The Kiwis were bundled out for 299 thanks to some brilliant bowling from Ravichandran Ashwin who ended up picking six wickets in the first innings. India did not enforce the follow-on and have come to bat in the second innings.This how the Twitterati reacted to Ashwin's spell and Gambhir's injury.
A new job for Taylor?

Who's next ?
Vijay got injured after the 1st Test in WI. Now he has seen 3 fellow openers get injured. #jinxedopeners— Saurabh Malhotra (@MalhotraSaurabh) October 10, 2016
Bad luck Gauti!
Before his return, Gambhir was hurt at not playing, now#indvsnz— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) October 10, 2016
What's up with batting again?

That would be sad!
Guess Gambhir's comeback would be complete if he manages to run himself out again #IndvNZ— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) October 10, 2016
Now Sir has a complaint!

Viru at the commentary box!
On Ashwin, Viru says I don't respect offspinners but he's from India so I will. Have batted against him, never got out & gave him beating😂😂— P₹akash $inha (@Predicto_Praky) October 10, 2016
In his career, Gambhir has run more yards just to be sent back by his partner than he has run to actually complete a run.— Aayush (@slicesofIife) October 8, 2016
Kiwis being toasted!
