    Really poor playing of spin bowling from us.

    The pitch hasn't even done that much.

    No its not
    Light meter is out there. The reading is still better than the one on Day 1. Once you set precedence on day 1 thats what you check for throughout the test.

    Newzealand have justified their number one title. Great performance.

    It does not matter that some Indian players were missing coz in India even if you defeat a Ranji Team that's commendable.

    As per MCC:

    Assume in a multi-day game (say 5 day game), the agreed hours of close of play on the last day is 4:30pm, then

    the last hour commences at 3:30pm on Day-5.
    game must continue till 4:30pm or minimum of 20 overs have been bowled ( whichever is later).
    if 20 overs are already bowled before 4:30pm, then the game shall continue till 4:30pm.
    if 20 overs are not bowled when 4:30pm is reached, the game shall continue beyond 4:30pm till 20 overs are completed.

    guess if u watched the game, commies were going on that very point, if u see, its always minimum 90 overs for the day. Teams normally only bowl 15 max in an hour on a normal basis in hr, then drinks, then another 15 and lunch, 15 drinks, 15 tea, 15 drinks, 15 end of play. They are often relaxed or not in a rush during the earlier part of plays and sometimes dont even get the 15 overs in an hrs passage/block as they are more focussed on strategising and going with flow. Its only in the very last session and then the very last hr of the game that if a game does become very tight that only then teams start to go hard at it and try to squeeze as many overs in that hr to be able to get to a result. There is also an additional 30 mins extra offered to a team on final day in case a result is close (but bad light is not a factor whatsoever)....

    It does not matter that some Indian players were missing coz in India even if you defeat a Ranji Team that's commendable.
    Although Iyer was definitely an upgrade from Kohli

    And Southee was an upgrade over Boult.
    As I said, these things don't matter.
    They played well and have drawn a match.

    Rahane is not a great caption as people's think . I'm sure Virat with agressive captaincy would have won its for india. rahane is not a person who inspired bowlers in the fields.

    You're really stupid if you think saying an Indian immigrant is "owning" them. I merely meant they were Indian origin kiwis.

    Ironic all the more coming from a Pakistani, given most Pakistanis take credit for anyone even if he's one eighth Pakistani by blood.

    New Zealand's Rachin Ravindra and Ajaz Patel came up with a determined performance to hold off the Indian spinners in the final hour of the Test to earn a commendable draw in Kanpur.

    India started the day knowing they had to get wickets and get them early in order to force the issue on the final day. But New Zealand were in no mood to give them an inch in the morning session in Kanpur. Tom Latham and especially Will Somerville batted expertly showing great patience and application on the crease.

    They were largely able to frustrate the Indian pacers and the spinners, who were hardly able to carve out an opening. The visitors headed to lunch unscathed with a draw looking the likeliest of the three results possible.

    India were much more willing to try things out in the second session and a change of tactic would bring about their first wicket of the day. Going round the wicket, Umesh Yadav peppered Somerville with a short delivery, which finally brought an end to his excellent knock of 36.

    Tom Latham would then bring up back-to-back half-centuries in the match, joined by skipper Kane Williamson on the crease. He would though be undone by the slow nature of the wicket as he chopped on a wide-ish delivery from Ravichandran Ashwin onto his stumps for 52.

    Williamson and Taylor then dug their heels in and it seemed that the visitors would not have to endure any further damage in the session. But Ravindra Jadeja struck in the final over of the session, trapping Taylor for 2 as the Indians headed for tea with renewed vigour.

    Henry Nicholls couldn't last long after tea as Axar Patel got his first scalp of the innings, getting him lbw plumb in front of the stumps. He only contributed 1 run to the scorecard.

    Williamson and Blundell then embarked on a blockathon but the skipper was undone by Jadeja who dismissed him with an lbw call on 24. India now had genuine belief that they could get the job done.

    Rachin Ravindra joining Blundell on the crease frustrated India for a few overs before the latter was dismissed in an unlucky manner being bowled by Ashwin for 2.

    For all intents and purposes, Jamieson and Ravindra looked comfortable enough at the crease and seemed to be headed towards clinching a draw for the visitors.

    But India had one final ace up their sleeve with the second new ball available and Ravindra Jadeja made full use of it. He got the lbw dismissals of Jamieson and Southee. The delivery to Southee especially was a peach as it pitched on middle and leg and straightened enough to trap him plumb.

    All of a sudden it became a nail-biting affair as India needed 1 wicket for a victory but had a battle on their hands with the light quickly dwindling. Standing in their way were Rachin Ravindra and Ajaz Patel.

    They eventually ran out of time as the pair batted out 52 deliveries to clinch a well-deserved draw for the Kiwis. It was high drama at the end as the light meter was out after every over but the grit of the two batters was something to be highly commended.

    The two sides will now face off in Mumbai for the second and the final Test of the series on 3 December with the score evenly poised.

    It's actually made the match interesting otherwise with NZ batting last , the game would have finished very quickly.
