Saha remained unbeaten on 54 while wickets tumbled at the other end. New Zealand batting once again collapsed as Bhuvneshwar Kumar steamed in and chipped in with some key wickets.

BJ Watling and Jeetan Patel adding some crucial runs at the start of the day and helping New Zealand post 204 on board. India had a healthy lead to their name but once again their top-order floundered and put pressure on the middle-order to fire. Kohli played a composed knock of 45 but it was Rohit Sharma who steal the show at Eden Gardens. He went on to play one of the best innings of his Test career as he smashed a brisk 82 off 132 balls.

India will look to add some more runs on Day and invite New Zealand to bat.
