijay got snorters. Rohit has played well since then and gone past fifty. Rahane too has played sensibly and is giving good company to Rohit. The partnership is worth 79

 

Rohit is batting on 67 while Rahane is on 23. The conditions in the morning will be the best time for the pacers to strike. Neil Wagner, Tim Southee and Trent Boult got enough movement in the air and troubled the batsmen on numerous occasions.

 

It will be a test of character for the Indian batting to evade the follow-on and keep themselves alive in this match.

 

Brief scores:

 

New Zealand 503 (Kane Williamson 113, Brendon McCullum 224, Corey Anderson 77; Ishant Sharma 6 for 134, Zaheer Khan 2 for 132) lead India 130 for 4 (Murali Vijay 26, Rohit Sharma 67*; Trent Boult 2 for 20, Tim Southee 1 for 27) by 373 runs.
