5:42 am on 22 November 2010

A draw is the best result the New Zealand cricketers can hope for after they were batted out of a winning chance on day two of the third and deciding test in Nagpur.

After being dismissed for 193 early on the second day India's top four batsmen each scored half centuries and the home side were 292 for 2 at stumps.

They already lead by 99 runs with the not out batsmen Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar on 69 and 57 respectively.
