Live Commentary

Over 97. 4 runs. Bowler: Trent Boult. India: 366/10(rr 3.77)
96.3
OUT! Caught. Boult to Sharma. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, outside edge to wicketkeeper, fielded by Watling. Sensational finish to the match. Sharma backing away edged the ball onto his shoulder and it flew to Watling to spark jubilant scenes. Amazing effort from India to get this close. They were down and out after conceding a first innings lead of 301.

That was a truly great test match which kept changing by the over. New Zealand's 105 all out after declining to enforce the follow-on gave India a sniff and they fought so hard to come close to knocking off 407. Shikhar Dhawan made a fine hundred and when he was in with Virat Kohli at 222-2 New Zealand nerves were jangling. Brendon McCullum was lucky that his seam bowlers were magnificent and one of them was always able to provide a breakthrough. Neil Wagner took eight wickets in the match and kept his calm when MS Dhoni and the tail threatened to win the game.

Kane Williamson and McCullum set up the game with big scores in New Zealand's first innings of 503 and after conceding such a huge deficit India did well to come as close as they did. New Zealand take a 1-0 lead to Wellington for what promises to be another cracking contest between two evenly-matched teams.

95.6
OUT! Bowled. Wagner to Dhoni. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge. Drama. Dhoni drags the slower ball bouncer onto his foot and the stumps. They checked to see if Wagner had split the return crease with his back foot and it looked like he may have grazed it but Dhoni has gone. Massive moment.

FOUR! Wagner to Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs.

Wagner to Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for no runs.
93.5
OUT! Caught. Wagner to Khan. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away pushing, outside edge to slips, fielded by Taylor. Wagner has often got the crucial breakthrough in the match with his whole-hearted persistance. Khan was stepping away to leg and Wagner followed him. The edge went fast and low to Taylor at first slip. Great take.

92.5
APPEAL! Boult to Dhoni. Length ball, middle stump moves in front flick, hit pad to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Watling, appeal made for L.B.W. Boult was screaming for the decision. It would have clipped the outside of leg stump so it was a good decision.
