Gandhi and Tendulkar doing well to prevent any chances of a spectacular New Zealand comeback

New Zealand were in the hunt for days 1 and 2 and an hour before day 3 ended, Kumble's 3 strikes yesterday really hurt them

Not really in the hunt, you could say they weren't out of the game.

Stay on for the presentation ceremony

New Zealand's top order failed twice in the game and that really was the factor

So we speculate on who the man of the match will be. Gandhi ? Kumble ?

Yet another test gets a result in within 5 days

Fleming comes up

We had a good opportunity after winning the toss, we lost the opportunity in the 1st innings

We fought very hard in India;'s innings but again were at 17/3. The lower order has had to do far too much work, India has had some good opening partnerships and that's what we should do too. Vettori and Wiseman bowled well and put India under pressure

The cheers go up as Tendulkar walks up, his 4th win as captain, 1st in his 2nd stint, 1st win after 5 draws as captain

I congratulate all the team members. Anil, Srinath, Saurav bowled very well, Anil in the 2nd innings. Devang and Ramesh batted very well early on, Rahul batted well and solidly and then Joshi later on. We should have got at least 450 in the 1st knock and got them for less than 150

The Man of the match, the TWI commentary team, the 10fer man, Anil Kumble

Good to get past the 250 mark

59.4-17-134-10

I'm happy that everything went off well, the first innings the batsmen did very well. Srinath, Joshi, Harbhajan bowled very well in the 1st innings while in the 2nd Joshi and Harbhajan bowloed well

This was a 2 paced wicket, few spots, they create doubts in the batsman's mind

We didn't get wickets from any of the spots though

I knew if we got a wicket yesterday evening with the light deteriorating, we could put a lot of pressure

So that's it from us at CricInfo. Join us on 29 October for the final test at Ahmedabad, 10:00 IST (04:30 GMT)
