Ravindra Jadeja to Henry Nicholls. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Yadav. New Zealand have beaten India by 7 wickets in Christchurch to seal a 2-0 series victory, making a potentially tricky chase of 132 look simple in the end. Arriving at Hagley Oval this morning, the tourists knew they needed a partnership or two to push their lead towards 200 and put the pressure on the Black Caps. Trent Boult and Tim Southee soon thwarted that plan, mopping up the final four wickets cheaply with skilful swing bowling. If there were any nerves in the Kiwi camp they didn't show because Tom Latham and Tom Blundell calmly went about constructing a century partnership to flatten India's hopes. Kyle Jamieson scoops the Player of the Match award for his brilliant allround display, while Tim Southee gets the series award for his superb bowling across both games. Virat Kohli and his team will know that their batting wasn't up to scratch in this Test or the previous one, ultimately that has cost them dearly. It's a welcome return to form for Kane Williamson's men though, they are a formidable unit in home conditions and have jumped up to third place in the World Test Championship table.

APPEAL! Ravindra Jadeja to Henry Nicholls. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, by Pant, appeal made for Caught. Big appeal but India are just clutching at straws now. They take a punt on a review anyway and replays show Jadeja has overstepped. Nicholls didn't edge it in any case.

The Indian captain is coming on for a rare trundle. He used to be a very handy medium pacer but doesn't bowl too much these days.

OUT! Bowled. Trent Boult to Mohammed Shami. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, missed to. Full delivery which does the trick after the short ball. Late to get his bat down and the stumps get scattered.Very good display from the Kiwi bowlers in the evening session after being a little wayward early on. They managed to wrap up the Indian innings for 242 after India went into tea at 194-5. Kyle Jamieson was the chief destroyer taking a maiden five wicket haul in the process.Should still be enough in it for the bowlers with the new ball so this will be an interesting end to the day.

OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Hanuma Vihari. Short, down leg side moves in front pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Watling. One shot too many from Vihari. He wanted to hit every Wagner bouncer out of the park even though he had already hit eight from the over.With that will be the tea break. New Zealand capped off the session they way they started but the middle part will have disappointed them. They allowed the partnership between Vihari and Pujara to flourish with some loose bowling. That wicket though might have changed everything.

A quick fifty for the exciting youngster while Pujara has been very watchful. Still movement for the bowlers as the session ended so one or two quick ones after lunch could change the game massively.

OUT! L.B.W. Trent Boult to Mayank Agarwal. In-swinging half volley, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to. The two card trick works a dream for Boult.

The ball doesn't have to go far so ball-tracking confirms the on-field decision.

Start of India Innings. India have it all to do after losing the first Test rather comprehensively. In home conditions New Zealand have got a formula which rarely lets them down and to go with that their record at the Hagley Oval is very good. With the covers taken off the green wicket looks bowler friendly so winning the toss could be crucial. Some team news, New Zealand welcome back Neil Wagner which is a huge bonus to an already strong attack. India on the other hand are without the services of Ishant Sharma because of an injury, Umesh Yadav will be his replacement. Ravindra Jadeja also comes in for Ravichandran Ashwin.New Zealand's bowlers will have first use of the wicket after Kane Williamson won the toss. Going to be tough for the Indian top-order.

OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Kyle Jamieson. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Pant. Jamieson is denied his first fifty by another spectacular grab. Pant has to sprint and put in a full length dive, getting his gloves to it a couple of inches above the turf. That was amazing entertainment.India have a lead but it is a slender one thanks to some lower order hitting by New Zealand. Just seven runs seperate the two teams after the first innings so this Test is shaping up beautifully. At one stage it seemed as though the tourists would be further ahead than that, Kyle Jamieson had other ideas though. India's fast bowlers were excellent and Ravindra Jadeja faultless with the ball. The highlight of the session though was unquestionably Jadeja's athletic catch to remove Neil Wagner.

OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Neil Wagner. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control to deep square leg, by Jadeja. Oh my word, that is one of the greatest catches of all time. That is not an exaggeration at all. Jadeja, who else, flings himself back and plucks it with one hand when it looks as though he has no chance of even getting near it. Wagner can't believe it because he nailed the shot and thought it was sailing to the boundary. Unbelievable stuff, find that on the highlight reel later for sure. Shami eventually gets his man but the credit should go entirely to the fielder. India need one more wicket.

Thrashed through the covers, Jamieson's long levers are a big advantage against the spinner. He has the license to be positive with just a couple of wickets left for the Black Caps.

Taylor's wicket came from a poor stroke but the others were all due to the immense skill of the bowlers. Don't go anywhere, this afternoon is shaping up to be vital for the series.

Mohammed Shami to Tom Latham. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, thick edge to third man for 3 runs, fielded by Rahane. That's a gritty half century by Latham and the crowd show their appreciation. It's certainly not been easy for him this morning and he's had to be very disciplined. New Zealand want to see him bat as long as possible into the afternoon.

FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Henry Nicholls. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Sublime timing, it looked as though Nicholls was just looking to clip that for a single however it rocketed off the middle of the bat all the way to the fence. Good signs for the left-hander on his home ground.

OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Ross Taylor. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump down the track flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Yadav. A rush of blood and Taylor has given his wicket away. He will be furious with that, no need for the shot and he went through with it even though the length wasn't there. Hitting across the line and against the turn, the ball ballooned up and swirled around in the wind. Umesh never took his eyes off it and completed an important catch for India.

Ravindra Jadeja to Tom Latham. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Jadeja. That was a fascinating first hour. Umesh and Bumrah were right on the money from the word go, accounting for Blundell and Williamson to leave the Black Caps wobbling. Latham has been stoic at the other end and is now looking to accumulate with Taylor for company. The pitch is offering something for the bowlers and it seems to have quickened up so it's a really intriguing battle in sun-soaked Christchurch.

He wasn't very far forward and the umpire took his time before raising the finger. Michael Gough doesn't get many wrong so the review is in vain, ball tracking shows it was trimming the bails.

Welcome to coverage of the Second Day of the Second Test between New Zealand and India at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. The Black Caps are in a fantastic position thanks to the hard work of their fast bowlers yesterday, although the tourists will be regretting a missed opportunity. Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma Vihari all got to fifty and then got out without kicking on to make a match-defining score. The Kiwi openers have a chance to show them how it's done today, both resuming in the 20s after a solid finish last evening. India's quick bowlers will find some assistance and they are very skilful so it should be an enthralling contest as the visitors seek to battle back.

Kyle Jamieson was brilliant as he took five wickets and since tea it has been one way traffic.Set up pretty nicely then as we head into day two, join us at the same time.

The non-striker over-committed and even though the bowler missed with his throw on the turn, Williamson was there to tidily complete the job.Just 34 runs added by India this morning, they will have wanted more from their last four wickets but New Zealand were sublime with the ball. The fact that Southee and Boult continued to find prodigious swing and seam movement will be a source of encouragement for the tourists. 132 will be the target for the hosts, it won't be easy however they will be very confident of getting there to complete a 2-0 series win.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Mohammed Shami. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Blundell. It was only a matter of time before Shami went for a big swipe and he's picked out the man in the deep. That's the kind of shot that's more suited to the end of a white-ball match, certainly not what India need with the very capable Jadeja at the other end and all the time in the world to play with. Hitting into the wind it was going to take something special to clear the fence, Blundell was always favourite to grab it.

He got a long way across his stumps looking to cover the away swing and it meant his attempted tickle was further behind his legs than expected.

Welcome to coverage of what will likely be the last day of this Test series between New Zealand and India. Hagley Oval was treated to an action-packed Sunday which saw sixteen wickets fall and the game move on at a breakneck pace. With the surface proving incredibly difficult for the batsmen, runs are at a premium and the tourists will fancy their chances if they can get a partnership going this morning. The Black Caps won't want to chase many more than 150 so it's all set up for a thrilling finish in Christchurch.

Trent Boult to Hanuma Vihari. Short, down leg side on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Latham. Wickets have tumbled aplenty on Day Two in Christchurch, 16 of them in total on a remarkable day of Test cricket between New Zealand and India. The balance of the contest see-sawed back and forth with the bowlers enjoying conditions throughout. The tourists started the morning in need of quick wickets and their fast bowlers didn't disappoint, ripping through the Black Caps with a relentless display. Mohammed Shami was the pick although Ravindra Jadeja provided the most memorable moment with a spectacular diving catch in the deep. Lower order resistance from Kyle Jamieson boosted the Kiwis seven runs short of the visitors and they took that momentum into the evening with more exceptional bowling. India's lead is a precarious one and they only have four wickets left so there is every chance the series will conclude tomorrow.

In Wellington India's number three was out bowled leaving the ball alone, this time he is playing at it but the result is the same. The angle of the left-armer coming around the wicket is exacerbated by the prodigious late swing, there wasn't much the batsman could do about it in the end. Boult clearly enjoyed that one.

This time however he doesn't waste a review, knowing full well it was smashing into the stumps. Kiwis well and truly on top now.

Ravindra Jadeja to Henry Nicholls. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Yadav. New Zealand have beaten India by 7 wickets in Christchurch to seal a 2-0 series victory, making a potentially tricky chase of 132 look simple in the end. Arriving at Hagley Oval this morning, the tourists knew they needed a partnership or two to push their lead towards 200 and put the pressure on the Black Caps. Trent Boult and Tim Southee soon thwarted that plan, mopping up the final four wickets cheaply with skilful swing bowling. If there were any nerves in the Kiwi camp they didn't show because Tom Latham and Tom Blundell calmly went about constructing a century partnership to flatten India's hopes. Kyle Jamieson scoops the Player of the Match award for his brilliant allround display, while Tim Southee gets the series award for his superb bowling across both games. Virat Kohli and his team will know that their batting wasn't up to scratch in this Test or the previous one, ultimately that has cost them dearly. It's a welcome return to form for Kane Williamson's men though, they are a formidable unit in home conditions and have jumped up to third place in the World Test Championship table.

FOUR! Ravindra Jadeja to Tom Latham. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Latham wants to get this finished in a hurry. He doesn't need to have a sighter, first ball against spin and he slaps it to the rope. It wasn't even that short from Jadeja, just a high class shot.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Tom Blundell. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Crunched down the ground with authority. They say the on-drive is the toughest shot to play but based on that evidence it is a piece of cake for Blundell. India looking a little flat, defeat is almost certainly on the way for them.

Perfect session for New Zealand, they are just 86 runs short of a 2-0 series win with all of their wickets remaining intact. India needed something special this morning to drag themselves back into contention, instead they lost their last four wickets cheaply. Their fast bowlers have beaten the bat on many occasions but Latham and Blundell have stood firm.

New Zealand’s win in the opening test of the series ended in just their 11th test win in 58 previous matches against India. It was in stark contrast to their series whitewash in India when they last met in September/October 2016. New Zealand’s batting fell short in those matches, but it was India last time out – carted for just 165 and 191 as Tim Southee took nine wickets in the match. New Zealand won by ten wickets, needing just ten balls to seal victory.
