Virat Kohli’s India forgot how it feels to lose the Test. What to lose, Kohli forgot to draw. India, who came to New Zealand after winning seven drawn Tests, did not lose badly in Wellington. The Indians can only target New Zealand by 4 runs in the second innings on the fourth day of the first Test at Basin Reserve. New Zealand lost the target without losing a wicket.
On the fourth day, the game was played only 5.4 overs.India started the day with 5 runs for 5 wickets. New Zealand veteran paceman Tim Southee and Trent Bolt Milley have smashed the Indian innings. The Saudis took 3 wickets and the Bolts took 4 wickets.
Bolt forced Ajinkya Rahane to wicketkeeper BJ Watling in the third over of the day. Rahane has returned to 25. Saudis bowled Hanuma Bihari in the next over. Rishabh Pant made a big contribution to the end of India’s run which ended at 4 for 5. Wicketkeeper batsmen added 3 runs for the tail batsmen. The 25-run punt returned as the ninth batsman for the team at 5. The last match of the over, Yashpreet Bumrah returned to India’s innings and got the fifth wicket to get the fifth wicket. New Zealand scored 5 runs in the first over.
India have been unbeaten in the Test since losing the Perth Test to Australia in the 27th. Kohli won eight of the last nine Tests before the Wellington Test. The last three of them again in the innings. But all those happy memories came to New Zealand and flew in one blow.
India, who had a first-rate taste at the World Test Championship, lost 5 wickets to South Africa in the last 20 Durban Test. After that test, however, the team lost three innings in the innings.
Wellington’s victory is New Zealand’s 100th win in the Test. It took three matches and three years to win the hundredth test. As a seventh team, the Kiwis won five matches in Tests. Australia, New Zealand’s Tasman neighbors won the most Tests
