New Zealand close in on series leveling win

South Africa will need their dependable lower order to rescue them one final time this summer on the final day of their tour to New Zealand on Wednesday after their top order was badly exposed on the penultimate day of the third Test in Hamilton on Tuesday.

On a day dominated by the hosts, South Africa reached stumps on a woeful 80/5 in reply to the Black Caps’ first-innings 489 – still trailing by 95. This happened despite no obvious alarms in the pitch, with the tourists let down by some poor shot selection and a horrendous run-out.

Ganguly: "To see an Australia team on the backfoot against Indian fast bowling is a great sign"

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday said that it was refreshing to see Indian pacers led by Umesh Yadav put pressure on Australia in the ongoing series, adding that Yadav has been bowling really well.

The pacer has picked up 17 wickets from 4 Tests, including the three wickets he took on day three in Dharamsala to help India stay within sniffing distance of a 2-1 series win. India now need 87 runs to win after the tourists were bundled out for a meagre 137 in their second innings.

The duo were involved in intense sledging while Wade was batting. Wade remained 25 not out at stumps as the Aussies crumbled to 137 all out. India require another 87 runs for victory after they were 19/0 after batting for six overs in the second innings.
