India’s biggest-ever Test win by runs on NZ, win 14th straight series at home

India recorded their biggest win (by runs) in Test cricket after beating New Zealand by 372 runs in the second Test in Mumbai and clinched the two-match series 1-0. India’s previous biggest Test win (by runs) had come in Delhi in 2015, when India beat South Africa by 337 runs.

India has now won 14 consecutive Test series at home. Indian spinners produced a clinical show as Virat Kohli and Co defeated Tom Latham-led New Zealand by 372 runs to win the second Test. This is India’s 14th consecutive series win at home in the longest format of the game.

The Indian spinners once again proved to be very hot for Tom Latham-led New Zealand as the visitors were bundled out for 167 on the fourth day of the Wankhede Test in Mumbai.

Rachin Ravindra and Henry Nicholls started the first session with some boundaries before Jayant Yadav took four wickets in quick succession to put India in the driver’s seat. R Ashwin removed Nicholls as the last batsman to help India win their 14th consecutive series in home Tests.

Earlier, India had set a target of 540 for New Zealand after a century partnership for the first wicket between Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara in the second innings.
