India vs New Zealand, 3rd Test, Indore, Oct 8 – 11 2016, New Zealand tour of India

Match Result: India won by 321 runs

Player of the Match: Virat Kohli

Match Report: Ashwin has now become the leading wicket-taker ever in the offspinners list in Test Cricket. Ashwin has been producing magical spells for more than half a decade now. As the 2nd test of NZ tour of India 2021 begins tomorrow, let’s have a look at one of the best bowling performances of Ashwin against New Zealand. Let’s hope he does it again.

Rahane scored 188 here in this test match. We all know how he is faring since then. He might be dropped to keep Iyer in the squad. Regardless of the selection, Jinx played a fine knock here. Of course, Virat’s 211 just stole the spotlight. Let’s hope Virat scores a century in the test match that begins tomorrow.

Kane Williamson | New Zealand captain: “That’s fair, we knew coming in, it was going to be tough. We wanted to show better cricket than we did, but full credit to India. They outplayed us in all areas and we have to weather these wounds. I suppose in this match, we can look at a number of areas we didn’t do too well. India from the start outplayed us, getting such a big total.

And we knew it would be a tough task batting on this pitch last. They’re No. 1 in the world, a fantastic effort. The beauty of it is that we have a young side, and being exposed against the best bowling attack in the world is that we can learn. It’s a shame we haven’t done so quickly enough. It’s tough to swallow, but the opportunity to learn playing against some of the best bowlers in the world in these conditions is a big thing”

Virat Kohli | India captain: “Absolutely, couldn’t have asked for anything better. The bowlers have responded beautifully every time we’ve been in pressure. Someone has always put up their hand. And that’s the difference, this team is up, we get wickets in bunches, we have that attitude and we do get the results.

We made it clear that the bowlers deserve to be in this position and it’s time they express themselves. Don’t hesitate in playing your shots. If you see Pujara hitting a fast bowler back over his head, it is the best example of expressing yourself. This is a proper team series win. It wasn’t just one individual. You can leave Ash aside, he is not to be mentioned in the XI.

Jadeja with the bat in the first game, Saha in the second, Rohit with those crucial knocks. We keen his numbers, we discuss his Man of the Series awards after every series. No. 6. No. 7… Credit to him I wish him well.”
