Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane broke some records on second day in Indore. And they broke the New Zealand back as well. While the India captain scored his second double century in Test cricket, the vice-captain scored 188 runs they shared one of India’s highest partnerships in Tests and help their team declare for 557/5 in Indore. Kohli struck his second double century in Tests and became the first Test captain from India to achieve this landmark.
The Indian batsmen punished a out-of-sorts New Zealand bowling attack in front of a 24, 00 thousand strong Indore crowd that cheered every runs from the bat of Indian batsmen.
Resuming on Saturday’s 267/3, Kohli and Rahane expected the short stuff from New Zealand players but batted brilliantly to deny the bowlers any wicket in the first two session on Sunday. Rahane, was uncomfortable against the short pitched delivery on Saturday, was once again attacked with the same length but the Mumbai batsman was showed great temperament to not play any risky shot.

New Zealand survived the nine overs and were 28/0 at stumps.
