India followed up their bowling performance on day 2 with an impressive showing with the bat on day 3. Rohit Sharma was the one who led the attack as India lead New Zealand by 339 runs. Rohit seems to have answered his crtitics and justified his selection by scoring a resilient 82 off 132 balls.

Earlier, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma steadied India’s innings after they lost Shikhar Dhawan and Ajikya Rahane in quick succession to put the hosts in a spot of bother at 43-4 before the end of the 13th over. Kohli put 45 runs on the board before falling to Trent Boult. Wriddhiman Saha then stood with Rohit and the two went on to make 107 runs for the seventh wicket. Rohit looked set for a century but edged the ball to Luke Ronchi in the 60th over bowled by Mitchell Santner.

Even then, Rohit and Saha’s partnership has put India firmly in the driving seat with a lead 339 runs with two wickets remaining going into day 4.
