Really good swing bowling's exposing Pujara even on an Indian wicket. It would be incredible if he manages to survive this.

Pujara plays an out of control shot but gets away with it. Getting antsy

SRT gets hit on the pad again. Had that swung a little bit, that'd have been out.

SRT's struggling with straight and full deliveries.

One really can't. He's the last of the titans so speak from the golden generation of Indian batsmen. SRT, VVS, Dravid and Ganguly got runs everywhere around the globe and made them into a competitive side outside India, and a formidable one in their own country.

Kohli has replaced just one of them and may outscore everyone other than SRT, even that may be subject to discussion in a few years, but I don't see 3 other guys stepping up. Maybe Dhoni and a new and improved Yuvraj can replace a couple more for a few years, but guys like Rahane, Pujara, Sharma, Tiwary and Badrinath and nowhere near that class especially in foreign conditions. Even Gambhir isn't. I think they'll see many more Jaffers, Chopras and Dases before they get another Kohli. How guys like Rahane and Bisla do at the highest level remains to be seen.

I don't see India remaining very competitive in the longer formats outside the subcontinent once SRT retires.

NZL is quickly losing the plot by bowling to Pujara's strengths

What happened to those swinging deliveries at pace all of a sudden?

i guess we'll have to see how they go outside of the subcontinent, give them a bit of time as they've not got to much experience and some of them might be capable of learning. chand looks very good at this stage of his career and has performed more than once in australia so he could be someone who will step up eventually.

Hi. Just wanted to comment on your "Indian wicket" bit. This is a rather alien Indian wicket in Bangalore. Its' hard, bouncy and due to non stop rains for the past one month it remained covered right upto a day before the test began. So it has a lot of moisture underneath.

The other factor you need to keep in mind is Bangalore. Its one Indian city that stays rather cool throughout the year. Conditions are a lot like an English summer. Thats one of the reasons why the British Indian army built the city as a rest home for weary soldiers and its also very close to Ooty.

So, I disagree with this "Indian wicket" bit........

^Please read one of my earlier posts in this thread where I classified this Bengaluru wicket as quickish. What I meant by "Indian" is "familiar", not "slow and low".

Chand has a long way to go IMO. I rate our own Bijauy ahead of him at this point. Luckily for India, they play enough quality FC, Academy and A Team cricket to develop him. We don't have that luxury.

NZL has lost the plot completely. The Fat Lady is in the house already.

of course chand does have a way to go but he's impressive for his age, not just for talent but for the fact that he performs big innings in important matches and is capable of doing it outside of the subcontinent, i know u19s is far from senior international cricket, doing alright in FC cricket so far though so imo he has a great chance of becoming a really good player, but not expecting it yet of course.

Vintage from SRT. Stand tall and deliver with perfect touch and economy of movement. He is the personification of elegance and class when on song like this.

Yet another twist in the plot as rain mitigates India's momentum.

It would be even more interesting if the day gets rained out. India's lost momentum and a degraded wicket would put NZL right back in the game.

SRT edges one for through the slips. Nobody's at 3rd slip.

SRT gets bowled as Southee gets him. Bowl fast, full and straight with a bit of swing and let the chips fall where they may.
