Jayant Yadav took four wickets on Day 4 and R Ashwin dismissed Henry Nicholls to help India win the second and final Test against New Zealand in Mumbai by a whopping 324 runs. Rachin Ravindra, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, and William Somerville were the first four wickets to fall to Jayant, while Henry Nicholls was the final nail in the coffin for Ashwin. The Indian spin duo’s efforts resulted in New Zealand being bowled out for 167, giving the hosts a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

Ashwin completed his own four-wicket haul in the next over, tempting Nicholls to come down the track, before deceiving him with spin – Wriddhiman Saha completed an excellent stumping, and the victory was sealed.
The margin of victory is India’s highest ever on home soil.
