India finally won the Kolkata Test against New Zealand by 178 runs and took an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the 3 match series.
With this win now India has become No.1 ranked Test team.
New Zealand openers made a positive start after India set them a stiff 376-run target riding on wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha’s second unbeaten half-century of the second cricket Test in the pre-lunch session on day four here on Monday.
New Zealand were 55 without loss in their second innings at lunch, with their two confident-looking openers — Tom Latham (31) and Martin Guptill (24).
Matt Henry (3/59) and Santner (3/60) were the other principal wicket takers for the visitors.
