    The New Zealand openers, Tom Latham and Tom Blundell will open the batting for New Zealand. The Indian players are out in the middle. Jasprit Bumrah will start the proceedings.

    So, 242 on the board. A decent total one would feel if the Indian bowlers can striker early in this final session. Let's see how it pans out once the Kiwi openers come out to face the Indians.

    Kyle Jamieson is down for a quick chat. He says that it is a special feeling to get to a 5-fer in front of the home crowd. Hagley Oval he mentions is very special as he has played a lot of cricket here. Further says that like Wellington the pitch has something for the fast bowlers and they are pretty satisfied with restricting India to 240 odd runs.

    Earlier in the game, after being asked to bat, Indians did not start well but Shaw raked up an aggressive half ton and scored runs briskly. After his wicket, India lost the way and lost quick wickets before Pujara and Vihari crawled India back into the game with a 81-run stand. Apart from the three mentioned, who all got to their respective half tons, none of the Indian batters left any mark with the bat.

    If it was Southee in the second session, Jamieson took the onus upon himself in this one as he ripped apart the Indian batting. He ended up with a fifer, his first in Tests to force the collapse. Boult removed Shami with a ripper to close the innings.

    Wow! That was some collapse from the Indians. Vihari went just before the Tea. Pujara walked in with a new partner in Pant but it was all about wickets falling in quick succession as the session started. They lost 5 wickets for 45 runs in this session with 26 of those coming between Bumrah and Shami. Pant and Jadeja who had the responsibility of taking India towards a good total after a very good stand between Pujara and Vihari but they failed to do anything of note.

    Over: 63 | 13 Runs

    Trent Boult to Mohammed Shami

    OUT! TIMBER! Boult finishes the innings with a ripper! Shami was probably thinking another bouncer but Boult dishes out a fuller and inswinging one. He tries to keep it out but is late in bringing his bat down. The ball goes behind and sends the off pole for a walk. INDIA ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 242.

    The Physio walks out to the middle for the necessary concussion tests. He is looking fine though. And we are ready to go now.

    0 62.5
    Trent Boult to Mohammed Shami

    Ouch! Shami is hit on the helmet. He takes it off and checks. Tells Boult that he is fine. Shami backs away for another slog but the bowler follows him. He tries to pull but misses to get hit on the helmet.

    6 62.4
    Trent Boult to Mohammed Shami

    SIX! Back to back sixes now and Shami and Bumrah are adding valuable runs for India. Boult bowls one in the arc of Shami. He swings hard, connects and sends it sailing over wide long on for another maximum.
