Sehwag, Ashwin bowled over by their better halves on Twitter

  • Virat Kohli was presented with the Test mace India v New Zealand 3rd Test Indore 4th day

The mesmerising offspinner claimed a career-best 7-59 on Tuesday to give him 13 scalps for the Test and a destructive 27 at an average of 17.77 for the series.

Currently, the Swabi-born bowler has a tally of 95 wickets from 16 Tests.

India has soundly defeated the visiting New Zealand side by huge margins in all the three test matches and one normally tends to brush aside criticism when the team is on such a winning spree.

Ashwin also leads the allrounders' table, while team-mate Ravindra Jadeja surged to a career-best third, joint Moeen Ali.

"Ashwin is the most intelligent bowler that we have now". We knew pitches will not be dry as monsoon is everywhere and especially in Kolkata, which is a newly-laid wicket. "We have that attitude and we do get the results". But the seamer looks to have made a spirited comeback with his stellar performance in the ongoing test cricket against the Kiwis. A target in excess of 450 was always going to be hard even if New Zealand had time on their hands, in the end, Ashwin's seven-wicket haul meant they didn't even last the day. 27 wickets - the second-best return by an Indian in a 3-Test series - explain the damage the off-spinner caused in the Test series.

Pujara struck an unbeaten 101 as India, who started the day on 18 without loss, declared their second innings on 216 for three in the afternoon session. It wasn't just one individual.


Virat Kohli arrived in Dharamsala for the first of India's five-match one-day worldwide series against New Zealand and was instantly smitten by the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayan town.

It did appear, though, the New Zealand players were well aware of what the Indian batsmen may be trying to do.

Indore: India's most successful off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, in a series of tweets, had alleged that the success that current generation of spinners are enjoying is because of spin-friendly pitches at home.

"We wanted to show better cricket than we did, but full credit to India".

The biggest disappointment, Williamson said, was they had been unable to put those learning into practice as individuals as the series wore on.
