Scorecard

An eventful third day, which included a century from Tom Latham and a declaration from New Zealand A, ended with India A in control of the first unofficial Test in Lincoln. India went to stumps on 137 for 2, with an overall lead of 242.

New Zealand had begun the day on 105 for 4, with Latham and Reece Young at the crease. The pair added a further 69 runs, with Young going on to make a half-century. The lower-middle order though did not put up too much resistance for the hosts, and soon after the fall of Latham, on 132, the innings was declared with a view to force a result in the four-day match. New Zealand were 234 for 8 at that point, 105 behind India.

Captain Abhinav Mukund once again contributed with 41 off 60 deliveries, before Anustup Majumdar and Mandeep Singh put on an unbeaten 64-run stand for the third wicket to leave India in a comfortable position overnight.
