Their first innings is in disarray after losing five batsmen but New Zealand spinner Jeetan Patel says they know the art of "fight" and hoped of making a comeback in the first Test against India.

New Zealand are trailing India by 332 runs and saving the follow-on would be a daunting task for them on Saturday.

 

Asked whether he missed another spinner bowling in tandem with him, Patel said, "I had a lot of help from Chris Martin, Boult, Bracewell bowled on Friday

 

The results came from that. It is nice to have another spinner at the other end but you have to find a way. I wouldn't have got the wickets I got today if the other bowlers hadn't bowled as well as they did."
