Day 4 (Lunch): Zimbabwe lead by 292 runs with 5 wickets remaining

What Zimbabwe have done in the morning's session is to move their run rate into the 3s - now at 3.31.

Much will depend on how the pitch is playing and what sort of target they will feel comfortable defending.

Andrew Schulz: "I think it was Pickwick who described Australia's attack as paper-thin during the recent series in India. There is no substance in the universe to describe how thin this Indian bowling unit is."

Thakur to de Grandhomme, FOUR runs, oh, it's all rolling the Kiwi way right now! Fuller ball, off the inside edge, and through to fine leg. Fifty off just 21 balls!

Nothing better than waking up to the sight of Taylor and Williamson bossing it on a Saturday morning.

3.50pm India have been humbled inside three days, but victory didn't look so straightforward at this time yesterday. New Zealand had a significant chunk of the deficit to wipe out with the lower order, and Kyle Jamieson delivered with a counter-attacking 49 to restrict India's lead to just seven runs. Then Boult and Southee got into the thick of things to wrap up India's second innings early, before their openers struck half-centuries to seal the win.

New Zealand took 47 minutes to take the four remaining wickets and then their openers made the 132-run target look easier than it was in conditions that continued to be torturous for the batsmen. The depth in New Zealand's five-man seam attack outshone India's three-man party, which was missing Ishant Sharma and also had to do with an injured Mohammed Shami in the second innings.
