Test Updates: India crush NZ by 372 runs; win series

Jayant continues his wicket ways as Somerville is caught at short leg off an inside edge for 1.

This is Jayant’s fourth wicket of the innings as India stand just one wicket away from the series win.

The umpires check for the replays. It has come clearly off the inside edge and the fielder at short leg has taken it cleanly as India close in on big win.

Jayant nearly picks his fifth of the morning as left-hander Ajaz Patel is beaten by a flighted delivery, trying to hit it across the line, before he defends the rest oft he over.

Ashwin ends New Zealand’s misery as he claims the wicket of Nicholls. The left-hander comes down the track but is beaten and wicketkeeper Saha completes an easy stumping.

New Zealand fold for 167 in 56.3 overs in their second innings, to lose the match by 372 runs.

India claim the two-match series 1-0.

New Zealand last just 45 minutes on the fourth day, losing five wickets for 27 runs in in 11.3 overs.
