But it was when the centurion from the last innings, Shreyas Iyer took the responsibility on his shoulders. He, initially, got back from Ashwin, to rescue India from 51-5. And then he formed a vital partnership alongside Wriddhiman Saha. Both Iyer and Saha scored fifties respectively. Also, not to forget, Axar Patel also played a healthy hand in the second innings. All these rescuers stood as stone in the middle and frustrated the Kiwi bowlers with their application.There wasn't much happening on the wicket, and Indian still fancied that to take their lead to 284 runs. With a total on their back, Ashwin and Axar Patel. As the day ended, Latham survived but Young didn't. Ashwin got his man, and New Zealand are already one wicket down.
And that will be stumps on Day 4. India are well and truly on top as they have 279 runs to play with on the last day of the Test.
