The two-Test match between India and New Zealand saw a number of good performances from either side in a closely contested battle.

The Second and Final Test at Wellington ended in a draw as expected. Virat Kohli scored his 6th Test century as a consolation for India in an otherwise disappointing tour of New Zealand. In 5 ODIs and 2 Tests, India could not post a single win.

Brendon McCullum is moving close to registering his maiden Test triple century. New Zealand continued to frustrate India in their second innings with the tourists managing to take just the one wicket!

The match is still in favour of India but not by much!
