Twitter reacts to India’s  huge victory over New Zealand in the third Test

India’s impressive show in Tests continued as they won the third and final Test by 321 runs against New Zealand to win the three-match Test series by 3-0.

Just like the previous two Tests, New Zealand bowlers took the upper hand in the initial phase of the match by reducing the hosts for 100 for 3. But a 365-runs partnership between Ajinkya Rahane and  Virat Kohli saw India taking the upper hand in the match. India declared their first innings by scoring a mammoth 557 runs. In reply, New Zealand began brilliantly after their openers added 118 runs for the first wicket but their innings was derailed by Ashwin’s 20th five-wicket haul. The off-spinner took 6 for 81 as the visitors were bundled for only 299 runs. In the second innings, India scored 216 with the help of century from Cheteshwar Pujara and a fifty from comeback man Gautam Gambhir, setting New Zealand an improbable target of 475 runs.

Chasing such a huge target, New Zealand never looked in contention as they were losing wickets at regular intervals. They were eventually all out for 153 to hand India a massive win. Ashwin once again starred with the ball as he took 7 wickets.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the match:
