Indore: Ashwin proved again why he is rated as the best off-spinner in the world by his control and guile. On Monday, he claimed 6 wickets against New Zealand in the first innings at Holker stadium in Indore.

On the least helpful pitch of the series, Ashwin’s wickets came largely through his deception in the air, which constantly disrupted the batsmen’s reading of line and length.

In the first innings, New Zealand, bundled out for 299, handed India a big 258 first innings lead.

India did not enforce follow-on and choose to bat in the second innings to allow bowlers much needed rest and bowl on a crumbling pitch on 4th day.

Ashwin had completed his 20th five-wicket haul to finish with six wickets for 81 runs. At the end of the day, India scored 18/0, extending their lead to 276 run with all second innings wickets in hand.

Gautam Gambhir retired hurt after aggravating a shoulder injury he had sustained while fielding.

Earlier, New Zealand started their first innings with a promise, adding 118 runs for the first wicket – first century stand for the first wicket in the series. But wickets started to tumble with Ashwin’s brilliance.

Brief scores: India 18/0 and 557/5 lead New Zealand 299 (Guptill 72, Neehsam 71; Ashwin 6/81) by 276 runsBrief Scores:
