What a great day's cricket so far from the Black Caps. Resuming at 79-3, India has been dismissed for 305, and Dan Vettori has had no hesitation in enforcing the follow-on.
Thwe New Zealanders have been on-song today, and their fielding in particular was a lesson to the visitors. Every chance offered by the Indian batsmen was accepted with glee. Jesse Ryder has starred again taking the huge wicket of Rahul "The Wall" Dravid, and taking a couple of catches, the last one, off Zaheer Khan's bat a stunner.
The Indians have been off the pace in this match; almost complacent. That's strange for a team which hasn't won a series on these shores sincre the 1967-68 season. If the New Zealanders can pick up a wicket or two in the 17 overs of play remaining today, the TAB will be further reviewing their odds on a Kiwi victory - we should have put a lazy fiver on them at $7.00 on Friday morning!

UPDATE: Day Three ends with India at 47 for one - still trailing by 267 runs, with Virender Sehwag back in the hut. An outstanding three days for the Black Caps.
