New Zealand in reply to India’s 436, has lost seven wickets for 205 at Lunch on Day 5. India needs three more wickets to taste the victory.
When the top half of the batsmen are struggling against Indian bowlers with the highest score posted by a top order batsman is 25 by Kane Williamson, then you feel for lower order batsmen of the Kiwis.
But Ronchi once again showed the skill and temperament to survive in Indian conditions and scored 80 odd runs, but Indian bowlers sensed the test of victory as they claimed New Zealand’s first wicket of the day after 15 overs in form of Ronchi.
But among all the wickets it was Mohammad Shami’s reverse swing that caught the attention of cricket fans on Day 5.
The batman was injured Mark Craig, who was about to leave for home, had no clue against Mohammad Shami’s reverse swing.
Mark Craig tried to play the through the off side, but he missed the length and the ball uprooted the middle stumps with a classic reverse swing that was too hot to handle.
