    India vs New Zealand Day 2, 3rd Test at Indore: India had killed off the Kiwis in the second Test itself and captain Virat Kohli twisted the knife that much more to ensure they don't come out of extinction to offer a challenge for the rest of the tour with a majestic 200 plus (211). Kohli has also thereby, become the first Indian captain to score 3 double hundreds. But more than the individual score, he ensured India piled up a gargantuan 557/5 on day 2 of the third cricket Test in Indore. He declared after that and put Zew Zealand in to bat and they replied with 28 for no loss with Martin Guptill batting on 17 and Tom Latham on 6. India is now in control of the Test and helping Kohli put Team India in that situation was the man in scintillating form, Ajinkya Rahane. Disappointingly, he failed to notch up a double hundred of his own, as he got out at 188. This crucial partnership created a fourth wicket record in India at 365. Rohit Sharma scored 50. The New Zealand attack was totally listless and looked to have been just about going through the motions. However, in a major setback, Ravindra Jadeja received three demerit points for running on the pitch and was also fined 50 per cent of his match fee. (Reuters)
