Indian spinners spark NZ batting collapse

Day three of the Test was about two identical scorelines.

The batting duo tackled the Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja with aplomb as they used their feet and the sweep shot to great effect at Kanpur's Green Park Stadium.

"Sometimes the ball spins here and sometimes it doesn't", he said.

But often, your plan is as good as the opposition allows it to be. As always, promise is an aspect that looks good on paper, because most fall short in deliverability, but that is not the case with the pair of Ashwin and Jadeja, even if they had their backs on the wall.

That meant Indian spinners had their task cut out on the third day. It's about the lines we play and we're working on that every day, trying to figure it out. "Ashwin and I spoke of that".

"There was definitely a bit more turn".

Watling said how they perform in the opening session of the fourth day will determine which way the match will turn. Today, they began by bowling four consecutive maidens.

With a combination of intelligent field placement and tight bowling, Latham was worked out by Ashwin.

Williamson (65no) and Latham (56no) took the tourists to 152 for one at tea, in reply to India's 318 all out. The 151-ball vigil ended at 58.

As wickets continued to tumble, Jadeja dismissed Mark Craig and Sodhi off successive deliveries.

Ravindra Jadeja's press conference was hilarious.

"You wait for ages for a bus and then two come along at once".

Ashwin Unbelievable Spin Makes Batsman Stun.

At stumps of an extended day's play, India were 159 for 1. And it's telling that it wouldn't be there worst performance of the day.

"I know we have a great bunch of fighters in this team and we love playing the game. The key to that is picking up the length early, if you do that you can go forward or back". Latham also remained solid against both the spinners and pacers.

New Zealand 1st innings: M Guptill lbw Yadav 21, T Latham batting 56, K Williamson batting 66; Extras (b-8, nb-1) 9. The batsman picked the delivery that was full on the sixth stump.

This was after Murali beat both the left-handed batsmen and wicker-keeper Saha with a turning ball to concede four byes. The angle and the spin would have taken it away from the off-stump, but the umpire thought otherwise and raised his finger.

New Zealand have yet to win a Test in India after former India coach John Wright's side triumphed in the second Test of the 1988-89 series at Mumbai.

Equally interesting comments were made by Banger in the Indian press conference a few minutes later when questioned on whether rain ending the days play had caused them frustration. By the time they learnt, they were already coping with a crash of wickets. That was an advantage. Four batsmen fell in the morning session, and after lunch, Jadeja hastened the end with a triple-wicket maiden.

Besides Kumble's reading of the wicket, Jadeja must be thankful to Kiwi left-arm pacer Neil Wagner for the rough caused on his follow through.

Once the spinner came on, the game changed, and in a hurry too.
