Williamson century puts New Zealand on top in Hamilton

South Africa endured their toughest day of their tour to New Zealand after a superb unbeaten century from Kane Williamson on day three of the third and final Test took the hosts to stumps on 321/4 at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Monday.

The Black Caps’ captain made 148 (216 balls, 14 fours, 3 sixes) and batted for most of the day alongside Jeet Raval, who struck a career-best 88 (254 balls, 10 fours), taking their side to the close with a seven-run lead.


India squeeze out 32 run first innings lead in Dharamsala

India were bowled out for 332 at lunch, taking a crucial 32-run lead in their first innings on the third day of the fourth and final cricket Test against Australia on Monday.

Resuming the day at 248/6, overnight batsmen Ravindra Jadeja (63) and Wriddhiman Saha (31) added 69-runs before the former was dismissed by pacer Pat Cummins in the 113th over. Cummins bowled a wide length ball which Jadeja tried to drive without using his feet and guided a thick inside edge onto the stumps.


KL Rahul: "Thoroughly enjoyed batting"

Indian opener Lokesh Rahul on Sunday said he was disappointed at not being able to capitalize upon the good starts into big score.

Rahul batted steadily to score 60 runs with nine hits to the fence and a six before being dismissed while trying to hit a short pitched delivery from Pat Cummins over the onside.


Lyon using overspin and bounce as key weapon against Indian batsmen

Off-spinner Nathan Lyon was delighted to have utilised the sharp turn and venomous bounce on offer at the Dharamsala pitch as his four-wicket haul pulled things back for Australia, who reduced India to 248/6 in their first innings on the second day of the fourth and final cricket Test on Saturday.

India were cruising with Lokesh Rahul (60) and Cheteshwar Pujara (57) having taken the hosts to 153/2 with Lyon looking not efficient, among others. But in the post-tea session, Lyon turned out to be the most lethal bowlers, extracting a lot of bounce off the surface that created troubles for the Indian middle-order.


Lyon takes 4 as Australia keep India in check on Day 2 in Dharamsala

Off-spinner Nathan Lyon captured four wickets in the final session to hand Australia an advantage on the second day of the fourth and final cricket Test against India on Sunday.

Lyon returned figures of 4/67 as India reached 248/6 in their first innings at stumps. Ravindra Jadeja was batting on 16 with Widdhriman Saha on 10 at the other end when the umpires decided to call it a day. The hosts now trail Australia's first innings total of 300 by 52 runs.
